Mad Love

Monday, January 14, 2013

We often tell our customers who are looking for a place to start to find one piece that they love and build off of that. 

We were reminded of our own advice when we came across this great set of screen printed napkins at a gallery night in Madison this past October. Jeff and I immediately loved the napkins and had to buy some kitchen towels in the same design for our own house. Local artist, Rosy Hawbaker, owner of ReCreative Crafts (http://www.etsy.com/shop/RecreativeCrafts) makes these along with oodles of other Madison and Wisconsin themed tshirts and baby onsies. One of my favorites is her "Made Locally" baby onesie (http://www.etsy.com/listing/82843863/wisconsin-onesie-made-locally)…makes me chuckle every time I see it. ;

What I was getting to is that we loved them so much we decided we wanted to design a wedding tablescape around them for the 2013 Wedding Planner and Guide Winter Bridal Show! The show was this past weekend and I thought I would share with you our thought process, the finished product and at the end of this post, some exciting news! 

Here are the napkins that started the idea:
