Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
Fruit and veggies have long been a staple in wedding decor. From submerged fruit centerpieces to pomegranate place cards, we have seen it all. A new trend is emerging though, where fruit details are seen in fashion and stationery and not as diminutive accents but as powerful punches of color and shape.
Take this stunning cake by Flour Girls and Dough Boys. The lovely shape of pears is used to balance the angular cake layers. Kenneth Jay Lane’s apple pendant would be a perfect layering piece for the daring bride looking to add a touch of playfulness to her wedding day jewelry choices. Judith Leiber’s pear and apple clutches would add that wow touch to a simple attendant gown.
Vintage fabrics can be found just about anywhere. A quick trip to your local antique shop should uncover fabrics perfect for a photo booth backdrop or buffet table covering.
Here is a little sneak peek of some images from my photo shoot a few weeks ago. I am really not supposed to share too much, but I just couldn’t resist giving you a look at the raspberry invites and fresh berry styling used throughout the shoot.
So get creative and be brave. Fruit details are not for the faint but if used with confidence can pack quite a design punch!
