Kate and I had a blast putting together all of the cute little touches for our sister’s baby shower a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t wait to share the final pics with you. We went a little overboard with the theme, but our sister was so surprised and thrilled with all of the fussing! My favorite part was the two color letterpress in coral and pool invitation that Haute Papier (warning – shameless self-promotion) created just for her, though I think the mom-to-be’s were all of the clear balloon that looked like bubbles, including the giant ones that were three feet wide! Now, we just need to be patient for another few days until this baby gets here! Congrats to Ash & Darryl on the little miss!
This past weekend, my sisters and I hosted a SURPRISE 30th Anniversary Party for my parents. Let me just say, I’m never doing a surprise party again! While the planning was SO much fun, the stress of keeping it all a secret and telling fibs was just too much! And to top if off, Old Man Weather was so cooperative with a week full of rain, that we had to change venues the day before! Alas, the party went off without a hitch and was, well, a surprise! They didn’t have a clue! Stay tuned to see their reactions in Part 2 tomorrow!
As Haute Papier gears up for the National Stationery Show, we’re excited to debut our new signature stationery line. Simply sign a piece of 8.5×11 paper and we’ll turn it into letterpressed stationery! In preparation, we’re looking for a few more interesting signatures to letterpress as samples, so lucky you, we’re giving away letterpressed notes today! Contest runs until we get the first 10 faxes, so hurry hurry for your chance to win!
I’m headed to Spain for Thanksgiving to visit my little sister, but before I left, I wanted to share this great promo that Haute Papier is running for the next week… Get 150 coasters for the price of 100. Simply enter the promo code “thankful” when ordering on our website here. These coasters make a great hostess gift during the holiday season!
I’ve been M.I.A. the last couple of days as I’ve been in Buffalo purchasing our second letterpress for Haute Papier. I’ll be back tonight. Here are a couple of pictures of the new press to tide you over!
