Carciofi at the Castle

Carciofi Design at Oheka Castle Bridal Show

That’s Oheka Castle in New York… Marie Danielle from À Votre Service Events gave us a call and asked if we’d be interested in doing some fabulous menus for their table at the Oheka Castle Bridal Show and we didn’t have to think twice. The menu is of course ultra glamorous and doubles as a wedding favor/keepsake. The menu slips out of the built in frame and guests can slip in a photo in it’s place. Beautiful at your wedding reception and a wonderful gift!

Marie Danielle at À Votre Service Events is a wedding planner extraordinaire with amazing taste. If you need to hire a wedding planner in the NY area, don’t hesitate. She is the best! We’ve had the pleasure of working with several of her clients who all rave about her, and looking at her table design you can see why. If you haven’t heard of Oheka, they are one of the most fabulous, fairy tale wedding sites on the east coast. They’ve been featured several times on Platinum Weddings and you can visit their website here.

Ooh La La! It’s Pamper Time!

Fabulous Feather Invitation for Pamper Me Fabulous 2010

Check out the ultra chic invite we did for Pamper Me Fabulous! The invitation and event inserts tuck into a crushed pearl rigid pocket, trimmed off with hot pink ribbon, white down feathers and a BIG Swarovski crystal.

Pamper Me Fabulous brings together all the things you and your girlfriends love. Take a break from the stresses of life to luxuriate in mini beauty and spa services from the best spas and salons, shop for beauty products and other must-haves, taste gourmet sweets and eats and score a Hollywood-style swag bag all under one swanky roof in the heart of LA. (You’ll be “giving,” too! Ten percent of all ticket sales to the event benefit Step Up Women’s Network.)

Resistance is Futile

Ok, I have been putting off having to do this blog thing for a while… a long while. Until now I’ve resisted the urging by the powers that be to blog, facebook and tweet. I figured that I’ve been busy enough designing the invitations, photographing everything, putting it on the website, handling orders, juggling clients. I mean blog… do I really have to? Ok, I guess the powers that be win this one.

So, this is where I will be posting everything that is new with the world of Carciofi Design. I promise to post at least once a week and keep you updated with all the latest goings on. Hopefully it will be somewhat interesting and a little fun. See you out there in the big, wide webby world!
