Design Project: Wedding Reception

Have you ever had that "buttons-popping" moment when you finished a project that you were pleased with and packaged it up to deliver?

Yesterday, I delivered my latest design project. It was so much fun ... eight of my flower prints will be displayed on the tables at a wedding reception this Saturday (August 18) as table markers so guests know where they are to be seated. The white tree branch against the green background (center image) is the invitation.

The place cards include the corresponding flower and the guest's name on the top/outside and on the inside is printed the common and the Latin flower name and the bride and groom's names and wedding date. The same font was used as the invitation. Each print also had a tent card with the flower names.

It was so much fun to meet with my client and deliver Christmas in August. She was obviously very happy with the end result. I went over optimum set up and care. We brainstormed some additional ideas such as displaying on a white or forest green table cloth at a greeting table.

The real sweet spot came a little later when Kitty sent me the following email, which made my heart swell:

Jaime, her mom, and dad wanted to see what you had created. They were overwhelmed and so appreciative!!! It was wonderful! Jaime couldn't believe how amazing the images were and how well done the place cards were! Thanks again for the great product. Customer 100% Satisfied (:

It doesn't get much better than that!

And I thought a mosaic of all the images would be lovely. ;->
