The florists are trained to design these piece with a unique and beautiful twist. Their style is modern and European which is a fresh combination that makes every centerpiece wonderful. 

Digho is a big fan of Floras Avenue. Whenever a flower gift comes to mind we run right to them. 

We have the please of housing some of our seasonal greeting cards with them. Definitely pick up a card with your new arrangement! 

With mother's day around the conner keep them in mind for colorful arrangements in all sizes.

A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015

No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.

This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.

Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.

Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.

To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.


A Hint of Pink Peeking Out of Our Custom Invitation Sleeve.... February 02 2015

This couple was a pleasure to work with... They gave use their vision and loved everything we could do for them. The idea of a custom sleeve that would have the invitation peek through was a favorite for both the bride and groom the minute we sat down. The love of pink and gray allowed us to capture both individuals with a beautiful elegance. The design ideas started with a modern monogram and then the addition of ornate designs gave the invitation an element to highlight the information. Above you can see the invitation outside and inside the sleeve. Behind the sleeve is the envelope. Along with the invitation, the sleeve held the hotel information, direction card and the response card.

The simple elegant design was then used to create a complete package as the pieces created their entire wedding brand.  Above you can see the seating card design, stickers for champagne bottle and cookie box favors,  a thank you poster that was on display throughout the venue and the front and inside of the ceremony program. 

It is always an exciting journey with a bride and groom when they come to us for advice and creative ideas.  Together we shape a look and then create an array of printed pieces that speak to them as well as their vision of their big day.  The result is always so satisfying for us and gives the couple a sense of pride of all the components presented.


Oui Oui!!! A French Bridal Shower!! January 06 2015

There is no other way to shower a bride that loves Paris then to bring her chocolates and decorate everything in pink!!! This shower invitation was done with a light introduction of Parisian style leaving the event full of the Eiffel Tower and flower buds everywhere. The mother of the bride wanted to do something special with a very feminine feel. Her daughter loved pink and Paris. The invitation was full of hot pink and soft pinks with a base of gold. Each additional piece (Direction card, Recipe card and Advice card) all had elements of design to link them together.

The table number were Paris locations and the escort cards sat on an Eiffel Tower!

The favors were handmade soaps (alegnasoap.com) and wrapped in white tulle with a touch of pink ribbon.

This event had many different ways to keep the invitation design in all the elements needed. It created an very soft Parisian environment that complimented the bride!!

Thank you cards, movie game cards, soap labels and escort cards are shown above in detail.


Our bundle of joy September 25 2014

It feels like everyone we know including one of our own is expecting a bundle of joy! Working with couples during their wedding planning is always awesome, but when we find out that they are expecting, it’s pure excitement! Watching a couple turn into a family is a beautiful thing and we are lucky we get to experience that.

When a bundle comes into our lives and brings us love and joy, the first thing we want to do is show the world!! There is no better way to show off your beautiful new baby than with a completely unique and custom announcement. They are wonderful to send and exciting to receive.

Above you can see many different styles and shapes of baby announcements. We specialize in using a real photo that we place on layered paper to give the baby image the recipient’s complete attention.

We can make announcements with 1 through 5 layers, having colors and designs going throughout the layers. Shapes are usually square or rectangle. Themes and typography usually go hand in hand to compliment the family style.

Also, in the photo above are envelopes with a single layer of paper that allows the announcement design to peek out of the front of the envelope.


Cruising through a Bar Mitzvah invitation September 25 2014

This week we would like to step away from weddings and show you some other events that we brand. They can range from a Baptism, gala, Bar Mitzvah or grand opening. Depending on how large the guest list is or the budget, branding is event available in many different styles.
When we met with Sam and his mother to start creating a logo for his Bar Mitzvah, he had a drawing ready for us to run with. His vision was to create a car emblem with his initials. The party was to have the style and feel of exotic cars. The logo/emblem that was made for him stayed throughout the entire event.
As you can see below in his Save the Date announcement. The logo is simple and worked as a preview to the the full emblem. This Save the Date was on black cover stock and all the copy was done with a silver foil, giving the true effect of metal.

When discussing the invitations, the details were very important. There was a custom liner to match the exotic car interiors, the stamps were custom made to match the logo and the addresses were in a circle to match the logo emblem. The invite was a large square with 3 layers and a pocket on the back.

The pocket had the direction and accommodation card (below), along with the response card and envelope.

The logo was later used for all the favors and props that were included in decorating the event. Below you will see keychain, yamaka, and t-shirt.

The keychain was attached to the escort card for each guest.

Later the thank you card had the same style and feel as the rest of the event.

This event was tons of fun for us to do. We loved the excitement the family had about the logo and putting it on everything. Later the photographer was able to place the logo on the cover of the album. Sam was very happy and loved everything.
