Cute Table Number Idea

As I was looking thru the local Etsy shops here in good old Kansas I came across the cutest jute bags from SouthHouseBoutique's shop.  How cute would these be as table numbers for a garden, outdoor or barn wedding!! I am already married, but am trying to think of a reason to buy these :)

Nikki and Steve's Wedding!

A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of working with Nikki Gutshall, CEO and Co-founder of and on her gorgeous wedding! Talk about complete wedding envy... Nikki had it all covered all the way down to the smallest details and I think that the pictures speak for themselves when I say that this wedding was simply stunning!

I (Lilah Paper) had the fun task of working on Nikki's custom programs and custom drink wrapped water bottles and juice cans, using their engagement pictures, shot by Clayton Austin. They turned out so fantastic and are such a fun way to customize your wedding. Check them out, cool, huh?! :) Oh, and aren't the photos by EP Love and Fraley Co. fantastic??!! I LOVE everything about this wedding, congratulations Nikki and Steve!!

(Don't you just love the banner that Anna made??!!) Check out some of the pics below:

Table Number Ideas

All too often, table numbers seem to be forgotten and put together at the last minute. BUT... table numbers can be so much more than a printed piece of cardstock! Whenever, I come across adorable ideas that can be incorporated into a tablescape, I just simply must share! Check out some of my favorites, found over on Martha Stewart Weddings (of course!).
OR... of course you could follow the Lilah Paper DIY project featured a couple of months ago and utilize your napkin at a table number AND a menu!

I heart laser-cutting!

Ok, so I am SO excited about this next invitation and I just got back pictures (they are shipping the pieces to me, so this is all I have right now) of how the laser-cut gate turned out! This invitation is such an amazing example of how laser-cutting can really add dimension to an invitation and bring about true meaning to the "big reveal" that gets everyone excited about your wedding!!

I will post pictures once this baby is complete, but for now here is just a teaser. This invitation is going to have coppery, laser-cut, wrought-iron gates with a house (printed on ecru vellum) peeping thru the gate work, as if you are looking thru the actual estate and coming up to the mansion itself! SO cool! Then behind the vellum is the actual invitation using a geometric, honeycomb pattern that can be found on the windows of the home itself.

Stay tuned...

Lilah Paper on Style Me Pretty!

If you haven't already seen all the beautiful details that were put together for our Inspiration to Reality photo shoot, head on over to Style Me Pretty now :) I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with so many TALENTED vendors!!

Menus, Napkins and Table Numbers Oh My!

Menus, table numbers and napkins, all wrapped up in one adorable package!
Learn how to make them yourself using the simple DIY steps below:


1. An image in a digital format scanned or created with a design program.
2. Set of cotton Dinner Napkins (we found ours at Bed, Bath and Beyond).
3. Iron-on transfer paper(can be found at Michaels or Hobby Lobby).
4. A color inkjet printer.
5. Hand iron.
6. A flat, hard, smooth, non-porous ironing surface.
7. A clean soft cloth.


1. Create your design using a scanned image or on your computer.

2. When you are ready to print your image, follow these steps:

Make sure that you have selected 'Mirror', 'Flip', 'Reverse' or a similar setting in your application, if it is required, so that the image will be printed backwards.

Test by printing your image on a sheet of plain paper. Once you are satisfied with how your image looks, insert a single sheet of iron on transfer paper into your printer and adjust the settings as follows.

In your printer driver, select the highest dpi setting and the correct paper setting for your type of printer: Look for a T-shirt transfer setting.

Set the paper thickness lever on your printer for standard paper.
Print your iron on transfer image. 

3. Trim the iron transfer image into two sections, as each section will be ironed separately.

4. Iron on the Transfer

Preheat the iron on its highest temperature setting and make sure that you DO NOT use steam. DO NOT use an ironing board, bare wood, glass, or metal surface for ironing. We used a counter top surface, proteted by a smooth cotton hand towel.

Place the image to be transferred face down on the napkin in the desired position. And press firmly, ironing over the entire surface for 30-45 seconds.

5. Fold your napkin

Happy Mother's Day!

Today I want to wish all the mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day! As a new mother myself, I have gained such a different perspective on motherhood and all of its beautiful sacrifices! You all of a sudden realize that the long nights and the exhausting/demanding schedule that is non-stop, around the clock are worth every second of sleep lost! Because, when your little one locks those sweet eyes with yours, coos and gives you a big, toothless smile that melts your heart everything just falls into place!

However, I have only just brushed the surface of the wonderful adventure called motherhood... still to come are the early-age milestones and then the dreaded teenage years! So, with this newly gained perspective I wanted to show my mother my great appreciation for all that she has done with a Mother's Day brunch. Now I have to say, because this was my first Mother's Day, my incredible and loving husband took my grocery list and brunch menu ideas, and spent the entire morning cooking up the most incredible food and then cleaning the entire celebration once everyone had parted, while I slept in, mingled and enjoyed a much needed mimosa. He is truly a wonderful man! Anyway, I thought I would share some of the pictures, that include some easy, do-it-yourself ideas. Afterall, it is all about the details! I hope that you enjoy and to all the mothers out there... this is your day!

Same beautiful paper goods with a new website to match!

If you just recently visited the Lilah Paper website (I talking like 5 minutes ago), you might have noticed some big changes! Yes, it's true... our website got a bit of a face lift. So, pop on over when you have a moment, because there are some pretty cool features, including: running slideshows (which can be stopped by clicking on the picture), larger photos, a more comprehensive list of fonts, motifs, colors, etc., and beautiful product shots by the amazing Paula Luna of Luna Photo! Now there are still a couple of bells and whistles to be added, but in the meantime, I hope that you like the new site!

And don't forget to follow our tweets (although seldom they may be) and become a fan on Facebook. The links are at the bottom!

Adrienne Maples Photography and our sweet little Ellie

Ok, so I have to diverge from weddings and stationery for a bit, as I am totally consumed by the new little addition to our family! Our sweet little daughter, Ellie Sophia, was born February 18th and she is just perfect in every single way!! So, this post is all about babies and the our amazing photographer Adrienne Maples, who shot her newborn photos on Monday! I got the chance to grab a sneak peak of a few of them (shown above) posted on her facebook page.

I am so amazed by Adrienne's ability to capture our love and our little girl in a way that I could never imagine! Check out her incredible pictures at her website here.

Her wedding shots are equally as amazing!! (Ok... so there was a little wedding talk... but seriously, she is SO talented!)
