Kimber is an interior designer so she sent me all the specific details she wanted to include in her illustration and it all came together perfectly! Thank you so much Kimber!

Ashley Brooke Designs: Etiquette Blog

Hi there!!

I hope your Mondays are off to a great start!! We are really enjoying our vacation and having a wonderful time relaxing with family!!

I wanted to share with you this morning a new direction we are taking with our etiquette blog.  When we conducted our survey a couple of months ago I really concentrated on your feelings on the etiquette blog and compared them to how I feel about it and what my plans for it are.  I feel like this part of our blog has really gotten away from it’s original purpose and hasn’t allowed me to to really deliver the best, most relevant content.  Sometimes its a struggle to come up with topics that I feel are helpful and coincide with Ashley Brooke Designs.

My momma raised me right and taught me how to write thank you notes, throw showers and be a lovely Southern lady.  But that doesn’t necessarily make me an etiquette experts in all areas.  So I’m scaling back the blog to a post a week and really concentrating on those things I know best!  Which for the most part will be paper.  I hope this will really raise the bar in the content I do provide and that you’ll find it helpful above anything else!

When I return from vacay, we’ll get back on the etiquette train, so stay tuned!

Have a great week!

xoxo,

ABQ

Ashley Brooke Designs: A Family Affair!

Unique family stationeryunique family StationeryRecently I worked with the super sweet Kristen from Pineapple Grove Gifts to design a family illustration! First of all, can we just talk about how cute her kids are?!? Seriously, when she sent over the photos of her little ones I couldn’t stop cooing over them! They are adorable! We ended up doing custom stationery, stickers, an 8×10 print, and of course sticky notes! Anyway, it all turned out perfectly preppy! I hope you enjoy your new stationery and other ABD unnecessary necessities!!

Lots of love, AB

Our Summer Holiday : Road Trip

road trip

We are all packed up, Lucy included, and heading out tonight on our first road trip! I am beyond excited to spend the next week relaxing with my husband. We’ve been working around the clock (literally) so this vacation is much needed and perfect timing for the both of us, we couldn’t be more excited! We are heading to Blue Ridge, GA (to our family cabin) and then to Savannah, GA (a place neither of us have been!). So looking forward to swinging in hammocks, morning coffee over looking the mountains, afternoon board games, reading on the deck, and Firefly cocktails!

Hope you have a lovely week! I know we will!

Also, don’t worry! We will still be checking the inbox periodically so don’t hesitate to get in touch! xoxo- AB

Ashley Brooke Designs: A Southern Save The Date

Unique Save The Dates I am just in love with this pretty Southern Save the Date for a few reasons, one being the gorgeous cream + navy + pink color scheme, and the second one being that they are for someone very special to me and to ABD! I designed these save the dates for our sweet sweet Communications Director Betsy! Even through Betsy works with me I was so honored when she asked me to design all of the paper for her very special day! I have known Betsy for about 8 years now and I have known her fiance since I was in diapers, so this was such an honor. Their wedding is going to be full of Southern Charm and what a great way to start out their Wedding Invitation suite with silhouettes! I hand drew these silhouettes and just love the way the look came together!

Sending another BIG congratulations to Betsy & Luke!

Love you both!
