Scene: Cara (that’s me!) dusting off furniture, polishing mirrors, and arranging invitations just so.

Phew! I made it. The walls have been moved around, the paint swatches chosen with care, and the windows are open wide to let the sun shine in.

What you see is a more chic, easier to navigate and lovely site ready to greet my prospective clients.

It’s been fun reinventing my Pamplemousse identity. Most exciting is the creation of this new blog. I can’t wait to share all my ideas with you! Yes, I create custom invitations. But as owner and creator of all items Pamplemousse, I am often thinking about the whole event, not just invites you send to you guests.

With that in mind, I intend this blog to reach beyond the paper with the printed word, for weddings, babies and other events. Here’s a glimpse of what you might expect to find here:

Trendspotting: What’s hot and new- colours, styles, products- and how to incorporate them into your invites and your events.

In Studio: What’s happening at Pamplemousse. A peek into my world- how your invitations are created, from brainstorming to finished product. Stay tuned for a glimpse into my studio.

Friends and Colleagues: I want to share with you the work of other artists who I admire who create beautiful crafted work. Also, it will be my pleasure to showcase the work of others with whom I work closely.

Design Ideas: I base my work largely in what is happening in the greater design and art worlds. Furniture, architecture and fashion are my inspirations. From time to time I’ll post about what influences and excites me.

And of course: invitations, invitations and more invitations.

So: welcome. Come in, look around, make yourself at home. And please feel free to add any suggestions of what you would like to see featured in my blog.
