In the years to follow, she created the patent-pending product, Cake Plate Clings, and published her first book, Stylish Kids’ Parties. Readers and clients crave her fresh party style and flock to her lifestyle + entertaining blog, The Party Dress, daily for inspiration.

A gorgeous piece of stationery makes me swoon, and when I receive a lovely note in the mail, my opinion of the sender is highly elevated!

Everyone should have a complete stationery wardrobe for each occasion, and ours are varied to inspire our clients’ personal style.

The art of the thank you note should never die.

I love a good monogram, especially on my stationery. A monogram, after all, is the ultimate expression of individuality.

A beautifully appointed invitation sets the tone for a celebration and leaves no doubt in your guest’s mind that they were not an afterthought.

A gorgeous holiday card should feature festive designs and highlight your family photos, allowing you to send your warmest wishes during the holiday season.

I believe in the values of the past, and love the designs of today. Our WH Hostess retailer collection was designed with this in mind.
