Presenting... Farrell & Chase

I was recently on a quest to find a creative wedding stationer to appear in the next edition of Confetti and to my delight I discovered... Farrell & Chase. I immediately fell in love!

Farrell & Chase was recommended to me by lots of my trusted contacts and I soon discovered why.
I adore the letterpress technique that Pamela uses (the leading lady behind the beautiful stationery) and she really does the vintage printing technique justice. Pamela's background in graphic design is evident from her gorgeous use of typography and the letterpress technique results in an elegant indentation effect that gives an almost pillow effect to the 100% cotton paper. One feel of any of Farrell & Chase's stationery and you will be hooked by the quality and Pamela's attention to detail! Check out Farrell & Chase's website to be spoilt for choice! (don't miss her beautiful blog!)

Before I go... also a big congrats to Pamela on her recent award of Best Wedding Supplier Website 2010! Very much deserved!

Customised napkins

These bespoke vintage napkins were also made specially for the Confetti shoot but would make the perfect gift for any bride and groom. How many people (apart from perhaps the Queen) can say they own table linen embroidered with their monograms!

They can made to commission for any occasions and would be a lovely way to mark a christening, special birthday or any event that takes your fancy! €40 a pair.

Here are some of the little bits I contributed to the "Sweet as Candy" shoot.

These menus feature love hearts for that extra sweetness!
Be creative and do something different and DIY for your seating plan. These are designed to be pegged to a ribbon and strung anywhere that takes your fancy!

Confetti Shoot

This post is long over due as the latest edition if Confetti was published in January- shame on me!
Anyway, here is the latest shoot that I styled for Confetti, Receptions. The theme was "As Sweet as Candy". I had so much fun gathering everything for the shoot it almost made me want to get married!
I sourced traditional sweets from M&S, jelly beans for the Jelly Bean Factory, beautiful handmade lollies from Pandora Bell, an Irish confectioner and not forgetting an abundance of yummy macaroons from LaDuree.
I made lots of little pieces for the shoot also which I will feature in my next blog entry X

I'm back in the saddle!

and I'm using this lovely image from damonabnormal to illustrate my point.
