4th of July Pre Wedding Picnic Invitations in Purple



Purple is the theme of the day here! I made a cute set of custom 4th of July picnic invitations for a couple getting married in Connecticut. Before their wedding they wanted to have an informal get together with their guests, so they had a pre-wedding picnic. 

Often the reception can feel rushed for the bride and groom, who spend the whole time trying to connect with all of their guests - having a pre or post wedding event like a BBQ or Bruch can be a great way to say hi in a more casual setting.

Below that, we have a picture of a cute way to package stationery - I had some extra pieces left from a nautical chart and used them as a belly band around the stack of envelopes and tied them off with a bow made from navy and white striped baker's twine.

If you're interested in ordering some party invitations, feel free to contact me!

Cape Cod Map Save the Dates with Icons for the Ceremony and Reception Venues

Light Blue Cape Cod Save the Date with icons over venue and reception by Concertina Press
Most people have their wedding reception near to their ceremony location - but what about if they're in different towns? How do you let your guests know? One of my customers from last summer solved that problem with my Cape Cod Save the Date, by putting two icons on the map - a tiny heart for the ceremony location in Orleans, and a tiny cake for the reception in West Dennis. So cute, and it let her guests know that they could look for accommodations in either town, or anywhere in between! She further customized the design by pairing the navy map with light blue envelopes.

I wrapped up the save the dates in pretty gold and white tissue paper, and wrote a little thank you note on my sea bream thank you cards, tied up with baker's twine, making a very pretty package for the bride and groom to open.

If you're interested in ordering your own set of Cape Cod map save the dates, you can buy a sample here or contact me!

Funny Birthday Card for Coastal New Englanders

you can buy this card online here: Quahog Birthday Card

Happy birthday to you and all of your wicked awesome New Englandah friends!

Ok, to someone who has no idea how to pronounce "quahog" the awesomeness of this card may escape you - "a clam birthday? quay-hog? cow-hog?" in fact, this word is pronounced "co-hog" and it's a tasty clam. Can't wait to go quahogging this summer!

This 5"x7" birthday card has a lovely quahog on the front, along with the words "Happy Birthday - Quahog wild!". Inside it says "If you don't get this, you're probably not from New England". There's plenty of room for your own message, too, like "I went to the Cape and all I got you was this Cod".

Watercolor Beach Wedding Invitations for Florida Weddings

Watercolor Beach Wedding Invitations from Concertina Press
 You can purchase a sample of these in my shop: Calm Sea Watercolor Beach Wedding Invitations

I love the ocean, and while most poeple think of crashing waves and bright sun, the shore has all kinds of "moods" and one of my favorite is when the water is a flat calm and you can see for miles! I did a watercolor painting to capture the scene and used it to make these lovely watercolor wedding invitations, perfect for a beach wedding.
aqua wedding invitation envelopes and textured gray paper is a pretty color pairing for a beach wedding

In a funny coincidence, I created these Cocoa Beach wedding invitations for a couple almost a year before moving to Cocoa Beach myself!
