Any Southerner worth her salt knows the importance of a well-stocked paper portfolio. From playdate PR to thank-you notes, your tot has got to have the write stuff.
Stock her arsenal with goods from local gal Alison English’s The English Pea, a complete collection of children’s stationery ranging from shower invites and birth announcements to calling cards and bag tags.
Customize a signature style by adding her name and an age-appropriate design (think airplanes, giraffes, or bugs) so your babe will be touted for her perfect politesse.
And always look good on paper.
