National Stationery Show 2014, Part 12

Today we’re jumping back into recaps from the 2014 National Stationery Show – and our first recap of the day is focused on three booths that pack an incredible amount of awesome stationery into each square foot of booth space. From the Crow & Canary booth representing more than twelve individual stationery lines to the shared Ladies of Letterpress booth with more than twelve individual exhibitors, there’s definitely a lot to see!

National Stationery Show 2014, Part 10

Every year at the National Stationery Show, there are a couple of rows that are packed so full of amazing stationers (many of whom are also friends with each other in real life) that I know it’s going to take me an entire day just to walk that row. I often save these rows for the very last day of the show, because I’m afraid I won’t make it through the other aisles if I go any sooner! So today I thought I’d share a few of those booths, and I hope you love them as much as I do!

National Stationery Show, Part 9

Generally speaking, stationers have a pretty good sense of humor. There are so many times that I’ve laughed out loud while walking around a booth at the National Stationery Show, and the cards that make me laugh often end up being my favorites from the show! So today I thought I’d focus on a few of the booths with a particularly keen sense of humor, from the amazing witty humor of Sapling Press and Old Tom Foolery to the quirky cards of McBitterson’s and Greenwich Letterpress (who decorated their entire booth as though it was their bedroom from the 1990s!).

Paper Party 2014!

Each year, I have the immense privilege of hosting a party during the National Stationery Show – and today I’m so excited to share the photos from this year’s party! The stationery community is full of some of the most wonderful and talented people, many of whom I’m honored to consider friends, and it makes me indescribably happy to see all of them in the same (big) room together and having a great time. Such an incredible evening!

This year’s party was again held at Hudson Terrace. My talented friend (and professional event planner) Janice from Bellwether Events helped me plan the party and kept the entire evening running smoothly. We chose a floral theme for this year’s party, with a color palette of black, white, pink, and gold paired with shades of peach, mint, and other pastels. We also partnered with an incredible team of sponsors to bring the party to life: MintedMohawkEtsy WholesaleSmockHester & Cook Design GroupPostableMailchimpSnow & GrahamLegion PaperGilah Press & DesignLadies of LetterpressZazzle, and Balloon Time Helium Tanks.

I wanted to find a way of thanking our amazing team of sponsors – without which this party would seriously not have been possible – and Minted was kind enough to print this large scale (8′ long!) welcome banner using a modified horizontal version of their Botanical Wreath photo backdrop. Alexis Mattox created a beautiful gold and cream botanical paper garland to string around the banner. So pretty!

The first 125 party guests received tote gift bags provided by Zazzle and designed by Mr. Boddington’s Studio – and packed to the brim with AMAZING stationery goodies. All 125 gift bags disappeared in less than 15 minutes! But you guys are in luck: I set aside five tote bags just to give away to a few lucky readers. Check back tomorrow for the giveaway!

It has become a bit of a tradition for us to have a large decoration spelling out “Paper Party” near the venue entrance. Ashley from Fine Day Press created the letters and giant paper flowers using Mohawk Britehue, Opaque, and Strathmore paper and Smock gift wrap, with assembly help from Barbara of Double Bravo. The botanical garland was made by Alexis Mattox Design. I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!

I like to incorporate an interactive element into the party each year. Hester & Cook Design Group provided this fantastic chalkboard paper table runner, which we used as a guest book! It was so fun to see what everyone wrote once the party was over!

Last year’s folded paper shadowbox decorations were a big hit, so I knew I wanted to do something creative again this year! To fit our floral inspiration, we scattered individual paper flowers from these peony and succulent wreath kits from Paper Source across foam core boards cut to the specific size of each shadowbox.

On the outdoor terrace, we set up a special lounge just for our friends at Etsy Wholesale! They commissioned a gorgeous custom sign and filled the lounge with some information about and goodies from Etsy Wholesale sellers. The lounge was full of retailers and sellers all night! I’m so excited to see what’s in store for this wonderful new wholesale platform.

We filled the rest of the outdoor terrace with pink tissue paper bunting and several giant 3′ confetti-filled balloons from Shop Sweet Lulu and honeycomb tissue paper balls in shades of peach and mint. We paired the balloons and honeycombs with pastel DIY tissue paper tassels that Mandy carefully transported all the way from Nashville to New York!

Once again, we partnered with Minted to bring Smilebooth to the Paper Party – and I still can’t get over this amazing backdrop! We used a pink version of their Botanical Wreath backdrop paired with pink, peach, and white tissue paper fans and custom paper flowers commissioned from artist David Holland (aka Old City Artmaker). So gorgeous!
