Not surprisingly, January is considered the beginning of “Wedding Season.” The reason: Many a love-sick beau decides to pop the question during the holidays.

Stationery for Him & Her
They’ll be married, but they’ll still be individuals. Personalized stationery with monograms that express their individual style are the perfect gift for the couple who are totally into each other but totally independent, too.
Last week, we had the pleasure of being invited to be part of the Lenox Wedding Planner Tour.
Our mission, should we have chosen to accept it (which we did, of course): Provide the invitations that would serve as the inspiration for the Design Challenge.
The challenge: Choose one of our wedding invitations and design a dinner table around it.
The planners were spread out among several properties (the Appletree Inn, Winthrop Estate, Seven Hills Inn, Gateways Inn, Rookwood Inn and Garden Gables Inn) around Lenox, Massachusetts, which is nestled in the heart of the Berkshires.
We were asked to hold court over the Winthrop Estate designers: Annie Lee from Daughter of Design, Krista Njapa of C&G Weddings and Ariella Chezar of Ariella Flowers. Below are a few photos that show off the Crane & Co. invitations they chose on the tables they beautifully designed.
