Thoughtful Day for Sunday Suppers





I am sure by now most of you have seen or heard about Sunday Suppers; the past couple of weeks tons of beautiful images have been floating around the internet which has been great! Karen Mordechai, one of the ladies behind Sunday Suppers just sent over these photos of all of the paper items I designed for the Moroccan supper. At the same event I also designed all of the patterns for Amy Atlas's dessert table so I decided to use the same custom designed mandala but compose it to better fit the tablescape and blend with the gorgeous moroccan tiles that were the centerpiece. The patterns were scaled to fit appropriately with each item, whether it was the belly band that surrounded the menu or the tags that hung on the lemon preserves. I just love the yellow of the lemons with the turquoise and gray of the favor tag. A great color combo! All of the menu and recipe cards had their own unique custom designed border that complimented the colorful patterns and mandala. It was such a fun project to work on with so much immense talent. So much work goes into one of these suppers and fortunately for all of us it is beautifully documented by Karen!

Your work is absolutely beautiful. You really captured the Moroccan feel in a very modern way. I love the blue and orange together -- and the pattern you did for the dessert table just made the food look all the more beautiful and tantalizing...

I am on a hunt for muslin bags with the red/orange string. Where do you think I can find these?

The look lovely with the stationary. I am hoping to incorporate the bags into as much as possible into my wedding.
