Party Stationary | Party Box Co

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Lyndi from The Party Box Co as she launched her sensational party stationary business. Lyndi was so great to work with and just like with Hired&Co, I sent Lyndi my mood board and she came back with some ideas of how stationary could compliment the theme. Lyndi complimented the elements so beautifully and brought in a feminine feeling through watercolour cactus, “3”s and little signs, bunting and many other elements to place around the party. Lyndi also printed stickers for water bottles and supplied them ready, as well as put little “B” stickers onto boxes that matched the theme for sweets & chips. And finally, the little tags for the party packs were just gorgeous, each with a threaded ribbon and hand-glued flower. Lyndi’s attention to detail is what makes her so good at this. I have no doubt she will soar!
