With one long and full day of paper-perusing behind us, Ruthie and I were happy to recharge a bit with a delicious dinner in the park with former SW intern, Alexia (who now works at Loverly!) and a couple celebrity sightings. Day Two at the Stationery Show found us re-energized and excited to see even more paper designs and inspiration to take back to the SW office.

In a rush to get some lunch in our bellies, we almost walked right past Felix Doolittle’s booth before stopping to get a better look at their illustrations. We adore the Old South feel in some of Felix’s cards, and when we mentioned how much we love the South, Felix pulled out a collection of prints that were too perfect for a Southern gent!

Moglea continues to be one of our favorite booths — their paper goodies are both beautiful to look at and an experience to hold, with thick cotton paper and a heavy letterpress impression.

Some of our favorites from Moglea’s booth this year were Meg’s new bridesmaid cards, which come with a paper flower that’s meant to be saved and pinned up somewhere, and her gold foil and watercolor prints with sentiments that were so simple and lovely.

We found eye candy and sweet sentiments galore at the Smock and Bella Figura booth. The gold foil heart invitation is a show-stopper!

The detail that Studio R puts into their designs is truly beautiful. We kept finding lace laser-cut details in their invitations and booth decor to swoon over!

The Paper Cub booth was bursting with neon and excitement! We were impressed by their entire wall full of state-themed postcards. We especially loved North Carolina’s cardinal and dogwood illustration and Georgia’s peaches.

I was really excited to find 9th Letter Press’s booth on the second day, especially since I developed a paper crush on them last year and also because I knew their booth was going to be pineapple-themed for hospitality! They delivered with hand-painted pineapples on their walls, a coffee station, and fun new designs. I really loved their notecard coupons for breakfast in bed, coffee, and more. Y’all will also be happy to hear that our favorite print last year, the Mason Jar Measuring Guide, will soon be printed digitally, making it more affordable.

Maybe it’s because Ink Meets Paper is a husband and wife duo, but I feel that they really get love. Their designs are simple, sweet and a little surprising — like their envelopes with a special message inside, their new confetti notecards, or their line of toast cards, advice cards and more that are made especially for weddings.

Stepping into One Canoe Two’s booth is like going to summer camp and all of their designs contain a little dose of nostalgia along with pops of color. Doesn’t their citrus grocery list remind you of our Freshly Squeezed shoot?

Visiting Rifle Paper Co. is always a treat and we were happy to see some Southern influence in Anna’s famous style. Orange and lemon blossoms were abundant!

I’ve got one more post up my sleeve, y’all! Stay tuned tomorrow for the last of the paper pretties we discovered at the show and an exciting treat.

If y’all follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know I spent a few days up North in New York City for this year’s National Stationery Show. It’s been a dream of mine to go to this show, y’all! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Dozens upon dozens of stationers and designers pop up adorable booths to show off their new designs each year at the show, where buyers and members of the press get to stroll through and take a look. If you’re as paper-obsessed as me or Emily, then you know how exciting this is! I was lucky enough to stroll through the aisles with Whitney Porter. She did a great job of photographing all the amazing designs we found. Of course, I couldn’t help but snap a few on my iPhone, too.

Incredibly Charming Paper and Gifts was one of the first booths we stopped at. Y’all, tell me you don’t need these adorable cocktail napkins! ICPG had a slew of customizable home goods (even doggie bowls!), but these napkins were made for summer cookouts and bridesmaids gifts.

Fine Day Press drew us in with their happy bunting, but kept us snapping away when we saw their bright fun cards!

The first thing that grabbed my eye in Flywheel Press’s booth was their large letterpresses family tree prints. Each tree is colored after a season and I love how beautifully each branch is laid out. It would make such a sweet wedding gift! Of course, their blue ribbon cards and boxed notes were too cute to pass!

Oh Kate Spade! This sparkly booth was full of adorable props and goodies. I loved the new line of stacking storage boxes in pretty pinks and florals. I can just imagine using them as a gift box and then repurposing them as storage for wedding photos and props. Happily, Whitney and I ran into Natalie Chang of Lifeguard Press while we were at the Kate Spade booth! I had to snap a photo with her.

Stopping by the Lifeguard Press booth to visit Jonathan Adler, Lilly Pulitzer and ban.do was pure fun. I loved seeing the patterned tumblers from Jonathan and Lilly and thoroughly enjoyed the idea of playing dress up at ban.do!

I was dying to get over to the Belle & Union booth! Ever since Emily met Meg last year at NSS, we’ve been happily emailing back and forth. We thought her cute sayings and designs were the perfect compliment to Southern Weddings that we started stocking her products in our shop! This year, Meg’s released the most adorable recipe tea towels, calendars and new cards.

Sideshow Press was right across from Belle & Union, and they gave us another reason to stop and get camera-happy. Their camping-themed booth was thoughtful and thorough. I loved everything from the muslin crumb bags to the notecards (how cute is that felt pennant birthday card?) and the mini message booklets. They’re perfect for mini love notes!

I was excited to meet Kristen from Thimblepress. I’ve actually had my eye on her Etsy store for months! Her shop is based in Mississippi and we loved seeing a bit of Southern flair in her designs.

Y’all, I kind of died over the Farm to Table collection from One Canoe Two. These little notecards are perfect for everyday notes and contain some of my favorite parts of the South.

That’s all for Part 1, y’all! I’ll be back soon with even more from NSS.

    I am CRAZY for stationery! I love the “I Love You A Bushel And A Peck” card. My mom sang that to me when I was little!

    Amazing!! You know I’m loving all this. I particularly adore the Bushel and a Peck print, the blue ribbon cards, the push pop confetti, and of course everything Belle & Union!
