How absolutely soft and sweet are the colors in this bridal shower that was recently featured on Inspired by This? Mint, peach, pink and ivory wedding colors? (…sigh) Everything about this palette is pure loveliness.
We’re always fans of a cute purple succulent!
The pinata style fringe is such a fun twist on the classic wall letters!
Loving these details!
How cute are these little coasters?
And of course a perfect calligraphy favor for guests to take home!
How can you not fall in love with the beauty of letterpress when you see the work of Mama’s Sauce, a gourmet design and print shoppe based out of Orlando, Florida. Beyond that tactile feel of the paper, the studio itself is founded on principles of fine craft and excellent execution—making a name for themselves.
The business is the brainchild of Nick Sambrato, who spoke at our February edition of CreativeMornings/Orlando on investing in your community’s creative capital: its people.
Within minutes of walking the streets of Paris I saw why this city is renowned for being the most romantic place on earth; why it’s the city of lovers.
Ooh La La!
Couples roam the streets hand-in-hand, lip locking under every blooming tree, or on every park bench that boasts an incredible view. The cafe culture here encourages dining out for two, and the elegant yet impressive architecture leaves you feeling like you’re in a romantic dream. The monuments and alleyways have romantic legends associated with them, and the French language rolling off theParisians’ tongues leaves one wanting somebody to share each & every moment with.
The whole of Paris is without doubt a city for love, but most notably must be the idyllic destination of the Pont des Arts pedestrian bridge over the Seine River, where lovers follow the Italian tradition of placing a lock onto the bridge, and throwing they key into the water below to represent their eternal love.
Today my cool, oh-so-very-solo self wondered over the bridge and was left wide-eyed at all the love locks. I watched several couples lock in their love, and even offered to be their photographer extraordinaire. And… okay, this is soooo lame, but I made a point to return to the bridge someday with a special-special someone, because, well, I just think this idea is so cute, cliche and wonderful!
