Life of the Party

Seattle mom-and-daughter team Alicia Olsen and Kathy Perkins opened Paper Delights, last month, and we're so glad they did. Sparkly chandeliers light the pristine space; classic-yet-funky eggshell blue wallpaper adorns one wall. White shelves house oodles of every kind of card imaginable, with monumental selections for birthday wishes and new baby welcomes. Invite Little On's friends—or your own—to a party with adorable options from Paper So Pretty. Wrap gifts in elegant paper from Whimsy Press; we snatched up a few sheets in their cupcake print. Stock your desk with gorgeously feminine accessories from Russel + Hazel. Add something sweet to your gift--gourmet jellybeans, perhaps? Or locally made chocolate from Fran's or Theo? Kiddos will flip for presents topped with a fancy lollipop—chose from flavors including bubblegum and cotton candy. We also found baby accessories from dwelbaby, a baby book for adoptive families, babysitter note pads, baby gifts from Wiley Valentine, and note cards with lines just the right size for Little One to use. This well-stocked shop also offers custom services for weddings and special occasions, or just for fun, like the just-in-time-for-Mother's-Day Mom & Me books, a modern take on the old school "coupon books" you crafted as a kid. Whatever the occasion, it'll be more special when marked with a card from Paper Delights.
