A gorgeous destination wedding on Lake Como, Italy, was quite an inspiration for this custom hand painted wedding invitation. The Villa del Balbianello perched atop a lush hillside overlooks the lake of transparent hues of emerald greens and turquoise blues. Having traveled there myself, I can say that it is one of the most beautiful locations in Italy. I loved creating and painting this map with other details throughout the invitation. This was truly a pleasure! http://papermelange.com
The spring has been a busy time around the studio at Paper Melange. Particularly in the garden.. I had 2 wren houses that had at least 6 babies in each.. and they were busy from sunrise to sunset, building the nests and caring for their little ones. As summer approaches everything is in a state of lush green and the scent of gardenia and lavendar fills the air. A lot of painting inspiration surrounds me…
The art of writing begins with pretty paper. An artful note or piece of stationery that expresses your personal style and one that you love to send.
Tuesday evening, July 9, ABC hosted a beautiful event at The Pacific Club. We were treated to smart crisp cocktails from Night Owl Productions at the edge of the lake. Then inside where a gorgeous room with lush florals and decor by The Lynden Lane Company and Keith J. Laverty awaited the guests. Paper Melange was thrilled to design the evenings menu and program. Sensational Sweets had a gorgeous table of treats. The tables were dressed to perfection by La Tavola and adorned with fine silver and goblets from Archive Vintage Rentals. The evening featured speaker Ann marie Houghtailing offering insights about her innovative approach to business development. A great group of musicians, Essence Entertainment, lit the room up. A big thank you to Lindsay at LVL Weddings and Events!
