Gold Foil Printed Invitations and Paper Design

Ashley and Derek’s wedding at the Detroit Athletic club was just gorgeous!  I had the honor of creating the gold foil printed invitations and wedding paper design with vintage scroll frame.  The Detroit Athletic club wedding invitations included an insert for the after party at the Abby Bowling Alley.  The belly band on the invitation is printed gold on gold and holds all of the inserts behind the invitation.  Die cut envelopes were printed with a gold foil stamped design on the back flap with matching ceremony programs, favor stickers, sweets table sign, table numbers, place cards and beverage napkins.  Congratulations, Ashley and Derek!

New Years Eve Wedding

I had the pleasure of designing the invitations, programs and table numbers for Kelly and Kelley’s New Year’s Eve Wedding. The invitations were inspired by Lauren and Joseph’s wedding invitation.  The typography of the wedding invitation is the design of these invitations and has become one of my most requested designs.  Her silver and white wedding invitations were designed with four different fonts and the style was carried over to all of the pieces of the invitation suite.  The wedding ceremony programs are a shimmery white and folded off center to recreate a side reveal. The wedding mass was at the Basilica of Saint John the Evangelist in Stamford, CT. Their reception was at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, NY.

A Harry Potter Inspired Wedding


A Harry Potter inspired wedding was photographed by Jeffrey Bennett of JLBwedding. He captured Sarah and Nils’s one-of-a-kind Harry Potter themed Wedding Reception beautifully. Everything matched perfectly with the Harry Potter theme from the decor to the desserts. The set up was elegant and classy with a fun twist that fit their love for Harry Potter. Themed weddings are always so much fun! I had the honor of creating the place card signage, table numbers, and invitations.

Thanksgiving Table Settings With Tisha Holman Events

Since Thanksgiving is this week, I am happy to share with you that I am so honored to have the incredibly talented Tisha Holman from Tisha Holman Events include Gourmet Invitations on her holiday table decorating segment on The Broadcast! This month she did one on Thanksgiving Table Settings. I supplied the place cards, acorn menu and the “I am thankful for” cards. Some of Tisha’s holiday table setting tips were:

– Instead of placing your food in the center of the table, set up a buffet somewhere else like in the kitchen– then create a table setting that will encourage conversation. Use low-centerpieces and florals so that guests can still see each other and interact.

– Have guests share a few things they are thankful for. Sometimes life has us so pre-occupied we can forget to stop and reflect on the blessings we have.

– Make dessert a part of the table decor! Mini desserts are a great way to add something sweet to the table, and then guests don’t even have to get up when it’s time to enjoy!

The fabulous professionals that participated in the segment are as follows:

Desserts- Nothing Bundt Cakes – Plano  and The Vinson Company

Florals – Haute Floral

Elegant Place Settings

I love working with fantastic event planners that have an eye for style and have some great new ideas. We recently provided different types of menu options for a stylized shoot with Ms. Lenee Valentine that showcased different ways you can create elegant place settings. The first option was a pearl typographic menu with black ink and the second was a clear acrylic menu with fuchsia ink that went right on top of the plate. Another fun item we provided were the personalized photo gift boxes that were to go to each guest and mark their place setting. A huge thank you goes to the wonderful photographer Robyn Aaron of Robyn Photo!
