The Creative Advent

Who doesn't love an advent calendar?? As a little girl, I always had one growing up and to this day, I still look forward to this holiday tradition. So today, I was inspired by the excitement of my little niece and nephew to blog about advent calendars, and boy are there some really great ones out there! Check out some of the creative Christmas calendars:

The first one is just TOO CUTE! These little knit mittens and hats from Garnett Hill are hung by the chimney with care, as they count down to Christmas with little cross-stitched numbers and any goodies that might be stuffed within them.

The second is a garland of hanging pyramid boxes filled with chocolate (yum!) found at Julie Ree and I just LOVE this idea!! And what makes it even better is that you can download a template for these adorable pyramid boxes right here so that you can get creative and design your own.

It's time for the holidays!

The holidays have finally arrived! To kick of the first holiday season for Lilah Paper, we have come up with some really great holiday items.

The Holiday Gift Tags come 8 to a set (2 each of the 4 designs) and include the adorable red and white twine (precut and ready for that special gift).

The Holiday Gift Tags can be purchased at: The Hemline in Dallas or locally here in Kansas City at RSVP in the Village and of course on our website (!

Have fun shopping and stay warm this season!

Beauty ON a Bottle

So while out purusing the liquor store for our annual T&T (Turkey and Tinis) this past week, I stumbled upon this amazing bottle! I am a complete sucker for great design and beautiful pacakging, so of course without even knowing a thing about this particular libation, I snagged it up! Who ever said that label shopping was just for wine :-) This color combination is one of my all time favorites! Red and Teal... and I just love the twist of orange blended in to this particular shade of red. This stunning label is letterpressed onto gorgeous paper with a vintage die-cut, and oh yea... the vodka is pretty tasty as well... and it is organic to boot! I have a feeling that this bottle will be sticking around long after it is consumed.
