Rachel + Chris {Save the Date}

Now guys, this is a love story in a half!!

I met with Rachel for a champagne at Cumulus Up in Melbourne just before I left to discuss the stationery for her wedding. These two need to write a novel about how they got together. I actually almost teared up when she was telling me!! But long story short ...

Chris and Rachel had known each other for years before they realised that they were meant for each other. They met through Rachel's brother, moved to separate countries, decided to go on an overseas trip together, realised they had feelings for each other, then finally Chris moved to Melbourne and the rest is history.

Their first official date was in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens, so it seemed fitting to have the wedding there too. Chris and Rachel wanted a Save the Date they could send to their friends and family that would be travelling for the wedding. They wanted the design to reflect the gardens, incorporate their silhouettes and also the birds that were fluttering around when Chris proposed.



They inserted an info sheet in with the Save the Date magnet letting people know the best places to stay in Melbourne.



Rachel is the most organised bride I have ever met!! She has already chosen her dress, what the bridesmaids are wearing, the flowers, the celebrant and I think music is pretty sorted too. And it's a year away!!

Cannot wait to start designing the rest of the stationery suite for Chris and Rachel's big day.

LOVE xx

My favourites from Vietnam

I have finally gotten around to getting all the photos off my cameras of our trip to South East Asia from December. We went in between leaving Melbourne, after three and a half years, to moving back to New Zealand. It was so nice going through them all and remembering all the amazing sights we saw and the fun we had.

Here are some of my favourite pics:

Our first Pho

Colour inspiration {rustic greens}

At The Blushing Teacup we find choosing a colour palette a great first step when planning an event. You probably have a gazillion ideas so this helps bring them altogether into one amazing package.  

Get inspired by our colour inspiration palettes. Rustic greens look great combined with natural woods, some creamy whites and a touch of navy and brass.

Olivia {first birthday}

One of my latest invite designs was for little Olivia who is turning one very soon. The theme is ladybugs, and this is what I came up with.


How cute is that little face!!

I also came up with another colourway that I thought was pretty cute too. More like a garden party theme.

Anicka + Nick {wedding invite}

Two words I love. Destination. Wedding. So good.

Anicka and Nick got married in Mykonos, Greece. How amazing does that sound? And I was privileged enough to design their invites for them. They wanted it to be summery and modern to really reflect their gorgeous destination.

Anicka had found a wrapping paper with some beautiful patterns on it that she wanted to incorporate into the design. This is what I came up with.


I also created another colourway of the design and left it blank so that Anicka and Nick's families could write little messages in Greek to accompany the invites. How much does that blue just make you think of Greece. Delicious.

Master Rakich {baby shower invite}

It is baby season in my group of friends and family at the mo. Very exciting time for all.

And with that comes baby showers. Here is an invite I designed for one of my closest friends Tamara. It was a nice change designing for the little people in our lives.
