Two Smart Cookies : Come see me Friday!

Our local Savannah bakery called Two Smart Cookies started Smart Fridays in the summer. Every Friday, owners, Amanda and Annette, ask a local artist to feature their work inside the bakery in their fabulous gift shop. They contacted me a few weeks ago and I'll be there tomorrow! Please stop by to say hello and to grab a few of their oh-so-famous iced sugar cookies. They are a perfect fit for shower favors, new home owners, birthday parties, wedding favors and more! A lot of my clients have taken their custom invitation and had Two Smart Cookies design a custom matching cookie for their event! The gift shop also has the most unique jewelry, home decor and accessories. Stop by between 11 and 1 to say hi! I'll be showcasing Twist Paper line which will be available for purchase at La Paperie (locally) and stores nationwide

Interior Design-inspired Save the Date : Preppy + Pink + Navy + Green {Cumberland Island, Georgia}

The sweetest bride-to-be EVER contacted me after working with BleuBelle Bridal here in Savannah. She's a wonderful interior designer and owns Mix : Art and Interiors in St. Simons Island, Georgia. She had a swatch of vintage Waverly green/white fabric that she's using for table linens. We used this fabric for inspiration for her save the date while incorporating pink and navy from a table scape she loved. She also wanted to incorporate a monogram/crest of some kind, but was a little hesitant since her initial is B and the groom's is J. You can only imagine why! I love a challenge! I created the logo below which graced the cover of her tri-fold save the date and will be incorporated in her private ceremony invitations and hometown reception invitations. She's also embroidering linens to use at the wedding! We'll also be working on favor tags, hotel room baskets, menu cards and placecard. I think I see a published wedding in the future! Talk about branding outside the box - I love it!

Fabric for inspiration!

She loved this table scape!

Crown-Themed Wedding Invitations in Letterpress { Savannah, Georgia }

I was so excited to work on this wedding invitation with Savannah wedding planner, Tricia Huddas! The couple wanted a sense of royalty for their invitations, so we combined the crown and vintage monogram with their initials. I think they turned out fabulously! Printed on cream 100% cotton Crane paper in Gold Letterpress.

Chandelier-Themed Wedding Invitations in Letterpress { Savannah, Georgia }

Loving the way this order turned out for a sweet couple getting married at the Mansion on Forsyth Park here in Savannah. They had a small wedding of 25 guests and how lucky were the guests to receive this gorgeous letterpress design! Contact me at if you would like to place a similar order!
