Italian inspired Vow Renewal

We are so excited to have our custom tuscan stationery published on the “Italian inspired Vow Renewal” blog post at 100 Layer Cake Wedding blog today! A few months back Kristin Garcia of Kristin La Voie Photography and Kristina Fossbakk Ferris of Vision of Elegance Events set out to design a gorgeous shoot around an even more gorgeous couple and their very perfect vow renewal.

The feel of Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum transports you to a grand hillside estate in Italy, but the team didn’t have to go that far …they just traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The day was perfect and the photos turned out even better! Read the blog post for yourself at

Our custom aged wooden signage to say “Your seat is special, please sit here!” for the Bride and Groom.

…the details….that is all that needs to be said here!         

Custom background papers were wrapped around and designed for this soft, romantic tuscan feel “paper pretty”. Using the inspiration of grape foliage and lemon for the pop of excitement gave this suite the overall look and feel we were all going for.

The watercolor of the venue was added to the inside of the back pocket and adorned on the “amore” gift tags as well.

Truly an Italian inspired Vow Renewal! Limoncello shooters for everyone.

A festive Italian meal generally begins with a variety of appetizers, which are known as antipasti — a word that literally translates as before the pasto, or meal. These antipasti vary considerably from place to place in Italy, but they will often include a selection of cold cuts,       which are known as affettati misti.

Cheers to L + R! And kudos to Kristin + the team below for pulling off their dream day!

Glamping Time

Glamping Time. Who wouldn’t love to glamp? The days of camping in a tent have been long gone in my vocabulary but this is definitely camping in style. We love our job! Sometimes we actually get to play too. A few weeks back we loaded the car with some Sister Dish items and some menu ideas and headed to a private home in the suburbs of Chicago to meet our friend Jeff with The Huestudio + Co and photographer Gabi of photogabi. We set up several vignettes in Libby and John’s lush yard to “glamp” in style.




Using the beautiful linen from Over the Top Linens it truly set the tone for the front RV tablescape. Using matching ribbed white dish ware and a hammered flatware just gives you the feeling of class with a touch of wilderness. Love the textures!


Even when you try to make something happen…sometimes mother nature may not cooperate. This day while we were glamping, the weather was beautiful and sunny. As the awning was pull back to take more over head photos the leaves that had fallen on the the canopy began to fall all over the tablescape as if the trees were shook and nature did it all by itself. Sometimes life is just perfect!

I say it again…Who would not LOVE to dine here? The floral piece just puts it over the top for sure from The Flower Studio with all of the shades of coral, peach and orange a true fall feeling. Glamping Time in its richness!


Look for more glamping time images and words…
