I was so excited to receive this invitation in the mail that I had to share.  My dear friend Meagan owns The Brocade Blackbird, and for her own wedding invitations she decided to do something totally unique and one-of-a-kind.  The invite arrived in a simple kraft box; inside were the suite pieces all wrapped up in a colorful, green fabric and grey and white bakers twine.

The invite pieces have hand-drawn art from Meagan including an illustration of the house where the reception will be held and a glass canning jar with striped straws – sneak peeks of what’s in store on their wedding day.

Underneath this bundled invitation was a simple note saying “peek inside” – and when lifted, a hand-cut, hidden diorama of the bride & groom on their wedding day was found.  Amazing!

The invite definitely set the mood for the wedding – I was honored to receive such a gorgeous invite and I can’t wait for their big day in July!
