Y’all already know my Bespoke, By Brittany Branson stationery designs are completely inspired by YOU! Your love story is my ultimate inspiration. I then use my paints to make it oh so pretty on paper. Today, though LONG overdue, I’m taking you behind the scenes of the process and inspiration I used to create this stunning stationery suite inspired by classic delft floral patterns and The White Sparrow Barn, an incredible venue out in Quinlan, Texas just outside of the Dallas/Fort Worth area!
The White Sparrow Barn venue is just too pretty NOT to paint. I immediately knew the barn would be making quite a few appearances in this invitation suite. Of course, I was all sorts of giddy when Heather, our wedding planner, sent me her inspiration board which happened to include a theme based on classic chinoiserie and delft, blue and white china patterns. A white barn amidst hand painted blue and white china patterns? It works!
I then hand painted a complete pattern of blue roses and branches. Even though you’ll see parts of the final invitation positioned the roses in different shapes, I wanted to paint them as a complete pattern so that the pattern could be used for other day of details!
Wouldn’t this pattern make for some cute, custom reception lounge pillows? Anyone??
Next, it was time to paint the amazing venue itself! The White Sparrow appeared twice in this invitation suite.
First, I painted the entire interior of the barn where the majority of ceremonies and receptions take place. I figured this would make a great back for the “details” or “accommodations” card. With useful information pertaining to where guests would be spending the day, the painting would be a welcome introduction!
And then, a little rendition of the exterior of the barn. How cute is this?
It was time to combine all of the hand painted elements!
I placed the lovely little exterior painting of the barn at the bottom of a 3/4 wreath made up of some of those roses and branches. This was the front of the main invitation card, with the back featuring a full print of the original roses painting so that guests could frame it and keep it!
It then made another appearance on the menus! This time, the little barn appeared floating on a bed of those lovely roses.
The roses were also printed on the back of the RSVP card, and made a little appearance on the back of the “details” card!
I hope you love this invitation suite as much as I loved painting it! With so many pretty and bespoke details, no guest will ever want to toss these beauties!
So many thanks to Luisa’s Secret Photography for all of the pretty, professional images! Check out more of this inspiration which was featured in a recent issue of Modern Luxury Weddings: Dallas!
