Wow! What a pleasure working with this couple! Right from the word go, I knew the end result of Tershia and Darius’ wedding invitations would be stunning. Oh and I am so glad my gut feeling was right!
We created an awesome 2 colour letterpress invitation (taking little snippets from other Seven Swans stationery Tershia liked), lovingly printed by The Letterpress Co and accompanied by handcrafted tissue-lined envelopes. To save on costs the additional components were printed digitally and all tied up with a belly band announcing “you are invited”! We LOVE it!
I think I have finally made peace with the fact that after Summer (those magic months when days seem to last forever, watermelon and white wine is all you ever crave and every day is a summers dress day) must come Autumn. I guess it’s not all bad. When I think of it, it’s actually not that bad at all… for one, we can drink coffee again (without having to jump in a swimming pool straight after!), I can start wearing my lovely collection of beloved scarves… oh, and with colours like these, I might just fall right in love with Autumn!

We have been absolutely through-through-the-roof excited to share this little something we have been working on together with the fabulous Bianca from Lucky No9 and the wonderful Pretty Blog girls. Seven Swans will proudly support The Pretty Blog in hosting two Kids Workshops at this year’s Design Indaba! Woohoo!
We got our craft on and will be showing designers of the future, crafters in the making and anyone who likes a good party, just how easy and fun it can be to spice up their own party with custom decor items and props. The workshops promise to be full of interaction as we take you through a few ideas to liven up any event (AND there will be “take home” goodies too!).
The workshops will be on Saturday 27 February : 16:00-18:00 and Sunday 28 February 13:00-15:00
For booking and more information contact Paul Vicars. T: +27 21 465 9966 E: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, event and number of places required. We are looking forward to meeting you!
What a pleasure it has been to work with Mari-Leen on these sophisticated wedding invitations, for their vintage pink and taupe wedding on her father’s farm in De Doorns. Mari-Leen has great style and a keen eye for detail - perfect for some lasercutting loveliness! We love the subtle touch of vintage!
Yesterday’s DIY was inspired by a fun birthday party held for a very lucky boy. You see, last year a cute little email popped into my inbox from Vanessa de Villiers. She was busy planning a dinosaur party for her 3 year old son and needed some help with the stationery - how fun!?!? Of course we would help! What can be cooler than spending your morning drawing up dinosaurs clinching bunting in their teeth?
We made an electronic email invitation to save on cost and created a few different labels which Vanessa could easily print at home. She attached these to straws, cocktail bottles (for the grown ups!) and even had a label attached to her desert-in-a-jar. We just LOVE these photos, mommy-cum-photographer, Vanessa took of the day!
We told you, we have been dreaming up creamsoda and marshmellow filled days! Well I guess its because we have been busy putting these cutesy FREE PRINTABLES together for our Pretty Blog readers. From customisable party invitations (both in English and Afrikaans), to straw flags, cupcake toppers and colour paper to do with what you please (bunting or paper napkins, even giftwrap perhaps?), you can click here to get them for FREE.
In the hope of summer staying just a little bit longer before autumn sets in, we bring you this gorgeous colour palette. Reminds me of cream soda and marshmellows, streaks of afternoon sunshine and belly laughs. Lovely! I can just imagine a bright baby shower or little girls’ tea party in these colours!
