La Fête d’Amour: A Parisian Masquerade

Are you ready for an Inspired Creations Contest submission that’s full of color and Parisian style?  Courtney Callahan of Courtney Callahan Paper, Natalie Walsh of Hello Darling, and Jenn Gaudreau of Jennifer Kathryn Photography are behind this vibrant shoot, inspired by a European masked ball.  The color palette of teal, green, orange, and sparkly gold and bronze is so rich and vivid, and I adore the original and exotic florals with metallic foliage, Israeli ruscus, magnolia, chick pea, kale, and peacock feathers.  Lovely stationery and DIY projects such as personalized dance cards for each guest, a ribbon garland, and hanging “bride and groom” wreaths are just a few of the beautiful touches that make this concept unique – and believe it or not, all of what you see below was created on a budget of only $337!













The team was kind enough to provide tutorials for several of their DIY projects, including the L’Amour de ma vie banner, the mask, chair swags, and wreath signs, so check back today for how-tos and printables!
