Vermont-based designer Christa Alexandra created these lovely floral wedding invitations for a gorgeous wedding in – where else? – Vermont! Inspired by the unbelievably beautiful wedding venue, Christa designed an elegant pink and gray invitation suite with just a hint of rustic charm.
From Christa: Laura and Andrew live in New York City, but wanted a wedding weekend away with family and friends. Vermont seemed to be just the right fit, and with a venue like the Round Barn Farm – who wouldn’t be swept up in that rustic charm?
Thinking about Vermont and all its beauty, I put pencil to paper and came up with the idea of hand drawn ferns, flowers and frames. With letterpress in mind, Laura and I came up a chic pink and gray theme with a rustic twist.
I kept the invitation elegant enough, but let in touches of rustic that balanced NYC with Vermont. I am in love with everything in this 10-piece invitation suite, right down to the variegated silk ribbon used to wrap the inner envelope and the speckled milkweed envelopes.

Oh my, how time flies! It seems like just yesterday Lisa from Good on Paper sent over the circus-inspired first birthday party invitations that she created for her son Lucas. Today, nearly a year later, we’re sharing the invitations that Lisa created for his second birthday party! For this year’s invitation design, Lisa was inspired by some adorable photos of Lucas playing hide-and-seek – such a cute idea!
From Lisa: I used a photo that I just love of Lucas playing hide and seek. He was being super quiet and still but then I saw his feet poking out from under the shades and it was the cutest thing. I designed a little half moon enclosure envelope and put the other photo of him popping out from behind the shade on the actual invitation.
We are doing a “round” theme (balloons, round food items like meatballs, donut holes, mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and renting a cute snow cone truck). The entire invitation was delivered in translucent envelopes sealed with Japanese washi tape and a custom wraparound address label.

Sometimes the most beautiful designs are also the most simple. Allie from Allie Ruth Design created these save the dates using two very simple materials: chipboard postcards and rubber stamps! Allie started with her unique hand lettering before adding doily rubber stamps in contrasting white ink. So pretty!
From Allie: Catherine wanted something rustic with lace details for her save the dates, so I immediately thought chipboard postcards would be perfect. I hand lettered all of the text, using custom rubber stamps to print the text on the chipboard. The doily imagery is from a set of Japanese rubber stamps that I found on Etsy. We added vintage stamps at the end, et voila!

As promised, we’re back with some of the day-of wedding stationery that Melissa and Amy from Atheneum Creative put together for Mary and Ben’s wedding. As with the save the dates and wedding invitations, Melissa and Amy continued to incorporate wood veneer elements to complement the elegant and rustic wedding style – from ceremony programs and escort cards to menus and table numbers.
From Melissa + Amy: The ceremony program reflected the rustic element, with a wood veneer cover and letterpress printed pages mounted inside. The wood veneer cover was also letterpress printed with Mary and Ben’s names and the wedding location.
We also created cocktail napkins and bathroom towels with Mary and Ben’s wedding logo. The escort cards were a combination custom pocket envelope and digitally printed slip-in card with the table number. Guest names were calligraphed on the outside of each envelope.
For the table numbers, we wanted to continue with wood as our material but do something a little different in the production process. We used hand written calligraphy numerals and laser die cut each table number.
So cool! Thanks Melissa + Amy!
