Our dear friend Erica Miller designed all of the custom paper items for the Moroccan Evening. Inspired by the Moroccan tiles, Erica designed a custom Mandala for both Amy's Dessert Table and the Sunday Supper Table - allowing both tables to relate well to each other and create a cohesive story. The colors and scale of patterns of the dinner table were a softer interpretation of the designs.
For those of you who don't know what a Mandala is, it's quite a beautiful concept...in Sanskrit maṇḍala literally means "essence" It is a concentric diagram having spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism and represents"circle-circumference" or "completion." Erica at Thoughtful Day created a Mandala for Karen's wedding invitations last year, and thus inspired the tradition. It was a beautiful way to create a unique logo that was infused with a bit more meaning. We were clearly thrilled to have Erica design another mandala for SS, and all the proper paper goods that followed ! For those of you who may not be familiar with Erica's work, you must see it immediately. Erica's line of Invitations (both custom & mix and match suites) are elegant and delightful at the same time. And not only is Erica Super talented, she is one of the sweetest-funniest-cutest people you'll ever meet. Check out her Wedding Invitations here and her awesome wedding blog here.
Erica's full suite included recipe cards for our guests to take home. Each recipe card had its own unique border all complimenting one another. Along with the recipe cards and the cookie bags from Amy's table...guests took home these adorable jars of home made preserved lemons. Erica designed the tags for these jars and the cookie packaging as well. Thank you e! xoxo
We'll be posting tips on how to preserve your own lemons at home soon.
