Stationery | Vance Suite

I realize there still is snow on the ground, but in the world of design we stay ahead by a season – if not two!  Today’s post features an invitation suite for a spring wedding.  A night-before dessert reception, a traditional ceremony in a church, followed by a garden party.  Three pieces of varying heights stack inside a neat little pocket folder, their tops all coordinated and contrasting.  These then slip into an exterior envelope – all in tints of peapod green.  Perfect for May, wouldn’t you say?  The month of “Yes, you May.” Be sure to catch the Inspiration Board behind this invite for a whimsical garden fête.

Events | Nashville Bridal Brunch

{WINNERS} I am happy to announce the winners of the Design in August Studio Giveaway!!  The lucky brides-to-be are Miss Megan Deising (winner of the custom return address rubber stamp) and Miss Leah Caudle (winner of the custom thank you note set).  Congrats, ladies!!  I am excited to design these items for you and look forward to posting them here on the blog.

I was delighted to show my stationery work at HER Nashville’s Bridal Brunch this past Sunday.  We had an excellent turnout at Vanderbilt’s Commodore Ballroom and I am pleased as punch – or, should I say, mimosas!  It was such fun meeting with lovely brides-to-be (and their attentive grooms-to-be) as we chatted stationery needs and paper goods in a lively, brunch atmosphere.  I also had fun seeing which pieces caught the most attention – hello, lined envelopes & save the date postcards!  A highlight for attendees was the fashion show, featuring gown trends for Spring 2011 (ruffles! ruffles! ruffles!).  And a highlight for Design in August was not one, but TWO Studio Giveaways!  Brides entered to win either a set of custom thank you notes OR a custom return address rubber stamp.  I will be announcing the two lovely winners tomorrow.  Thanks, HER Nashville for hosting a can’t-miss brunch.  Cheers!

Stay tuned on Wednesday when I will announce the two winners of my Studio Giveaway!  Could it be you?!

Little Black Dress a Smashing Success!

Ladies and Gents, the Little Black Dress Revue was a delightful evening!  Masterfully pulled together by 17 of Nashville’s finest vendors and spearheaded by the talented Sarah Willard, this was one swanky trade show.  The venue, the lights and draping, the catering, the bar tending, the live music, the flipbook photobooth (can’t wait to show you this one tomorrow!) – it all came together seamlessly and I am so pleased with Design in August’s showing.  I had the opportunity to chat with lovely brides, as well as network with fellow vendors.  And one lovely bride won a $5,000 Grand Prize!  Stellar.  I wish all trade shows would grow up to be like this one when they get older!  Detail photos of my printed designs coming later today, but for now enjoy these uber fabulous pre-event shots courtesy of sharp-shooter Gregory Byerline.

Oh! Sneaky peek at my Larrabee Suite. Coming soon!

Isn’t the Noah Liff fabulous?!  Mr. G’s reaction: “We need to throw our
10th anniversary party there!” And 20th… and 30th…

Catering cards on the buffet table.

“Soon to be Mrs.”

His & Hers drinks.  These stir sticks were an absolute delight for party-goers (and vendors!).

Yours truly with the lovely Sarah.  Thank you again for a great evening, girl!
