I spotted this beautiful first birthday invitation and certificate on Pinterest yesterday in Inspired Bride’s collection. This suite was created by the husband and wife team of Duet letterpress for their adorable daughter, Emily. What a lucky girl!

The invitation is letterpressed on the smaller pink card and details from the 1st year are included in the certificate. Both were bundled up with baker’s twine along with a picture of the birthday girl in a small glassine envelope.

I think the certificate is such a sweet way of celebrating all those simple moments and big milestones with your friends and family. See more pictures and find out the details about the printing here.



Well Sent: Green, White & Gold

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Today’s Well Sent comes from a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired wedding photoshoot by Rebecca Hansen. This beautiful event was designed around a green, white and gold color palette and 60’s vintage elements.

While I normally would only highlight the paper details in this column, the elements around this shoot are utterly stunning and too good not to share! Enjoy all the lovely details on the Ruffled blog and be sure to check out the full gallery as well.



I’ve been trying to think of a new section to add to Twig & Thistle to keep things exciting and fresh here. The latest “Well Branded” series, where I highlight some of my favorite brands and identities, seems to be a big hit so I thought I’d try a new series called “Well Sent”. Well Sent will feature invitations, announcements and general correspondence in an attempt to celebrate one of our oldest forms of communication.

Our inaugural feature goes to this lovely wedding invitation for Christina and Bryan letterpressed and designed by Rabe + Company. Inspired by the wedding location, an old factory, and a few of the couples favorite restaurants, the invitation picks up some distinctive details.

I love the mix of bold type paired with classic filigree. The format is completely unexpected and modern for a wedding invite all while celebrating a times past.
