National Stationery Show: Pica Press

We are very excited to have the new party album from Pica Press on its way to the shop. We have had great success with their baby announcements, holiday, wedding and stationery albums - we fully expect this to be a big hit! Should be in the shop in a few weeks.

Get ready ... here comes summer!

Well, whether or not I was ready - my kids were all dismissed from school today and summer is upon us. Looking forward to lots of great get-togethers with family and friends. So, I am going to stock up on some of these great fontaine maury items - love the tray, party tub, cooler and especially the great soy candles - which by the way would make a great hostess gift - and we stock the single letters in the store.

Stop in and order some summer plates for eating outside ... then enjoy this time with your family and friends. See you this summer.

Party Tub - $45
Candle - $45
Drink Cooler - $25

Soup to Nuts

Often we are asked, "Do you (fill in the blank)?" And most of the time, the answer is yes. If you are planning a wedding, you can count on Bennett Schneider from everything from save-the-dates to the programs, menus and placecards (even the "Just Married" sign for the car).

This invitation is a sugar paper letterpressed invitation on a creamy deckled-edge paper. The program is tied with hand-dyed silk ribbon in the lavendar color to complement the flowers and other wedding colors. Not pictured - the adorable save-the-date, the tablecards and placecards, and "Just Married" sign for the car. Congrats to Lauren and Andy - whose lovely wedding I can't wait to see photos of!

Where has the time gone!

Okay - I took a very long break from posting (didn't even realize how long it had been until I went and looked)! We have just been very busy with weddings and I was feeling somewhat uninspired - but now the weather is starting to look good, Memorial Day and summer vacation are right around the corner and I just returned from the National Stationery Show - full of new ideas and inspiring new products. So keep following and I will have lots of new product photos as things begin to roll in. I am also going to post some great photos of some of the invitations we have been working on since I last posted. Stay tuned...

In the meantime, enjoy this photo - we are going to be carrying this great line of new but very vintage alarm clocks - they will make awesome graduation gifts, father's day gifts and will truly liven up any bedside table. Truly a great gift for the guy in your life.
