DIY: Sips & Sweets


Using yesterday’s inspiration board as a starting point, Jess imagined a simple wedding reception of sips and sweets, with adorable little layer cakes and pretty pink Depression-era glass plates.

What are some of your favorite cake flavor combinations? We like banana cake with caramel buttercream, sponge cake with lemon cream and fresh raspberries, coconut cake with passion fruit curd, dark chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting…

The other element that Jess created from the inspiration board was a beautiful invitation suite. There’s no reason doing it yourself has to look DIY! All you need is a gorgeous font (we used Belluccia, available for just $39), a decent printer, and hand-cut envelope liners if you’re so inclined (Paper Source has an envelope liner kit to help you out).

A huge thank you to our newest sponsor, Rebecca Hansen, for these beautiful photos!

    I love these so much and really enjoy making my own invitations for ALL parties. How do you track down a good printer without it costing a fortune?

    Lovely invitation suite! Love the fonts and colors… But I was wondering what is the font used for the date on the Save the Date?
