I know I haven’t been posting in a while. I’ve been busy with designing, doing customer request custom designs, and running our small business! There is a ton of work to do when you run a small business such as ours. I still have to update our site here with all our lastest new designs, but I can’t seem to find the time. But, I wanted to add a blog post showcasing some new additions to our store at the very least.
We recently had a custom request to expand on the matching products we had available for one of our popular wedding invitations - our black and white floral damask, black ribbon, and pink gerber (gerbera) daisy flower wedding invitation.

Are you a proud Scott? Do you like medieval, celtic, or renaissance themes? Scottish tartan themed weddings really fit a medieval, celtic, or renaissance theme and are a great way to celebrate your Scottish pride. Nowadays the groom wearing his traditional family tartan, or one of the universal Sottish tartans, has become a very popular idea. This isn’t just a great theme for Scots. There are plenty of Irish and Welsh tartans to choose from as well.
You can go fairly simple with this theme and have only the groom wearing a dress kilt and a piper playing celtic music throughout the ceremony or you can go all out and add bits of the tartan to your wedding cake, wedding invitations, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, flower Read More » »

Fall weddings are not only beautiful, but also a very smart idea. Nature comes alive with natural, vibrant, earthy colors in pretty forms of berries, fruits, and leaves.
Bouquets, center pieces, and other decorations can include twigs, berries, fruits, and vibrantly colored leaves in addition to flowers.
The weather in autumn also makes it a good choice because there is less chance of rain generally, and the temperatures are not as hot as in the summer. Insects are on the decline as well. Many areas you can still easily get away with an outdoor wedding that is very pleasant. And, since it is harvest time, you can get fresher produce than at any other time of the year.
But, the beauty of the season is not the only reason to consider an Read More » »
