One of my most favorite things to do, particularly when the air starts to turn chill, is to set a cozy table that begs my family to linger and tell stories while drinking hot cider. So, when my friend, Valen, asked if I’d design an invitation for a fall table inspiration shoot that she was working on I immediately said, “Yes!” Quite honestly, I would have said yes to anything she asked me. Val is the owner of Flower Afternoon and creates the most gorgeous, organic, floral masterpieces. I jump at any chance I get to work with her. If you just glance down at that first image, you will see exactly what I mean. When you find the picture of her bouquet, I dare bet that your shoulders relax a bit as you slowly take in its beauty. The invitations were such a fun change for me. I did a faux wood background on paper board, and used a plaid fabric for the envelope liner.
