We are thrilled to welcome Calluna Events to our North Boulder neighborhood and were honored when they asked us to create the invitations for their open house party. After printing their new letterpress business cards earlier this year, we were excited to collaborate with Heather and her team once again.
We wanted to create invitations that would show off Calluna’s chic new brand as well as introduce some of the fun details that guests would see when they arrived. The custom die cut shape of the cards was inspired by a mirror in the space and prepared guests for some classy fun. The grey ink and envelopes lent the same air of modern sophistication which presents itself upon entering Calluna’s new office and the chevron envelope liners were a nod to the big tufted ottoman that sits in the center of the room.
Here is the finished invitation along with some shots of the space that inspired them:
Now, on to the party! Memorable events are often the effort of many people collaborating. While the event was Calluna’s, vendors from all over Colorado came to make it beautiful and let their collective hair down for some low-key, high-beauty congratulations and welcome.
As people arrived, they were greeted by round balloons, smiling faces and fresh styling by Mile High Style. Seasonal florals surprised from every surface thanks to Brighter Day Floral Design. Visitors were invited to sample savory food from Catering by Design and tempted by artistically rendered dessert from Tee & Cakes. Boulder Wine Merchant provided some bubbly refreshment to match the mood while Pekoe Sip House offered beautifully packaged tea with which to wash everything down.
As if the setting wasn’t beautiful enough, everything was accented by the multi-hued outfits guests wore. The kaleidoscope effect created by colorful dresses and various textures served to parallel the way in which so many vendors came together to make this event a fun, creative collaboration.
Connie Dai Photography was kind enough to take these beautiful photographs of the evening. Take a look, be inspired, and get ready for the creative energy of Calluna Events to knock you off your feet.
