April 25, 2013
What do you get when you combine glittery gold, confetti, champagne bubbles, chevron and pretty pinks?! Well, my friends, you get happy SMP bloggers and one gorgeous Kate Spade-inspired invitation suite from the oh-so-talented Nichole of Coral Pheasant Stationery + Design. She stuns me every time with her designs that are always so beautifully assembled, and this one? Right up there in my top five. See the entire pretty package right here in the gallery! Oh, and if your a die-hard Kate Spade fan like me, you're going to love this Kate Spade inspired picnic round-up and ideas over on SMP Living.
From Nichole... As a diehard lover of Kate Spade and all things paper, Megan was a girl after my own heart. She knew right off the bat that she wanted her wed­ding invi­ta­tions to reflect the play­ful and cheeky aes­thetic of Kate Spade. The design I cre­ated was the epit­ome of all things fun and cel­e­bra­tory: cham­pagne, chevron and con­fetti in shades of punchy pink and gold foil. The invi­ta­tion com­bines a play­ful script font with a quirky serif and gold con­fetti. The cards are a mix of let­ter­press and gold foil on nice n’ thick 220 lb. Crane’s Let­tra, with the main invi­ta­tion being edge tinted in a bright pink for extra pop.
In research­ing ideas for Megan and Mike’s invi­ta­tion, I came upon a quote from Jane Austin’s Emma. I had already incor­po­rated the arrow as a graphic ele­ment and the quote paired beau­ti­fully with the design. It reads: “It darted through her with the speed of an arrow that Mr. Knightly must marry no one but her­self!” With one slight mod­i­fi­ca­tion – Mr. Knightly was replaced with Mr. Vipond (the last name of the groom) – it was a per­fect fit! When I shared this idea with Megan she was delighted – but for another rea­son. The song of her col­lege soror­ity was “Speed Thee My Arrow” and many of her soror­ity sis­ters would be guests at their wed­ding. Sig­nif­i­cance on mul­ti­ple lev­els – I loved it and more impor­tantly, so did Megan!

The cards of the suite was stacked accord­ing to size and tied with a navy silk rib­bon. The top­most item was a pink coin enve­lope with a gold glit­ter wed­ding web­site card – a sim­ple piece that delighted every­one when they opened the envelope.
