Fabric Inspiration : Glamp Wedding

Labor Day always feels like an unofficial transition from summer to fall for me…the end of summer camps, the start of school. For those of you who love the outdoors, a glamp-themed wedding might be just the thing for you!

I’m just LOVING all the glamping inspired weddings right now…set in nature, channelling the sweet nostalgia of childhood summer camps, but dressed up and polished, creating a wedding that is both down to earth and elegant.

I hope you all get a chance to get out and enjoy this beautiful long weekend!

Fabric Inspiration : Happy Modern Mint Stripes

Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s a quick little fabric wedding invitation inspiration.

I just love this fabric for all of its carefree happiness. The beautiful minty color, the squiggly stripes…it’s pretty and elegant and modern and happy all rolled into one! And it would pair so well with so many colors: peachy pinks for a light springtime feel, lemony yellows for a sunny summertime bash, orangey reds for a bright fall wedding, or silvery grays for a lovely winter wonderland!

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!
