Resplendent June’s here reminding us to celebrate our favorite heroes of the father-variety! Pick a card, any card for the warrior who’s had your back, be it dad, uncle, grandpa, husband, brother, or mom or friend who played the role! They’d all love a fun token of your appreciation. Even if they’d never admit it in public.
As we get ready to attend the National Stationery Show next week, we thought we’d take a walk down memory lane (strewn with plenty of fleurs, of course). Please enjoy a look back at our last show.
It was a real labor of love and art to compose the blooms into lush compositions of color gradations on the walls. Masha’s idea for light shelving was to use feathers to hold up the cards. Alignment was difficult to achieve by hand but everyone loved the unique effect. Best of all, the cards were the heaviest thing about this booth design.
Silk petals served as flooring. It was a welcome zen activity to brush them back in place with a small broom after each busy day.
The lighting was a bit harsh for photos, but we spotted many a fake “selfie” being taken in order to photograph our booth design OTDL. That’s a compliment, right?
Here’s Masha with friend (and fellow curly girl) Emily McDowell enjoying the show.
See you in NY!
May is here with myriad of blooms in tow! Here on masha.com, we have a few fruits (and flowers) of our labor to share too – 23 new cards to be exact. They look as good going as they do coming thanks to the lush art on the back as well as the front. Pick some for Mother’s Day and beyond! Welcome May flowers card showers.
Is there a more classic pairing for springtime than flowers + cards?
Living here in California we never cease to be amazed by the endless variety of floral visions that arrive this time of year. You might’ve noticed that Masha returns to blooms over and over again in her watercolors. With so much fresh inspiration every year, what’s not to love? For this Mother’s Day we’re pairing some of our favorite (and new) cards with our dream bouquets. Let’s stop and smell the options.
For the goddess who gave you life, only the most exotic blooms will do – Orchids are a magical flower available in the potted phalaenopsis and dendrobium (or Spray) varieties. Make her day with these beauties from Bouqs.com or your local florist.
And for the mother figure in your life (Aunties and Moms-in-law count too!) who’s as warm as sunshine, radiant succulents are a perfect way to show your love. They’re beautiful and require almost no upkeep like this stunner.
Nothing says “I love you mom” like classic roses! Pink roses are used to convey gentle emotions such as admiration, joy and gratitude. Light pink blooms are indicative of sweetness and innocence. Deep pink blooms convey deep gratitude, appreciation as well as elegance and grace. Pick your bouquet to tell your mom all that!
If you are more of a do-it-yourself gifter, celebrate your mother this year with a timeless bouquet of wild flowers, harvested from the great outdoors. She’ll appreciate the thought and artistry. Pair your creation with our brand new sweetie of a card!
The Chinese call Peonies the King of flowers or the Flower Fairy. Typically in season from late April to early June, they will be sure to make Queen Mom’s day absolutely beautiful. You could find an artisanal rainbow’s worth at purepeonies.com.
And of course we can’t forget…the mom-to-be in your life! Freesia, with its simple, elegant multiple blooms along the stem, has long been a symbol of innocence and trust. One of the most fragrant flowers, freesia is perfect when Spring and newness are in the air!
