So over the weekend, a girlfriend and I had a small engagement brunch for our dear friend and fiance.   If you read my last post about the super cute surprise Prosecco note you'll know who I'm talking about.

The inspiration of the brunch was all about "time," and I hope you will notice what a blast I had  brainstorming and decorating this event.

The design of the invitation is what themed the rest of the decor for the brunch.

The buffet table was adorned with clocks, an hour glass, yarn wrapped bottles, food cards, and cute little banners.

In the center of the buffet table I took a vintage suitcase and hung a mini banner that said "time to eat."

The "love" banner was made from coffee stained paper doilies that I stained by hand and adhered the letters on top.

The food labels were inspired by the bride and groom's love of reading.

The vases were bottles that were hand wrapped with yarn.

The sangria table had a little section that had an homage to the Texas Groom by placing the silverware in a glass boot.

All of this the artwork used at the party will be on for purchase of diy printables so be on the lookout!

Two weeks ago a friend of mine cleverly conspired with my brother-in-law to sneak into the house while I was away running errands.  I soon found this ridiculously cute note attached to a bottle of Prosecco in my refrigerator asking me to be a bridesmaid.

Upon my ultimate surprise I felt this note was just too cute not to share.  The tag, which reads, "As I prepare for the day that I am to be a bride it would mean the world to have you sipping by my side," is also the nautical map of the area in which she will be wedding her best friend.

This is too cute NOT to accept and very tasty as well ;)  So of course I accepted with honor!

I had the privilege of doing a couple's shower invite.  My first ever!!!  I was very excited to incorporate both bride and groom for the shower invite and therefore used the colors from their wedding, while also maintaing a contemporary modern feel suitable for both parties.  Hope you all like it!!

Over the past month I've been working on an invitation for one of my best friends and I am now very excited to finally be posting it.  Throughout the month we endured many trials and tribulations to incorporate all of her requests....damask, contemporary, traditional and stripes.  Once the design process was started I was so invested in the concept that I don't actually think I knew how it would turn out but once finished I couldn't be happier.

Since it is a destination wedding, we included with the invitation an accommodations card and a directions card which was housed in a pocket on the reverse side of the mounted invite all bound together with a piece of twine.

Wedding day stationery coming soon....
