"Green" Save the Dates Almost a year later.
Almost a year ago around this time, we sent out these save the dates. I can't believe the leaves have lasted this long. I still have them pinned to my office cord board. We wanted to capture the invitee's attention while keeping cost down and being "green" in mind.
This save the date was design for a Periscope client party. By using fresh magnolia leaves and fresh pressed flowers, we captured the sensations of summer and excitement of the annual summer client party. Each invitee first received a save the date, which included magnolia leaves printed by custom made stamps and wrapped in bright yellow tissue paper sandwiched was between two sheets of chip board. Magnolia leaves last 4 to 6 weeks before turning a lighter shade green. They can last over a year after turning. An elegant invitation quickly followed featuring fresh pressed flowers, which were shot, and place individually to create a vibrant summer bouquet. The handmade typeface reflected the whimsical nature of summer and structure of grass, vines and petals found in nature.
We used grew grass in planter to be placed at each table. Name tags look like corsages and a wax paper good bag so summer salt water taffee. Yum!
