Terrain Special Events Soirée

Last night we had a great evening at the events open house at terrain in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. {Full disclosure: my husband runs this garden lifestyle brand for Urban Outfitters.} The evening was magical and well attended. I met so many great people and had a fun time showing our custom letterpress invitations to brides and grooms.

Terrain has been quietly booking events from weddings and rehearsal
dinners to birthday dinners and parties since they opened about two
years ago. They have a new chef {the amazing Keith Rudolf,
the former chef de cuisine from Supper in Philadelphia} and an in-house events team who are collaborative, creative and attentive. Terrain isn’t simply an ideal spot for Sunday brunch, it’s also a dreamscape for weddings and other events.

I always get so inspired when I spend time at terrain. I come away wanting to completely redefine my indoor and outdoor living spaces, overhaul my entertaining and unplug my life. That’s saying a lot for someone who isn’t a gardener at heart. Terrain is part reverie, part store, part experiential bliss. Last night didn’t disappoint. Feast your eyes!

A Sneak Peek

After releasing two new album lines in 2009, we’re busy at work behind the scenes on our next launch that will be available later this year. In the meantime, we have a few surprises up our sleeves that we’ll be sharing soon!

As we do every year, we sent out a fun card this week to all the wonderful dealers we work with from coast to coast to let them know that we’ll miss seeing them this year at the National Stationery Show, but we’re preparing some exciting things to come at Dauphine Press – edge painting is just one fun finishing touch that we’re adding to our repertoire!

Dealers on the east coast were treated to an interesting postmark on their “delight delivery” which were sent from the nation’s first post office located in Philadelphia’s Old City. Brides take note: this is the only post office in the country that hand cancels each piece of mail as a matter of course. The unique postmark bears the signature of Benjamin Franklin, the first Postmaster General: “B. Free Franklin.” Even the postmark date is set in vintage form, including the abbreviation for the month of May.

This is also the only post office in the country that does not fly the
American flag. Why? Because when it was established in 1775 we weren’t a country yet, so there was simply no flag to fly.

Wedding and Events Open House at terrain

On the evening of Friday, May 14th, we will be at terrain in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania for an amazing open house. We’ll be in good company with Laura Novak Photography, Flying Monkey Patisserie and Dallas Shaw. If you haven’t been to terrain yet, you’re missing out on one of life’s great experiences. The events being held there are nothing short of magical. If you’re in the Philadelphia or Wilmington area, please rsvp as space is limited.
