We were on TV! So excited to share our TV debut on NBC 10 Boston a few weeks ago with The Hub Today! We spent a day in April at Citrus & Salt in the Back Bay filming with NBC’s Anna Rossi and we had the absolute best time. Despite our shameless plugs and v extra celebrating everyone around us had to put up with, we actually lived in fear during the 2 week turnaround time at the thought of us appearing extremelyyyy awkward on camera. Turns out we did alright (margaritas help with both calligraphy and TV interviews), and major thanks to our girl Jo Louise Beauty for making us feel so glam that day! Check out our behind the scenes photos from this fun and memorable day and watch the feature herecitrus & salt back bay boston sip & script NBC 10

Easter weekend is here and I’m excited to share some decor inspiration for your Spring tables! I recently relocated to NH’s beautiful seacoast so tomorrow is going to be the first family gathering in our new spot. I’m looking forward to bringing Sip & Script to this area while Julie and Jess continue to spread the lettering love all around Boston!

Last weekend after collecting centerpiece flowers for our Gus & Ruby collaboration in Portland I was inspired to shoot some Spring table looks. Since the majority of my office goods and props are still in storage post-move, I wanted to source a few budget friendly pieces for an simple and fun tablescape. To start with some texture, I picked up some linen window panels at Christmas Tree Shop to use as draped fabric cascading of the table on each end. It was easy to hid the curtain rod hooks on each end by just folding them under the other panel in the center of the table. I also love getting candlesticks from Christmas Tree Shop because they have a great variety of unscented colored ones that don’t drip all over the table as they burn. 

The white geometric “bud vases” are actually tea light candle holders from The Dollar Tree turned upside-down. I picked up the tall white glass candle votives there and was pleasantly surprised with their selection of wrapping paper and tissue paper too! I ended up cutting some of the mint tissue paper for the place cards I set on each charger. 

Finally, the playful gingham and bunny plates and chargers (which I’ll be using all Spring and likely summer too!) I picked up from Michael’s, all of which were 40% off. Between the home decor, lettering goods, and the new Martha Stewart Celebrations party decor line, Julie really shouldn’t leave me unsupervised in there with our Sip & Script card! If you’re out and about today prepping for tomorrow hopefully some of these sources come in handy for you! Happy Easter everyone!

Running a side hustle can be a ton of work, but oh so worth it. Having a place to pursue your creative passion can be the bright spot of your week, especially for those in a desk day job you don’t particularly LOVE. There’s nothing better than coming home at the end of the day to switch gears and decompress with your nib, ink and a stack of envelopes (with a glass of rosé if you’re sip & script’ing correctly). We wanted one place to share some of what we have learned along the way, and hopefully inspire you to take that next leap!
