Happy November! Today we’re rolling out our latest holiday card series. Festive holiday cocktails inspired this fun set featuring original watercolor artwork and tear-off recipe cards. Christmas Cranberry Mint Juleps, Candy Cane Cosmos and Glühwein (aka Mulled Wine) are meant to be shared during this season’s celebrations.

The cover of each card features a holly jolly wreath made from the coordinating beverage’s ingredients, and the inside (back of the front cover) has an illustrated seasonal drink with recipe for eight. The fold is perforated so that the recipe card may be torn off for convenient display, storage and reference.

Where the interior greeting is printed, there is space for a personal message as well. All of the cards in this line feature the following text:

Front Message: Holiday Cheer | Inside Message: Wishing you a joyful celebration!

You can purchase the cards online in our shop on Etsy or email us for a direct order. The A2 cards are sold in multipacks of twelve or single-design packs of eight with sparkling red envelopes for all. We can also customize orders – just drop us a line! The cards are illustrated with watercolor paint and flat printed by hand on recycled white, felt-textured cardstock. Cheers!

Oy vey, well it’s been quite the busy summer around here! I swear until this very moment we haven’t had two seconds to blog, so please accept my apologies for the radio silence! But we have some good reasons and I am thrilled to present one of them.

Silverado Trail Wedding Stationery Suite

Marissa and Kevin initially connected with us through Lindsey of L’Relyea Events last spring and when I heard about their plans for a Calistoga wedding (hello) as well as their refreshingly unique color palette, I was hooked. Then they started talking about how they love texturey-paper and visiting wine on the Silverado Trail and I knew something special was about to happen.

Marissa and Kevin knew they wanted their wedding stationery to be a custom design and they also loved letterpress printing, so the suite started taking shape from there. With a classic, yet contemporary wedding aesthetic, the design incorporated graphic grapevines and clean typography. An illustrated Napa map insert flat printed on Arturo cardstock featured locations that were pertinent to the wedding weekend, as well as the aforementioned favorite wineries along the Silverado Trail. The entire invitation suite was enclosed in a kraft pocketfolder, tied with hand-dyed organic twine and sealed with a cream wax seal featuring the couple's wedding monogram.

The elements were later carried into a bevy of Day Of materials, ranging from Program Fans (to combat the July heat in Calistoga) to Favor Hang Tags, Hanging Escort Cards, Place Cards, wine varietal Table Numbers, Signage and beyond. They even incorporated the graphic scheme into their photo booth prints and an etched wooden guest book.

You can see all the photos of this stationery suite in our portfolio here. Or check out some preview photos of the actual wedding from their photographer, Stacey Pentland  (be ready for some major wedding eye candy) here. I’m sure there will be more to come from all the amazing vendors Lindsey pulled together for this affair!

Congratulations and Thank You, Marissa and Kevin!!!
