Sweet on This Beautiful New Invitation Collection

Llama Love digital invitations from Greenvelope and Sogi's Honey Bakeshop

For our sweetest collaboration yet, we partnered with the incredibly talented artist/baker Sogoal Zolghardi to bring you an eclectic Sogi’s Honey Bakeshop mini-collection. From the moment we saw Sogoal’s edible watercolor-painted masterpieces, we just knew that we had to showcase how her incredible work could complement all of life’s special moments. Cookies and parties, is there anything more you could want?! Okay, maybe champagne. Cookies, parties, and champagne. That’s all anyone needs in life.

From beginning to end, this entire partnership has been so collaborative, and together we have created sets of invitations and cookies that are simply meant to be. Keep scrolling to see the full collection! read more…
