Nothing brings out a special theme more than the invitation. This is a boxed Feather Her Nest Invitation complete with actual “eggling” that your guest can hatch and grow themselves. This is so fun to create

Today’s post I am featuring the wedding of one of my invitation clients – the lovely couple Danielle + Michael Ruggiero. Danielle is such a pleasure. Full of this contagious joie de vivre and romaticism. This beautiful wedding was captured by Premier Digital Photography & Wedding Cinema. The photography is pretty amazing. Reception: Westmont Country Club
Straight off the presses - Two color letterpress 2 ply 100% cotton card fully die cut to showcase PF logo. I am super happy with how they came out.
Petite-Fete has been featured in the second issue of Baby Lifestyles! Please check out our 4 page spread on pages 90-93 edited by Lauren Halperin, the editor of Baby Lifestyles! Thank you so much to Melissa Lynn of BeImaged who captured the day with her beautiful photography. So overjoyed to be featured alongside so many other creative designers. I have included the full magazine here so that you can see all the fabulous baby candy. I especially love the nursery spread “Ruby and Scarlet Nursery Twins” also by lauren - such brave use of color! For those of us who are too lazy I am including the break out pages of our spread.
Baby Lifestyles has been around for a while providing tons and tons of ideas for your next baby shower and nursery. If your a mom-to-be or a new mom I am pretty sure you’ve oogled the site once or twice. The’ve just cooked up a new e-mag premiering this month and its full of great unique ideas of all things baby. We are especially excited because our Baby Shower “Cirque du Bebe” is in this months sneak peek and we will be featured in the next issue! Can’t wait!
Here is a preview of a baby shower that was recently styled by Petite-Fete. Special thanks to: Suzanne who among so many other things helped create, draw and hand paint the fab photo booth back drop, Susie for brainstorming ideas, day of coordination, Soleil, our day of clown, who even taught herself to juggle for the event, Farah for helping me comb the fabric and flower district for just the right trimmings. More photos of our day of fun and of course the photo booth photographed and blogged about H-E-R-E. Our photographer for the day was the über talented Melissa Lynn of Be Imaged Photography. Melissa is such a pleasure to work with and she totally captured the essence of the day. Thanks to Sean and Rose for blessing our family with such a great joy.

Posting a sneak peak of the invitation suite I designed for a baby shower I am co-hosting. The shower is for my darling SIL and I am trying not too give too much info away as not spoil any surprises. I am so overjoyed and excited about having a new baby in the family and the new baby has been the inspiration for lots of creativity. Since the invites have gone out I can post a little preview. The invites were designed and printed silkscreen on plexi to complement a fun vintage circus theme. The envelopes are a yummy raspberry pink and have been hand addressed in a eye popping white flourish calligraphy. I searched for perfect vintage postage that would add just the right finish. Response cards are die cut to look like an admission ticket and the reverse is a mounted fun polka lokta paper in sparkle hot pink. There will more sweet deets to come later.

For a long time I was super cyber shy. I always felt comfort in my anonymity and actually relished an heir of mystery. In this new era of reality television, facebook, twitter, myspace, hoot suite, tumbler, I mean the list is endless – I’ve found myself subcuming and becoming ever slightly more comfortable with the notion that it’s okay to share a piece of my world. After 5 years of being camera shy on my website, I’ve replaced the illustrated me about a month ago with actual pictures. It took a lot of convincing my husband, who will go to great lengths to have any pictures or information about himself listed anywhere on the web taken down. I agree with him in a lot of ways, and I try to weigh and balance the amount of information I put out there. I must say though, I’ve gotten a lot of good reception from my clients and I think it all in all was a good decision. I do draw the line though when in comes to children. This is my own personal non-judgmental opinion but, I pause when I see children being plastered all over the web especially on facebook. So that friends is my public service announcement for the month!:)
