event lettering

jeepers, two posts in one day? i’m on a kick, and i can’t help it. plus i’m smacking myself upside the head for not yet sharing with you the hand lettered hors d’ouevres signs i created for the random house holiday party this past december.  my dear friend kate requested my services, and i was only all too happy to oblige (ecsatic really; spending hours with a ruler and fine tip sharpie made me a very cheerful girl).

wonderful party-planner that she is, kate decided to name the hors d’ouevres after some of the amazing, hilarious and award-winning books that little random published in 2009.  see if you can guess any of the real titles below:

    Love this post, Jills- and love the signs you made for the party! They were absolutely perfect and we sent photos of them to the authors so they could see the inspired appetizers!
