New York Chocolate Show

I can't wait to attend New York's Chocolate Show this weekend. I don't think it's going to be as over the top as Paris's Salon du Chocolat (as deliciously documented by Paris Breakfast), but I hope to discover some new producers/chocolates I haven't tasted before and get some new ideas for favor packaging and display.

Visit the Chocolate Show's website (www.chocolateshow.com) for show details and tickets.

J.Crew Weddings Moves Downtown

I'm so glad J.Crew is finally expanding the number of locations where brides can see the weddings and parties collection in person - and now you don't even have to go uptown! I like that they used an illustration in this email blast as opposed to a photograph - it's a refreshing change of pace from the usual glossy (albeit charming) photo and has a nice vintage feel.

Special Delivery

Hooray! At last, my very own copy of FLAIR Annual has arrived!

Look at this fantastic hand lettering on the bird's tail! I can't wait to see what other visual delights are inside...

So, it's been a while...

It's been so long, I hardly know where to begin! Let's start with a recent wedding project for Blue Ribbon. This was so much fun to work on; this suite included everything from the basic invitation set to ceremony programs and favor packaging, all done in a soft and feminine lilac & lavender colorway.

The prettiest favor box

Petite program booklets with a fitting quote chosen by the bride for the back cover

And last but not least, the thank you notes
