the perfect program for your winter wedding!

A week and a half later, I'm finally catching up from taking most of Thanksgiving week off to hang out with my family.  I finished up the last of an order of 160 of these earlier today:


I created the snowflake motif programs to coordinate with a client's variation on this wedding invitation ensemble for her December 11th wedding.  Initially we were going to do a simple, one page program but when I struggled to fit all of her information on one page, I came up with this two-page booklet style program instead.


You can see digital versions of the coordinating escort cards and table numbers in the Etsy listing.  As with all of my products, these wedding stationery components are fully customizable and can be modified to work with any of my invitation designs.

Working on this winter wonderland themed wedding almost made me miss the snow of my former Boston stomping grounds. Almost.  Congratulations, Ashley!

hot pink hydrangeas

It's been too long! In October, I spent a little more time than usual in my other "shop", participating in my first two craft fairs. November saw a return to focusing on custom wedding and event stationery and my best month yet on Etsy! Adding a holiday design has helped keep me busy during this still somewhat slow time for wedding invitations (more on holiday designs in my next post). That I hope will change after the New Year!


In the meantime, let me begin the process of updating this blog with a little show & tell of a recent wedding order that began with save-the-dates and ended with day-of paper products.


This client contacted me shortly after getting engaged. She was interested in the hydrangea motif design in my shop but wanted to apply her bold and super-fun-to-work-with wedding palette of fuchsia, chocolate brown, and gold.


I loved working with her colors (you might have already noticed hot pink is one of my favorite colors) and figuring out how to get just the right amount of shimmer into her overall wedding stationery design. The design of the invitation overall stayed fairly true to the sample listing but wow, what a difference those changes in color made, huh?


Congratulations Melissa & Michael!
