“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.

Love Bugs Birthday Bash

Cooper and Addy Birthday Card Photo copy - Copy

It is always an honor when asked to design something special for a child’s birthday party and this one had me bugging out!!  Creepy crawlies everywhere for this brother and sister sharing their special days.  Who doesn’t remember taking their box or jar outside as  a kid and collecting butterflies, bees, caterpillars, ladybugs and the all time favorite lightning bugs.  Oh, to be little and carefree!!  Enjoy Cooper and Addy, Happy Birthday!!

A Southern Affair

This bride originally wanted to incorporate pears into her invitation suite using colors of espresso and green.  However, when the maid of honor and her four year old flower girl tried on this adorable dress in guava, we simply eliminated the pears from the invitation and used a beautiful ribbon that tied all the colors together and kept a touch of green the bride originally wanted.  The end result was simply breathtaking.  The outdoor wedding will be at an old farm in south Georgia, complete with candlelit mason jars hanging from 100 year oaks and homemade pear preserves that the bride and groom will give as favors to their guest.  Oh, the beauty and simplicity in all things Southern!
