Shopping For Stationery | Chinoiserie Style

Hi friends.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and Easter.  It’s not secret that I love paper products and today I’m sharing one of my favorite paper companies with.

I love beautiful stationery and as a business owner personalized stationery is part of my branding when communicating with clients.

 I was on the hunt recently for new notecards and my search led me to WH Hostess Social Stationery.   WH Hostess sells paper goods including stationery, party decor, gift packaging and personalized gifts.  Their designs are fresh and modern and I love the variety of patterns and colors they offer. Chinoiserie inspired designs are one of my favorite and WH Hostess has a great selection of chinoiserie stationery.

NOTECARDS

 I prefer flat cards over folded and use them for general correspondence with clients and for quick notes to friends. A few of my favorite designs from WH Hostess include their greek key, stripe, bamboo and plaid designs.

Greek Key Emblem Notecard {available in 8 colors}

Monogram Ginger Jar Flat Notecard {7 monogram colors available}

Striped Letters Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 4 colors}

Bamboo Monogram Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 6 colors}


Greek Key Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 8 colors}

GIFT TAGS

If you think gift tags are just for gift  giving, think again.  Personalized gift tags with your business logo and name can be used as a creative alternative to a business card.  I use them to tag fabric sample rings or other design samples.  You can also use personalized stickers in the same way.

NOTEPADS

I jot down notes and reminders on a daily basis so a pretty notepad is essential to my day.  And love giving personalized notepads as gifts.

There are so many designs available from WH Hostess so be sure to check out their site and you’re sure to find something to fit your style.

♦  I love everything that Lollia makes including this Lollia Poetic License Diffuser ($48).  Scent diffusers are a great way to add fragrance to a home without burning candles. I especially love to use diffusers in a bathroom or tuck one away in a guest bedroom.

♦  This Gilded Monogram DOF Glass ($18) is a good gift for someone (like me) that loves to entertain. One, two or four make a great hostess gift or family gift.  If you’re celebrating the holidays at a New Year’s Eve party, a set glasses would be ideal to ring in the new year.

♦  A pretty necklace can make an outfit. The Silver Links Statement Necklace ($29.99) is a gift that will be enjoyed long after the holidays are over.

♦ Emerald Green is one of my favorite colors and you can’t beat the price on this Green Pashmina Style Shawl ($5.99)!  It’s the perfect layering piece over a sweater or under a coat. One for them, one for me.√

♦  You’ll wow anyone with a gift of these Silver Mercury Glass Hurricane Candleholder ($11.89-$19.59).  They will look stunning grouped in the center of a table or next to the hearth.  And I’d also use them as vases by dropping a clear glass jar inside to hold flowers.  Check your local Cost Plus because these are selling out quickly online.

♦  Pretty {and functional) gloves are hard to come by but this pair of Echo Touch Zip Boucle’ Tech Gloves ($39) checks both boxes.  You can operate a cell phone with ease and stay warm while doing it.

♦  This L’Objet Malachite Tray ($120) is the most expensive gift in the gift guide but it is a beauty.  Envision this sitting on a side table, night stand or vanity holding pretty perfume bottles.

♦  If you’ve never read any of Steve Harvey’s books, I recommend you do. His books are filled with solid wisdom, advice and lots of laughs too.  I can’t wait to read his newest book, Jump: Take the Leap Of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance ($18.04).

♦  A girl can never have too many handbags.  The Crossbody Bag with Metallic Straps ($39.90) is a great bag for weekend shopping or traveling when you need hands free.

♦ I’m always stuffing my electronic cords in a zippered pouch but they never stay organized.  The idea of something to keep everything neat and tidy is so appealing.  I love this Leather Charger Roll Up ($49) because its compact and comes in fun colors.

♦  Personalized stationery just might be one of best gifts you can give someone. This 7 Tablet Notepad Set with Holder ($41) is a great price and personalization is available in array of colors.

Creative Gift Giving–Stationery Box

CS Stationery Suite7

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while or follow me on Instagram, you know I love beautiful stationery.  I’m a sucker for the boxed notecards at HomeGoods and I’ve been known to handcraft my own monogram notecards.

As a business owner and lifestyle blogger, I make it a practice to send cards and notes to all my design clients and to new friends that I meet through blogging.  I also love to give beautiful stationery as gifts.

Today I’m sharing a fun and stylish gift idea that’s  easy to pull together, Monogrammed Stationery Suite!

The first thing you’ll need to do to create this stationery set is to compile an assortment of notecards. The perfect stationery suite should include thank you cards, blank note cards, blank or decorative tags and maybe even some decorative or monogrammed stickers.

Here are the items I included in my set:

CS Stationery Suite2

DIY Monogram Notecard // Personalized Notepad // Monogram Stickers // Personalized Thank You Cards // Gift Tags (similar)

CS Stationery Suite6

CS Stationery Suite4

DIY Monogram Notecards // Personalized Notepad // Monogram Stickers // Personalized Thank You Cards // Gift Tags (similar)

tip: You may also want to include a pretty pen in the stationery suite so the gift recipient has everything they need to send notes.

Next, head to the store and pick up a small acrylic drawer unit.  I purchased this one from HomeGoods for less than $8 but I also love this one from the Container Store.

Acrylic Box

Once all the items are pulled together, arrange them in each drawer so all the cards and stickers can be seen.

CS Stationery Suite17

To personalize the top of the box, use these embroidered iron-on letters and simply glue them onto the top of the box.

tip:  the initials are white when you purchased them but you can easily use a Sharpie to change the color like I did.  I used this same technique when I made my DIY monogram straw hat.

Notecards, Thank You, Blank Notes

Effie’s Paper

Sugar Paper

Rifle Paper Company

With the Christmas gift giving season just a few months away, get a jump on your gift giving and make up a few of these boxes for the special people in your life.

One of my favorite online stores is Zazzle.  I discovered them a few years ago when I was looking for business cards.  Boy was I amazed at the enormous offering of card designs and how great the prices were.  Since then I’ve bought a variety of paper products from Zazzle including address labels and wrapping paper.

Most recently I ordered some monogram stickers so I could make my own monogram notecards.

Favorites from the new Ikea Catalog

2016 Ikea Catalog

The last couple of times I’ve gone to Ikea the store has been under construction with new vignettes being constructed and old products being liquidated.  Seeing all of that going on only meant one thing…the release of the 2016 Ikea catalog was nearing.

2016 Ikea Catalog3

2016 Ikea Catalog4

I received my copy of the catalog a few days ago and boy oh boy are there some really awesome items in it.  From new furniture to textiles and pillows, there are so many items that on are my shopping list.  And as an admitted paper addict, I’m loving all the new paper products they have too. I can’t wait to make a trip to the store to pick up a few of my favorite things but for now I thought I’d share them with you here on the blog.

The Maryd Tray Table is such a versatile piece that could be used as a night stand or even  side table.  $69.99 

IKEA--MARYD TRAY TABLE

Ikea is one of my favorite sources for baskets and this lidded Nipprig Basket is a steal at $16.99.  Such a chic way to store kids toys, blankets and magazines.

IKEA--NIPPRIG BASKET

If you’re looking for stylish office storage that won’t break the bank, these Fjalla Magazine File will fit the bill.  And at $4.99 for a 2 pack you can fill your entire bookcase with them.

IKEA--FJALLA MAGAZINE FILE

I don’t have any space for a new chair but if I did I’d definitely buy the Nipprig Chair.  Can’t you just image this painted in a bold, bright color?  $49.00

IKEA--NIPPRIG CHAIR

I’m a fan of Ikea’s Billy Bookcase but the Valje Shelf has so much more style with the off-set shelves and the white-washed wood grain finish.  $149.00

IKEA--VALJE SHELF

I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of these Risatorp Wire Baskets at $12.99.  

Ikea--Risatorp Wire Basket

The Varv Ceiling Light is one of my favorite new lighting fixtures and I think it would look fabulous spray painted gold, silver or copper.  $49.99.  

IKEA--VARV CEILING LIGHT

And when it comes to paper products, the Hemsmak Labels ( $1.99) and Framstalla  Tape (6.99) are definitely on my list.

Ikea--Hemsmak Labels

Ikea--Hemsmak Adhesive Labels

Ikea--Framstalla Tape

If you haven’t received a copy of the 2016 Ikea catalog, you can request one here or pick one up in the store.

Happy shopping!
