And the paper pieces for this wedding ended up taking center stage. When we were conceptualizing everything, we really felt inspired by watercolor and calligraphy. Handcrafted pieces that addes a sense of art to our...

A Surprise Party, Part I

We have such a treat for you today. It's a party, of course. But it's so much more than that because today, we're really breaking it apart, getting down to the nitty gritty and showing you how to design a beautiful celebration from inspiration to the last toast.
