Custom Monogrammed Stationery

Last month, one of my fabulously creative friends asked me to create stationery for her mom and two sisters. It wasn’t something I’d done before, but I was so inspired by her ideas and couldn’t wait to get started.

Kathryn (a classy Southern girl) asked for monograms in calligraphy. So perfect. I did some research and we decided on colorful monogrammed note cards and notepads. But after we got started, she came up with a brilliant addition: custom rubber stamps so their charming little monograms can be pressed wherever they wish. Adorable!

I adore how they turned out. I can’t wait to make and gift a few of my own… and perhaps make one for myself as well! :)

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

Stamped with Love

Looking for a way to customize your next event? Using rubber stamps to personalize a party is both brilliant and affordable. Stamps are very versatile; you can choose from a variety of styles and colors to create the perfect combination for your party’s theme.

Below are a few pictures of how I incorporated an ‘S’ motif throughout my own wedding using a custom stamp. I am so thankful that my coordinator, Kelly from Eventology Weddings, gave me this genius idea!

The stamp was so easy to use. Before I knew it I had covered everything from thank you notes, cocktail napkins and kraft paper cones for our rose petal send-off. Even though the touches were small, I loved that our guests were able to hold something that was handmade by me.

The custom ‘S’ motif was designed by the incredibly talented Lindsay Letters. The actual rubber stamp was made by babyjewels on etsy.
