Moodboard Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  We’ve just packed and wrapped some stunning postcard invitations for a South African couple living in London, getting married in KZN. So it seemed fitting that today’s moodboard be inspired by them.  Hope you enjoy this collection of ideas for a travel-themed wedding, lots of clever little details.  Bon voyage!

Fave Friday

We love trawling the web for fresh ideas and thought we’d start to share with you the fab sites we like to visit.  Recently we’ve found 2 new blogs that are packed full of inspiration if you’re planning a wedding, or if like us, you just like looking at pretty stuff!  They are both local sites too, which makes them even better.  Wedding Friends and South Bound Bride focus on connecting brides-to-be with the best suppliers in the industry, and their sites are full of beautiful images to get your creative juices flowing.  We’ll definitely be visiting them regularly, hope you enjoy exploring them too!

Wine Glass People

Earlier (make that much earlier) this year, we celebrated a milestone birthday of the matriarch of our family, our Gaga who turned 80!  She is so special to us, and her birthday tea was full of love, laughter and lots of pink!

We thought we’d share these “wine glass people” that we made as a place name for each person.  We were inspired by these tea bag Royals made as souvenirs for the Royal wedding.  They’re a fun and personal way to mark each person’s place. Really cute, don’t you think?

And here we are!

Bake + Make Invitations

You’re invited to a Bake and Make party!  We delivered a stack of these cute personalised invites yesterday.  What a lovely theme to work with, we so enjoyed whipping these up.  We love the idea of a baking and craft party for young girls and we chose cupcake colours with a fresh and funky pattern to set the tone. The birthday girl was so happy with these, and that’s all we need to make us smile!

Oh Boy!

We were so excited when a friend of this mom-to-be asked us to design some goodies for a special celebration for her little man who is on his way soon!  We loved the colors she chose, clean white with touches of blue and brown.  There were lots of fun elements to design, like the baby bingo cards and cupcake wrappers.  The advice for mom cards are such a personal touch, and we’re sure they will be very useful and meaningful to her in the months and years to come.  Here are a few photos of the happy celebration, and a few of the elements from the kit.  You can purchase the entire printable kit on our Etsy store or pop us an email to order the ready-made kit.  We love to custom design, so pop us a message if we can help with something unique just for you!

Moodboard Monday

Hola amigos!  Today we’re sharing some ideas for a feisty Mexican-inspired fiesta, which we are helping a dear friend to plan.  She is celebrating a big birthday at a great beach-side venue and we can’t wait to get going on the stationery and decor. It’s going to be bright, bold and so much fun…Dee, this one’s for you!
