Here’s a little fabric inspiration for the weekend! I’m just loving the fresh yet vintage-y feel of this cotton and am so excited for what we’re designing with it. Romantic and elegant with a touch of handmade detailing… I can’t wait until we’re ready to share!
Wishing you a sweet and bubbly Valentine’s Day with lots of hugs and kisses from the ones you love!

I am just so excited for the fabric wedding invitation we’re designing for a wedding in the Trinity Alps next May. From my first conversation with the bride, I knew Elle had the most wonderful inspiration for her rustic, mountain wedding and was very flattered she chose us to help her with her invitations.
As we spoke, she kept bringing up amazing detail after amazing detail—from antique glass jars for her centerpieces, to using wine barrels in the decor, to incorporating driftwood and burlap and other natural and rustic details, and yes, to growing her own flowers! She introduced me to a beautiful bloom, “love in the mist” (can there be a better name for a wedding flower?), that she plans to grow along with some lovely lavender.
In discussing her dream invitation, Elle mentioned that she wanted a soft, muted blue or lavender fabric with a very organic, natural pattern that we would then adorn with natural details like burlap or raffia and maybe even a feather or some lace. I was thrilled to find this amazing fabric for her—perfect color with lacy flower details reminiscent of the delicate blooms she loves—and we’re off and running!
I just LOVE the soft colors of this invitation! After looking through dozens of fabrics, I’m so glad the bride chose this beautiful orange and cream printed cotton by Amy Butler for her wedding invitations.
To balance out the pattern on the fabric, we kept the printed invitation simple and elegant. And the light aqua ink and cardstock are the perfect complement to the soft orange in the fabric–so fresh, effortless, and elegant, this invitation always makes me want to smile.
I introduced this fabric *months* ago in my first ever Fabric Inspiration post:
I still love it as much now as I did then. Actually, I think I love it even more now that it’s inspired me to create a whole new wedding invitation suite!
I really wanted to use the idea of the floral wreath from the fabric to highlight the bride and groom’s names throughout the paper pieces. It sounds silly to say, but I think I love the wreath because it feels like a little graphic hug.
I also love that there’s something sweetly romantic about this suite, making it the perfect invitation for a rustic wine country wedding (especially in the purple!) or a whimsical garden wedding.
