Winter Wonderland Cupcake Kits

These adorable winter wonderland cupcake kits are one of the sweetest things I’ve seen of late. They would be so cute for a holiday party and perfect for getting the kids involved! The tiny miniature reindeer just make me smile and the flags on top are just the icing on the cake. Check them out at Bakelab.

Same Day Edit Wedding Video from Ambient Sky

Last week I shared the lovely Inspired Creations video that Ambient Sky Couture Imagery put together and today I am really excited to share this sweet same day edit wedding video with you from Alla and Flavius’s wedding. I still maintain that investing in high quality wedding videography (from Clark + Walker Studio in our case) was the best money that my husband and I spent on our wedding and Ambient Sky’s work more than lives up to that hype. Their videography is emotional and modern, sure to live in the family video archives for decades to come.

A huge thank you to Scott and Amanda for sharing this with us! (RSS subscribers, please click over to watch the video!)


Fresh Branding from Swiss Cottage Designs

I love these cool, colorful business identity designs from Swiss Cottage Designs for Fresh, a culinary design firm. I enjoy designs like this that are simple and clean, finished with vibrant color and details like a great striped backing on the letterhead and a colored envelope to pull the look together. Sometimes it really is the extra little details that make all the difference and I love how Courtney has considered Fresh’s own approach to design and worked to convey that through these fun, bright stationery pieces.

Thanksgiving Printables

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just a week away! To get your holiday planning started right, I’m happy to have the loveliest Thanksgiving downloads for you today, designed by Laura Macchia. Thinking about fun Thanksgiving entertaining ideas, we created a thank you card, little tent cards perfect as buffet signage or as place cards, and labels for sending leftovers home with family and friends. I printed the cards on bright white, 110# stock and used a bone folder to fold them. The labels were printed on label paper and I used a circle cutter to cut them out. Grab a stack of kraft paper bakery boxes with wax paper for guests to fill up with yummy treats and give them cute labels so they can label each box with what’s inside. Get the pies in the oven and you’re set to go!









Download your Thanksgiving thank you cards | Thanksgiving labels | and tent cards – and happy Thanksgiving!

A Scarf on a Spool

Just in time for the upcoming holiday seasons, check out these pretty plaid wool scarves on a spool at terrain. At 82″ long, I could find lots of lovely, unexpected ways to use these in my holiday decor. Looped along a stairway as a garland or even wrapped around a tree, they’d lend a warm touch to your holiday home. Or just use them as a cozy, oversized scarf to stay warm on cold winter days. Either way, I’m in love.
