Font Love Series #11

Friday I’m in LOVEEE! NOW TRENDING! Hand-lettered inspired calligraphy fonts.

I adore all things calligraphy. In my spare time when I am not drawing or painting you will find me practicing my hand at calligraphy with a pointed pen and paintbrush. Hand-lettered scripts are flirty and fun! Colorful calligraphic swashes add handcrafted elegance to your wedding invitations and stationery.

Nautical Wedding Ideas

Nautical themed weddings are super hot this year! Perfect for a nautical wedding in the spring, summer, or fall. The obvious color choice that goes perfectly with a nautical theme is navy blue, of course. To add a splash of modern fun I LOVE coral pink, lightest khaki brown, and metallic silver as the accent colors. Navy blue stripes on the cake and tables are a MUST!

Get inspired!

Tip! When working with stripes for your nautical event, use them sparingly. Remember less is more. Think cake, and table runner. Now that is nautical perfection!
