Thomas Paul String Folios

March 28th, 2012

You’re planning your Destination Wedding, you have plethora of travel information to provide guests, as well as a wish to present it stylishly somehow as a cool, contemporary invitation that doesn’t break the bank…

May I suggest a handwritten 1 to 2 pager (calligraphic or otherwise), scanned and printed on luxurious stock, held elegantly in a String Folio by NY based textile designer Thomas Paul.

Just saying.

Billie’s 1930′s Hens High Tea

March 26th, 2012

As I race against time to finish Zed & Bee’s soon to be launched Invitation Collection, in my final 25 days of pregnancy, I thought it time to pull from the company archives to showcase some of the invitations we’ve been particularly proud of.

Last December Billie celebrated her Hens High Tea with family and friends at Manly Pavilion. Over canapés and bubbles her guests, in 30′s French inspired garb, handed the Bride beautifully wrapped vintage tea cups to make up a sentimental, eclectic set to last a lifetime.

The invitation for this stylish event aimed to conger an essence of glamour by combining bold, classic typography foiled on sumptuously weighty jet black card stock. The formal invitation was poster wrapped in a collage of Hollywood Siren Pin Ups illustrating fashion of the time. The folded package was housed and posted in a tissue lined envelope with gold calligraphy adorning it’s front.

We Love Yellow & Our Pig Planter

March 5th, 2012

We love yellow. It is my personal favourite colour, symbolic of a sunny day or disposition and therefore an easy choice when selecting a hue to represent Zed & Bee. Bee and I are always on the lookout for yellow bits and pieces to warm our lovely white walled studio. When this lemon yellow Ceramic Pig Planter was spied on Etsy we knew we could provide the perfect home, and our landscape designing mother would provide the appropriate succulent.
