A Custom Invitation for Bliss Celebrations

Back in May, Jackie Watson from Jacklyn Watson Events reached out to me to collaborate on an exciting project together. She was helping plan and execute a special event taking place at the The Essex Resort & Spa at the end of the month. Bliss Celebrations Magazine was interested in making some new connections in the Vermont area and wanted to throw a networking party using some of Vermont’s great wedding vendors. And, for Jackie to ask me to be a part of it? I was so excited!

Any time I start any project for a client or fellow vendor I always want to know all the in’s and out’s of the event; what is the color palette, the vibe you’re going for, the floral decor, table linens, music, and venue? I find that knowing this information and being able to incorporate it into the invitations makes the finished project so much more meaningful and cohesive with the rest of the event.

It was a tight timeline, but Jackie and I worked closely together to get the project done. We went through a few rounds of design options and revisions. The color palette of soft purples, whites, greys, and greens were pulled from the florals that Jason Munn Design was going to put together for the event. We chose to print on my Signature White Shimmer Paper to give the invitations some sparkle and dimension. Paired with a printed light grey envelope complete with a lilac sprig made the entire look come together.

We were able to stick to the timeline and it all came together beautifully! I was so sad that I could not actually attend the event; I was on a vacation with my husband (worth it!). But, I saw the beautiful shots that Paul Reynolds Photography took and everyone sharing on social media. So, I felt like I was there!
