Rose gold and silver foil are here!

So about a million years ago, way back in 2007, Big Ben proposed to me on the balcony of Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi—the home of our alma mater, Ole Miss. And after he took a knee and proposed using the very words that my grandfather spoke when he proposed to my grandmother so many years ago, he gave me the rose gold antique-inspired engagement ring I had been dreaming about since about a month after we started dating (hey! when you know, you know).

(You can skip to the 1:40 mark to get to the good stuff and click here to read the story behind that book I was reading.)

I’ve never stopped loving rose gold and I’m so happy to see that it’s still sticking around the fashion world after all these years. I honestly think it will always be lovely and in style, which is why I was really excited to get a commission for the Austen invitation in navy ink and rose gold foil for a summer magazine release. SO, all of this is to say—in a day or so, rose gold and silver foil will be 2 new upgrade options joining  gold foil in the Lucky Luxe color palette and I’m really happy and stupidly sentimental about that. Here’s a little preview Austen and Boudoir in our newest foils:

Papelbon birthday sneak peek!

We’ve had the opportunity to work with MLB closer Jonathan Papelbon’s family on a few projects over the years and so love his wife Ashley’s willingness to let us be creative with her ideas. One of our first projects together were the sweet baby announcements for their first daughter, Parker. Parker is growing up so fast and now has a baby brother, Gunner. Even though Jonathan is playing for the Phillies now, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, just a few miles down the road from our studio is where they call home.  Ashley contacted us again to commission an invitation for Parker and Gunner’s joint balloon birthday party at a barn venue here in Mississippi, so we had fun with lots of colors inspired by the Geronimo Balloons that were being used for the birthday party. It was fun to get kiddish and colorful!
