salutations stationery {inspiration nook}

Happy Wednesday {and Halloween}! The older that I get, the more I actually enjoy this holiday. Having a day of perfectly acceptable "dress up" as an adult has become more and more appealing.

So, trick-or-treat and all that jazz. Now, on with the post...

A few months ago, I was asked by Jessica at Salutations Fine Stationery and Gifts to create an inspiration nook for their store.  Of course I graciously agreed and was given the look of vintage/shabby chic. The challenge was to incorporate props as well as photos and other items to make a cohesive look within a 3 feet wide by 2 feet deep space.  

With the space restrictions, I had to get a little creative {and crafty}, but I think it came together pretty well. Also, a very special thanks to The Schultzes Photography for providing the photos and to The Bloom Room for providing props and more succulence than this girl could even imagine!

Here are some photos {thanks again to my trusty iphone and Instagram love-- follow me at amarkey24} of the nook. I used one of my September weddings as inspiration as I felt like it fit the theme perfectly. More coming on that wedding soon!


If you are in the market for save the dates, invites or other paper needs, please check out Salutations and tell em' Favor Me Events sent you.

with love.
