Just the idea of having my own personalized social stationery makes me feel posh. Haute Note, a Canadian company that offers a modern take on the tradition, has many elegant designs that feature everything from animal patterns (love the zebra!) to celebratory illustrations to kitchen tools. I love the unique fold on their Haute Note signature cards, too.

Shop by style or occasion and add personalized information like your name, a special phrase or announcement, etc. You can turn Haute Note’s stationery into whatever you’d like — moving announcements, wedding invitations, or simply notes to friends.

Styles pictured above, from top to bottom: Eucalyptus, Kaleidoscope, and Coral.

Charlyn Koo Glitzy & Golden and Autumn After Rain Stationery

Charlyn Koo Glitzy and Golden Stationery
Charlyn Koo Autumn After Rain Stationery

I’m digging Charlyn Koo’s new stationery lines. The elegant metallics and nature inspired illustrations of the Glitzy & Golden (pictured top) collection are so pretty that they’d make wonderful framed wall art, and I love the whimsical illustrations and energetic color gradients in the Autumn After Rain (pictured bottom) collection which, come to think of it, would also make beautiful framed wall art. I’d feel quite special if I received a greeting or correspondence on this stationery.

Selections from the Charlyn Koo stationery line are available in a number of shops and online at The Succulent Wife.

Wedding Paper Month Comes to an End

Focus on Wedding Paper, 2007 Edition

I hope that everyone enjoyed a March filled with wedding paper features at Paper Crave. The number of individuals and businesses creating absolutely beautiful and unique wedding items is amazing, and I can’t believe that March is already over because, though I spent an entire month featuring wedding items, I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface. Let’s just say that I’ll definitely be featuring plenty of wedding items in the future.

I hope that you were as inspired as I was!

Vosges Exotic Truffle Wedding Favors

Vosges Truffle Wedding Favors

Alright, so this post isn’t strictly about paper, but I just had to talk about Vosges’ Exotic Truffle wedding favors boxes because, well, their chocolates are fantastic. In my defense, the packaging on these favors is quite pretty and would be welcome at any wedding reception.

The favors come in five delectable flavor combination choices:

black pearl (ginger + wasabi + sesame seeds + dark chocolate) and naga (curry + coconut + milk chocolate)


wink of the rabbit (soft caramel + Georgia pecan + milk chocolate) and ambrosia (white chocolate + Cointreau + macadamia nut)


budapest (sweet Hungarian paprika + dark chocolate) and gianduia (crunchy praline + milk chocolate)


red fire (cinnamon + ancho chili powder + dark chocolate) and xocatyl (Mexican vanilla + milk chocolate)


chef pascal (Kirsch + dried Michigan cherry + dark chocolate) and woolloomooloo (coconut + macadamia nut + milk chocolate)

Each favor is simply yet elegantly packaged with two truffles, corresponding truffle stores, and is tied with a pretty purple ribbon. What an indulgent treat for your guests! Boxes can be customized with your names and your wedding date or a custom logo.
