A DIVINE Vendor at The Knot Party

Not too long ago I was introduced to Christina Patton, an incredibly talented party planner and florist. Christina started a unique company, Cereal Killer Buffets which offers “personalized dessert buffet services offering cupcakes, candy, ice cream, cookies, cake pops, whoopie pies, cotton candy stands, and chocolate dipped sweets for weddings, special events, and all of your Orange County party needs!”  She’s a true talent, whose personality and smile shine just like her work does! As a Preferred Vendor of The Knot, Christina is professional, thorough, organized, and so creative.  She approached me quite some time ago about designing tags for her custom treat buffet she was asked to design for  The Knot’s Vendor Party. The Knot, the premiere Web reference for all things wedding related, hosts a party each year allowing vendors to network and view each other’s work, in a fun social setting. It’s quite the honor that Christina was able to feauture her work, and I am so grateful that she chose to work with me as well! It was fun to work with someone who trusted me in the design process.  I enjoyed working with Christina and coming up with 3 adorable versions of the tags, displayed in different color palates through her buffet.  

Special thanks to photographer Troy Grover who shared his talents as well. Thanks for capturing all of the details of the day. (Check out his work too!)

Thanks so much Christina for featuring my work. Oh and did I mention this  DIVINE Vendor also owns a floral design company Pretty Witty Petals.  Stay tuned because we’re going to feature her again. She really is talented!

Engagement Party Invitation

I am excited to show you this item because we recently featured it on an Inspiration Board for an upcoming wedding. We were priveleged to be asked to design an engagemnt party invitation for a great couple, my cousin Andy & Taylor’s. We chose the letterpress and thermography combination. It’s a fresh, classic choice clearing conveying the casual yet elegant tone of the event. I also liked that the simplistic word choices we made here.

Tip: We also included a direction card with registry note at the bottom. Though most often a Web address is listed which details the registry or directions to an event it is a courtesy to include that information. Especially in cases where guests may be less than computer-savvy (or even elderly) you can prevent confusion and a lot of phone calls by clearly telling your guests such information. Such small cards are affordable and practical!
