New work: Baby Shower Invites

Another baby shower! This was a fun invite to create since the mom-to-be doesn't know if she's having a baby boy or girl. Green and yellow were the colors chosen by our client, but we wanted to add a unique twist to the pieces, so we used chocolate brown accents and stitching. The mom is a very classy lady and has a great sense of humor, so the damask pattern combined with the "Baby Whitaker" line made this invite perfect for the occasion.

Jingle & Mingle

Thursday, December 3rd, we are having our first ever trunk show at Urban Cottage in the Virginia Highlands. Urban Cottage is lovely store filled with everything we would ever want to put in our houses. From the furniture, to the linens, to the candles and soaps they offer, every time we go in, it's hard not to leave empty handed. Over the past few months we have become good friends with the owner, Jessica, and some of the ladies that work there. We tossed around the idea of selling holiday cards and Jessica was nice enough to host an event at her store. Here are the details:

December 3rd
  • Store wide discounts at Urban Cottage
  • Holy Vino will also have their jelly wine for sampling (yum)
  • Festive drinks ;)
  • Tasty snacks
  • Holiday music
  • Event give-aways
It will be a fun time and a great way to kick off the shopping season. Think about it, no malls, no lines, no fighting for a parking spot... So please come out if you can and support local businesses. If you can't make it, be sure to check out some of our holiday cards that will be posted on Etsy shortly after the event.

Finally! A quick break to blog to everyone about the newest work that is coming out of our studio. Today we are featuring programs for an Indian wedding that is coming up in a few short weeks. These have been quite the labor of love, but we are so pleased with how they turned out. The gold paper is a fun touch that really makes these programs pop. These pictures were taken during the beginning stage of the process. At the time we were cutting, scoring, folding, and gluing beads to 300 programs. More to post with the second half later this week.
