Grad Announcements And Gallery Wall Reveal

Happy Thursday everyone! My graduation announcements arrived in the mail and I am SO excited about how they turned out. I was worried that things weren't going to be centered or that the colors would be funky because I chose a bad photo (I opted out of having them double checked by a designer), but they look amazing. 


I chose this design that felt very 'me,' bright with lots of white and gold. I wanted my announcements to be simple as well, and I'm glad I found exactly what I was looking for! These designs are from Minted, and they had TONS of different designs to choose from!

I also recently set up my gallery wall, and had a few pieces from Minted as well. I figured I would share that on the blog today too. I wanted to have a lot of gold, bright colors, and things that inspired me. It's not all that expansive right now, however I hope to add more to it in the near future!


Hello Sign: Michaels, extremely similar | Large Gold Frame (similar) | Pink Painting by me | Small Gold Frames from the dollar store! | Paris Print | Gold Map of New Orleans 

I've been meaning to put up this gallery wall for about 2 years now, so I'm really excited to finally be moving forward with it! It also seems that everything kind of fell into place with it these past few months. I somehow found everything I needed to create the image I had in my head easily, after two years of being stubborn with it. The hello sign was on super clearance at Michaels, the large gold frame was in a random place in target and was both one of its kind and on clearance. And the two small gold frames were found at my local dollar store! Everything worked out perfectly!

Do you have a gallery wall? I would love to see it!
