My fantastically talented cousin, Julie, is designing all of my stationery, and she recently sent me some invitation designs. I was floored. They’re gorgeous, and I cannot wait to show you what I chose…but you’ll have to wait until after I send them out! I know, how cruel. In the meantime, I’ll give you some clues, so you have a notion of what they’ll be like.
She combined many of my stationery-related delights, including bold color:
A printed medley of thick and thin lines:
Itty bitty dots:
And a little bunny surprise (LOL—not the kind you’d find in the snow):
Now mash all that together, and you’ll have our invitations!
How far along are you in the invitation process? Are you including any little details that make you swoon?
My sleeping schedule is crazy right now (thanks, Black Friday!). And even though I slept a decent amount over the weekend, it was at weird hours, so I ended up feeling groggy every day. I had that please-let-me-nap-some-more, just-wanna-curl-up-in-bed-and-cuddle, mmmm-feels-so-good-to-close-my-eyes feeling.
If I received this pillow, I’m sure I could never resist that feeling again.
Oh cozy, soft bunny-ness. I want my face on you.
It’s been forever since I checked out Apartment Therapy–AKA my post-college addiction. I’ll probably get re-addicted to the site once we’re married and have an apartment or condo to work on! Until then, I’ll just enjoy their fun finds, like these adorable bunny vases and sculptures:
All from the Etsy shop of prettyrandomobjects
How sweet are the bunnies with little homes? And I love the vases–they’d make the perfect centerpieces for our bunny family dinners.
Every time I find another too-cute-for-words bunny craft, I think to myself, “These would be so cute at the wedding!” Thank goodness I’m too indecisive to actually buy the materials and start making them. Imagine the abundance of homemade hares we’d have in our home right now!
Oh, but these. These are cute. These are wedding-favor-worthy. These are Easter-basket-worthy. These are keep-around-the-house-and toss-at-the-future-husband-when-he’s-not-looking worthy!
Bunny beanbags. Amazing.
Happy Sunday Bunday!
Today feels like a perfect, crisp Autumn day. A good day for warm-colored wedding inspiration! I came across these beautiful details at Project Wedding:
I love finding weddings that feature vibrant colors!
I’ve never seen florals like this! Gorgeous and memorable.
And of course, how cute are their invitations? Have a wonderful week, everyone!
Happy Sunday! I’m blogging from beautiful Florida, where the sun don’t quit! Seriously, it’s way too hot here. Make the sweating (ahem, glowing) stop!
This Sunday Bunday is extra special, because it’s my parents’ 29th wedding anniversary! Happy anniversary to them!
I’ve been fiddling with my parents’ computer all week. When I got here, it took five minutes to open a browser and another five minutes to get from the home page to my email account! Yeow! (That’s my Demi Lovato noise. She has an awesome “Yeow!”) After some debugging and startup-task-deleting, it’s working faster but still not fast enough to be normal. That’s the best this non-computer-geek can do, so I’ll let my brother finish the job when he visits next week!
The biggest downside to their computer being weirdly unfunctional? I cannot upload anything to my blog! Yeow! (Okay, maybe “Boo” would’ve been more appropriate there. I just needed more practice.) Thankfully, writer’s block has struck me more than once, so I have plenty of started-but-not-finished blog entries that I could post. My freshy fresh posts will have to wait till next week!
Until then, enjoy some posts that I meant to post a long time ago.
Happy two year anniversary, Bun!
Adam and I celebrated our anniversary all weekend in Chicago. We did one of my favorite things: walking around in a city, hand in hand! We stopped at our jewelry store, and he unexpectedly found a wedding ring he liked…so he bought it! Then he took me over to Papersource, since I’d been dying to go, and helped me choose a few packs of paper to play around with at home. We nabbed free goodies at a bagel shop that was closing for the night and shopped on the perpetually-crowded Michigan Avenue.
We ended our perfect day with dinner and dessert at Hot Chocolate. Absolutely, amazingly, awe-inspiringly delicious! I would eat dinner there every night this week, if it weren’t for the drive. I did my happy dance after every bite. And of course, their hot chocolate was, mmmm, so good!
All of this celebrating got us reminiscing about our first date:
It was Sweetest Day 2007. I was living in New York; he was here in Naperville. After weeks of phone calls and long emails, I came home to visit my family and see Adam.
We started with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory–one of my favorites. We drove to the Old Town area of Chicago to see a comedy show at the famous Second City. We walked around hand in hand, looking up at skyscrapers and trees lit with pink for Sweetest Day. We drove back to my house and lingered in the car on the driveway. We talked about being old, brownstones, 3-D movies, things that are pink, and things that made us both laugh…
And we were hooked ever since. Two years later, and I still get excited to see him every day. I can’t wait to make him my husband and be his wife. Happy two years, my love!
I used to think there was nothing sweeter than a bunny-shaped cookie, bunny-topped cupcake, or bunny molded chocolate. Well, consider me proven wrong!
Say hello to the sweet and sugar-sprinkled bunny marshmallows! Possibly the sweetest bunny item ever. What’s next—bunny cotton candy? One can only dream!
Sometimes you just feel like making something from your own two hands. Want to craft something simple? Something sweet? Something bunny-ish? Look no further than…pom-pom bunnies!
OMGOSH, so cute. Even the carrots are cute. This is one of those projects that, if I started, I would end up making a million and displaying them on every surface of the house. And below, you can see how to assemble them!
These are from the Easter section of Martha Stewart’s site. I’d love to hide these all over our reception venue for the kids to find!
I am SO EXCITED for a special announcement tomorrow. Until then, I ask: How cute is this bunny stationery?
I would love to have these little note-cards for personal use. And small packs of them would work as favors for the kids attending our wedding! The stationery was created by the talented lady over at A Little Hut.
