So, one of my good friends just got engaged and she has put me in charge of her paper materials.

She and her fiancé have a lovely hobby of raising pet fish and a love for all things nautical. She specifically requested that I use the angelfish as a motif for their announcements because they are monogamus (fun fact!).

Take a look at the result below!

I just sent her the proof and she couldn’t be more pleased!

In case you didn’t know, I have a Zazzle invitation shop that, so far, has seen some success-and for that, I am grateful! Thank you so much!

More designs are on the way, so stay tuned!

Squares have made their appearance in reception decor and they are slated to stay for a long time, especially in terms of cocktail and contemporary-style receptions. Aside from the recent appearance of square tables, you may take this shape even further by using square vases for flowers or candles. Futhermore, squares are taken into account with cakes, invitations, and place settings. However, be sure to have a few frilly or sinuous elements thrown in so the overall vibe isn’t misconstrued as harsh or, worse yet, boring.
