Birthday Safari

My friend Tammy knows how to throw a great party. I've been doing invitations for her for a few years now and she always has a fun theme picked out. This year, her youngest is turning one and she's having a safari-themed blowout. I have no doubt that little Blake will in some way coordinate with mom's theme. We did postcards for this momentous occasion which should leave Tammy some extra cash for the leopard print cake. Don't think she won't! Happy Birthday, Blake!

Kristen + Tracey

Kristen & Tracey are having a photo booth at their wedding (how cool is that?) So it only seemed appropriate to use that as inspiration for their save the dates, which includes some goofy portraits of the bride and groom-to-be, as well as a great shot of their smiling pooch, Flannigan. This will be sent out as a postcard that can also double as a bookmark. Voila! Form and function! And a low-cost alternative to traditional save the dates. Emily Estfan of EME Photography was the talented photographer behind these great shots.

TaKen Video Productions

I recently had the chance to work with Christa Middleman and Kendra Davidson of Taken Video Productions. What a team! I had a lot of fun on this project as they were both open to a lot of ideas for the branding of their company. We came up with a new logo, some snazzy business cards and a website. Pictured below is the front of their business card.

I recently participated in the 1st annual NACE Events Elements Competition for tabletop design with the girls from Bright Event Gallery. Our themes were "Fire" and "Earth" and we placed 3rd for our Earth table. Saa-weeeeet! For the Earth table, we used newspaper to create menu pockets, and river rocks for place cards. Victoria even fashioned some centerpieces out of newspaper. There were also bamboo chairs, burlap favor bags and recycled 3-D table numbers. For the Fire table, we went with a "where there's smoke, there's fire" theme. Lots of shades of gray -- and check out those chargers! Have you ever seen so much bling? The menus were done on translucent vellum, and we did tiny place cards that came with a magnifying glass. Because magnifying glass + sun = fire and smoke. Thanks to Kelly & Victoria over at Bright for sharing the photos and inviting me to take part in this!
