Personalized Gift Giving

For many, choosing beautiful and useful products from local businesses is important to them when considering gift giving. Regardless of best intentions and many mental (and written) notes to "don't forget to pick up a gift", this can often fall to the side while attending to our everyday routines. Not to mention the business of actually packaging and wrapping!

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to put together a gift package for a client who was out of town and needed to get a gift to a loved one (ASAP!). We put together one of Louelle's silk scarves, zodiac constellation stationery sets, and of course a hand written card. Packaged it up pretty and shipped it to the birthday girl, all while our client relaxed on the beach!

Our Sweetest Honorees: Baby Showers and Children's Birthdays

We have to admit we have babies on the brain lately as Ashley and her husband (my brother) are expecting TWINS! In honor of this impending motherhood/fatherhood/auntiehood, we wanted to share some of our favorite invitations and shower stylings from baby showers and children's birthdays we have created for.

We love the opportunity to create for little ones and their families, and are partial to nostalgic illustrative themes. And because each illustration is created uniquely for each event, the baby/child/parents get to receive the original artwork to be framed! As we are proponents of nurturing art appreciation from a young age, being a part of "baby's first piece of art" puts huge smiles on our faces!

Lovely Fox Baby Shower

Our first baby shower invitation featured a sweet fox gathering wildflowers. The original watercolor illustration greeted recipients upon opening the wax sealed envelope. Wrapped in vintage swiss velvet ribbon with attached registry tag, the text featured hand lettering and complimentary watercolor. during the shower, guests wrote notes to the little one on custom stationery; well wishes and love to the baby and parents.

Meadow Rabbit Baby Shower

Thornton Burgess books and Brer Rabbit inspired our Meadow Rabbit. With a garland of four leaf clovers, this bunny was both sweet and clever. Wrapped with a satin bow tie, the invitations featured front and back watercolor framing. 

This was our first opportunity to work with Scratch Bakeshop in bringing our invitations into a new and delicious light. Using our invitation as inspiration, they crafted a beautiful satiny cake, reflecting the clover garland and ribbons. Together with the framed artwork, the dessert table was dreamy. 

Fawn Baby Shower

Given a woodland inspiration and a color palette of orange, navy, and grey, this little fawn was created. Envelopes were complete with custom liners featuring our birch tree design and buck wax seal. Again, Scratch Bakeshop created these stunning complementary fawn cookies that were absolute show stoppers. A beautiful wicker bassonette filled with little woodland creatures and our framed artwork was gifted to the parents-to-be!

Mermaid Millie First Birthday

Retro styled mermaid was the theme for this first birthday party. Beautiful weather and a backyard celebration were the setting, while corals, foamy greens, and blues were reflected throughout the party. Some fisherman's netting (and Pirate Booty of course!) decorated the tables while the mermaid birthday cake, by Scratch Bakeshop held court at the dessert table. With red hair like the honoree, this under-the-sea queen now graces the birthday girl's bedroom wall.

We have loved creating these keepsakes for our clients and their children; a wonderful way to capture a moment and memory! xo!

Holiday Interview Part 1 - Andrea

What is your holiday party style?

Classic with a twist.  I love pairing vintage pieces with contemporary. In particular my mother's kilt and MacLaughlin kilt pin. I have a strong affinity for my Scottish heritage and love to honor that any chance I get. 

Weirdest holiday tradition? 

I don't know that it's weird but my parents always allowed us to open one gift on Christmas Eve and that was always so exciting. We carry that on with our son too. 

Savory or Sweet? 

Savory. Hands down. You might sway me with some Creme Brûlée though.

Wrapping style?

All over the place. Love me some brown paper and twine, but classic cheesy cartoon reindeer are also in order. 

Favorite Christmas Carol? 

Carol of the Bells. It gives me chills every time. 

Favorite Christmas movie? 

Thats really tough. So many! A Christmas Story, Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Nightmare Before Christmas.  I really can't pick one! 

Favorite part about the holiday season?

I love the two sides of this season. The parties and festivities and energy, and the snuggling up low key and playing cards or dice. Common elements being family and friends.
