Arguably the hottest brand in stationery right now, Sugar Paper Los Angeles is best known for their contemporary letterpress and foil designs. For holiday gifting, we are crazy about notesets and thank you notes in foil by Sugar Paper Los Angeles. They are just so irresistibly festive {and shiny!!!}.

Another hot brand in stationery that we love to gift: Rifle Paper Co. We are especially crazy about Rifle Paper Co.’s assorted card sets…

We love Rifle Paper Co. for so many reasons. We especially love the illustrations, which make them perfect for gifting. Does someone on your holiday list love dogs? Is there a Francophile on it? A gardner? If so, Rifle Paper Co. has just the stationery set for them. We love that!

Finally, a brand that we have loved for years who continues to up the ante, Haute Papier, makes great stationery gifts…

So, for the stationery enthusiast in your life, look no further than Salutations for great gifts and stocking stuffers. We can’t wait to show you all the options!

Welcome to another Inspired Parties post! This week we have Valentine’s Day on the brain {and heart} so we thought we would round up some of our favorite inspiration for a Valentine’s meal for two, or for a dinner party honoring your beloved friends!

We have also included a shopping list for your Valentine’s trip to Salutations, where you can pick up all the essentials for your lovely party!

Salutations Valentine Inspiration

First things first: setting the table! We love how festive a beautiful arrangement of flowers can be. We love the idea of adding some whimsy to an arrangement with loose greenery, like in the top photo from Green Wedding Shoes (see more here). We also love the addition of gold in the arrangement above from 100 Layer Cake (see more here).

Salutations Valentines Inspiration

In addition to beautiful flowers, we love the thought of including unexpected touches to dress up a Valentine’s table, like the cranberries and gold accents in the table above from Southern Weddings Magazine (see more here).

Once the flowers are arranged and the table is set, add a few festive touches from Salutations to complete the look. Our favorites are below…
