The weeks really fly. I can't believe it's almost April (I mean, everyone says that, but it's true!) and soon all the summer weddings will be here. This week, we put the finishing touches on our dual language, German and English invite, and we're really trying something so old it's new- I can't wait to share it with you. In fact, this year's custom invites are more interesting than ever before, and I know it's due to my amazingly creative, savvy clients. The custom invitation process really sings when it is a true collaboration between creator and client, and I've been lucky to get to work with THE BEST people so far this year. Case in Point: This completely over-the-top glam shower at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago (formerly the Elysian). Pistil and Vine not only created the gorgeous floral and table decor. Megan also seamlessly orchestrated the entire event, planning it down to every last detail, from the AMAZING sweets table - I mean, a 3 foot tower of pastel macarons, come on! - to the french soap favors, to the white linen runner, to the whisper peach menus and pearl-wrapped invitations we designed with champagne tissue liner, beautifully calligraphed by Stacey Shapiro.
