Fall, Rustic // Janey & David Wedding
earth / tangerine / pewter / moss
Colors change with the seasons and what a better way to incorporate fall’s rich tones than in your wedding day. Natural colors and textures, like the wood grain below, give us falls vibes that make for beautiful photo prints. Janey and David’s wedding was celebrated outdoors at the Los Angeles River Center & Garden.
French, Chic, Vintage // Jasmine’s Birthday in Paris
robin’s egg / nude / peaches / cloud
Jasmine brought the magic of Paris stateside with her themed birthday party. Taking cues from the architectural details in the City of Love, Jasmine’s prints conveyed a mix of sophistication and whimsy perfect for a Sweet 16. The party was held at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim, CA.
Winter, Holidays // Ugly Sweater Party
sky / pine / brick / sand
The holidays are not complete without an Ugly Sweater party, showing off some serious Christmas swag. This theme works just as well for hosting a party at home or attending one at work. Festive prints make a great frame for the season’s fond (and funny) memories.
Paper Culture’s Eco-Friendly Invitations
While browsing on Pinterest (of course), we discovered the unique invitation suite designs of California-based Paper Culture. Their collections are modern, colorful, and better yet, good for the environment. Want your event to be eco-friendly, but still awesome? Start by ordering your invites from Paper Culture; finish with fun in our photo booth, delivered by Electric Vehicle. Read on to see our favorite picks for weddings and more.
These grad invites caught our eye with their modern calligraphy and watercolor pattern. The muted color palette works for any alma mater and any age graduate.
Paper Culture :: weddings
Art museums make great wedding venues and these Save the Date cards are a great start for your creative style. Be bold with different color options.

10.23.2016 // Dylan’s Luau
This 1st birthday party had all the right details for a Hawaiian, surf-themed festivity. Large windows made the event light and bright, setting the stage for dancers and musicians to perform. Sweet Dozen created a yummy doughnut bar and tropical details decorated the tables and walls.
(don’t miss our booth in the corner!)
The host brought the cutest props so guests could pose with pineapples, coconuts, palm trees and flowers. A custom border continued the theme for fun party favors.
October is all about PINK. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight our new friends at Pastel Dress Party, their efforts to fight breast cancer and the beautiful ways you can incorporate pink into your big day. Don’t forget our 5% Promise Program, which runs all year long. #thinkpink #thepinkblog

What matters is your love, and our love of bridesmaids! Pastel Dress Party is based in Toronto, Canada and serves bridesmaids worldwide.

After a wonderful evening of treats, shopping, makeovers and a fashion show, the night wrapped up with a silent auction. The items were graciously donated from all the local vendors and sponsors that participated at the event; which included everything from stunning statement necklaces, wedding photography packages to gift baskets. The event was a great success and all of the proceeds from the auction and the event went to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada!

Shades of Pink
While fall and winter colors are divine, there’s no rule book that says you have to put away the pink! From fuschia to blush, see how Pink Shutter chose our fav pieces.
From Pantone to Pinterest, you can find your heart’s desire by color and Pastel Dress Party makes searching easy with color swatch filters. We chose a romantic combo of magenta, blush and rose gold. Complete your party look with this sequin dress or a versatile skirt, dainty accessories and whimsical decor.
