This morning I stopped by the National Stationery Show to scope out the hottest new trends and designs in wedding invitations and beyond from stationers around the country. Since Memorial Day is right around the corner my mind was on summer and these sunny and bright products were some of my favs.
Clockwise, from top left: As colorful as you would expect, this Lilly Pulitzer martini shaker would make an adorable gift for your bridesmaids.
How much do you love these flip-flops and tote from the Bonnie Marcus Collection? The soles have a little heel so your girls can wear them on your big day, and they can use the tote that says "bridesmaid for a day... friend forever."
For a more elegant seaside soiree, this new guest book from Crane & Co. that features a gold seashell motif would fit in perfectly. The book is available with several other motifs as well including the equally summer appropriate palm tree.
And to add a little color to your summer celebration, these fruit slice coasters from Kate Spade are sure to add a special, seasonal kick to your tables! —Cari Wolfert
