Those Crazy Aussies… June 22, 2010
Check out this wedding reception where the bride and groom surprised their guests with a Michael Jackson impersonator who also taught a few willing guests a dance routine of Thriller. The scary zombies really make the cake stand out and I love the bride shimming-a-way in back. Thanks toPolka Dot Bride for the photo!

Purple Haze May 18, 2010
Purple is everywhere here at Luscious Verde! Everyday, we are bombarded with all things purple. When Pantone announced earlier this year that the hot new color was a nice vibrant teal we were all excited to abandon the purple haze and jump into a Tiffany’s teal frame of design. While teal hasn’t made a full run on purple, we are still excited to see all of the unique creations people come up with. From weddings to Bat Mitzvahs we use our amethyst, beet, orchid, violet, concord and eggplant papers in many ways. The picture shown is a full on purple paradise for the young Bat Mitzvah. Wendy, one of the co-owners, has taken the paper color beet under her wing as her new favorite color. So brace yourself, purple is here to stay. Combine it with our Kiwi paper for a dramatic effect or our new mushroom paper which is a light gray with texture for a more subtle effect.

Sight Mag May 11, 2010
As the summer wedding season quickly approaches, I wanted to share a super cute site focused on do-it-yourself projects and inspirations. Nonpareil Magazine was created by two amazingly creative artists. Maddy Hague of Inspired Bride and Kristen Magee of Paper Crave are the masterminds behind several creative websites. I especially love their little tags and the his/her/their cake badges. We always encourage our retailers and end consumers to be creative and think outside of the box with their invitation set. Happily, we’ve custom created everything from a Moulin Rouge-themed Bat Mitzvah to a pair of snow skis for a corporate event. The invitation does set the tone of your wedding, so make it a good one!

Paper Cuts April 26, 2010
Sometimes I run into something cute/funny/pretty/inspiring and simply lovely and I just have to share it with you. Have you ever flipped through the pages of Real Simple and found yourself staring at the designs made out of paper? The artist, Matthew Sporzynski, is one amazing paper constructionist — I would love that title for myself. I’ve been a bit obsessed with him over the last few years. He has built a career out of constructing the most beautiful paper scenes. It is definitely on the same level as painting any static image and giving that image tremendous depth. His paper work is intricate down to the ruffled detailing of a bed sheet to the little dusting of cocoa on hot chocolate. It is truly awe-inspiring. We see beautiful paper cuts everyday here at Luscious Verde, but maybe it just never sinks in to how detailed our work is. It’s looking at Matthew’s pages in Real Simple to really reflect on what we do here and the level at which we create.
