Kelly Lyden, owner and designer of WH Hostess, truly believes that manners and graces should be practiced. With a background in retail buying and graphic design she founded WH Hostess in 2009 focusing on assisting her customers in "executing the social graces of everyday". Kelly is a true proponent of the handwritten note and proper hostess gift. And shouldn't we all be? In a time of calling and texting I find it so elegant when I receive a handwritten note.
I love this characterization of her customer ... "The WH Hostess Lady"
“She makes hostessing look effortless. Her social calendar is always full. Her home is a place where manners are practiced with emphasis, and social graces thrive. She fancies the finer things, as well as the little things. She teaches her children the importance of written words, and the expression of gratitude for gifts and acts of kindness. (And she practices what she preaches!) She throws dinner parties and never arrives empty-handed when the invitation is reciprocated. She loves a good monogram, especially on her stationery. A monogram, after all, is the ultimate expression of individuality. She loves a good trend but likes to simplify with the classic look that resonates so deeply with her. She believes in the values of the past, and loves the designs of today."
As my brand continues to grow I find myself needing to write more and more thank you notes. An absolute blessing for sure, but I need to chose something that is truly me. It was time to order some stationery and make sure those notes I sent were not only well made but also quite darling. WH Hostess is the perfect source for all of my needs.
I spotted WH Hostess on Instagram and immediately fell in love with her designs. She drew me in with her fresh citrus pattern and her details. As I traveled down the rabbit hole of eye candy I knew I needed to make a purchase and fast. Heading to her site intending to purchase a few personalized notepads I couldn't stop adding things to my cart. Before I knew it I was making a list of things I needed; gift tags, notepads, gift stickers, cello bags and folded notes. Truly I think it may be my new addiction.
You can chose from her darling original designs and of course personalize it even further with a monogram. And if you need a party planned or some incredible inspiration she is your girl. This party she planned last year is my ideal party. Every single thing about it has my name all over it! Her level of detail speaks to my type A self. I may need her to plan my next soiree. I got lost for hours just perusing her parties.
Find yourself needing something other than personalized paper goods? No worry at all ... Kelly has the most darling gifts ready to make you the best gift giver in town. Can we please discuss this square palm print lucite tray? I love this as a besite birthday gift! I pick one bestie gift per year and this just became the bestie birthday gift for 2016. Now do you see why my wish list is so very long?
And these bags ... I die I tell you. I just die. Another thing added to my ever growing list.
