Earlier this month my sister, Jessica, opened a bakery in South Portland, Maine. She started her business, Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott over four years and we are all so proud of her for opening her own shop with her very own kitchen! She had a small open house for family and close friends to come visit the shop and sample all of the sweets.
I had the opportunty to help Jess with her menu board. She painted a large piece of wood with chalkboard paint then I went to town with chalk markers. It was a lot of fun and I am ready to do more. Who needs signage!?
I also have a little wall o' cards at her shop. Cupcakes and letterpress stationery. Win!
And what is a fabulous open house without a fabulous invitation? I designed and letterpress printed her an invitation for the event, which also included some more of my hand lettering for the word "Cupcakes." Love how it came out!
If you are in or around Southern Maine, be sure to visit Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott at 740 Broadway, Suite 200 in South Portland. You may also keep up with Jess's latest bakery and dessert news on her blog.
