SURPRISE Wedding Shower

Last Friday we surprised Haute Papier's Vendor Coordinator Julie with a surprise shower in celebration of her upcoming wedding.  I'm a sucker for scheming to keep a surprise, and we managed to do it!  With help from our spouses we had mini-margaritas in Patron bottles inspired by one of the most innovative caterers out there - Peter Callahan along with tea sandwiches and custom monogrammed cupcakes from DC's very own Georgetown Cupcake.   Cheers to Julie & Skelly and their upcoming nuptials!

"How to" Videos for

It's been a busy day at Haute Papier Leesburg today.  We were asked by (who we did a bunch of videos for a few years ago) to do a few series of videos for one of their partners,  We shot 24 tutorials on wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations, programs and save-the-dates in one long day!  Here are a few pics - we'll be sure to share the videos once they're out.

A Plum, Lavender and Butter Affair!

As promised here's a "sweet" recap from the baby shower that Jackie and I hosted for Erin this past weekend.  All of the desserts were homemade - you can find the recipes on The District Domestic.  We'll be showing how to make the pomanders in a DIY next week - stay tuned :) Purple_Yellow_Baby_Shower_2
