Detail of the Week

A garden wedding inspired by topiary graphics and floral vines.

I personally love designing invitations for events! In the past year or so, I have had the opportunity to design some invitations, save the date cards, and other pieces for Weddings and Anniversary parties. I love getting into the theme/look of the event and trying out different illustrations, colors, icons, and patterns together with beautiful type. Today, David came across this gorgeous set, designed by Sarah Nelson. I cannot get over her central floral illustration, that so perfectly suits the theme, and plays such a strong role in the look and feel of the print design. Elegant and pretty, don't you think?

  3. I used to work in custom invitations in Toronto when we lived there while my husband was in school so I always, always notice invites. This is probably one of the most gorgeous and creative I have ever seen and I do not say that lightly. Fabulous!!!!
