Pin of the Week | Guac T-Shirt

i know that guacamole is extra t-shirt pin of the week via DelphineI know that guacamole is extra … and yes, I still want salsa.

This week’s Pin of the Week makes me miss SoCal taco shops. Here in SC I have to remind delivery guy to include salsa. I mean, who delivers chips with no salsa? As my friend Katie G. says, “respect the ‘-n-’ people!”

Bryson’s Garage | Retro Color Palette

Brysons Garage Color Palette James Island South Carolina by DelphineEvery time I drive by this darling garage I slow down to admire its hand painted sign. The other day the cars that are normally parked in front were gone, and I was able to see the sweet red flowers that someone planted to match the logo and red door. Branding at its finest.

Wedding Inspiration: Feather Bow Ties

Feather Bow Ties Wedding Inspiration via DelphineCharleson locals Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner of Brackish Bow Ties are redefining the traditional bow tie and have launched an awesome new trend: bow ties made from real feathers. The cool thing about feather bow ties is that no two are alike, since no two birds are alike. They’re an awesome look for groomsmen … in fact the whole thing started when Ben fashioned a turkey feather bow tie as a gift for his groomsman, Jeff. We’re obsessed!

Tiffany and Taylor Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations

custom tiffany letterpress wedding invitationsIt was such a pleasure to work with Tiffany to create a custom letterpress wedding invitation suite for her Lowcountry wedding. We modified our Robin design, enlisted the help of the talented Paige Tanenbaum for custom calligraphy, and letterpressed this beauty in lilac and gold inks on exquisite quartz shimmer paper.

I’m always a sucker for party goodies, and so is Tiffany! So we printed up some lovely cocktail napkins for her reception. We repeated the Robin pattern and foil stamped lilac napkins with sparkly silver foil, to pick up the candlelight shimmering through mercury glass. I cannot wait to see photos of Tiffany & Taylor’s special day!
