I came across this beautiful fall harvest feast invitation at Oh So Beautiful Paper.
Designed by Gus & Ruby Letterpress , it makes me miss the fall from my Pennsylvania roots.
Liz, of Paper Posy Designs, was the originator of this inspiration shoot.
The shoot took place in an apple orchard and Liz’s vision was all apple pie, cozy blankets, wood texture and a rich, autumnal palette.
Luxe pearl white cotton paper was the perfect canvas for my Belluccia calligraphy font paired with classic roman font and letterpress printed in a deep plummy ink. The gorgeous multicolor fabric invitation backing was hand sewn using metallic gold thread.
Finally,the piece was wrapped in a double-layer belly band composed of creamy ecru cotton and natural oatmeal linen upon which was letterpress printed an inviting quote.
To top it all off, each envelope was lined with a metallic gold-stripe envelope liner.
Menus at each place setting again featured simple typesetting, lots of white space and the addition of a small wheat graphic ( from my Belluccia flourishes set) and were mounted to a creamy ecru cotton backing paper for a neutral tone on tone effect.
The whole suite puts me in the mood for crisp colorful fall leaves crunching under my feet:)
Don’t have much of that in Texas:(
You can see photos of the whole shoot on The Sweetest Occasion!

My new calligraphy font, “DomLovesMary” will be ready soon.
The font family features three different versions of the alphabet, a set of “Add Ons” that will include words like “and, to, of, for, at, etc…in addition to 124 flourishes to be added to either the upper or lower case so you can create your own custom look!
It will be released on myfonts.com on my Correspondence Ink foundry page.
I’ll be sponsoring a give away of a wedding item using the DomLovesmary font on Brenda’s blog soon. Subscribe to my blog to get the details.
