About MCC

Magnolia Creative Co. is an art and design studio that focuses on all things paper, paint and party. All of the designs are hand lettered or painted by Emily Welch with a focus on true Southern style. The company was named after Emily's first "fur baby" Magnolia. She was adopted as a puppy from a local shelter and lived to be almost 16 years. Magnolia Belle Ellis-Welch was a great friend and protector who had a passion for laying the sun, walking in the rain and chewing black, strappy heels. 

Magnolia Creative Co. has had the pleasure of being featured in print in Parenting Magazine and online from Amy Atlas EventsHostess with the MostessPizzazzerieCatch My PartyThe TomKat StudioKara's Party Ideas. Emily has had the pleasure of creating custom watercolors and illustrations for many clients including former first lady Laura Bush and her family and many local businesses. Emily's hand painted ceramics were also selected as a National Stationery Show product pick.

I believe that your foundation tells you where you begin, but not where you will end up. I believe family is there to help you along the way and the fun that you have is a perk of the journey. I believe that class, whimsey and a touch of charm never go out of style. I believe your love of the South defines you as much as your monogram and signature cocktail. I believe there is something to be said for a handwritten note and a printed party invitation and these should not be a part of the past but always in the present. Magnolia Creative Co. is rooted in these beliefs and the love of good paper, an endless paintbox of color and that every day can be a party. No matter what storm comes your way always, laissez les bon temps rouler!


Hi y'all! I'm Emily Welch, the founder and designer behind Magnolia Creative Co. I was born in New Orleans, raised in Baton Rouge and now live in Shreveport. My love of creativity has always been there and I was blessed with parents that constantly encouraged this love. After high school I traveled "up North" to Louisiana Tech University where I became a Phi Mu and earned a BFA in Graphic Design. Shortly after moving to Shreveport to work as a graphic designer for a local children's science center, I met my husband. We now have two children, Audrey and Jackson and a dog, Magnolia 2. When I'm not painting or designing, I'm spending time with my family hanging out at the pool, farmer's markets or other local events. You can follow me on Instagram to check out our adventures and new MCC products and planning. I hope you'll stick around for some fun and some fresh, southern style.
