Fabric Details : Bow Ties

We clearly love our fabric here at Blue Magpie and we also love all things wedding, so here’s another set of ideas for incorporating beautiful fabrics into your wedding celebration: bow ties!

Of course, the first thought that comes to mind is to outfit your groom and groomsmen.

Fabric Inspiration : Fourth of July Wedding

Here is a little fabric inspiration for the bride who dreams of an all-American wedding. Imagine all of the classic American details that would be perfect for a Fourth of July wedding: mini grilled cheese sandwiches, root beer floats, patriotic pinwheels, and of course, sparklers!

Star-Themed Blue Linen Baby Announcement

I love it when clients become friends, and I just heard from a past bride that she’s expecting her second child soon and would like us to help her with her birth announcements!

This made me realize that I’ve been quite bad at sharing the work we’ve done for our tiniest clients, so here is a bright blue linen birth announcement we made for the darlingest little baby boy with a star-themed nursery!

The “It’s a boy!” tag is wrapped around the linen sleeve with baker’s twine, and the printed announcement card slides in and out from an opening the right.
