Lime Canary and Red Ribbon Studio

This summer I had the great pleasure of working with the super talented Maribeth of Red Ribbon Studio. We created an inspiration shoot showcasing Lime Canary pieces in all their rustic elegant glory. It was seriously the perfect June day for a photo shoot at the Round Barn in Red Wing, MN. The grounds of the Round Barn are beautiful, and there were tons of great places to shoot. We were also lucky to have Jackie from Munster Rose graciously provide her talents on florals. She did a phenomenal job! Another thank you to the Little White Dress for providing the wedding dress, and Flutter Boutique for the beautiful plum bridesmaids dress. Finally, thanks to models Kate and Steven for hanging out with us for the day! See the full shoot here. Enjoy!

How Do you Use That? Card Catalogs

Hello, lovely people! We're starting a new column called How Do You Use That (HDYUT)? HDYUT will showcase awesome Lime Canary accessories, paired with creative ways to use them. First up...Card Catalogs! 

As we've mentioned before, we're ridiculously in love with these gems of the past. Their sweet little drawers are perfect for so many uses. Meet the Lime Canary Stars of the Week:


Now, onto some creative ways to use these guys...

...As great escort card holders and displays. I think guests feel a little nostalgic when they go to the drawers and find their name.
...As unique containers for floral arrangements. I love the elegance of beautiful peonies, roses, and ranunculus mixed with the rustic, institutional card catalogs

...As a creative way to house a "Candy Bar" or other guest favors.

Seriously, the uses for these little guys are endless! Let Lime Canary help you incorporate some vintage card catalog love into your next event!

Time to Bust out the Holiday Spirit!

I LOVE the holidays! They are such a great time of year. Everyone is so cheery and there's lots of exciting things going on. Oh, and don't forget about eggnog...What a strangely, delicious drink. Christmas is a great time to bust out some vintage touches. Whether you're setting a table or making decorations, vintage makes everything better.

I love old books and book pages. Here's a couple great ways to put those old dusty pages to use:

These sweet little tags would be great name cards, or you could shoot to achieve best wrapper status by putting these gems on your presents.
I've always really enjoyed monochromatic design schemes. White and silvers are such an elegant combination for the holidays. 

 Old shutters make for a great way to showcase all your Christmas cards. I never like to throw them away, so this is an intersting way to put them on display.

Mason jars have been all over the wedding decor scene. Here's another use for those multi-functional little guys.
It's time to bust out the holiday spirit and enjoy the season!

We love vintage trunks! They have so many great uses, and we like to imagine all the treasures that have been stored in them over the years. We're quite certain you need to incorporate these little gems into your event ASAP. Vintage trunks pack a serious punch of character and there are so many creative ways to use them. Our trunk representatives are Henry, and his lady friend Hildegard, they would love to spiff up your event!

Lime Canary at the Depot

This summer I had the pleasure of working with Melissa and Patrick, a great couple, with a beautiful vision for their wedding at The Depot. The super talented Amys of MiMi Design designed the event and used Lime Canary to pump up the vintage in a great historic space. Here's just a few of the photos taken by the wonderful Andrew Vick. Enjoy!
