A Modern Baby Shower Tin-vitation

Sometime ago I rec'd a call from a sweetvoice, Yasmine. Yasmine was surfing the net and came upon my website and loved the tin-vitation's. According to Yasmine, this was definately something she wanted for her baby boy shower with it's uniqueness!

We worked on a design together, something with modern flair incorporating her color choice of tangerine and teal. The tins included dotted circles with all her shower information shown in its individual circle. I also included matching automobiles of rockets, trucks and cars and for fun colored confetti and irredescent cute! The outside of the tin were dressed up in tangerine ribbons and more circles: her name tags with dangling "its a boy" charms. All of this cuteness were delivered to her guest in kraft boxes and matching wrap around labels. I definately had fun making these for her and she loved them too!

Candice & DeQuann 4.3.2010

A day so sweet! My brother in law is now married and of course, ExQuisite InVitation had part in the event. The theme was close to my heart "BUTTERFLIES"! The mood- Enchantment....I wish them both the best.

The invitation was placed into a jet pouchette. The color palette was black, white and sangria. The invitation wording was on white stock with ornate corners and a double butterfly motif was placed on the invitation with five smaller flutterbugs to represent their children. And I just can't forget the rhinestones.

The outer was tied with sheer/satin ribbon with a tag printed with the guest name...a complete present.
Yes, she wanted the LOVE favor magnets too! This has got to be my most popular item this year so far. 1,100 and still counting.
All of the tables were named in relations to enchanting fairytales places or stories such as: neverland and fantasia... all set in black frames.

Chonte....Where have you been?

I know I's that time again. WEDDING SEASON! And I'm being pulled all across the Universe, but in a good way.

Lots of treats to come, hope everyone's year is going swell.

Pleated Ribbon Placecards

A client by the name of Misty reached me through my Etsy shop for a custom placecard inspired by this ring pillow.
She mentioned, "I wanted someone who works well with ribbon". I guess she didn't know who she was missing with. With a mom and grandmother whom are both seamtresses, fabric has been apart of my whole life.

Misty wanted her placecards to be used for the honorees involved in her lucky are they? Misty's placecards will be displayed at her wedding standing up in placecard holders.

Have a Bright Night Wedding

When I saw these cool lighted umbrella's I said, "OK!" now there could be something here. Who has ever walked in the rain at night? I know I have, it could be leaving work or going out to eat at night and it just happens to rain.

We'll how about taking some very romantic wedding photo's at night...maybe sneak out while everyone else is eating dinner! These illuminated beauties would make some great wedding props and you could be helping out your photographer also with that extra light.

You won't be breaking the bank, Bright Night umbrella's are only $26.

Tangerine Fields

I've been wanting to post about this wonderful invitation that has been in the shop for about a month now...So here it is!

Tangerine Fields:

Lying with both eyes closed in canary grass, the wind is mild and the sun makes beads of sweat on my brow. A fragrance so sweet entices my senses and with one open eye I see it clear as day, a tangerine bloom all alone. I smile, lie back down and look to the sky and say, "I think I'll call this tangerine field".
This tin invitation is delivered to your guests with their name printed on a belly wrap in vellum.
And nicely tucked into a custom kraft package to be mailed...such an eco feel!
I had fun designing this unique invitation and collaborating with a great designer, Milkysupplies who creates beautiful handmade organza/chiffon blooms in various colors. The designer is all the way from Turkey and it was such a pleasure working with her.

Hope you enjoyed the pics!
