This week we are bringing back Toast to Type for a special summertime libatinon! Cassandra LaValle of the blog Coco+Kelley recently mixed up this refreshing and beautiful cocktail and we blushed when we saw she’d accessorized it with our Typographers Cocktail Napkins!!

Based on one of her favorite memories of summer in Washington state – cherries, this cocktail deliciously combines Lillet and gin to create a tart yet sweet treat that we could see ourselves sipping on a particularly warm Summer evening!

Get the Look: Preppy-Chic Wedding Style

It’s summer and love is in the air! We can attest to this as wedding invites on what seems like every weekend! From wine country affairs to destination weddings in tropical locales, we have been to many beautiful weddings this season. Yet, no matter how many nuptuials we attend, we always find ourselves asking: what is the perfect gift?!

It can be difficult to find THE gift the newlyweds. Something personal and meaningful and avoiding the easy (but overdone) kitchen appliance. That’s where we can help! Our monogrammed gifts are modern, yet timeless and will out last any trendy decor. By picking from a curated selection of chic modern fonts you know you’ll find something with universal appeal. No matter if the happy coulple’s style is classic, preppy, modern, or rustic chic we’ve got  you covered!

Trend set while you jet set!

We are daydreaming of beautiful locales with breathtaking views and letting our cares just slip faaar far away!

With all of of the globe trotting ahead, we are making sure we have all of the essentials for simple and chic travels. The Elisabetta bag is fabulous for holding all of you daily necessities while on a plane, train or just in your car!  It is trés chic paired with any ensemble you may be wearing while exploring the many corners of the world!

Trés Chic Monogram Moment

We love typography, specially when it is edible, and it looks like we’re not the only ones! We were pleasantly surprised when we came across these delectable monogrammed cookies! We knew we had to have these trés chic monograms immediately!

Lucky for us, they came with instructions on how to recreate these typography inspired treats!

This is a DIY both our kids, and our tastebuds, can get behind! With only a few tools you can be on your way to making these font based cookies! Simply whip up a batch of your favorite sugar cookie dough and get typing!

Free Font Friday

After enjoying last week’s long holiday weekend, we are graciously welcoming Friday with open arms, aren’t you?! And what better way to kick a much needed weekend with another Free Font: Antrokas!

Antrokas is not like your grandmother’s calligraphy (sorry grandma!). It contains exaggerated round curves and angular direction that mimics a gliding hand lettered style.

It is a flowy, modern font that is great for packaging, display or decorative purposes. For example, we’d gladly use this font in place of handwritten calligraphy for invitations or envelopes. We are keeping this one in our font bank for those special occasions that require a bit of finesse and the delicate touch that (even faux) calligraphy provides!
