Business Cards | The Southern Bees

June 19, 2011
Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Father's Day weekend but now it's back to the grind! First thing this week I want to share with you one of my newest projects! These are the business cards that I (and my aunt - thanks!) designed for The Southern Bees. They are double-sided and were printed on a heavy cardstock with a glossy finish. I was so happy with the way they turned out and am so excited to give them to everyone I know! :)


Introducing The Southern Bees

June 10, 2011
Yesterday was a very exciting day! My aunt and I have decided to start our own event planning business and it was the official launch of our website + blog. We both have a passion for pretty things and have always enjoyed planning events of all kinds. We still have some things to do to complete the site but go ahead and take a look around! "The Buzzzz" will be a place for us to share recent work done for our clients and the beautiful things in this life that inspire us. Thank you for your support and for going along this journey with us! We can't wait to see what is in store! :)

Also, up on The Buzzzz blog today - the rest of the DIY Striped Baby Shower I shared a little of on Wednesday!

Party Theme | DIY Striped Baby Shower

June 8, 2011
Two weekends ago I co-hosted a baby shower for my friend Jenny who is due in August! It was so fun and I can't wait to share photos (taken by Jenny's brother who is also a photographer!) from the party with you soon! I'm still in the process of moving and getting settled here in Nashville, so bare with me! :) For now I'll just share two of the details - the invitations and the yarn wrapped L that sat on the dessert table. The stripes on the invitation matched the fabric used for the table runner and the flag banner (which I'll share soon!).
I had tried this months ago and failed miserably (which was a hit to my crafty ego because I normally do not fail in this department) but after following a tutorial I was ready to give it another try! Thankfully, this time around it turned out great! I love it and it was the perfect addition to the dessert table! It also doubled as a gift for Jenny. TIP* Include decorations into your decor that can double as gifts to save on cost!


Wedding Invitation Suite | Sam + Mitch

June 7, 2011
I am so excited to finally share Sam and Mitch's wedding invitation suite! The big day will be here before they know it! I love this suite so much! It is elegant but still very much modern. These were printed on a pearlescent cardstock (which is a little more visible in the photos below) and were paired with foil lined envelopes. Congrats Sam + Mitch - so happy for you two!
