Welcome Burrow and Hive!

I am SO, SO excited to spread the word about "Burrow and Hive," a new textile company founded by my long time friend, Newell, and her sister, Sally. Burrow and Hive is rolling out original designs (think abstract, ikat-esque and seashell prints) on everything from pillows, small bags and placemats to scarves that are as luxurious to touch as they are rich in color.

I can already see these being a huge hit as a bridesmaid or wedding gift! How wonderful would it be to give your lovely bridesmaids a completely original scarf that they can use as a throw with their bridesmaid dresses, or on any other cool evening! And how memorable a gift would an original and beautiful set of placemats be for the newly wedded bride and groom??!!

Their website is still "coming soon," but for now check out and follow their Burrow and Hive blog right here. Also, I believe they will be having a trunk show in Kansas City around Thanksgiving, so make sure to stay tuned!

Did you know we design EVERYTHING??

Did you know that we not only design lovely save the dates and invitations, but coordinating wedding day items as well?? Programs, menus, table numbers, place cards, bag tags, stickers, candy bar signs, signature drink signs, napkins, welcome booklets, you name it! The list goes on and on! I feel that I am often asked this question (do you design coordinating wedding day items?) and the answer is "yes!"

In fact, we LOVE designing wedding day items, because in our opinion it is the smallest details that really pull everything together and make for a truly unforgettable event!

Check out how beautiful the small details make when it all comes together! (ok, we don't design cakes, but we did the logo :) How cool is that? LOVE it!)

Congratulations Raechal and Andrew!

A BIG congratulations to Raechal and Andrew Ferguson, who were married yesterday up on Vail Mt!! Raechal and Andrew were such an amazingly sweet couple and I can't wait to see all the gorgeous pictures from their big day (coordinated by the ever so talented Jen of I Do Wedding Services in Vail). 

Raechal and Andrew wanted a modern wedding with a Colorado twist. Using their white, blue and orange color story, we incorporated in beautifully letterpressed aspen leaf design and wrapped it with a letterpressed birch (actual birch wood!) belly band.

What a fun way to celebrate the 4th of July weekend! Congrats again Raechal and Andrew, I wish you both a wonderful and happy future together :)

Real Wedding - Natalie and Bret

It isn't often that I get to see how my bride and groom's big days turn out once everything comes together. Typically, I see the bits and pieces of stationery items that are ordered and designed and then the rest is left to my imagination :) But... the other week one of my lovely brides, Natalie, emailed me with some photos from her wedding and it made me smile from ear to ear! (Thanks Natalie for sharing!)

I just ADORE so many things about how Natalie's wedding came together and how she incorporated into her every detail pieces from her wedding stationery (the Vail Collection). Everything from the way the place cards were displayed to the gorgeous wedding cake adorned with the Vail Collection design made from icing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!

Thanks again Natalie and a huge congratulations to you and Bret!

Wooden Coaster Guest Book

I came across this really cute idea on "A Turtle's Life for Me" where they made wooden coasters out of the cross sections of a small tree trunks. I loved this idea so much and instantly thought of all my Colorado and mountain wedding brides who are looking for fun new ideas to use for their guest books!

How fun would it be to take this same idea, and lay a dozen of these little "coasters" out for people to sign at your wedding, in lieu of a traditional guest book? Then, after the wedding hit them with a coat of wood schlack to seal in the beautiful messages and there you have it! A coaster set filled with the names and messages from all of your nearest and dearest displayed out as a wonderful reminder every time you use them!

Romantic and Vintage Guest Book Idea

I cannot even remember where I came across this picture, but don't you love this idea??!! I love the romantic simplicity of this "window guest book." If I were to go back in time, I would have most certainly done this at our wedding and I would hang it somewhere special, where I could look at it everyday...  Love!

What's a girl (or guy) to wear??

These days the protocol for wedding attire is much more of a grey area than it used to be. From formal mountain weddings to casual beach weddings to black tie affairs, who's to know how to dress and more importantly how to let you guests know what to wear??!!

I come across this question all of the time when designing invitations, and I found this bit of information that I found helpful in defining the appropriate attire:

  • Black tie or black tie optional: this is a cue to your guests that the men should be in a tuxedo or dark suite, and the ladies should wear evening gown or formal dress.
  • Semi Formal: this indicates that the men should be in a suit or jacket and the ladies should be in an elegant dress or dressy suit.
  • Cocktail Attire: indicates that the men should wear a dark suit and the ladies a pretty cocktail dress.
  • Casual Attire: indicates that the men should wear nice pants and a collared shirt and the ladies may wear a simple dress or nice pants. 
And if this does not get the attire across, then I also suggest a wedding website that describes the attire in greater detail. And lastly, good old word of mouth!
