National Stationery Show!

It feels like we're just catching back up to speed after being gone all of last week for the National Stationery Show in NYC, and then a friend's wedding in DC, and then Memorial Day! It was all really a whirlwind (and seriously how is it almost June already?!?), but boy did I have a good time! I really look forward to going to the stationery show every year - something about being surrounded by all the pretty new papers, invitation designs, and other fun gifty items that I just can't resist. It's exhausting on the feet, but I love traveling up and down all of the aisles and scoping out all the newest trends, tools, and gadgets - picture the wide-eyed Puss in Boots from Shrek and that's me haha.

Anyway, I always find myself in awe of some of the creativity of the exhibitors and booth designers, so I tried to snap a few quick photos this year...

BT Elements copyBT Elements had one of my favorite booths, with their sparkly logo and fun favor items!


IMG_2341Love how Dolce Press had their letterpress suites set up in wooden "frames".  A great way to display their suites!


IMG_2345I just love all of the burlap and lace that is still trending right now - it makes for some really beautiful invitation suites!

Soho  copyAnd it just wouldn't be the stationery show without visiting Soho Paper's gorgeously designed double booth! Here are just a few of their new colors, shapes, and sizes.

Until next year, National Stationery Show!
