Real Celebration: Lodge Event

We know spring fever has sprung, however, let us not forget it is still officially winter. We hope there is not {too much} more snow in store for us, but we haven't exactly put away the gloves and hats just yet. Here is an elegant, yet wintry and somewhat rustic evening event we recently worked on here in Basalt, Colorado. Guests from Aspen to New York flew in for this celebration - you might just spot a few famous names amongst the escort cards and menu cards we created. Look for the beautiful paper goods among the rich and colorful details.

  4. RESOLUTION. Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
  5. FRUGALITY. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.
  6. INDUSTRY. Lose no time; be always employ’d in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
  7. SINCERITY. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.

  11. TRANQUILLITY. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
  12. CHASTITY. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dulness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.
  13. HUMILITY. Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
