Today’s crush (and, boy, is it a cute one) comes to us from Three Little Words, who have been doing much fantastic, custom work recently. These adorable invitations (and coordinating keepsake birth announcement print), custom created for a dear friend, feature folk art-inspired floral elements, charming type, and an oh so cute array of folksy woodland creatures. The sunny palette of reds, oranges, and yellows – with a dash of blue and gray – evokes a warm and cheerful tone, and I just love the custom invitation envelopes, which feature a cutie patootie deer on the front and a folksy bunny on the flap.
Here’s what Emily from Three Little Words has to say about this super sweet project:
This particular suite is really special to me because I designed it for a close childhood friend, Kate, and her husband, George. We actually created their custom wedding suite a couple of years ago, and it’s hard to believe that they already have a little baby! Elinor Claire was born on August 6th at a healthy 9lbs 5oz and is seriously gorgeous and thriving.
The suite was inspired by their nursery color palette, which is light grey with bright tones of salmon pink, tangerine, yellow, and cobalt blue. I also considered the designs and fabric choices that Kate uses when conceiving a theme for her dress brand, Filia, and eventually landed on a floral, folk animal concept. The invitations were flat printed on Crane’s 110# Lettra in Pearl White and paired with multi-colored envelopes from Paper Source, onto which we directly printed coordinating graphics and the addresses. We added a blossom-shaped “registry hang tag” to the back and threaded the ribbon through to embellish the front.
At the shower, Kate and our friend Hannah strung up handmade tissue-paper pom-poms in the same colors, made by the three of us the day before on my parent’s porch in Maine. I gave Kate coordinating Thank You Notes to save her some work later and, after her arrival, created a baby name print for Elinor’s room! A crafty guest also made a lamp inspired by the invitation, so the suite has been carried into the nursery, although Kate’s gorgeous, handmade baby curtains and linens truly are the focal point of the room.
