Rustic Bridal Shower... Yes Please!!


We always love a challenge, and being someone who loves the outdoors, I always love it when I get to create something earthy and organic with an elegant flair. Our client, Jennifer, came to us because she said our designs were the most creative she found out there!! We love to hear that, and love her for the wonderful compliment! (and she was just amazing to work with) Jennifer is also the best friend of Mother of the Bride. She has know the bride her whole life, and wants to host the shower of the bride's dreams. She explained to me, that the theme was rustic, natural and organic and she wanted something unique and earthy that would WOW the guests and still have an elegant flair!

My inspiration started with materials. What could i use that was earthy and different, and would still be elegant enough for a bridal shower. I started brainstorming and decided mixing metallic and linen paper with some rough texture would do the trick.. Enter... Muslin!! 

The invitation came in hand stamped Muslin Bag, and mailed in a Brown Kraft Envelope. We had a custom rubber stamp made, with the graphic and then hand stamped the muslin bags with brown ink.  Client loved the Muslin Bags so much, she purchased extras to use them as favor bags during the event!

 Project was printed on Ivory Linen, and is closed with a chocolate brown satin ribbon belly band with a champagne metallic accent piece. The contrast of Muslin, Metallic and Linen papers, and satin ribbon really created a unique rustic and stylish feeling. 

Love this pattern detail on this linen paper. The texture, just makes you want to touch it!  Anyone who follows me, or knows me, will tell you. "I have a paper problem!" I love a nice tactile piece of paper or texture!
