As soon as we laid our eyes on photos from the fun event you’re about to see, we knew we had to share it here on GWS. Because once you check out all the goodness from Flipbooth + Underwood Letterpress’ first anniversary bash (captured by Stephanie Collins Photography), you’ll likely agree that the bevy of amazing ideas they incorporated can translate seamlessly to a wedding or event of any kind!
Since the two companies have shared a studio at The Unique Space in Downtown Los Angeles’ arts district for a year (YEAH!), they wanted to celebrate with an anniversary party for some industry friends! Carly Rae Weddings designed the raddest setting: going for a vintage circus-slash-carnival themed vibe. Stephanie from Flipbooth shares lots more below (and throughout the post) so we can all join in on the whimsy + fun!
Underwood Letterpress set the tone by creating invitations featuring copper foil, vintage flocking for the backing, and carnival inspired tickets. Bright pink liners and World’s Fair era vintage postage finished off the envelopes. Design highlights included a hot air balloon and lounge areas from Found Rentals, a donut wall, calligraphy by Anne Robin, and brass hoops draped with colorful florals by Primary Petals.
This vintage hot air balloon basket is a detail worth lingering on for a minute…
The party featured lots of stylish + cozy seating vignettes filled with great furniture + gorgeous florals.
Fun desserts are always a must!
More from Stephanie, There was not one, but two Flipbooth photo booths – one printing flipbooks and one printing old school style photostrips. Cocktail Academy and Rebel Coast Winery served up some libations in fancy vintage glassware from Borrowed Blu. Playful treats from Heirloom LA included lobster corn dogs and mini chicken and waffles. It wouldn’t be a circus without Bon Puf cotton candy and Hannah’s Bananas. Guests boogied the night away with Dart DJ and got their faces painted by Heidi Lynn Makeup Artistry. Wes the Magician and Zor the fire-performer completed the entertainment lineup!
