  1. Ohhh! I luuuurve those invitations. Had a quick peek on Etsy and I could’ve bought a few of this lady’s creations! Does anyone have any experience of getting invitation suites done in the U.S.? It sounds stressful to me, or perhaps that’s just me being a wimp!

  2. Hi Catrin, I had mine done in the US – not to bad – I’d just say start early in case of design glitches, it takes time to approve etc and then obviously get them shipped. There’s massive savings to be had tho on Etsy.

    Yes Fliss – hope I got it right, it’s a gorgeous scheme, so sophisticated. There’s loads of cushions around like that at the moment if you wanted to add them in and your invites are perfect.

    Anyone else for Grey and Peach?


  3. @Catrin – This lady’s invites were one of the main inspirations for our colours. If I remember rightly (it was a while ago now), I emailed her and she said there was no problem with shipping to the UK, and everything could be done online until shipping. But like Rebecca said, deifnitely allow extra time etc…

  4. I blame Rebecca wholeheartedly for my Etsy obsession! I didn’t know it existed until she mentioned it way back when and I thank her for it every night in my ‘let’s pray to the god of all things pretty’ prayers… Mmmm, pretty stuff…

  5. I too am now an Etsy addict because of RMW! LOVING the peach. I want it with gold and bronze…just don’t know if I can get away with it in October…

  6. Looks nice..but can I be really annoying? To me blush is blush as opposed to peach, ie a colour in its own right. I would have loved to have seen a modern zingy orangey peach with cool greys..

    …unless I am peaking too soon and that is to follow?!

  7. I think a punchier shade of peach or apricot would really work with these greys too….they can carry almost any shade off.

    And Tracy M – you can totally get away with peach, gold and bronze in October….perfect autumnal hues!

  8. Hi ladies…

    controversy again! Peach week has certainly had lots of that.

    Totally agree, orange in whatever form, and lets face it, unless we’re being colour snobs here, peach is basically a paler orange, just like pink can be pale red… would go brilliantly with Grey. I’m having a thing at the moment about clashing tones, so for example a lemon yellow with bright turquoise blue, cerise or raspberry pink with a pale sage green or in this case bright orange with pale grey.

    And Tracy – your colours sound gorgeous – very last days of summer/harvest festival.

    Re: ‘Blush’
    You know what? Sometimes we just have to make it sound good 😉


  9. Ooh yes Rebecca, I love orange and fuchsia clashing combo in a Moroccan stylee too. It shouldn’t work but totally does.

    Blush, pale coral and even grenadine have all been terms I’ve used at work to basically describe some shade of peach… The eighties has a lot to answer for!
