Invite Out of Hiding

I think everyone has received their invitations so I can finally show you all the invitation that I made for my friend Sarah's bridal brunch. I'm hosting it along with the other bridesmaids (Veronica and Amanda) the day before Sarah and George's wedding Labor Day weekend.

I knew I wanted the invite to be silver, white, and teal because those are the colors I'll be using for the brunch table, but I couldn't come up with a design I liked. Eventually I came up with this design and I'm really pleased with it. There were only 15 invites to make so hand-cutting the silhouettes wasn't that bad. Luckily, I convinced Geoff and Logan to play bluegrass while I cut. Then I just tied a ribbon around it and attached the silhouette with foam tape to give it some dimension. I've been working on all sorts of crafty projects for the shower and I promise a full report as soon as I get back from the wedding. Full disclosure, I've been outsourcing some of the crafts to my mom. She's a terrible negotiator, she works for peanuts - just out of love for her daughter and a compulsive need to keep herself occupied (now you know where I got it).


  1. Wow, that is amazing! Very creative and absolutely gorgeous!!

  2. I loved the invite! Mike even commented on it when he saw it on the counter! Excellent job! I picked an amazing maid of honor! (that's right, folks! Ellie is maid of honor-ing for TWO weddings simultaneously! Fortunately you really don't need to do anything for mine until after Sarah's!)

  3. I may have already started planning for yours, though, V. ;)
