As we ring in 2014, you can’t forget that the new year means a new calendar is in order. And what better calendar theme than craft cocktails or beer pairings, junk food or even pie (like the ones above from Red Cruiser)? That’s right — you can get all of the above and more in month-to-month form, so that each time you flip your calendar, you’ll have a new delicious dish to stare at (and drool over). Here are my favorite food-filled calendars for 2014.
The kids are back in school, and you can’t deny that this time of year always has you feeling nostalgic for those classic after-school snacks and before-school breakfasts. A shiny red apple, a bowl of kid-friendly cereal, a good ol’ PB&J? You may no longer be eating these on a daily basis, but we know you still love them. So here’s a selection of stationery, for every occasion (like the cards above from Hello! Lucky left and right), inspired by those memory-inducing treats.
Citrus season may technically be in the winter, but really, is there anything more refreshing than that zesty fruit in the hot summer months? I think not. For those of you trying to beat the heat in every way possible, here are a few citrus-inspired cards and gifts to take a peek at while you sip that glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade.
Have you done your spring cleaning yet? Well, whether you’ve cleaned house or not, Oh So Beautiful Paper is here to help you get at least one thing perfectly organized this season: your grocery list. Planning weekly menus (like the one pictured above from Mavora Cards) and making shopping lists will certainly help save you money and stay on track while weaving through the aisles at the store or market. These pretty little notepads are the perfect tool for getting you started.
Irish or not, beer lovers around the world rejoice when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around. Even if Guinness isn’t their brew of choice, March 17 provides the perfect excuse to cheer with a pint. For those of you who are looking forward to St. Patty’s for just that reason, we’ve rounded up some well-crafted stationery that you can enjoy year-round (like Red Cruiser’s food and drink calendar pictured above), long after the green beer is no longer on draft.
What’s that saying? “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” I’d venture to say the way to anyone’s heart may just be through his or her stomach, and if you agree, you’ve come to the right place. With Valentine’s Day coming up fast, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite Valentine’s cards (like Egg Press’ pictured above) and gifts for you to say “I love you” to your better half — the salt to your pepper, the peanut butter to your jelly. Well, you get the point.
Happy (almost) New Year! We’ve made it through the holiday rush and now it’s time to talk about ringing in 2013 in style. Since champagne is of utmost importance at any New Year’s Eve bash, we’ve rounded up a few very festive coasters (like the ones pictured from Lucky Bee Press) so you can set that drink down while you watch the ball drop. Who knew coasters could be letterpress-printed, spotted with gold and even humorous? Pick up a set of any of these to have your guests talking about what’s under their drink this year or give them as fun favors at your big celebration.
It’s that time of year again — the holidays are fast approaching and you need gifts for all the homecooks, chefs or baking enthusiasts on your list this year. Well, we’ve rounded up the gifts of their food-loving dreams. It’s alright if some of these get added to your very own holiday wish list, too (we won’t tell).
Once a month, Kelly from Oh So Beautiful Paper, a blog all about fabulous paper goods, will be stopping by to share with readers two of her favorite things: food and stationery.
To kick things off, we’ve rounded up a wonderful and diverse selection of recipe cards. From illustrated to letterpress printed (like the ones above from 9th Letter Press), there’s something for everyone. While you may not write down all your recipes anymore by hand, it’s always nice to accompany an edible gift (perfect for the upcoming holidays) with the handwritten recipe, too. It’s important that your ingredient lists look as good as they taste, and with these picks below, you’ll find an option here that fits right into your recipe box or atop a sweet gifted treat.
