check out the exploding box in action!
when brooke and her mother came to us last year with visions of an out-of-the-box invitation suite for her bat mitzvah, we couldn’t wait to get the design process under way. brooke had a love for fashion and loved the idea of incorporating different patterns, fabrics and textiles in the invitation. we loved her non-traditional, bold color palette of black, white, maroon with pops of turquoise. their “exploding box” invitation was layered with brandy melville inspired black and white striped canvas fabric and square maroon cover stock screen printed with black and turquoise ink. custom pockets on both sides held the details for the celebration, as well as the rsvp postcard (complete with personalized brooke postage). the black boxes were wrapped with a vibrant turquoise suede wrap and finished with her B squared monogram (since her initials were B.B.). they arrived to guests in white square boxes with custom address labels which wrapped around the box. when the lids were pulled off of these boxes, the invitations were literally out-of-the-box!
we didn’t stop there! for her amazing party, we designed mints, water bottles, and hand-sanitizers all continuing with the B theme. tables were dressed with custom menus and bold patterned table numbers. as guests entered the hotel, they were greeted with a beautiful display of white marble escort cards hand written in black ink by ashley of hello, bird, with a few B inspirational tiles sprinkled throughout! this family truly knows how to throw a fabulous celebration and we were honored to be a party of it!

we are still feeling rejuvenated from fabulous the knot pro network mixer we were a part of last week at bok bar. this unique venue used to function as a vocational school up until 2013 and now reinvented and restored into an evolving spot to live, work and play in south philly. heart & dash blew everyone away with their creative gymnasium transformation where the event took place. the colors of the evening were eraser pink and chalkboard green inspired by the school itself. it was a fabulous night of refreshing cocktails, delicious treats, good beats and best of all networking with crazy talented vendors!

a few years ago, we created a dance-themed bat mitzvah package for josh’s sister, sydney. now it was josh’s turn to celebrate with his sports-themed bar mitzvah.
the style of his invitation was inspired by his favorite sport, soccer and his favorite team, fc barcelona. the color palette consisted of his two favorite colors, blue and green. we designed a custom team crest for his monogram. the front of his invitation was designed to look like a professional soccer jersey. to stay “green,” his tech-savvy mother decided to create a website for guests to rsvp and gather more info. all invites were mailed to guests in grass green envelopes and finished with a custom photo stamp.
in addition to the invitation, we designed the elongated tri-fold ceremony program and turned the monogram into an embroidered patch for the take home/favor items for the kids. josh’s mom had them sewn onto mesh basketball shorts and cotton shorts for the girls. they turned out super cute!

we were honored to be the invitation sponsor for the grand opening of the arts ballroom
on wednesday. what a stunning venue! we are both wishing we could get married all over again. the space is located in the heart of center city on locust, between broad and 13th inside the arts condominium. it’s grand and historical, yet very crisp and contemporary.
our invitation + food signage for the day + evening events captured steven starr events
theme of art deco meets jane austen. this theme danced throughout the grand hall and ballroom beautifully with decor, food and music. our favorite part of the night was the dessert room! a large mirrored table filled the center of the room and was dripping with ornate candelabras and silver platters packed with tiny little tarts, then topped with towering bushels of baby’s breath and lilac. gorgeous!
