My Little Toy Town

This is my little village ‘Mossley’ which was taken by whilst walking home from a lovely Thai meal and drinkies with my boyfriend a few Sunday’s ago.

I’ve only just looked at it (so busy with work) but it’s so warm and cute i just had to post it. It reminds me of a little toy town. I thought that when I first moved to Mossley but this picture encapsulates it beautifully. Quaint.

We’ve been gorging on sweeties in the Made With Love office this week. We’ve had 2 orders on the go using real sweets so there was an excuse for pots of sweeties everywhere. Having just finished on a sweetie wedding table names for our lovely client Charlotte (who got in touch with us 6 weeks ago to see whether we could help with her wedding in 6 weeks time… she’s managed to organise her whole wedding in just 6 weeks – it’s been madness but she’s done it & is getting wed this Sunday 22nd November 2009)
This is the finished result. Charlotte had originally ordered her stationery from the ‘Moderno’ Collection in a fuchsia pink colour scheme. When she told us that her table names were based on sweets we just couldn’t resist having a play around with the design. Such fun to be had… our creative juices were literally flowing. Upon design of her proofs we had a little bit of fun with the sweeteis version above just to see what she thought. Charlotte loved them and these little pretties will be sitting on her tables this Sunday.

And our gorgeous new lollipop birthday party invitations £3.50 have just been photographed and are very sweet indeed. I wanted to photograph these with grass and daisies but since we’ve been having such appalling weather will have to put this on hold until the summer.

Christmas is well & truly on it’s way. If your stuck for gift ideas do check out the new’s Christmas Gift Guide catalogue for inspiration. You can get a free copy here. This is their best ever catalogue & is filled to the brim with inspiration, gift ideas and gorgeous styling (all from small businesses that offer some of the most beautiful hard-to-find things that are most definitely not on the high street). I mentioned in a previous post that Made With Love (me) is featured in there with our Christmas Card collection ‘Christmas Holly’ (at the bottom).

Well here we are… & aren’t they pretty?

As a stationery designer, I very much keep my eye on trends that are big in the US. From fashion to interiors, they eventually filter down to event planning & design to which I like to be on trend with. These have been around for a while in the US and are making an appearance on the UK wedding scene. Candy bars or sweetie bars are a ‘sweet’ idea to have at your wedding reception for guests to help themselves. I couldn’t resist these candy bar images below. All images from Amy Atlas

I am working on some sweetie themed stationery for a client at the moment which I’ll get around to posting about soon.

This is Adrian & Sean’s Guest Book. A custom colour scheme to suit their wedding colours personalised from the ‘Dazzle’ Collection. I had designed their wedding stationery earlier in the year in this fabulous colour scheme & they had later returned to order a guest book. I love designing guest books and they always look so spectacular once they are finished. I received an email the other week from Adrian (which scared me for the first 5 lines but then brought a huge smile to my face) saying: Ahhh isn’t that lovely!

Adrian & Sean are getting wed on the 7th November 2009 (sorry there’s a typo in the above) & will be using their guest book during the reception to treasure their memories forever. Just lovely.

We will be thinking of you this weekend. Have the most amazing day!

We have been asked by a client to develop a simple invitation for their ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ wedding theme. What a fabulous wedding theme to have. I was so excited about the possibilities that I couldn’t sleep the night before the design!

We have taken the Tiffany blue Colour scheme (which is actually more of an aqua shade) with a stylish black pop art effect image of the leading lady Audrey Hepburn. The design looks timeless in the flesh.

I can’t tell you how good this design looks. It’s simply stunning & would work perfectly for a movie star wedding theme (with different movie stars); A Breakfast At Tiffany’s wedding theme; Hollywood Wedding theme.

If you like this collection please get in touch as it is completely bespoke and so not available on our website.
You could have any colour ribbon which would work well against the monochrome backdrop.
Other items in the collection include:
Breakfast At Tiffany’s Wedding Invitations from £2.50
Breakfast at Tiffany’s Table Plan
Breakfast at Tiffany’s Wedding Place Cards
Breakfast at Tiffany’s Thank You Cards
Breakfast at Tiffany’s Menus
Breakfast at Tiffany’s Table Names / Table Numbers
Blue Tiffany box wedding favour with white ribbon
(which I will get around to posting about soon)
