Would you play at my wedding?

Lauren got in touch with me because as she put it, "Is so in LOVE" with my flowergirl tin invitations. In love so much she wanted one for her flowergirl and a special one also made for her ringbearer... why not? the little tots needed to be appreciated too, right!

In addition to having the little ones participate in such an event, Lauren also needed a way to ask a cousin who plays the violin to also be apart of her wedding day. Lauren was very open to any design.
Sarah is a 19 year old, artsy kind of gal so in an elegant way using chocolate, cream and pink... This was my vision.

2 Sisters as Matron of Honors

A customer named Crystal, got in touch with me about a week ago and wanted to order the "Will you be my Matron of Honor" cards from my Etsy shop which she loved.

I don't usually post all my items on my blog because there are so many in which I adore, but I needed to post these two. Crystal's two sisters are unique in their own way as stated by Crystal, "Adele is more traditional, we call her Emily Post" while "Kellye is the more down to earth" sister.

Crystal needed 2 cards that catered to her sisters: This is what ExQuisiteInVitation produced!

Mount Dora Arts & Craft Fair

I had the opportunity of attending the Mount Dora Arts & Craft Fair about 2 weeks ago and needed to post this on my blog because I was so excited to be there. I first heard about this fair 2 years ago when a moved to Florida. It's been said, "It's the largest in the state"...with way over 100 vendors and more than 300,000 in attendance ...with showing dates on both Saturday and Sunday. Upon arrival the town had specialized parking that enabled guests to take a bus to the events, which I thought was way cool and quaint! I walked with my daughter as we seen a blissful of handmade goodies such as hair bows, leather bound books, potpourri, soy candles, home decor, key chains ...and so much more. I enjoyed myself and can't wait to attend again next year, maybe I'll vend because there were hardly any paper goods ;).

Mexico+Baby Shower=?

Yes, Mexico+Baby Shower=?...A friend of mine's wife recently got in touch with me in order to design some baby shower invitations for her sister in-law. The sister in-law was married in Mexico, was having the baby shower (she's having a girl) at a Mexican Restaurant, and again wanted to tie all this Mexican talk into a baby shower for a girl. Now when I think of baby girls, I think of pinks, plums even yellow. On the other hand, Mexico is more primary-red, green, blue....etc. So how do you mix the two....see the outcome!
Sweet pinata's with falling little candies and apoxy circles for texture!

Have you ever....

Seen anything so magical? This past weekend as I was driving into my garage a glimpse of color distracted me and to my surprise...A RAINBOW!!! and it was a full one, from one end to the next. I was so excited to see this (I'm originally from NJ, where the pollution is soooo heavy) but in Florida- it's nothing but open fields.

Amber & Zaq: July 2009

Another long overdue post.

Amber blogged about my damask matchbook mints on her blog zrust! Earlier this year she expressed how her and rad hubby Zaq were planning their intimate wedding at home and again the infamous damask was there theme including the colors of red, black, and white. I was able to make her matchbook mints to coordinate with her colors, half in black and white and the other in red and black...She loved em'

Post-wedding, Amber was so siked about her Photographer's ale, and I have to tell you the photo's were phoenomial! You can check out Amber & Zaq's fabulous punk nuptials here, which even included Zaq's serenading Amber with his guitar...So SWEET!

Below is her awesome color coordinated candy buffet (see damask mints-top left). If your getting married in the Minneapolis area, be sure to check these talented two photographers!

Jennefer & James: 10.9.09

This is a post "over due"...I know!
Jennefer contacted me through my Esty shop because she was having a butterfly theme wedding and in her words, "kept coming back to the shop because she loved this butterfly designed invitation". Such a pleasure to work with, Jenn and I could stay on the phone for 1-3 hrs. talking it up.
Her colors included plume, which is a HOT 2009 wedding color. Jennefer's cake was also decorated with shades of purple butterflies.
To bring texture to the invitation it was fully wrapped with a screen printed paper full of plume butterflys and tied together with a lavender satin ribbon.

The butterfly motif was also placed on her placecards and the screen printed paper was also used for them and the table markers.
Congratulations Jennefer & James, already into 1 month of married....
