Inspiration to Invitation: A Modern Alphabet Chart Baby Shower Invitation

Modern Alphabet Chart Baby Shower Invitation

A while back I created this modern take on an Alphabet Chart baby shower invitation that is featured today on the Wedding Chicks amazing new site On to Baby. This shower was to take place at Royal T’s, a hip pop art inspired gallery space in Los Angeles. With the pop art inspiration in mind, I created individual characters to represent each letter.

For an even more sunshine filled design I quoted my favorite line from Doe, a deer.  “…. a ray, a drop of golden sun” on the poster sized invitations envelope.

Inspiration to Colorization: Go BOLD with your Colorful Wedding!

Dare to go BOLD with your Colorful Wedding!

It’s no secret I am a huge fan of big bold colors and unbashful design directions. So many brides opt for a softer pastel palette when their favorite colors are of the brighter hue. With the right amount of balance of neutrals to even things out, playing with colors for your big day can make a huge, yet still tasteful, splash! Gone are the days when a bride would pick her ‘color’. Albeit it was 80′s… But really. There is a plethora of gorgeous shades out in this beautiful world, and yet brides would paint the walls, tables, flowers, and even her brides maids, the same shade of sage or pepto bismo pink!

Here are a few of my colorful wedding inspirations via Kelly Wearstler and the amazing collection from Form Decor that I recently used for a photoshoot.

Destination to Vacation Fashion & Accessorization: Bermuda Honeymoon Vacation Style

Bermuda Honeymoon Fashion for your Tropical Vacation

With the weather warming up and a vacation on the horizon it’s time to pull out the pastels and get your vacation or honeymoon style together. I was so excited when I heard that Calypso was doing a line for Target, and admittedly, I cleaned up a bit recently while on a ‘toothpaste’ run. These brightly colored fun and festive pieces make for the perfect pack-aways for any warm tropical vacation. With Bermuda on my vacation calendar only weeks away I wanted to share with you some of my top picks for  a stylish honeymoon wardrobe and some of my photos of my last years trip to the sun drenched island.

Bracelets by Rachel Leigh, Sandals by Cole Haan (in my closet!), Purple silk top by Calypso for Target (in my closet!), bottom row Resort 2011 Chanel

With so many gorgeous old churches, sun-drenched resorts and crystal clear aqua blue water, Bermuda would make for an amazing destination wedding location as well as honeymoon spot.

This beautiful and warm British Island is only a hop I can hear the steel drums and swizzles calling me already…
