So here they are. Our lovely beer hops wedding invitations.
|It'll all be tied together with a sweet little bow|
|Humulus lupulus, "brewers' hops"|
This old botanical drawing was the inspiration
for our invitation suite.
|A detail from the botanical drawing became the motif|
of our invitation, reception card and everything else.
|Here's the full set with the exterior of the envelope.|
I know it's a small touch, but I really like these mailing labels.
(I really ought to take new photos, these aren't doing it justice)
I'm so relieved to have these done, actually. Now that I have these, more ideas are brewing for my etsy store. Here are a few things that I'm working on next:
-More beer hops wedding stationery pieces, including place cards, thank you notes, table numbers, and wedding programs.
-Other vintage botanical drawing invitation suites. Right now I'm in love with the following plants and will try and do suites for them all: persimmon (aka sharon fruit), pomegranate and sweet pea (my dad's nickname for me).
