Happy and merry

Christmas countdown

Christmas is quickly approaching and we couldn't be more excited. A few of our favourite things during the holidays...take a spin around an ice skating rink, consume copious amounts of Christmas cookies, watch Elf as many times as possible, making our lists and checking them twice and of course writing lovely messages inside Christmas cards. However you spend your holidays, enjoy!

New home

A single-sided announcement featured a Scandinavian floral design as a nod to the sender's heritage. Featuring just a single colour, this letterpressed design was a lovely way to share the details of her new place to call home.

A modern invite

With the wedding taking place in a rural location, the couple were eager to incorporate modern touches to their wedding day. The invitation suite announced this aesthetic and featured a graphic leaf pattern as a gentle nod to the location and decor and the combination of fonts gave an overall contemporary feel. The suite was letterpressed and featured a custom logo that used throughout the wedding decor.

Giving Thanks

Currently we are giving thanks for inspiring afternoons, coffee, anything salted caramel flavoured, weekends spent wandering, big belly laughs, a nice glass of wine at the end of the day, picking up conversations with old friends right where they left off, sunglasses on any day, rainy day snuggles and, most importantly, wonderful friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving!

Eye candy

We were always told not to judge a book by it's cover, but how can you not when the cover design is so adorable? Lovely paper stock, punchy, bright colours and bold patterns adorn these lovely notebooks gifted to us by a friend's recent trip to Italy. The yellow and white stripes are right up our street and are the perfect way to house ideas and doodles.

In Bloom

With London's recent gray days filling up our summer, the first glimpse of sun this past weekend had us racing out for some fresh air minus the umbrella. Petersham Nurseries was the perfect way to spend an afternoon, grazing on delicious cakes while wandering through lovely plants, pottery and other items suddenly on our wishlist for the home. A perfect blend of colours and textures transported us to a chic and inspiring location where one wished they could stay for awhile. This visit was the perfect dose of vibrant colour to carry us through to the next sunny spell...fingers crossed!

Around the world

With backgrounds that span many locations, this couple wanted to highlight areas around the world that held a special place in their hearts. Each location held a lovely story and was featured through the creation of a bespoke map. This folded invitation featured a navy script on the front and the custom map on the back to share their own personal story with their guests.

A pretty parcel

This invitation suite was full of the couples’ personalities, incorporated a bit texture and featured a lovely colour palette of muted tones that complimented each other so nicely. Inspired by the couples’ nicknames for each other, a logo treatment of a bunny and bear was featured throughout the invitation suite in various forms. Their initials were used throughout the suite and sat alongside a selection of fonts that felt a bit modern, with a touch of formality and loads of personal touches. The entire wedding invitation suite, which included a double sided invitation, an RSVP postcard, a double-sided pre-wedding party and an info card, was wrapped in twine and finished with a tag featuring their initials.
