2012 DIY Oscar Party!

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

I’m so excited to share my Oscar printables for this year! I wasn’t sure if I was even going to do them but I’ve been getting a ton of requests for them and I got really excited about updating the set. The theme this year is black, white, gold and kraft paper. I know, super original, but I think the design is a playful mix of formal and slightly rustic hints.

This year’s entry  contains invites, paper oscar statuettes, popcorn boxes, drink tags and of course ballots; everything you need to throw a red carpet party in style! Oh, and I finally put together an “Oreo Cake” that I’ve been obsessed with since I saw it the Martha Stewart 2010 September issue. Tasty, but mighty dangerous indeed!

OSCAR INVITATION
This simple invite gets some glamour when paired with a black string & button envelope. Add a little extra fun by hinting at the Oscars and addressing the envelope with the title “and the invitation goes to…”

PAPER OSCAR STATUETTES
I didn’t know if this idea was going to work but I knew I wanted to create a three-dimentional form of the oscar somehow for the decorations and table setting. These turned out to be far easier than I ever anticipated and added the perfect amount of Oscar spirit!

POPCORN BOXES
What movie night would be complete without popcorn? I couldn’t resist, so these popcorn boxes can be printed and folded together to complete the scene. I filled cellophane bags with homemade popcorn, then tied them off with b&w ribbon and placed them into each box. You could easily skip the bag and just fill the boxes with popcorn too.

DRINK TAGS / PLACE CARDS
These simple tags play double-duty as both drink tags and place cards at a table setting. Simply print, cut and secure by interlocking the provided adjustable slots. Write in guests name in advance or let them do it themselves when they arrive.

OSCAR VOTING BALLOTS
Last but not least, every Oscar party needs a voting ballot! I recommend sending these out with the invitation or having guest arrive early in order to have time to vote for who they think will win. It’s a fun way to get everyone engaged and enlists some competitive spirit.
Tally up the results and finish the night by awarding the player with the most correct votes a movie themed prize or an Oscar Statuette!

I hope some of you are planning an Oscar party this year and perhaps some of these printables will come in handy. I’m excited to see who’ll win and I have my fingers crossed for the Artist to take Best Picture. If you haven’t already seen it, I highly recommend it. It’s by far one of the best films I’ve seen in awhile and such a cute story!

Poppies For Grace

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

I recently discovered the work of Poppies for Grace and not only do I love what they do but the styling for these images is stunning! Alan and Sara are the designers behind the Poppies wedding stationary and they worked together with photographer Armel to capture their work beautifully. Love, love, LOVE! See more of what they do in their shop and be sure to check out their blog too!



I spotted this beautiful first birthday invitation and certificate on Pinterest yesterday in Inspired Bride’s collection. This suite was created by the husband and wife team of Duet letterpress for their adorable daughter, Emily. What a lucky girl!

The invitation is letterpressed on the smaller pink card and details from the 1st year are included in the certificate. Both were bundled up with baker’s twine along with a picture of the birthday girl in a small glassine envelope.

I think the certificate is such a sweet way of celebrating all those simple moments and big milestones with your friends and family. See more pictures and find out the details about the printing here.

Undoubtedly, many of you have already seen these beautiful wedding invitations on Snippet & Ink and Oh So Beatiful Paper but in case you hadn’t I thought I share. Kathryn of Snippet & Ink was married this last December in San Francisco and her wedding was absolutely stunning! Every detail was executed brilliantly all while having that casual laid back sophistication – much like Kathryn herself.

I literally gasped when I saw her entire wedding suite! The subtle grey type on white paper with the bold pops of red are breathtaking! My favorite detail is the hand-edged red on the invitation and reception card along with the red hand-boardered envelopes. Oh and the bride and groom – AH-DORBS! Be sure to check out the rest of this lovely suite here and see more details of Kathryn and Ryan’s enchanting wedding here, here and here!

I’m signing off early this week friends but I’ll see you all back here Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

 



New Save The Dates In The Shop!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been working on a new addition to the Etsy shop recently and I’m thrilled to be able to share with all of you! I wanted to create a unique Save The Date card based off of a matchbook. The covers are letterpressed in gold metallic ink onto light blue, pink or green stock. Inside, are custom magnets that are perforated at the bottom so they can be torn off and saved on a refrigerator.

I am so excited with how these turned out and have definitely been inspired by lace and spring colors! You can check out the new Save The Dates here – hope you like them!
