All You Need is Love

Posted on February 08, 2016 by Jennifer R | 0 comments

All you need is love... and snail mail to spread it around! Beth has been sending out Valentine's Day cards for over ten years. While her family loves receiving traditional holiday cards, there is so much going on during that time of year, she finds it easier to send Valentine wishes every February. Not only does Beth appreciate the message of love and friendship, but she likes to send playful cards during the dreary winter months. They are such a big hit with friends and family that Beth has even started receiving Valentine's Day cards from other families in recent years.

This year Beth knew she wanted to highlight a picture of her three children on the front, incorporate a heart and use metallic gold ink to make it feel extra special. Our in-house designer quickly thought of the well known Beatles song and got to work! We love the cheerfulness of the oversized text and bright colors, especially the glitter liner. Sure, some might find Valentine's Day a little mushy or cheesy, but that's what makes them fun!

Holiday Wishes from the Mr. & Mrs.

Posted on December 21, 2015 by Jennifer R | 0 comments

It was such a pleasure working with Kelly and Luke on these holiday themed save the dates. Luke proposed to Kelly in early September, on what the bride-to-be thought was just another normal Monday night! Shortly after, they settled on a date and place for their wedding: Labor Day Weekend 2016 at Camp Canadensis in Pennsylvania. They wanted to send them out over the holidays, so we incorporated festive greens, whites, and pops of red for their color palette. Our in-house designer created a drawing of a log cabin nestled between trees and stars to allude to the wedding location, as their guests will be staying on the campgrounds for the weekend. Kelly was thrilled with the way their save the dates turned out and we personally can't wait to see what this fun-loving couple will do for their invitations!

Out & About with ASW: Octoberfest

Posted on November 02, 2015 by Katie R | 0 comments

Whether you're stopping by a local street fair or hosting your own get together, fall isn't complete without an Octoberfest celebration. And no one does it better than our friend Megan at Sparkles & Sprinkles! We were delighted to help Megan assemble some party decor for her Octoberfest beer tasting party and we couldn't wait to show off the fabulous results. Custom cocktail napkins got an extra punch of personality with gold foil "beer me" and made a perfect resting place for the fall themed brews. Our talented in house designer created a tasting card for guests to score each beverage and a welcome sign pretty enough to frame! For a complete look at Megan's event plus more creative autumn decor check out her full blog post here

Falling for Autumn's Scents

Posted on October 05, 2015 by Katie R | 0 comments

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." - L.M. Montogmery

We couldn't agree more, so to celebrate the new season, we've rounded up all of our autumn must haves. Skip the pumpkin patch and keep all the outdoor scents by lighting a Pumpkin Peppercorn or Woodfire candle from Illume. Both scents will have you racing to roast marshmallows over an open fire. And no home is cool-weather ready without Nest's Pumpkin Chai hand soap and reed diffuser. Bring on the sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice lattes- we're ready!
