Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I am a big fan of ceremony programs! I can’t think of a better way to include your guests and help them connect in a personal way to the ceremony. Often brides create very simple programs or exclude them totally for fear they will end up in the trash. I completely understand this fear but know of some great ways to ensure your guests will think twice before tossing their program after the ceremony. I am often asked to list some favorite details to include in a program so I thought I would share this list with you today! Readings […]

To continue from last week I am excited to show you more from my holiday decorating craziness as I like to call it! Pictured below is my entry where green and silver tones abound.

Today my silvery jingle bells remind me of this much cherished childhood memory. I found these fun star wreaths at Pottery Barn years ago and have them hung from a curtain rod affixed […]

The very talented photographers, Christine Tremoulet and Anne Ruthmann among many other bloggers are participating in Cans for Comments. I follow the blogs of these ladies and was so inspired by the Cans project I decided to give it a try myself. So here is how it works, for every comment I receive on this blog (and not only comments to this post, so look around) through Friday December 19th at Midnight EST, I will donate one canned good to the Back Mountain Food Bank which serves my community. So go ahead, make my day!!!

I loved working with Kelley and Ben, in fact this was one of my favorite weddings this year.

Kelley’s opted for Save the Date Booklets that gave her guests detailed inforegarding the event filled weekend celebration. Ohh, the cupcakes, the flowers! I just adore the cupcake tower with mini […]

I discovered this bouquet, on the Bridal Inquirer Blog this week. The bouquet’s beauty relies on crisp shades of green and an uncommon collection of flora. I just love the use of clover (I believe), so unexpected! Immediately drawn to the monochromatic loveliness, I knew I had to create an invitation to compliment. I chose two shades of green, one very soft with silvery undertones, the other very fresh and saturated. The lacy pattern was pressed in a light silvery sage with hand-painted accents on blooms throughout. This bouquet could easily inspire an entire event with its organic textures, elegant […]
