old world travel wedding inspiration shoot

We wanted to share a few of our favorite photos (by the amazingly talented Sarah Goodwin) from the Old World Travel shoot we worked on recently- we just love doing shoots like this! Haley (who did the coordination and the lovely, lovely florals) and Sarah got in touch with us awhile ago about doing the papergoods, and we were so excited to sign on when they told us about the theme. We had so much fun putting together the paper for this shoot- an invitation folder made out of a printed map with a compass charm closure, accordion fold menus with a wax seal detail, baggage tag escort cards- all with the vintage travel feel.

We’re grateful to share a couple of new press credits as well- the shoot was featured on Burnett’s Boards and 100 Layer Cake. Yay!

free printable :: produce buying guide

We’ve been paying a lot more attention to organic food since this kiddo started solids (obligatory picture of said kiddo, who happens to be enjoying watermelon for the first time- I was SHOCKED by how much of it he ate!):

Since he can put away food like a grown up- no joke- it’s hard to find a balance between giving him the best food we can and keeping our grocery bills reasonable. So I was really excited when this year’s “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides and Produce” list from Environmental Work Group came out- it tells you what’s really important to buy organic, and what’s probably ok to buy conventional. It’s nice to know what to NOT to worry about! We actually went over this list and made our own rulings for a few more fruits and veggies- for example, bananas are pretty clean, but Havi eats one just about every day, so we’re going to try to stick with organic on those.

You’ve probably heard of the “Dirty Dozen” (the 12 foods that test highest for pesticides and that you should buy organic if possible)- that term comes from this list. There’s also a list of the “Clean Fifteen” that tested lowest and are usually ok to buy conventional. I was really surprised to see that hot peppers/chilies were “Dirty Dozen Plus,” meaning that they didn’t meet all of the criteria but tested so high that it’s best to buy organic if you eat them often. All the more reason to wish that our little garden blooms soon!

Since nothing much escapes the designer treatment around here, especially if it’s going up on the fridge, the list had to get prettied up with a couple of our favorite typefaces (affiliate links, which means we receive a commission if you make a purchase using our link). I shared this on Instagram yesterday and- with a nudge from Jessica and Cris- wanted to share the free printable today to make grocery trips a bit easier!

Do you have any tips for eating clean/organic and keeping your grocery budget in check?

our red envelope gift picks

‘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!
