I am so excited to share the stationary and special details I created for the “All That Glitters Is Gold” shoot that is featured on 100 Layer Cake, styled by Kelly of A Savvy Event. Below are images that include the crazy confetti invite, calligraphy escort noise makers + tags, calligraphy (by me) place cards, confetti poppers, menus, and special New Years Eve guest book (sold on Etsy)!
Make sure to check out all the photos on 100 Layer Cake.
About my work:
Most importantly my inspiration was CONFETTI!!! As for my work, the goal was to create something totally unique for the invitation. In the Summer of 2013, I pitched a bride an invitation suite that was sent in a mailing tube, and I wanted to revisit the idea. Learning that it really isn’t that much more expensive to mail, I began playing with the idea more and looking into materials. ULINE sells clear packing tubes, usually used for retail materials, but I found a new use… INVITES! I wanted the invite to have the “surprise and delight” factor, so I made custom patterns and used some glitter paper to create confetti to hide the invitation in. As for the other pieces, party poppers were a given, but I wanted to more and created noise maker tags and the NYE guest book. The noise maker tags were a great way to create escort tags. They include my pattern as a design detail, the guests table number and their name in calligraphy. I hope next year I can create something like this for a wedding or event.
