helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

“Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies.
I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”
-Joe Fox, You've Got Mail

Ever since I heard that quote I always thought getting a bouquet of pencils would be the sweetest thing ever! In fact, I was pretty disappointed that Tom Hanks' character gave Meg Ryan's character daisies and NOT pencils like he had previously mentioned in the movie!! As an artist and lover of office supplies, I think it would be so fun to incorporate pencils into your big day. Whether as favors, save the dates, centerpieces or the bouquet- they would make a unique addition to your wedding! Even better, it's affordable- you can get pencils for super cheap at your local dollar store!
