Summer Wedding Reception – Citrus Lemons and Limes


Jen, a wonderful (and very frequent!) client of ours, asked us to help tie in lemons and limes for her wedding reception. We excitingly accepted. Jen has such an eye for detail and LOVES paper as much as we do! I am so excited to unfold her event.
We were so inspired and in love with the lemons and limes theme, that we created an invitation in our shop to fit:
Now . . . to unfold her special event! All of her fabulous photography was done by Shannon Wilfong.
It starts with the entrance – what a creative way to greet their guests . . .
A fabric covered custom sign (in appropriate colors!)
Jen really tied in yellows and lime colors . . . everywhere! She held her event in the backyard of our sweet and dear friend, Amy. Their backyard was the perfect venue for a summer celebration.
Adorable yellow paper lantern lights were strung on the double porch overlooking the table setup.
I was so excited that Jen and Liz decided to create yellow and green poms for the event. (I love making them after Jeffrey’s 5th party!)
Beautiful tables filled the backyard.
Her tables were adorned with beautiful vases of lemons and limes. Perfectly fitting for a summer event.
The chairs had the gift bags for each guest, as well as an (oh so creative) green textured cardstock cone of popcorn hung by yellow ribbon.
Framed quotes were placed on each of the tables. We designed the quote cards with scattered lemons and limes that looked like an engraved/letterpress design.

Here a sample of one of the 8 quotes cards that we designed for the tables.
I love how she wrapped her forks/knives for the outdoor celebration. She layered a clear plate with a green plate and then wrapped the fork/knife in the adorable layered napkins and tied with natural raffia (that ties in so well with the natural chairs!)
The gift bags were stuffed with personalized gifts. A custom gift tag that we designed hung from the outside:
Inside the gift bags were cookies (for a late night snack after the big day!), a water bottle (with a custom wrap we designed), and a CD of handpicked songs that was wrapped in a petal envelope with a logo we designed to coordinate.
This is the fun water bottle wrap and logo for the CD that we designed . . .
Now do you see what I mean about Jen paying attention to details? Well, if not, the following will prove it! She had it all covered!
Food! They had tables full of delicious dishes from Ranucci’s Big Butt BBQ. We created food tents to label the various items. It is making me hungry just thinking of their wonderful food!

I love these lollis! Jen stuck them into a wrapping paper wrapped box – so beautiful!
And look at the yummy cupcakes from SAS (gorgeous – can you see the sanding sugar that they sprinkled on the tops!?)


Beautiful job, Jen and Liz! Congrats!

Thanks for sharing, Jen!
