  • Antique Luck: A Rustic Letterpress Wedding Suite

    For those who are lucky in love, might we suggest Antique Luck, a wedding invitation suite from Bella Figura? RPS-Antique 3 The letterpress suite has a vintage western vibe, incorporating four-leaf clovers, horseshoe details and vintage inspired ribbon banners to create a swoonworthy suite, full of sophisticated country charm with a subtle Irish wedding twist. RPS-Antique1 RPS-Antique2 We love what Aimee O’Boyle (the designer behind the Antique Luck suite) had to say about her creative inspiration: “I am really quite fond of the idea of using old traditions in a wedding. While most people think of things like wearing a white wedding dress, not seeing the groom before the ceremony or having something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new, I like the idea of taking it a step further and including some lucky symbolism on the paper goods. Did you know that the four leaf clover petals represent faith, hope, love, and luck?  And did you also know that if you found an old horseshoe with nails still in it, the number of nails determines how many years of prosperous luck you will have? I think it’s really very sweet to add some “lucky” touches to the big day like this.” – Aimee O’Boyle, via the Bella Figura blog. We love pretty much everything about this suite and the inspiration behind it! If you’re interested in learning more about ordering the Antique Luck suite for your wedding, click here.

  • Celebrating St. Paddy's Day with RPS

    At RPS, we’re all about celebrating everything – so it should come as no surprise that we enjoy getting into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. Whether it’s hosting a party, making an awesome Irish meal or just grabbing a pint of green beer, there’s plenty of great ways to celebrate. As luck would have it, we’ve had our eyes on a few items inspired by the season. Check out our round up below, and have an awesome St. Patrick’s Day! RPS-St.Paddy Blog Photos 1) A little luck can go a long way! This letterpress card from 1Canoe2 features a beaaaaauuutiful hand-drawn illustration of a horseshoe and 4-leaf clovers, perfect for sending good vibes and well wishes! 2) Go for the gold with this good luck card from Rifle Paper Co. Card features a large four-leafed clover printed swoon-worthy gold metallic foil. 3) I can’t quite get on board with a St. Patrick’s Day celebration without a ‘lil booze. This adorable “Good O’ Whiskey Drink” is a perfect small glass for mixing it up. 4) Hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party? Customizable invitations from Boatman Geller are the perfect way to spread the word. Take it to another level with matching plates and platters! Did someone just say hostess with the most-est? 5) Speaking of parties… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: a party ain’t a party without stripey straws. Grab a set in green and white to get your party started! (Green straws are available in a chevron pattern as well!) 6) Another perfect party item, the Coton Colors Leprechaun Hat attachment is an easy way to decorate your table for holiday fun! Choose a platter size (I’m partial to the tan and white dot pattern myself) and collect attachments to swap in and out for any number of holidays and occasions. 7) Speaking of table settings, the green dot pattern from Coton Colors is a great way to tie in your festive food table – including cute napkins and a small spreader for dip.
