i usually try to think 'outside the box', well this one is a 'in the box' invitation....for a executive holiday party. each adorned with a silver/glittery ornament. something so special about opening a beautiful box.

unique seating assignment displays

always on the search for unique ideas..had to share these. the shabby chic window panes gave a perfect division for each table. the vintage wagon with wheat grass and the window shutters also add to a rustic feel.

wedding photo box

i had to share the most beautiful birthday gift i received. from my brother and sister in-law. this beautiful box was custom created by sissel byington photography. i think any bride would love to keep her photos and keepsakes in this beautiful box. the back of the box featured the words of van morrison's "someone like you" the first dance. just so special. http://www.sisselbyingtonphotography.com/
~p.s. people have been contacting me about ordering their own box...you can do so by simply emailing sissel byington at the above link.

more napa wedding details...

congratulations meghan and mino! their beautiful wedding is this weekend. i thought i would share some more details from their wedding. her escort cards were placed on corks and then embedding into a vintage trunk lined with moss. (can't wait for those pictures) the table names were spots the couple has traveled so vintage signs were the element they chose. and the programs were a 4x9 amethyst with hemp ties. i love her original sonnet on the program. so romantic and them. it seems to be a escort card/program/menu season here....many more to come. have a blessed weekend!

take me out to a 'ball game' wedding!

my favorite gals at 'salt harbor' wedding planning did this FAB wedding.
the couple, were huge baseball fans, and so even though the wedding colors were turquoise and creme, they wanted to somehow bring baseball and their favorite team into the wedding concept. a slightly vintage approach to baseball was used, stringing escort cards as pennants and naming the tables after the Red Sox best players throughout the decades. custom cross-word puzzles were provided for the guests to work on at the cocktail tables. and of course peanuts and cracker jacks were served! what a fun wedding!
