The Polished Princess

December 23, 2014

What do you do when your little princess has fallen in love with dinosaurs? Plan her a fabulous 3rd Birthday Party at The Perot Museum of Nature and Science of course. Challenging, yes, but when this special little clients mom requested that I create an invitation to combine her little girls love of Princesses and Dinosaurs, the result was a lovely collaboration of beauty and science.

Southwest Classic

October 31, 2014

It is always a great honor when my clients give me complete design control over their invitations, from design concept to completion. Texas has waited 2 years to see these rival teams: Texas A&M vs. University of Arkansas take the field in the Southwest Classic played at Dallas Cowboy Stadium. The invitations are a boxed invitation in black, custom field markers with invitation on top. Inside this clients customers will find two faux “tickets” to join them in their luxury suite. The back of the ticket has both teams 2014 schedules and can be used as a book mark. They will also find two custom team sugar cookies in a field of green “grass”.

This Child of Mine

October 31, 2014

How honored I was to be asked to design the invitation for these two little cousins christening; especially since I had designed Melina’s Baby Shower Invitations for little Athena just months prior. The request was for something classically traditional for a Greek Orthodox Christening. The invitation is printed in navy and maroon on natural cream double thick cardstock, the envelope in natural cream felt with a metallic navy liner. The result, an invitation respectful of such an important occasion.

So fortunate to design the annual Christmas Bash Invitations for this wonderful young lady in Georgia. She always puts together an inspired theme every year to celebrate the season with her friends. This years theme was “Boots” every kind and style from cowboy to knee high leather. The only request to her guests were for them to wear their most fabulous boots and boogie the night away.

Black Crow Media Open House

November 17, 2011

Black Crow Media, based in Daytona, Florida, owns and operates both AM and FM radio stations in 5 markets over 4 states.  The Valdosta, Georgia market, celebrated their annual Open House on November 10th.  When I was asked to design the invitation for the event, I knew it had to reflect everything that is special about everyone at Black Crow.  The lucky clients and community members who received an invitation were treated to an evening of music and great food.  All of the studios were open, so everyone could get a behind the scenes view into the life of the DJ’s, Production Assistants and Sales and Marketing Teams that make Black Crow a leader in their field.  Black Crow operates 7 stations in Valdosta: Newstalk 105.9 WVGA, Rock 108, 99.5 Kix Country, Hot 102.7, 106.9 The Eagle, 95.7 The Mix and Star 105.3, as well as their digital media outlet ValdostaToday.com

Casino Invitations

November 3, 2011

Ever since I published the Casino Invitations for the boys at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, I have received numerous requests for this invitation.  Recently, I had a request to take it out of the box and create a flat invitation for a Sweet Sixteen.  This particular invitation plays homage to The Hard Rock Casino.  I hope that you like it as much as I enjoyed taking it in a new direction.

What could be more fun, than your family and friends, gathering together to  suprise you on your 50th Birthday?  A good time had by all!  This invitation was created in black thermography on quartz metallic,  with swarovski crystals dropping from the chandelier, the invitation back and envelope liner in black venetian swirl.  The outer envelope in black, with postage of a very young and beautiful Miss Kathryn Hepburn, in black and white with a black and white damask envelope wrap. 

These are the three wedding invitations that I created, that will be voted on, for the Ultimate Wedding Giveaway at Hot 102.7 in Valdosta, Georgia. 

Feelin’ Lucky?

January 20, 2011

I was recently asked to design an invitation for a group of guys who were hosting a Bachelor Party at the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Wonder what the Bride’s doing?

Can you just imagine it?  It is the Golden Age in Hollywood when women wore gorgeous gowns and furs and men wore their tuxes or suits to dinner and dance.  The era of jazz and the speakeasy, supper clubs and big bands.  For this Grand Dame’s 80th Birthday Party her family is hosting a weekend of reminiscing and celebrating in style.  The highlight of the weekend is to be a 1930’s Dinner and Dance.  The invitations were created with a vintage style and grace to honor such a special lady.  Even the stamps were created especially for this invitation suite.
