Fabric Inspiration : Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!! Here’s a sweet little fabric I came across lately that I think would make for such a lovely pink and gray invitation.

Fabric Inspiration : A Bali Wedding

I’m so excited to share a little peek at the invitation we’ve been working on in the studio this week!

This worldly couple currently lives in Hong Kong and is planning an amazing cliffside sunset wedding in Bali. She’s Korean American, he’s Chinese Singaporean, and their guests will be flying in from all over the world! In speaking with our bride, it was clear she was drawn to the deep blues and greens of the ocean and that she wanted their invitations to reflect either a little bit of their Asian heritage or a little bit of Bali–without being clichéd in any way. She and her fiancé both love clean, contemporary design and were initially drawn to our [Viceroy invite](http://www.bluemagpieinvitations.com/gallery/the-viceroy.html).

It sounds like a lot to incorporate into one invitation, but I just LOVE designing for couples who really want their invites to reflect themselves and their upcoming event…and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to find this beautiful Asian-inspired fabric!

The deep blue, teal, and gold make me think of sun-kissed ocean waves, and the subtle metallic outlines bring a level of tradition and sophistication to an otherwise modern-looking fabric. From there, we decided to bring in the hydrangeas that will be used throughout her event for her printed pieces–but with a slight Balinese wood carving twist–and we were off and running!

Coming soon…the actual invitations!

Swatch Collage : Baby Fabrics…for Me!

Hello blog! It’s been months since I last posted, which just means there’s a healthy backlog of beautiful fabrics, custom invitations, and fun news to share in the coming weeks.

The first big piece of news is that in about three months, I will be a mommy! Yup, we are finally joining the world of happy parents out there, which is huge and very exciting.

And of course, me being me, what am I really excited about right now? Picking out fabrics for the baby room! I’ve been browsing tons of beautiful nursery inspirations, numerous huggable fabrics, yummy color palettes, and this is what I’ve landed on…at least for now.

Though I will be taking some time off with the new baby, we do still have limited availability to work on a couple more custom designs before I turn into a pumpkin toward the end of April…so definitely let me know if you’ve been eyeing some fabric invitations for your upcoming event!
