Bauble place names

We've just finished these tiny weenie place names for a wedding this December. 

Measuring only 40mm x 25mm, they are smaller than our normal place names and are so cute .  Our customer asked if we could design them to match her Kidman handmade wedding invitations and to fit perfectly into baubles she has bought for her wedding tables.  

They'll look something like this when fully assembled...

Don't you agree, they are perfect for a Winter Christmas wedding?

Teal coloured wedding stationery

We've just produced a sample pack using the Munroe collection in Teal and thought they deserved a mention. 

These are the results...

above: Munroe luxury wallet in teal

above: Munroe day or evening invite in teal

above: Munroe save the date in teal

They make a very strong statement and excellent for a beach or summer wedding.  

All our handmade wedding invitations coordinate with our table plans, table names/numbers, menus, order of service and place names.  We even have printed napkin holders with the Bride and Grooms names printed as well.

August Restaurant - wedding venue

What about this interesting restaurant in Greenwich Village, New York for a wedding venue with a difference....

August restaurant provides the ideal setting for a superb intimate wedding. They can accommodate up to 50 guests in the garden patio. 

Much of it's charm, described as 'urban rusticity', is due to it's distressed plaster walls, cobbled flooring and a feeling of being-there-foreverness.

Lights entwined with grape vines

August restaurant offers European cuisine, with influences from Mediterranean to Northern Europe with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients.

If you're lucky enough to use August as your wedding venue, don't forget your reception items - table plan, place names, table names/numbers and napkin holders.  We can match any of these items to your handmade wedding invitations for a coordinated look.

Natural leaf place names

All your handmade wedding invitations are posted, guests have replied and so now is the time to be thinking of place names for your wedding day. 

With an abundance of leaves at this time of year....Autumn is definitely with us....what about this unexpected and sophisticated idea? 

Bring some nature to your tables by adding dried leaves with beautiful calligraphy written guest names. 

What's also great .... if you make a mistake, collect some more leaves, dry them and re-write!

The Life of Pi

Having just finished the excellent book .... The Life of Pi by Yann Martel, I am thrilled to see that the film of the same name will be released 20th December 2012 (UK).

For those who haven't read the book...a story of a teenage boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son from India, is shipwrecked on the Pacific Ocean with a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal Tiger. 

It is directed by Ang Lee of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Broke back Mountain fame.

I can't wait till it's out and will undoubtedly by taking time off after all the  handmade wedding invitations and stationery are completed, to see it.
