When we heard one of our favorite florists of all time, Putnam & Putnam, had collaborated with Paperless Post (another favorite resource of ours for online and paper wedding invitations) for a beautiful bespoke spotlight collection, we could barely wait to see what they came up with. And—finally—today is the day! Paperless Post and Putnam & Putnam launched their gorgeous, ethereal invitation suite.
Paperless Post regularly collaborates with top names in all facets of design, tapping the best of the best in every catagory: fashion (Oscar de La Renta, Charlotte Olympia), interiors (Kelly Wearstler, John Derian), stationery (Rifle Paper Co., Bernard Maisner). It came as no surprise that it would collaborate with the ever-talented floral duo behind Putnam & Putnam. “Similar to Paperless Post, Putnam & Putnam’s work is central to the celebration of important moments and events in people’s lives” says James Hirschfeld, CEO and cofounder of Paperless Post. “Within this collection, we hope to have translated the unique beauty of their floral arrangements, which explore interesting textures, color, and emotion, into the world of online stationery.”
Putnam & Putnam designs beautiful floral pieces for not only weddings but also editorial purposes; they have collaborated with fashion greats for large-scale installations (see: the amazing Jason Wu Spring 2018 runway show), and they’ve unsurprisingly picked up a roster of impressive clients, including Vogue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Harper’s Bazaar. There’s something about Putnam’s arrangements and installations that feels at once timeless and modern—a richness combined with meandering movement that pleases our aesthetic appetites.
Translating this to the stationery world seems like a natural match; the florals on the invitations also have that classic yet current and cool feel. “We’re thrilled to partner with Paperless Post on this bespoke collection,” say the Putnams. “We’re excited to bring the wild yet formal spirit of our arrangements to the world of online stationery.”
We chose five of our favorites from the new collab, but check out the full line here! Side note: One of our favorite parts of this collection are the envelopes; even the inside lining of them have a beautiful floral design. Not a detail was missed!
She’s a deep oxblood red and mixes a thin script with a sans serif. Are those carnations we spy? See, we told you they were trending!
With flowers that subtly ombré from a yellow-orange to red to deep burgundy, this beauty is perfect for a wedding invite or maybe your first holiday cocktail party!
Monochromatic, this millennial pink invite mixes with other shades of blush and red florals for the bride who wants a look that’s both soft and romantic but also a little boldness!
For a fall or winter wedding (or maybe for a cozy rehearsal dinner), this emerald green is as rich as the florals that are seemingly growing out of the bottom of the invite.
