Parcel Post for Brooklyn Bride [no. 24]

We recently brought on a new calligrapher at Urbanic that I’m pretty excited about. Her name is Molly Thorpe (such a great name right?) and her line is called Plurabelle. I’m loving her artsy cool vintage style. This is definitely the type of mail that’s jaw dropping even for the postal workers I’m sure!

I have a few more pictures of Molly’s work up on Parcel Post. … and by the way, we also now have a fun new vintage postage stamping service that I can’t wait to tell you about. Until next time…. *A

Real wedding: Raakhee + Agan

In case you didn’t follow my tweets last weekend, I spent the holiday weekend at my dear friend Raakhee’s wedding!  These pictures are by no means professional in any sense, but since I had never attended an Indian wedding, I just had to share some with you!  I was so impressed with the sense of tradition and ritual in the ceremony and even down to the dances at the reception the next day, but my favorite part had to be the colors!  I’m so used to seeing weddings stay relegated to 2, maybe 3 colors, but here we were immersed in every color of the rainbow, and they all worked so beautifully together.

Congrats Raakhee & Agan!

There were bracelet and bindi “bars” where guests could load up on color and jewels…

A quiet moment among us bridesmaids…

The groom’s side wore turquoise turbans, and the brides side wore orange.  What a combo!

For the reception, Raakhee changed out of the pink sari her mother wore for her own wedding and into this stunning Naeem Khan peacock gown!

Book review: Flowers Chic & Cheap

Normally when I get a book to review, I don’t always post about it because it doesn’t fit my audience, but I was pleasantly surprised at the new book by Elle Decor editor at large Carlos Mota, with Rita Konig and photos by William Waldron.  Its amazingly versatile with great tips on putting together arrangements with flowers from your own yard or market.  Beautifully styled and photographed, I could see so many of the ideas used for modern weddings!  Check it out at your bookstore if you get a chance…its a good one!

I especially liked these arrangements in coffee mugs with grass…why didn’t I think of that??
