the other love of my life, my invites

Now that the invites are out and RSVP's are streaming in, I can share the beautiful design from Margot of Atelier Isabey with my internet friends.

It KILLS me to blot part of that out.

Hello, Maisy! What a good girl.

I absolutely love them. I asked for vintage garden and Margot nailed it perfectly. We were even able to include a few very personal touches, such as the chandelier to match those hanging in Cafe Brauer and my little Maisy on the RSVP card.

Although I had (thank God) decided against making my own invites, I still had to sneak in a few handmade touches.

My mom, sister and I made the little fabric pockets to use as the inner envelope. My original plan was to buy muslin and stamp a monogram on the back, peeking out when you opened the outer envelope. When looking for muslin, my mom and I found this fabric at JoAnn's and thought it was perfect. We scrapped the stamp, but I might save that for a future party.

Jake made these sweet little map cards. He matched the colors perfectly with our invites.

And the calligraphy.

Please ignore the little smudge.

What a relief to have that all complete!
