Fabulous Friday: Envelopments Invitation Collection

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all have had a fabulous week! Thank you all for all of the love you have been showing The Laurels! I can’t tell you how much it means to us and it makes our day!

I know all of you know that we are wedding stationery designers and offer custom wedding invitations, programs and so much more. Sometimes we talk about our wedding design so much on the blog that I feel like our invitations get put on the back burner. They are at the very heart of our business and we wouldn’t be where we are today without our love for making the perfect invitation for each and every one of our Brides & Grooms.

K & K is the leading Envelopments dealer in Southeast Texas and their papers and designs are always at the leading edge of stationery trends.  We are proud to be able to offer our clients these unique papers and graphics ranging from soft and romantic to exotic and colorful.  Their 2014 line has been one of my favorites so far. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Fabulous Friday: Laurels Construction Update

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe that August is half way over and kids are heading back to school! Time flies.  Last week’s Q&A post had everyone talking and everyone begging for more pictures.  I love watching the construction progress and go to The Laurels every day and see what all is happening. It is so exciting and makes us so happy that you all are just as excited as we are!

The framing was just about halfway done on the last picture update that we did so you won’t believe your eyes when you see it now.

Here is the front of The Laurels, this is facing Calder Ave.

And the first picture of the inside, part of the ballroom.

It is coming along quite nicely!  All of our windows are in and the doorways are being trimmed out and prepped for the doors. The siding should be done today and there are workers everywhere inside working on the sprinkler system, electrical and HVAC.  It will be ready for fabulous events before we know it!

Boss 1 & 2 are always at The Laurels to make sure everything stays on track too, and to bring the workers doughnuts.

Fabulous Friday: The Laurels Q & A

Happy Friday everyone! We are getting lots of calls and emails about The Laurels as construction progresses so I thought we could use this weeks post to answer some of the most popular questions we are getting.  So here we go…….. The-Laurels-Logo-with-leaves Can other planners, coordinators, decorators use The Laurels?  Absolutely!  Even though The Laurels is the official home of K & K designs we welcome all vendors that we have worked with before and we look forward to working with and meeting vendors that are new to us!

Will K & K designs continue to plan, coordinate and design events away from The Laurels?  Yes, we have numerous events scheduled for 2015 and beyond outside of The Laurels.  We book on a first come first served basis whether it be at The Laurels or another venue of our clients choosing.

Will The Laurels offer catering?  No, but we have a list of excellent caterers in the area that we work with on a regular basis that we can refer to anyone using The Laurels.

Will tables and chairs be included?  Yes, we will have round tables and a limited number of rectangular tables for the ballroom and the rental of the venue will include the use of our chiavari chairs.

What kind of spaces do we have?  Intimate dining and parlor spaces for parties, showers, brunches and rehearsal dinners.  We will have a ballroom seating 200-250 for larger events that opens up to an interior lighted courtyard with a fireplace and bar area that can be used in conjunction with the ballroom for even more seating.  We will also have an intimate smaller courtyard that will make for great photo opportunities and those sweet first look photo sessions.

Can we take our bridal, engagement and other photos on the grounds of The Laurels? The Laurels will be available for photo shoots to any of our Brides that have the venue booked for their big day. Arrangements must be made and scheduled in advance so as not to conflict with any of our other events.  If you are not a Laurels Bride, have your photographer contact us and we will see if we can work something out! :)

Will you have a place for the wedding party to get dressed at The Laurels? Yes! After all, The Laurels is where sophisticated style meets gracious entertaining! We have a Bridal Suite that is reserved for the Bride and her wedding party and a Bridal brunch can be arranged for the day of your big event.  We also have a parlor that can be completely closed off for the Groom and his guys to relax in before it is time to say I DO!

When can we start booking our event at The Laurels? NOW!!!! The Laurels is now booking for Summer of 2015 and beyond. We already have several events on the roster so call us before your date is gone.  409-225-0712
