Lime Centerpieces

I was looking at “wedding porn” on and I saw these lime centerpieces. I added it to my idea file. I love it because it would be easy to recreate and because I love a monochromatic theme. This would be a nice little centerpiece for a dinner party too. I think the quantity of limes is what makes this.

Christian Oth Studio

Rachel found these beautiful photographs from Christian Oth Studio. They are GORGEOUS. I recognized that first photo from the cover of the book Fête.

Emily and Rob’s Wedding Invitations

Here are pictures of the wedding invitations I letterpressed last week. Emily arranged for a babysitter so I would have more uninterrupted time to print. Emily designed them and Paul made some tweaks to the text. The designs were printed as a blind deboss. Which just means you print without ink. The result is a subtle but 3-D design you can actually feel. {Click on photos for better views.}

{I zoinked the photos from Emily’s blog.}


I love this hand lettering. Everything looks yummy in letterpress. I saw this on the wonderful blog Seesaw Designs.
