Talking Calligraphy on Small Talk Big Day!


Loved chatting with Amber Harrison of Wedding Paper Divas on a New episode of Small Talk Big Day!

I shared some of my favorite calligraphy tips. Take a look!

Tiffany & Co. Holiday Event Calligraphy

Last week I had the great pleasure to create table stationery for a holiday event at Tiffany & Co. in New York . Silver calligraphy was used throughout and added sparkle to the elegant white-on-white setting.   Since I was on site to take care of last minute calligraphy needs, I was able to take a few photos.  Here are some details for inspiration!

The tables were named for gemstones with the table signs lettered in silver

Creative escort cards for weddings

For a long time, the best way to display escort cards was to delicately lay them out on a table allowing guests to find their name and table number. While this tradition is still beautifully upheld, more and more brides are coming up with creative ways to display their escort cards. As someone fascinated with calligraphy and lettering, I’m happy to see the spotlight shined on a wedding detail that doesn’t always get the attention that it deserves. Here are images from a few weddings that take a creative approach to escort cards with great success!

For these escorts, I calligraphed the names on translucent envelopes
The insert cards with bold numerals show through softly and create a nice juxtaposition

Love the torn edge and the vintage lamp shade
