The last bit of photos from NYC last month… Much to my delight, I unknowingly booked a hotel in Chelsea’s Flower District. We woke up to head to the Stationery Show Monday morning and the sidewalk was lined with the most beautiful blooms I had ever seen! I had a hayday taking photos each morning. Scroll to see some the colorful beauties and a few other photos from some of our favorite stops during this trip…

Thai rolled ice cream around the block from our hotel
Cha Cha Matcha did not disappoint!
Glossier Showroom was another favorite stop. So beautiful. I’ve been obsessed for a while so it was fun
I finally had a chance to go through some more of my photos from New York. I can’t believe the stationery show (and our engagement!) was already a month ago. We had so many new releases this year and they are all available on Etsy now. New gift wrap prints, place cards, cards in all categories and more! We used a similar booth set up as in years past. We have our own hard walls that are stored in NYC so it makes the set up process a bit easier. Although they have gotten pretty banged up so we will have to re-paint next year when we go. I still love my copper rods for gift wrap and white molding to make little shelves for the cards. I loved our new area of botanical prints and am so excited to have a series of these. As busy and exhausting as the show week can be, the energy is so great and it’s so fun to mingle with buyers and other stationery businesses. We love attending the Minted party and Oh So Beautiful Paper’s Paper Party, always so fun and beautifully decorated! (see a few photos below).
This is the best salad. We’ve been making a big bowl to have with dinners each week since having a zoodle salad in NYC. We got a tool to make the ‘noodles’ at Crate & Barrel for about $15. There is really no recipe involved in this, you can portion however you like. I used one cucumber, one zucchini and a handful of shredded carrots, sliced almonds, red cabbage and snow peas. I use a little ginger dressing to top it off (but put the dressing on it per serving, not in the big batch because it gets a little soggy). Perfect amount of crunch and also so refreshing for these hot summer days!
These past couples weeks have been quite a whirlwind to say the least. At the end of our trip to NYC for the National Stationery Show, Hunter and I got engaged. We’re so excited to start this next chapter of our lives. New York has always been a special place for us to so this just makes it that more fun. Our friend Ashten was there to help us commemorate the day and snap these photos. We walked the Brooklyn Bridge, went to Cha Cha Matcha and explored that entire cute area for the day. My ring was made by Anna Sheffield. I have been obsessed with her designs for years and knew I wanted something unique. I loved being able to pop into her shop and try on some bands that will compliment my beautiful black diamond! I am beyond excited to start the planning process with my best girls. You know I am over the moon about designing my own wedding stationery! I will be documenting and sharing details on that once it gets underway.
Thank you for all your loving comments and congratulations on instagram this past week.

And we’re off! (almost) I can’t believe another year of National Stationery Show is quickly approaching. Every year I look forward to spending the week in NYC and debuting new designs at the show. Here is a look at our mailers, bright and colorful as usual! And a sneak peek of a few of my new favorites launching this week at NSS. Signing off for a bit but be sure to follow along on instagram for behind the scenes and a look at more new products that will be hitting the shop soon!
