Ok so, these cards are a bit controversial. However, I really love them! When I was designing my line, I thought about my girlfriends. What do we love, hate, like to do? (The answer was we love drinking!) How do we talk amongst each other? (The answer to this was: we keep it real!) So it was only natural for me to come up with cards that fit the moments we have encountered.
A big situation that has come up is the dreaded break up. I know, touchy subject, but a reality of life. Some of those breakups were amicable but many (college years) were not so great. So these cards are for the ones that were not so great! Stay tuned for new break up cards about female break ups!
Many of you may, or may not know about our transition out of the wedding industry. As of 2017 we are finishing up our contracted clients and moving into the wholesale and retail arena! While I am sad to see my custom clients go, I am excited to begin this new journey. I will definitely miss the one-on-one relationship I have established with my clients! We will only take on 5 custom orders per year and each order must be a minimum of $2,000.
As we make this transition there are many new and exciting feats we have accomplished! The first of which is our brand sparkling new Wholesale Catalog! We are so pleased with the final result! Take a look for yourself on the wholesale page!
I am so happy to announce that we were featured on Orange Blossom Bride the last week of June! This shoot was super special because the couple photographed was a real couple celebrating their 10th year of marriage! Mitch and Leila are just the sweetest and their kids are seriously cute. Check out the full post here: Casa Feliz Vow Renewal
In the meantime, check out my fave images from the shoot!
Casa Feliz, the historic home located in the heart of Winter Park, was the backdrop for our shoot. This shoot featured beautiful Burgundy, Blush and lace wedding ideas. Since the couple were celebrating such a huge milestone, I opted for a luxury suede invitation. Inside the suede invitation, features a rose gold layer with a blush water color invitation. I wanted to keep the palette super soft in comparison to the other burgundy elements. I hope that you can draw some amazing ideas from our shoot!

Today on the blog we have Elba and David. This styled engagement session took place at Sydonie Mansion. The mansion is a beautiful hideaway tucked into the forests of Zellwood, Florida. This charming mansion was the backdrop for the couple’s shoot. This couple is so incredibly cute together! I loved seeing how they interacted with each other. Noticing sweet moments like David holding Elba’s train as they navigated the grounds was a highlight for me! Their engagement session turned out gorgeous. I love that they took their Orlando Engagement shoot to the next level. For the shoot we dreamed up a navy watercolor invitation paired with a deep red suede folio. The folio was tucked into a goodie box for guests to enjoy their favorite treats!
Hey guys! So it certainly has been as while since I have blogged on my site. I hope that you have been keeping up with us on Instagram. If not, hop on over and follow us for behind the scenes scoop and our latest projects!
SO, what has happened since I last blogged? We had a BABY! Yes, my little Arabella has been in the world for about 6 months now. I took a longer maternity break than I thought due to complications. After about 4 months off we are now back in the studio! Thank you to all my amazing clients for allowing me time to recover!
We have also started a passion project that is super near and dear to my heart. I started a blog about mom/worklife balance with a focus on entrepreneurs. I found the transition extremely difficult. So, I wanted to document my process and maybe even help a mom or two! Check it out if you have little ones: http://www.bossymommyblog.com
I am also now offering branding + Web Design for all my mompreneurs and lady bosses. I remember being a beginner and bootstrapping my site for years. It was only when I hired a pro was I able to truly harness the power of a website! That pro is now my mentor, which allows me to help women grow their businesses and dominate their markets! Head on over to Henry-Charles Design now for pricing and more information!
Finally, I have been thinking about this next step for a very long time. Pretty Peacock Paperie will now offer greeting cards both locally and via our online shop! I wanted to make our products more readily available to consumers. This was our next big step! Each week I will roll out a brand spanking new design! Super-Duper Exciting!!!! Be sure to follow us on IG @PrettyPeacockPaperie. We will be doing Giveaways in the upcoming weeks!
Whew! That was a lot! We certainly have been busy! I am so happy and excited for all the changes to come. Local consults can still be booked by contacting us. Our in-person consults will be very limited so please book early!
