Erika Firm featured in Arts + Power issue of Riviera Magazine

Erika Firm featured in Arts + Power issue of Riviera Magazine San Diego 2011So happy to share that I was featured in San Diego Riviera‘s annual Arts + Power issue (December 2011).

The story covers inspiration (Mother Nature, Pinterest), design do’s (blues, yellows, and chevrons), next season forecast (melon/pistachio/gold palette), don’ts (neon for wedding … sorry!), and my favorite wedding details (the classics: proper menus).

Riviera Arts + Power 2011It was such a treat to be in my favorite issue of the year! Merci, Riviera.

Stationery Meetup May 22, 2012 in NYC

National Stationery Show 2012 Meetup DelphineOh So Beautiful Paper is co-hosting with me this year. We have chosen a beautiful location in Manhattan, Hudson Terrace, for the party. [Tuesday, May 22, 2012 from 7PM-9PM at Hudson Terrace in NYC].

I’m really looking forward to the 2012 National Stationery Show. I don’t have a booth, am not showing my line, but am celebrating being part of this wonderful industry by throwing a party with Nole. I’m super thankful to be part of the world of paper + design! The party started as a birthday party for me, but has grown into a celebration of my favorite things with some of my favorite people in the world: other stationery designers.

Special thanks (and extra big hugs) to our lovely sponsors for helping to make the meetup happen again this year: Crane, Felt & Wire, Ladies of Letterpress, Mohawk, Paper + Cup, Stationery HQ, The Sweetest Occasion, and Tradeshow Bootcamp.

All stationery industry peeps (designers, exhibitors, reps, buyers, store owners, bloggers, wedding planners, stationery + wedding industry press) are welcome. Space is limited at the venue, so you must RSVP for admission. If you’d like to be on the invitation list please shoot stationerymeetup [at] gmail [dot] com an email with your full name and name of your business & we’ll add you to the evite list.  If you attended last year you’re already on the evite list and will receive an invitation in early May.

Yes, we’ll have goodie bags again. Trust me, you do not want to miss these. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but you can be sure it will be filled to the brim with paper goodness. The first 100 guests will receive a goodie bag.

Whose name comes first on the invitation? Mom or Dad?

Dear Delphine Stationery Etiquette and Tips

Dear Delphine, I’m confused about how I should order my parents’ names on the invitation. When listing my parents’ names, who comes first? Mom or Dad?

Thanks,  Perplexed Bride-to-be

whose name goes first on wedding invitation

Dear Perplexed, It’s a common question (and the most common error we see when people place orders). Proper etiquette is to list a woman’s name first, man’s second. A simple way to remember this is that a man’s first and last name should never be separated. Each of these examples follow proper etiquette rules:

Anne and Bradley Cline   •   Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Cline   •   Mrs. Anne and Mr. Bradley Cline  •  Dr. Anne and Mr. Bradley Cline  •  Mrs. Anne and Dr. Bradley Cline

This same rule applies when addressing all your envelopes.
