Vintage Lace Wedding Invitations Haute off the Press

vintage lace wedding invitation by delphineI’m so pleased to introduce a brand NEW design: Vintage Lace. It was inspired by a stunning piece of heirloom lace that Trish brought in as a photo shoot prop. The lace dates back to the late 1800s! Everyone in the studio just fell in love with the gorgeous lace pattern and all of the designers here at Delphine thought it would make a beautiful wedding invitation. It’s shown here flat printed, but how stunning would it be letterpressed?

Boiled Peanuts | A Classic Color Palette

color palette boiled peanuts brown red green via delphineOne of the many joys of being back in the South is access to one of my favorite snacks: boiled peanuts. Pair it with a cane sugar Coke and I’m a very happy girl. I snapped this pic at Butcher & Bee the other day because I just loved the traditional color palette: coca cola red, peanut brown, a bit of green: an old school classic color palette that would be a great jumping off point for planning a fall party.

San Rafael | Font Geek

San Rafael Font Love via DelphineCrystal Kluge has done it again! Another perfectly charming font. The San Rafael font is sorta girly, sweet, and on the casual side, but still sophisticated enough for a wedding invitation. I think it would be particularly fun for an autumn apple picking party invitation.

Summer Peach and Turquoise | Color Palette

Peach Nectarine Mint and Turquoise Color Palette by DelphineThe other day my son and I had a summer snack of local South Carolina peaches and nectarines still warm from the sun, with homemade biscuits fresh from the oven. Yummy.

I couldn’t help but to snap a picture. The pretty combo of the sun faded orange, turquoise and green colors together made me smile.

Neighborhood S’mores Party

S'mores Party Invitation

S'mores Party Napkins

S'mores Party marshmallow on fire

S'mores Family Erika Firm John ArquetteS'mores Party FireA few weeks ago, just before school started, John and I invited the neighborhood kids (and their parents) over for a S’mores Party. It was a hot sticky mess, but also a ridiculous amount of fun.

I designed fun brown and white S’mores party invitations, as well as a few party accessories like brown cocktail napkins, but that’s as fancy as it got — overall the party was super low key. My dad made brats and we had a wagon full of beer, the kids ran around the yard playing tag, and patiently waited for dark so we could make s’mores. One of our neighbors brought over homemade marshmallows drizzled with caramel (we ate most of them before the fire was hot!).

Some s’mores party tips: 1. Buy cheap wood dowels at the hardware store for disposable s’mores sticks.   2. Keep a box of wet wipes nearby to help little ones get “unsticky.”   3. Put each ingredient in its own big jar with wide mouth, for easy access.   4. If you want to try something a little fancy: replace the Hershey’s bar with a Reese’s Cup. Trust me on this one.
