Place Cards by Emily Denis

Places Everyone, Places

I love the holiday season – those fancy get togethers, those glamorous parties, the family and friends, the laughter – the time to spend with my most favorite people. This year I was asked to create place cards for a little informal Halloween luncheon.

Step One: Choose a script that matches the tone of the event. Using a bouncy informal Copperplate inspired script, I hand wrote the names of attendees until I got the letters and names just the way I wanted them.

Step Two: Watercolor a handful of loose pumpkins. A little orange, green and yellow playfully matched to capture the light hearted pumpkin on a vine feeling.

Step Three: Add a little definition to the pumpkins. Some fun ribs and flirty little vines spice up the form of the pumpkin.
