Silk Box Invitation with Feathers

Oh So Elegant! Silk Box Wedding Invitation With Crystal Brooch and Feather Detailing.

We’ve been in full swing for our fall and winter weddings these past few months and are super excited about these silk box wedding invitations that went out last week! Tina and Paul are having a sure-to-be-spectacular Los Angeles wedding. We were thrilled  to be able to go all out and design a beautiful invitation for their big event. We letterpressed a gorgeous beaded floral pattern in silver and midnight blue on Crane’s Lettra paper, mounted it onto a crushed silver backing and embellished with rhinestones. Top it off with a large flower Swarovski rhinestone filigree brooch with a custom made feather rondele and it is sure to tickle the fancy of their guests! We even designed a custom mailing box to match. Want something truly fabulous for your wedding? Contact us and let us see how we can make your wedding invitations into something memorable that is sure to be a keepsake.

Its a Big ‘Un!!

The other week I got a call from a lady with a strange request…

Lady: “Hello, I wanted to see how much your invitations were.”
Me: “Sure, which design are you interested in?”
Lady: “Well, I want something custom with Peacock feathers and silk.”
Me: “Sure, we can do that for you. How many do you need?”
Lady: “One big one.”
Me: “Just one? How big? 6 by 9 inches?”
Lady:”No, really big… like 17 by 22 inches ”
Me: “What?!”

And so the project began. Here are the photos to prove it. The biggest invitation we’ve ever done. It turned out quite beautiful actually. Found out it will be presented and displayed with custom calligraphy inside at an equally grand event.

Sometimes we get some offbeat requests, but I’ve always told everyone that we can make anything and make it well!

Ooh La La! It’s Pamper Time!
