Deck “Their” Halls Shower Invite

I wanted to share another little project I was able to work on with a sweet friend. Sarah hosted a couples shower this past weekend, and I can’t think of a better theme!

‘Stock the Bar’ Couples Shower Invite

When it comes to wedding showers, couples showers are my favorite. So earlier this fall, when Bobby and I were invited to help two good friends “stock the bar”, how could I say no?

I was even more excited when the host, my lovely friend Jenny, asked me to design invitations for the party. Knowing the bride’s favorite color is turquoise, I found inspiration in the slanted stripes on a roll of teal washi tape. The final invite design was modern yet playful; a perfect match to the party’s setting at a chic lounge in downtown Dallas.

Meagan and Marcus were married this past weekend. It was a fantastic celebration filled with many laughs and even better dance moves. Much love and congrats to the happy couple!

XO, Mariel

Kate Spade-Inspired Invites

Kate Spade - Inspired Bachelorette Party Invitations via One Charming Life

Last month, eight friends traveled to the Texas hill country to celebrate something really special… Our friend Tiffany’s final days as a bachelorette! The weekend was a hit — we floated the river, dined at the Gristmill and danced at the famous Gruene Hall.  It’s a weekend I’ll never forget, and because of that I wanted to share a piece of it with you.

A couple of months ago, I was discussing wedding day details with Tiffany, the bride-to-be. When she mentioned that she had just bought her wedding shoes from Kate Spade, a light bulb popped up in my head. I thought, “I love Kate Spade’s style; what fun inspiration for a Bachelorette party!”

It was about time to start designing the invitations for Tiffany’s final fling, and right then I knew Kate Spade would be the perfect muse. I had so much fun creating these, and I hope you enjoy them too! Here’s the final product…
