A Spring Dinner Party

This month we were lucky enough to be featured in Traditional Home Magazine alongside our friend Dean Driver of Consilium Lifestyle Collections. Such great inspiration for a spring dinner party!

Styled Shoot Series: One Color Palette, Four Ways – ROMANCE

The last theme in our series of One Color Palette, Four Ways is ROMANCE.

This collection showcased a lot of laser cut elements. The invitation was a Thai silk box wrapped with a gold monogrammed laser cut band. Inside the doors of the box, there were pockets for the insert cards. The place card and escort card were laser cut from metallic blush paper with an elaborate damask detail that matched the invitation band. The menu also featured a custom satin folder with detailed gold fabric.

Styled Shoot Series: One Color Palette, Four Ways – BEACH

To continue our series on One Color Palette, Four Ways - Today’s theme is BEACH.

For this invitation suite we wanted to concentrate on texture. We created a custom grasscloth folder with monogramed belly band to hold all of the invitation pieces. The die cut ceremony program folded into a wave pattern and unfolded to show all of the information. The place cards were hand sewn to tented grasscloth cards.

Styled Shoot Series: One Color Palette, Four Ways-MODERN

We recently partnered with the always fabulous Jordan Payne Events to show brides how one color palette can hold endless possibilities for their big day. With gold, pink, copper and peach as the as our theme colors, we created four complete looks that were captured by the talented Thisbe Grace Photography. Today’s theme is MODERN.

What makes an invitation suite modern is taking inspiration from different sources and presenting them in a new way. We combined the traditional style plaque shape but created it out of laser cut acrylic with frosted etching. One thing we love about the acrylic medium is how a client can customize each piece with a different color backing. The menu card has the added detail of the MENU cutout. We added the same effect to the backing. To include the color palette throughout, we selected a copper colored etching.

We recently partnered with the always fabulous Jordan Payne Events to show brides how one color palette can hold endless possibilities for their big day. With gold, pink, copper and peach as the as our theme colors, we created four complete looks that were captured by the talented Thisbe Grace Photography. Today’s theme is ART DECO.

The nostalgic ferris wheel gives guests the feeling that they’re going to transformed to the bustling boardwalk of the 1920′s. We designed a deco inspired invitation engraved on copper sheets with an aged patina finish. Borders with intricate geometric detail were throughout this look. Guest can expect a daring party with a romantic feel.

Real Wedding: Brooke + Kevin

Brooke and Kevin were such a wonderful couple to work with! They had a clear vision for their soft, romantic, classic wedding that would take place at Arlington Hall. Adding bold details like the choice of gold engraving with a real lace wrap, gives the invitation texture and luxurious feeling. This show stopping wedding was featured on the D Weddings blog and we just had to repost it!!

We love these images from our recent wedding of Amanda and Trent! This is another wonderful collaboration with Wendy Kay of Birds of a Feather Weddings. Wendy always brings together the best vendors to create not only a meaningful, but visually amazing wedding!!

We designed a letterpress invitation suite with a intricate and minimal feel. Very clean and elegant but not too stuffy, just like their dream wedding! We also created some large laser cut wood signs to be placed throughout the ceremony space. These turned out more fabulous than we could imagine. They were painted gold and made a wonderful statement! SFP also provided the toss feather bags and custom stamp. When we heard it was feathers we would be tossing, we knew this would be just a fabulous photo opt!

Thank you so much Amanda and Trent! It was an honor to be apart of your wedding day!

The New and Improved SFP Studio

Southern Fried Paper is SUPER proud of our new studio photographs from Apryl Ann Photography. It’s so important for our team to love their workspace while feeling creative and inspired. We also asked The Southern Table to outfit the studio with some floral beauty and Something You Makeup Artistry to make us look gorgeous for our close up!

Owner, Chelsea Carpenter, had the idea for wanting a display that she could showcase the latest invitation suites with ease. After consulting with Kiki Preston Design and collecting all the ornate frames from the studio, this gallery wall was born! To change up the space, we decided to go with a geometric/moroccan style stencil from Royal Design Studio. (Tip from Kiki: Get the pro size! Worth the extra money for the bigger stencil!) Stencils are not just for nursery’s or your grandmas house anymore! They can add character to any room without having to invest a lot of money or if you’re in a rental property.

The newly added upholstered piece is a craigslist find that was refinished and upholstered by Kiki Preston. We decided to mimic the geometric pattern but with a pop of color! The room is divided by a bookshelf that showcases SFP’s collection of eclectic ampersand signs.
