Sweet Escort Cards

We have been so lucky with our store's traffic, that we received a special request for a sample of our Vintage Burlap Letterpress Invitation to be featured in a photoshoot organized by Dawn Kelly, from the fabulous Soiree Floral, in 2012's fall issue of WellWed Magazine. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with her for this amazing opportunity to get our name out there! For this photoshoot in Nantucket, Mass. we made special matching escort cards made with the same burlap bellyband style from the invitation suite. We are happy to announce we have matching favor tags/escort cards to go along with the suite! Thanks Dawn, for finding us and including us in your vision. 

And a special thanks to BoxCar Press for making our Letterpress plates for these cards, in a jiffy! You guys rock! Read more on "Sweet Escort Cards"...

Happy Friday! Here's quick slideshow of our latest pics from our Chattanooga show at This Ain't Your Mama's Wedding Expo, from March 11th.

It was such a fun weekend. Thanks, Chatty!

A Sweet New Product: Calling All Pig Lovers

Suuuuuuuuuuueeeeyyyyyyy! Did you know that March 1 is National Pig Day? The celebration of the pig was started in 1972 by two sisters to show appreciation of one of nature's most intellectual and domesticated animals. The real question is do you give thanks by letting the pig live for one day longer or do you enjoy what they have to offer?

If you're for hamming it up southern-style, then these down-to-earth and playful invitations are for you! There's nothing like a good 'ol southern BBQ to help you relax with close friends and family the night before your wedding.
