Anthropologie Save-The-Date

Some people don’t realize that your wedding invitation is as important as any major detail with regards to your big day. It’s not only one way to show your guests your personality as a couple and as individuals but it also makes your guests understand what they can expect when they arrive at your wedding.

But…with all the preparations you have to consider, your wedding invitations might be pushed down the priority list. Hence, the Save-The-Dates. With STDs (sounds weird right?), you can go as creative as you want , whether it’s a video or a simple image or a pretty little package like the one I’m about to show you today.

These adorable package is from Chocolate Creative Design! It’s whimsical, earth-friendly, and not to mention – pure genius!

Saw this from Sparkle & Hay, a new addition to my favorite blogs! So make sure to check it our here as well.

DIY Carnival Invites

Happy Queen’s Day everyone! And a Happy Monday of course! This week it’s going to be about R&B’s projects for the first quarter of 2011. I haven’t really had the time to compile everything so having this Monday off is just perfect timing.

First off, we had the honor of hosting a Mardi Gras/Carnival-themed 18th birthday at Fiamma Bar last January. Remember this mood board I posted before? Well, we had put out these multicolored invites for all of her guests.

Pretty colors, don’t you think? The concept is somewhat like an enlarged admit one ticket.

The envelopes are like vintage popcorn bags. I wasn’t able to find the red & white stripes so I just settled for the white one. At least it shows off the color of the invite from the inside.

Here’s what you need to create these festive invites:

– Multicolored/Metallic boards
– Vellum paper (for the envelopes)
– Scissors/Paper cutter
– Printer
– Gold strings (for the tag)

Oh, how can I forget about the fonts! I chose mine from Magic Jelly’s collection of her favorites carnival fonts here. The best about it is some of them are free from Enjoy!

More photos to come, so stay tuned this week!
