A little look at our invitations! Being a lover of paper goods, I admit that this was one of the hardest things for me to make a decision about. There are just so many wonderful ideas out there. In the end, I decided to stick with something very simple and traditional ~ letterpress invitations by William Arthur (printed in Kennebunk, Maine).
I did have a little fun with the reply cards, which are from Cavallini & Co. Each postcard has a different bird! I simply printed the return address in the same font and color as the invitation, leaving space for each guest to write their own response. We have really enjoyed seeing what people come up with ~ they say the most wonderful things!
Then to trim it all out, I scoured eBay for vintage stamps. Of course, I had to have the 1982 Love stamp designed by Mary Faulconer, and to carry on the bird motif, a 5-cent Audubon stamp. The calligraphy was done by the amazingly talented Kathryn Murray (you can see some more of her work over here).
Are you beginning to sense a theme?
A few more bits next week. Until then, enjoy this last official weekend of summer!
