Arizona Cactus Cocktail Napkins and Stir Sticks | Haute off the Press

arizona cactus custom cocktail napkins and stir sticks in green and goldArizona Cactus has always been one of my favorite Delphine designs. I love the Saguaro Cactus and Prickly Pear Cactus illustrations my mom drew for us. Custom cocktail napkins and stir sticks are such a fun way to brighten up a bar, don’t you think? Much nicer than the boring white napkins and tiny black coffee stirrers that most catering companies provide, right?

Search for the Perfect Little White Dress

5 little white dresses for fallI’ve been invited to a wedding industry party with a “wear something white” dress code. Thus, my search for the perfect little WHITE dress. I need something that works for fall, must be comfortable, not too short, preferably with shoulders covered (I get chilly). And it has to be fashionable enough for the Big Apple. So far I’ve rounded up five little white dresses:

1. White dress with black embroidered bodice from Anthropologie  2. White belted tank dress from J. Crew   3. White long sleeve lace dress from Banana Republic  4. White and taupe striped long sleeve shift dress from H&M   5. White cap sleeve lace cocktail dress from H&M.

Fancy script or simple sans serif?

Font Geek Moment: Bombshell

Bombshell Pro font by Emily Lime Foundry Emily Lime’s newest release, Bombshell, is oh so pretty. It has lots of glyphs and special characters, so it truly does look like hand calligraphy, imperfections and all. The second I saw it I snatched it up for the Delphine library.
