Hello everyone! I am sorry I have been away for so long. The past few months have been a whirlwind! In August, my husband and I found a house that we couldn’t pass up, SO we decided to move. I spent weeks and weeks getting the house ready to sell and just the other day, we finally moved into our new home. I can’t wait to share pictures. And rest assure that I will have tons of room makeovers and DIY projects to share with you as well!
Now onto a new design that is very close to my heart! This invitation was created for a charity ball event benefiting The Susan G. Komen Foundation. It is a true honor to help sponsor the event and donate my design services for such an amazing cause.
The “Unmask the Cure” event is taking place Friday, November the 4th in Mckinney, Texas and I am really excited to attend. If you’re interested in going or would simply like to make a donation, you can do so by clicking here!
This new invitation is quite special…being that it was designed for my amazing grandparents in celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary. SIXTY YEARS! The invitation ensemble was elegant, clean and classy with a black and metallic silver color palette. Perfect for the huge party that was filled with family and friends a few weeks ago in Fort Worth.
My grandparents are my heart. My soul. And I am so inspired by their amazing marriage. Thank you and congratulations G&G!
Brand new baby shower invitation, designed with sweet Southern love. I am totally smitten by this design as the grey and yellow color palette, fonts and graphics are gorgeous mix of modern, rustic and vintage styles. It just feels warm and comfy. I totally envision mason jars, picnic tables and gingham patterned linens paired with the food tent signs created to match the invite. Thank you Miranda for the opportunity to design such adorable pieces for the event and CONGRATS to Mommy to-be Leslie!
Simply. Breathtaking. That about sums up this Washington, DC wedding featured on Style Me Pretty today. I had the joy of working with beautiful bride Julie on all of her wedding paper goods, including their profile silhouette save the date’s, wedding invitations, ceremony programs, menus, table cards, weekend event cards, printed canvas guest bags and more! All of the details came together so perfectly and Shelby Leigh Photography captured it all.

What a beautiful couple, on the inside and out. The front of this save the date invitation features one of the couples super dreamy engagement photos taken by Two Pair Photography. And yes, those really are falling wisteria flowers you see in the background of the photo!
For the back of the save the date, we drew inspiration from the historic, wrought iron detailing at their reception site, The Fort Worth Club and the super elegant, feminine style of the bride. A coordinating accommodations card is also part of this pretty package. Kinda makes me wish I could do my own save the dates all over again…
This new shower invitation was created for a fabulous bride getting married this fall in Guatemala! We really wanted to set the stage for their destination wedding through this invitation. Jennifer was inspired by the intricate patterns and bright, bold colors used in Guatemalan fabrics and had the genius idea of using tying this into the design. The outcome is fun, festive and bound to get guests excited about the shower, where they will even be featuring authentic Guatemalan cuisine!
I love when a client comes to me with a fabulous vision yet gives me free reign to “do my thing.” This is exactly the approach bride Tara took with her invitation suite. The inspiration: 1940′s, navy and gold and pinstripes. The overall look turned out to be a perfect mix of traditional, vintage elegance. For extra nostalgia, I incorporated the vintage airmail graphics and postage stamp monogram. I simply adore their custom illustrated map too, which includes the high school where the couple first met. Thank you so much Tara and Zac for the opportunity to design such a fun invitation!
This kitchen shower ensemble has to be one of my most favorite designs yet! Hostess Julie started by giving me the brides color palette, which included about 6-7 very bright and bold colors. I proceeded to probe for more details (as I sometimes do…) and was informed that the bride is the “artsy-whimsy” type. My kinda gal! I knew exactly what do.
The invitation was mailed to guests with a recipe card for them to write down their favorite dish and bring to the shower for the bride. The day of paper goods included a custom coffee menu, “Recipe for a Good Marriage” advice cards and tags for the cookie mix filled mason jar favors. So precious. Thank you Julie and congrats to the bride!
Functional and oh so fun. Give your guests the gift of a custom illustrated map! The perfect addition to your invitation suite, hotel guest bags or event information packet.
Please email for quotes and additional details.
I love a great theme and this one says it all! I drew my inspiration from vintage playing cards and used a combo of Vegas and Broadway style fonts to give the invitation a true “night out on the town” feeling. Just like a real playing card, each invitation and “Sweet Nothings” card is double sided and has rounded corners. This invitation is absolutely one of my most favorite projects to date. Thank you hostess Meghan and congrats to the lucky bride!
Oh, my. I am so over-the-top giddy to share this inspiration shoot that was featured on The Wedding Chicks blog today! Every detail is so romantically swoon worthy and I am honored to have provided the paper goods for the event, shot by Christa Elyce Photography.

When Emily of A Well Dressed Home asked me to design the baby shower invitations for her friend Tessa, also an interior designer, I was super excited….and knew it had to be extra special!
Emily provided me with one of her amazing online design boards of the nursery (how bout’ that for inspiration?!) and I created the invitation to match. I took full advantage of the awesome grey and yellow color scheme and then also designed a graphic pattern to match her fabric for the wrap around address labels. So fun, fresh and modern. What a lucky lil guy to have such an incredible nursery!
Thank you so much Emily and Tessa for the opportunity and incredible inspiration!
Working with Lisa on all of her wedding paper goods was such a delight. We stayed true to her classic and elegant style throughout …with one exception: the rehearsal dinner invitation, where I was given free reign to create something fun and a little untraditional for the event. With the American Airlines Center, the Dallas Mavericks and sports lovers Lisa and Joe in mind, I was able to create something fun, fresh and modern for the event. LOVE it and thank you Lisa! You’re the best!
Brand new, made to order invitation for a chic mommy who loves interior design, monograms, collecting antiques and most of all, her new baby girl.
I couldn’t help but pair the bright and bold invite with a matching metallic envelope….so glam and oh so classically girly. Thank you to Kerianne, the hostess with the mostess, and congratulations Martha!
Brand new baby shower design for expecting Mommy Ashlee and hostess with the mostess Amber. This invitation and thank you card pairing is sweet, sophisticated and simply adorable! Congratulations to Ashlee and thank you Amber- it was such a pleasure working with you again!
