Scottish Castle Styled Shoot

styled shoot, weddingRyann JarrardComment

I had the great pleasure of working with Casie from Thistle Wynd Productions to help bring her stationery vision to life for this STUNNING styled shoot that took place at Wardhill Castle in Scotland! I’m in love with all the fall colors and the deep jewel tones Casie chose for the palette. Every detail was perfectly captured by Liana of Liana Mitrea Wedding Stories.


We used deckled (hand torn) paper and I included an illustration of the castle on the invitation. Beautiful calligraphy provided by the uber talented Catrina of Camel and Birdie.

Pottery Barn | Thanksgiving Styled Shoot with Deckled Edge Tutorial

holidayRyann JarrardComment

I don't know about y'all, but I could pretty much live in a Pottery Barn store. So it was like my dream come true when Christina at Christina Leigh Events asked if I wanted to be a part of a Thanksgiving styled shoot she was planning for Pottery Barn!

When we designed this tablescape, we wanted to show that you can have an elegant Thanksgiving table without it feeling overly formal. Personalized place cards and menus for your guests make them feel extra special. Using organic floral arrangements and textured chargers and napkin rings add layers and depth to the setting which all come together for a warm and inviting table that your guests definitely won't want to leave!

Maggie with Bramble and Bee really knocked it out of the park with the arrangements - I love all the fall colors!

To accentuate the already gorgeous Thanksgiving place setting, I designed deckled edge (translation: torn edge) menus with cranberry wax seals. Keep scrolling for a quick tutorial on how to make your own deckled edge menus for Thanksgiving in just a few minutes!

Here's how YOU can make deckled edge cards right at home in three easy steps!

  1. Start with watercolor paper (like this) and PRINT your desired design before working on the edges

  2. Use a bone folder (found here) - this is an optional tool but SUPER helpful and a ruler to make a crease along the edge of the paper (see video below - don't mind the crooked line I made!) Fold the paper back and forth over the crease about 4 or 5 times.

  3. CAREFULLY tear the paper on the crease starting at the top. It should leave you with a gorgeous deckled edge!

For a fun touch, you can add a wax seal - I ordered mine from Get Marked and was really pleased with the quality. They also offer a wax spoon which makes things easier. This tutorial is very helpful in dealing with wax seals. A quick side note: if you want to re-use the seal or are worried about putting it directly on your project, you can stamp on wax paper, let the seal cool and then peel off and use double sided tape to adhere in the desired area!

PS aren't these marble place cards GORGEOUS?! You can usually source these at a local tile shop or on Etsy then have a local calligrapher (like Jenny!) letter on them!
