Stunning designs {make any event special}

March 25, 2013

It’s spring. The Diva loves weddings  {ok, no wisecracks from the peanut gallery!} and this is about the time a young girl’s fancy turns to love, June weddings 
and beautiful, romantic wedding invitations. 
I just had to share. 
Plum color and green? 
Perfect for a wine country wedding:

See?  This is how the whole scene could look. Tres romantic!
Hmm…might be worth getting married all over again!

Really, I like this so much, stop me before I wed again!
I know I say I never will, again, but this is so lovely
maybe I should think again! 

Back in the day, elegant wedding invitations were black, white and engraved. 
Cream-colored was daring. An elegant invitation can still be black and cream, 
but pops of subtle color and contemporary design elements give wedding invitations an edge over those old-school invites.
And can you get more “today” than this one, below?

For, like, ever!

This makes me smile–I want to know this couple!

Maybe you want to have a little MORE fun–and what’s more eye-catching than a fun wedding invitation that captures the personality of the happy couple? 
I’ll bet this was a fun wedding!

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite among’s wedding invitations, but this ranks right up there. Perfect for a young couple.  Here’s how the whole scene plays out:

Villa. Italy. I am THERE.

And then, {melt}:

Note to self: Do this for your next wedding. 
Really, though,
it would be in my next life, 
as I have had more than enough weddings for this one.
Inspire your own celebration: 
all by talented independent designers.
But …that’s not all…..what what other beautifully designed goods do they offer? Plenty!

I’m melting….

 Adorable art, and for every room in the house, 
including some very cute art for a baby’s room.
