We wanted to share the stunning holiday table Little Green Notebook put together a couple years ago for the holidays! It still feels fresh and it is one of our favorites to this day!

Forgoing the usual red & green motif, Jenny went with a vibrant array of jewel tones! A mix of saturated hues and pastels is a modern take on Christmas colors, we love the fresh perspective!

The blue china is paired perfectly with the blue monogrammed napkins! The modern monogrammed font contrasts the traditional china beautifully!

Toast To Type: The Gingerbread Martini

However, this holiday season we decided to put more of a grown up twist on our favorite treat. Served up in a martini glass or in our French Medallion Glass, a Gingerbread Martini is perfect for slowly sipping at your next holiday party! Glassware monogrammed with the flirty and sophisticated Shelley Allegro font makes a sweet and sassy play on the naughty but nice cocktail.

Toast To Type: The Dark & Stormy

She added a twist to the traditional recipe with unexpected ingredients. In place of the lime, she added in a tart lemon squeeze. Getting creative, she added in ginger for a zing and to keep warm in the Fall chill. Lastly, some thyme for subtle earthy, herbal undertones.

Design Double Take

Beautiful, serene and content. Looking at this gorgeous image we felt all these things! A peaceful moment was captured and then enhanced with scrolling calligraphy and a thought-provoking quote. We love the way the words flow like thoughts and follow the contours of the subject!

Part of the Silhouettes Project was started as a way for hand letterer Pommel Lane to be more free flow with her lettering. As part of the project she selects images of anything, people, things in nature, something she sees on a daily walk and applies her wonderful lettering technique to it. We think it is a gorgeous project and we can’t wait to see more lovely lettered silhouettes!
