Perfectly Peacock Wedding Inspiration

Wow, I can't believe that Christmas is over and the new year has begun!   I can't thank my customers enough for such a wonderful 2011 at Tiger Lily Invitations! From birth announcements, to birthday party invitations to wedding programs, each project was so much fun to work on. I am looking forward to a fabulous 2012 filled with celebrations and joy, for both my customers and myself! 

This is always such an exciting time in the invitation business, filled with bridal fairs and appointments with newly engaged couples, new trend predictions and party planning.  To kick off the new year, I have chosen to highlight one of my favorite color schemes and a continuing popular wedding theme - peacock.  I just love the teals, aquas, purples and royal blues this theme brings together.  You can be subtle, featuring just a few peacock accents, or go all out.  If you are planning a perfectly peacock wedding, here are some beautiful ideas.  Of course, the invitations and reception accessories are all available from Tiger Lily Invitations.  Click below the photo for more information about each product featured.

In the News

I am super excited to say that Tiger Lily Invitations was recently featured in two great publications, Stationery Trends Magazine and Soirees Southern Events.  I was so honored that one of my invitations was featured in the Summer 2011 issue of Stationery Trends.  It is the magazine that I look to for upcoming trends and have been a subscriber since I began selling and designing invitations.  I was also happy that one of my custom invitations designed for the beautiful and talented photographer, Abbie Carter Franklin, of Carter Elite Photography was featured in the Fall 2011 local bridal magazine, Soirees Southern Events.  Stationery Trends is a subscription only magazine, but you can find Soirees Southern Events in wedding venues around Northeast Georgia and online.  If you are planning a wedding, it is a great local resource.  Below are the two featured invitations.

Pretty Pansies for an Early Spring Wedding

Wow, it has been a busy couple of months!  I am glad I finally managed to squeeze in a short blog post.  First off, lets just say I am obsessed with Pinterest.  If you haven't checked it out, it is a great site for ideas.  I am constantly searching through the Pinterest site and the web for photos and ideas for parties and weddings that match my invitations and inspire me to create more.  The collage below is an example of photos I have "pinned" to one of my boards.  To check out more of my pins or to become a follower on Pinterest click on the follow me button below or on the right.Follow Me on Pinterest

Violets and pansies add delicate and natural features to a winter or early spring wedding or party
When I designed the Violet Vintage Botanical Wedding Invitation, I loved the simple and natural feel of the featured floral design mixed with the elegant and delicate text.  Printed on thick luxurious cotton paper makes it extra sweet.  Violets and pansies make a perfect addition to a vintage or rustic wedding.  From shortbread cookies, to favors, to the bouquet, these versatile flowers can be used in so many creative ways.  For more info on how you can create this natural look for your event click on the follow me on Pinterest button for links to each photo above or click on the links below.

Sweet Summer Party Idea - A Watermelon Birthday

I just love the idea of having a watermelon themed birthday party. Not only is it unique, but the mix of pinks and greens is super cute! Here are some ideas to make your summer party extra fun! You could go with a unique watermelon cake and add a scoop of ice cream to stay cool on a hot summer day or you could carve a watermelon into cute and creative shapes and fill with assorted fruits. I created cupcake toppers for this invitation set, but they can also be attached to tooth picks and used in watermelon and fruit wedges as an alternative to cupcakes. Instead of soft drinks, serve watermelon coolers, smoothies or kool-aid and add a little mint leaf to the top. I would definitely recommend taking this party outdoors and having a picnic party, with gingham table clothes and spread blankets on the ground for the kids. Of course there are hundreds of adorable watermelon dresses and bows available for the birthday girl. I had a difficult time picking just one to feature in this collage. 

Ready to start planning a Watermelon party for your birthday girl?
