invites


A bit of Fall is in the air as we prepare for back to school events and the invites begin to roll in for Autumnal parties and benefits. The above illustration for Sheridan Road Magazine shows a stack of invites and r.s.v.p's falling into place.

I have been noticing some pretty metallic golds, and richly hued envelopes. I just love pretty invites for Soirees. Next time you are preparing to host a party, think of the envelope or a custom hand illustrated invite. Happy to design one for you and your invite!

Patricia,
I love these fresh, fall illustrations! It makes this moody, rainy day feel more like a transition to that fabulous time of year.

Now I just need to think of a great excuse for one of those divine hand illustrated invitations.

I do love beautiful envelopes that arrive in the mail. I usually save them and open when I can truly enjoy the moment!

I just told Alexandra, who is home helping with her dad, and she said, I hope he loves it as much as I did. She spent the last 3 days on Nantucket with two of her closest friends from Union. It was an incredible four years, for her, and for us. Have fun!!

Of course you know how I adore hand-lettered invitations and love getting gorgeous mail. How could one not want to attend an event with your lovely illustrations included on the invite!

I loved what you did for my sister's baby shower. Had so many compliments from thee invitees. At first I kept the original illustration, but it's now at my sister's home, framed and adored.
