Our Adele invitations were recently spotted on Rocky Mountain Bride! Wedding planner Isabelle Kline selected romantic design elements with Spanish flair for this inspiration shoot at Rancho Ricardo Villa and Gardens. The rich red florals on the invitations were mimicked on the tall centerpieces, which were overflowing with lush greenery. Metallic accents were also sprinkled throughout, adding a glamorous touch to the rustic, Spanish-style villa. Head over to Rocky Mountain Bride to see more photos from the shoot!

If you’ve been by the Bella Figure flagship store recently, you’ve seen our sweet collaboration with Madison Lee’s Cakes: invitation inspired cakes! We worked with Madison to create a collection of cakes inspired by some of our invitations, opting for a few modern styles for one half of the window, and a selection of floral designs for the other. Madison recreated our English Garden design by Chelsea Petaja in cake form with hand painted watercolor florals that look just like the invitation! Our Adele design by Ellie Snow inspired a second cake, with handmade sugar flowers adorning the top and piped gold florals cascading down the sides.
The more modern side of the window features our geometric Briolette design by Ellie Snow, our on-trend, marbled Onyx design by Jamie Lea Bertsch, and our ever-popular confetti inspired Joie de Vivre by Kamal. The Joie de Vivre cake includes hundreds of hand cut, hand painted gold sugar confetti pieces!
And last, but certainly not least, our entryway display! Madison created a petite cake modeled after the sea-side Vincent customization we created for the spring 2016 issue of New York Weddings magazine, with a watercolor effect and splashes of metallic gold.
Interested in seeing the cakes in person? Visit our flagship store in New York City from now through May 20th! The shop is open every day from 11am – 7pm and is located at 1031 Lexington Avenue (at 74th Street).
Max celebrated his eightieth birthday with a black tie celebration at The Lotus Club in New York City, one of the oldest literary clubs in the United States. The foil and letterpress birthday party invitations were inspired by our Adele design and printed in black and french vanilla letterpress inks and copper shine foil to compliment the timeless elegance of the venue’s decor.

Many thanks to Inside Weddings for the spotlight!
We recently had the pleasure of participating in Martha Stewart’s 2016 Wedding Party, an amazing bridal show produced by Claudia Hanlin and our friends at The Wedding Library for New York City brides and grooms. The event took place at Gotham Hall on a sunny Sunday morning, just a few hours after the travel ban was lifted after the historic winter storm Jonas. The Wedding Party had bands playing throughout the day, delicious cake tastings, a variety of venues and registry options, talented florists and event designers, models floating about in gorgeous wedding gowns, travel coordinators for dreamy honeymoon destinations — and those were just a few of the different types of vendors attendees had the opportunity to visit with. Bella Figura calligrapher Debi Zeinert had a table next to us, offering on the spot calligraphy and giving everyone a personalized memento to take home. Fleurs NYC provided us with beautiful fresh flowers for our event displays, which featured new designs from our 2016 collection and some of our bestsellers. Take a peek at our display!
We worked with Hercules Candy Company, a Syracuse-based chocolate shop, to create custom chocolate bars that we printed labels for (featuring artwork from our new Adele design!) to give out as a treat to attendees. We worked with another Syracuse company – the Black Arts Studio – to create our a beautifully printed table runner for the event as well.
Martha Stewart and Darcy Miller gave a talk at the beginning of the event, and made the rounds to see all of the different vendors – including us! It was an honor to meet Martha and have her check out our newest designs — definitely the highlight of the event.
