Bloomsbury Farm Wedding / watercolor suite

Last Fall we worked with the always wonderful Big Events, based out of Franklin, Tenn. Their beautiful bride got married at Bloomsbury Farm and we came up with a dreamy, romantic suite to fit the occasion.

new years eve invitation : 2014

When it's New years Eve + your 50th birthday you gotta ring in the year big time. This invitation was all about "Mike." Athlete, card shark, golf lover, father of two, with a very good sense of humor. Black + white with gold foil all over. And the real show stopper was the incredible calligraphy mixed with vintage sports stamps. This was truly a fun one!

letterpress deer christmas card

The holidays are over, but we're so excited to share this wonderful Christmas card we did last month. Our client really wanted something special to celebrate her daughters recent wedding. The gatefold cards we're letterpressed on Cranes cotton stock & tied with a red ribbon for a punch of color. Our favorite part was the vintage style envelope liner with found winter imagery.

Watercolor Crest - Save the Date

I know we're not supposed to pick favorites and all, but this is definitely a favorite. The bride really wanted a one-of-a-kind crest so we incorporated imagery from the Colorado mountains where the wedding will be held.

I love the bright cheerfulness of the crest balanced with the rugged letterpress on the opposite side. The Save the Date card was letterpress printed on wood grain paper, die-cut, and feature a custom illustration of antlers & headdress, along with a wood grain envelope liner. The Native American illustrations give a nod to some of the family heritage & there will be cocktails in a tee-pee on the big day. Hopefully guests are packing their bags already!

Farm to Table invitations

Our client wanted some "Farm to Table" invitations for her sons rehearsal dinner coming up this Fall. The dinner will be hosted on this gorgeous estate called Elawa Farm. We put our Tenn Hens spin on it with custom illustrations, highlighting some of the produce grown in the farms garden. The suite included letterpress, a duplexed backer, matching envelope liners, and calligraphy by Val Cole.

Teepee Invitations - Will you be my bridesmaid?

One of our brides is marrying in Steamboat Springs next summer and at the tip top of her list was to ask her favorite gals to be in the bridal party. We wanted to come up with something really meaningful and fun to get her friends exited. A teepee is a one of the images we're using in her wedding suite so we created a miniature version for the girls to set out on their desk or dresser.

The card folds in half with a blank space for the bride to write a special note. Then we tied them with twine and tucked in some feathers with a little example included on how to put together. A tiny bit of DIY and there you have your own teepee!

oakes baby announcement featured on oh so beautiful paper

We wanted to create a special birth announcement to welcome Bonnie's baby boy, Preston Oakes Cross, into the world. Our concept took its inspiration from her family farm where she grew up, married, and where Oakes will be baptized this summer.
babyO_1 babyO_2 babyO_3 The property is bounded by a beautiful river which brought to mind the natural world of trees, foliage, deer, canoes, and herons. The announcement is letter-pressed and duplexed with another card printed with all these images. Currier hand painted in watercolor a soft graphic pattern for the envelope liner. The photo was printed on metallic paper to add a crisp note to the overall color palette. And of course Oakes provided his adorable baby face. babyO_4 babyO_6 Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks!

30A Songwriters Festival

Each January, along scenic highway 30A in Florida, The Cultural Arts Alliance hosts a 3 day music festival along the gorgeous beaches of South Walton. This year Tenn Hens partnered with the festival to design all of their marketing materials for the festival. We created various items like web banners, ads, posters, and the program guide that's given to all attendees & sponsors. We were thrilled to work with their team and have already started on 2015s graphics.
