The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 9

Today we’re focusing on one of my favorite categories at the 2016 National Stationery Show: party supplies and gift items! These are seriously some of the happiest booths to visit at the show. We’ll see striped and marbled table runners and placemats from Hester & Cook, patterned paper plates and gift wrap from Bash Party Goods, gorgeous wood cutting boards and cake (and cupcake) stands from American Heirloom, and beautiful ribbon and twine from Knot & Bow. Oh, and ALL THE THINGS from Ban.do! Let’s start with the beautiful world of colorful paper pinwheels from My Mind’s Eye!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 7

It’s probably more than obvious around here, but I’m completely in love with calligraphy and hand lettering. Watching a calligrapher or hand lettering artist at work is one of my absolute favorite things – it’s like magic! So for today’s recap from the 2016 National Stationery Show, I thought we’d focus in on a few of the calligraphy and hand lettering booths at the show. Let’s start with an exhibitor making their debut at this year’s show, Shannon Kirsten! Shannon combines her unique calligraphy with gorgeous illustrations – I love all those amazing florals!

The 2016 National Stationery Show, Part 6

Today’s recap from the 2016 National Stationery Show is less about a common design style or color palette, and more about an overall vibe. In my head, I’ve been calling this group of booths the New Bohemians. Each booth has a laid back, offbeat vibe, with plenty of botanical details throughout. Let’s start with Wild Hart Paper, which was full of beautiful greeting cards, art prints, gift wrap, and more!
