{Wedding Wednesday} Erin & Jordan

Erin and Jordan had one of the sweetest love stories we've had to date. They met in the seventh grade and had been together for ten years before they tied the knot. Talk about meant to be! We felt so fortunate to not only create their wedding invitation suite but also their paper goods including the programs, signs, place cards, seating chart, and adorable little "chapter books" of their love story placed at each seat. It's couple's like these that make our jobs worth it! We had a wonderful time creating with Erin and Jordan and wish them all the best! Enjoy the stunning pictures below by the fabulously talented Marni Rothschild.

Nautical Styled Shoot

 As spring is approaching, we wanted to share a nautical styled shoot we had the pleasure of participating in a while back to get you in the mood for warmer weather as well. The shoot was a fun twist on the traditional wedding--which Scarlet Plan & Design specializes in. The navy and citron color scheme was pulled through the entire styled event and would make any nautical couple long for their special day to be a masterpiece such as this one!
{ For the stylish shoot we provided }
// rsvp postcard // square menu // anchor napkins // drink stirrers // digital calligraphy // circular die cut welcome cards //
// guest place cards (white printing on navy paper) // layered invitation with bakers twine and a vintage compass
// envelope with custom patterned liner //  custom designed wedding monogram--which is included on the cake! //
The whole event was captured by the incredible The Click Chick Photography at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina here in Charleston.

Tuesday Tips & Trends: Dressing Up Your Holiday Table

Looking for creative ways to dress up your holiday dining table but don't know where to start? Well look no further! We have some fun and easy ideas for you and your loved ones...

Put a couple of "Dear Santa" notepads on the kid's table at Thanksgiving so they can start to sketch out their wish list for Old Saint Nick. This will keep them occupied and excited for the coming holidays!

These rosemary place cards can be great for any dinner. Easy to make and inexpensive, they would be a great addition to your family gathering.

Wanting to do something a bit more festive for your holiday feast? Bring in items off of your Christmas tree to hold your place cards! You'll probably have a couple extra ornaments and tinsel laying around so why not spruce up your table with them?

These gold leaves will look lovely for a Thanksgiving dinner fit for a king. Luckily, there are still plenty of leaves laying around outside so get some spray paint, a pen and get creating!

Creating personalized seating cards out of cranberry wreaths is a beautiful addition to any table setting. We love how inviting and welcoming place cards can be and these little wreaths do not differ!

Having a formal dinner but want to do something a bit unique? Write the evening's menu on a brown paper bag and place the starter course right in there. Because who doesn't like to sit down to a warm baguette specially wrapped for them!

Another menu option is writing your delicious meal on a chalk board or mirror for guests to be greeted by when they arrive. Knowing exactly what's on the menu will prepare everyone for an exciting evening!
