Meat Market Tampa

Custom Invitations for the sexiest spot in Hyde Park. Meat Market. Before I talk about the process of making these beautiful invites, let me tell you a bit about Meat Market. M takes inspiration from six different continents around the world – South Africa, France, Australia, Japan, Argentina and the US – all famed for their outstanding food. Curated by executive chef Mike Reid, each dish has a modern twist including prime steak cuts such as South African rib eye and firecracker sauce, cauliflower served with kale and a mini provolone empanada, as well as high grade Japanese pure Kobe fillet steak. Their food menu is complemented by a stunning wine list which boasts over 120 wines by the glass. What’s more, their restaurants feature striking Himalayan salt chambers for aging meat, unrivaled event spaces, beautiful bars, wine rooms, as well as private members areas known as the The Den. 

These invitations were made for a private event hosted by South Tampa’s well known event planning company, The Social Revelry. Owner Ally Lamb is an outstanding business woman with an eye for bringing unique parties to life. The talented branding team Bridge and Bloom designed these modern invites for the special event. Preparing the way for what attendees can expect, a thoughtfully designed night intended to spoil and encourage connection between friends. Every detail of the event is hand tailored by Ally and her team of fellow ‘party babes’. Sure to be a knock out combination under the roof of Meat Market.

Ally asked the invitations match her branding and website from design to paper. I sourced beautiful 220lb blush pink cotton lettra from Crane & Co. This was the perfect combination to her companies Pantone red and the added gold ink detail for Meat Markets’ logo. We finished the touches with an ebony black euro-flap envelope and white ink addressing.

*Custom mixed ink and letter pressed invitations all done start-to-finish by myself, on our Chandler and Price 10X15 Press (Early 1900s).

I love getting to work with talented female entrepreneurs in my city. I love getting to be a part of these special events and delight in making sure every little detail is perfect. Clients like Ally and designers like Bridge and Bloom are a dream to work with.
