I was so impressed with Domestic Constructions window design for the shop! They made paper flower garlands and mixed in some scraps of fabric in shades of pink…such a simple concept but so effective! Its a nice take on all those garlands I’ve been seeing lately.
Bryn from Paperfinger was an absolute sweetheart! When I first met her on Saturday, she looked so familiar I had to ask where I knew her…apparently we both went to Skidmore College! Small world! She’s quite talented with her calligraphy, and is able to do lots of different types…but my favorite is where she fills in the letters.

Mary sent me her lovely save the date and I just had to share…heres what she had to say…
I just wanted to share our Save the Date with you. We loved it and have received a lot of positive feedback from our friends and family. It was folded into thirds and the addresses were printed directed on the back. It opens up to look like a concert poster, which was the look we were going for. I wanted to send it in case you do a showcase again of all different STD’s. I LOVED looking at all the different ideas and drew inspiration from what I found on your site.Our long time graphic-designer friend, Jillian Coron, designed and printed them for us for FREE! She also is the designer for an amazing line of tee-shirts that “promote
a message of love and unity rooted from the female experience”. They make amazing and affordable bridesmaids gifts! http://shopdelicioustees.com/
Two weekends ago I headed out to the Hamptons for my dear friend Christina’s bridal shower…its always nice to catch up with old friends isn’t it? Anyway, she’s a very eco-conscious gal, and on the invite, it was requested that we not bring wrapped gifts. (We didn’t have to bring gifts at all, but I like spoiling her) Since we couldn’t use giftwrap, and I just couldn’t bring myself to bring just the box, I had to come up with a way to jazz it up a bit, so I bought a couple of paint pens from the art store and went to town on the box! If I had more time, I probably would have colored in all the pattern to completely cover all the text, but I kinda like it like this too. I threw on a big green bow, and it was all set! Do you have any interesting ways of dressing up a gift without using giftwrap?

Cara sent me her VERY cool save the dates over the weekend to share with you guys! Here’s what she had to say.
I was really inspired by a bunch of the real save-the-dates that you posted a few months ago. I hadn’t really thought much about mine before that but I realized that we could do something really fun with it and put a bit of our personalities into it, so I wanted to share what we came up with.
The inspiration for our card came from a McKinley-Roosevelt campaign poster from 1899 that we got from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the design work was done by my friend and talented Brooklyn-based graphic designer, Kelli Anderson (www.kellianderson.com).
