‘Tis the season! Not only is it engagement season, but holiday parties will soon be in full swing, and of course, the gift giving! So we thought it was perfect when RedEnvelope reached out to us to share our wedding gift picks as part of the promotion for the “Love Above All” Empire State Building Contest- three lucky couples will win a wedding at the iconic Empire State Building, complete with design by RedEnvelope and ProFlowers. Can you imagine?! How amazing to tie the knot in the New York City skyline. Oh, and it’ll be this Valentine’s Day. Wow. The deadline is December 5, so there are still a few days to get your entry in!
For our gift inspiration board, we were really drawn to all of the gorgeous entertaining essentials RedEnvelope offers- from a customized cutting board (obsessed with this) to personalized kitchen towels. There’s something about the kitchen that just FEELS like home- no wonder stocking a newlywed kitchen for cooking and entertaining is so fun!
Beer Tasting Set – Craft Cocktails – Kitchen Towels – Wine Bucket – Cutting Board – Serving Dome
Any of these would make an awesome gift for a recently engaged or newly married couple- or hey, they’d be a great addition to any kitchen! We think they’d be perfect for hosting a drink tasting party this season, and with that in mind, we’ve put together a free printable: Drink Tasting Cards!
Just print these out, mount onto the left side of an 8.5 x 11 kraft cardstock sheet using double sided tape, and you’ve got the perfect drink mats for a tasting (wine, beer, craft cocktails- anything in a glass!). Have fun!
The really amazing thing about styled shoots for us, is that we basically send off our papergoods (unless we’re going on site for set up, which we’ve done a few times) and then get to see it all come together when the photos come in. So today, when this full feature went up on Green Wedding Shoes, we were completely blown away by the gorgeousness that Jessica Adams Design put together- we just can’t say enough about it. The escort display is AMAZING and that stunning bouquet (by Stacy Bowen Flowers) against the fall leaves is just… wow. Thanks Love By Serena for capturing it so beautifully, and to the rest of the vendor team for making it happen.
In slightly related news, we recently updated our press page and it’s making us really really happy- we are so grateful to all of these awesome blogs and publications for having us. The opportunity to have our work featured and to be part of such lovely vendor teams (whether for a wedding or for a styled shoot) is just one of the things that we’re really thankful for this season.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Eat too much and give lots of love.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we’d like to introduce our Pink Collection- notecards and gifts that will benefit The Breast Center at Anne Arundel Medical Center. 100% of profits will be donated right to this amazing center that helps so many women.
As some of you may know, we’ve been personally touched by this cause as our Elizabeth was diagnosed in June. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy, which will be followed by radiation. We have been extremely blessed to have awesome support as we’ve figured out new ways to manage our workday, grow our business, and continue to work with our wonderful clients. I know Elizabeth wouldn’t say this herself, so I’ll say it for her: she has been handling this journey with such faith and grace, and I am constantly amazed by her!
We’re so happy that we can put our “pretty little papergoods” to work for a cause- please know that your purchase, whether it’s a holiday gift or a gift for yourself, is making a difference. Thank you for your support!
Hope your Valentine’s day is filled with love… and some chocolate :) Have a great day!
Today’s Font Friday brought to you by the letter “H”…
Oh, and the letter “S” too because they’re both on sale- the charming Homsley and Hollis are under $25 each for a limited time. We’re in love with that unique “O” from Homsley, and well, Hollis is about the cutest thing we’ve ever seen with those botanical details woven right into the letterforms!
