My family and I were up in Healdsburg this weekend and we stumbled upon Noble Folk – a dessert nirvana for pie and ice cream lovers. Their sweet and simple branding had me at hello, but their super original flavors and combos (rosemary ice cream topped with pistachios and marigolds!) really sealed the deal. We came home with a blueberry and blackberry pie but you can bet that I’m going back for the strawberry balsamic next time.

We’re suckers for great packaging. R+Co’s literally stopped us in our tracks. Hat’s off to the design director Amanda Hall. She worked with over 1000 images in order to find just the right one for each product. We love the super simple, monochromatic logo balanced against the vivid imagery.

This past year we’ve started to incorporate handmade paper into our invitation designs by using them as envelope liners. The texture and patterns make for a fun and surprising pop of color upon opening any party envelope.


My daughter picked “scarlet runners” in her school garden today – my reminder that fabulous colors don’t only exist in a Pantone book.



Joanna Goddard’s blog, A Cup of Jo, is a great place to get lost for a few hours. It’s a one-stop-shop for reading about marriage, motherhood, food, beauty, and design. And it’s real. Ms. Goddard does not sugar coat. She gives it to you straight, and we all need a little straight talk once in awhile! Each post is usually accompanied by some great photography as well, so grab yourself a cup of jo and drink up.

With a modern font and a subtle touch of pink chevron patterns, Lexy and Ari’s invitation popped out of the envelope. The bold yet chic printed pieces translated into a gorgeously clean and sophisticated wedding day design by Event Designer, Stanlee Gatti, and Wedding Planner, Laurie Arons. We love the gray and white combo in the midst of all that greenery!
