Celebrating a London Birthday

Papyrus x Lela Rose Fashion Week Gift Card Collaboration Last week as fate and fortune may have it, I found myself in London for my baby sister’s 27th birthday DURING the first days of London Fashion Week.

What better birthday gift for my sister than to take her on her very first trip abroad? The fact that it coincided with London Fashion Week too only added to the excitement (and the inevitable stress of figuring out what to wear…).

But what could I give my sister on her actual birthday to best encapsulate such a ground-breaking trip for our family? Besides a legendary martini at Duke’s?

Luckily Papyrus’ newest collaboration melding the ornate femininity of fashion designer Lela Rose’s creations with the Papyrus’ premium quality cards provided the perfect answer.Papyrus x Lela Rose Fashion Week Gift Card CollaborationIn honor of Fashion Month, Papyrus has launched a ground-breaking collection with designer Lela Rose — the first ever collaboration of its kind in the greeting card industry!

Anything that combines the forgotten art of the hand-written note with the fashion world was bound to win my heart…Papyrus x Lela Rose Fashion Week Gift Card CollaborationAnd the moment I saw the cards I was truly and positively smitten!

They were the perfect finishing touch to my sister’s fashion-inspired birthday bash.

It was so touching to watch her open them on the morning of her actual birthday on the very first day of London Fashion Week.

What a perfect way to mark such a special day for the most fashionable member of our family, wouldn’t you agree?Papyrus x Lela Rose Fashion Week Gift Card Collaboration(And hilariously enough, before the release of the Papyrus x Lela Rose collaboration, I had already found my sister another Papyrus birthday card… one with a slightly “bloodier” message… that I just had to give her too).

Happy Birthday Dear Sister!
