“Laissez le bons temps rouler”

…and they did on Saturday evening at the Dallas Country Club, as parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and sponsors of The da Vinci School celebrated at the 2018 Mardi Gras Masquerade Gala.  Designing these glamorous invitations for this years event was so much fun.  Can you just imagine opening the metallic snow envelope and having that big beautiful peacock eye starring back at you?  What a great time I had this year designing the logo, invitations, programs and signage for the schools yearly gala, which uses all the donations raised, to further their mission of making a positive difference in the lives of their students and by developing a lifelong love of learning and making a positive impact on their community.

Up in the sky
Poppin’ champagne
Livin’ my life
In the fast lane
And I won’t change
For the glamorous, oh the flossy flossy…

Fairy Tales Do Come True

Kelly and Cameron at Rehearsal DinnerI was so incredibly excited to create invitations for two very special people. All the excitement leading up to their special day was electrifying. From the Rehearsal Dinner Celebration to the moment Kelly and Cameron said their I Do’s in front of their friends and family, you could feel the love that brought them together. The Princess got her Prince at a lovely castle and it was nothing short of a Grand Ball Reception that followed.

A Castle Fit for a Princess

I was completely over the moon when I was asked to design the wedding invitations for this lovely couple from Raleigh, NC – Everything is set for Summer 2015 and waiting for the “I Do’s” in a castle fit for Cinderella and her Prince. It doesn’t hurt that the Groom to be, looks just like another prince we know; and to top it off, he was born in England. The wedding will be in blush pink, metallic beige, gold and ivory. Enjoy this sneak peak at Kelly and Cameron’s engagement photos.

The Polished Princess

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.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

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.
