Twin Baby Shower

When our friend Nicolette was pregnant with twins, a boy and girl, we didn’t want to throw a baby shower that was too “baby-ish”. The inspiration for the shower was Noah’s Arc & the animals “two by two”. The shower was held at The Rose Establishment, a coffee and tea shop in downtown Salt Lake City. Letterpress stationery included invitations complete with washi tape detail and favor tags (guests filled their own tea bags with assorted loose teas). The girls started a tradition of giving the babies our favorite books when I was pregnant with my first son two years ago. I printed personalized bookplates for the twin’s library as a keepsake from the event. We decorated the table with newspaper boats, air plants and succulents, and place cards were flagged on blue velvet jar cakes for each guest. (The blue velvet turned out darker than we expected, but Nicolette’s favorite color is black anyway and they were delicious.) We used inexpensive quilting fabric for table runners in alternating pink and green patterns and my next project is to make them into lap quilts for the babies. Hopefully by time they are born! Erica and Caleb from the The Rose Establishment made a variety of delicious tea sandwiches and salads; refreshments included Hibiscus Mint iced tea and tea service.

June Barn Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with this adorable bride from Colorado just this past spring. She wanted to bring in rustic elements from her Barn venue in combination with her 'shades of blue' color palette. Rachel was able to tell me a few main specifics about what she liked and didn't like and then gave me a lot of freedom with the design, which was a great way for us to collaborate on this custom piece. Congrats Rachel & Jeremy!

Christmas Greetings

No one is interested in Christmas at this point, I'm sure, but I did mail these on time at least. Printed on the Vandercook, two colors on chipboard. I used a Crepaldi marbled paper behind the image and Brown Bag Kraft envelopes in olive.
