A Thank You worth sharing

We wanted to share this incredibly sweet Thank You from one of our clients in Huntington because it so encapsulates what a joy and honor it is to get to work with families over the years, helping them celebrate the wonderful milestone events that can fill a lifetime.

“I just picked up my parents 50th wedding anniversary party invitations and they are absolutely beautiful!!! I have worked with the amazingly talented staff at Lion in the Sun in for over ten years. From my sister’s bridal shower invitations, to my parents 40th and now their 50th…I just can’t praise the women at Lion in the Sun enough!!!! Three years ago Mary made me the happiest bride to ever say “I Do”! Mary created the most outstanding invitation for my beach themed wedding. From the ribbon around each box that held each invitation to the hand painted sunflowers on my church programs, to my real starfish place cards, everything was PERFECT!!! Mary, Anna, Cindy, and Jane as well as the rest of the talented designers are wonderful! They have become like family and I can’t thank them enough for being part of my family’s celebrations!!!! If you are lucky enough to have good times in your life…Lion in the Sun will help make those memories last! Their professionalism, patience, attention to detail, and care for what they create cannot be found elsewhere! Thank you Mary, Anna, Cindy, and Jane for everything!!!! Can’t wait for the next party!!!!”

Wedding Crashers March ’14

blog_weddingcrashers_march14_1

We had a terrific time at Wedding Crashers this past Sunday, the amazing locally sourced, always creative and fun wedding event created by the great people behind Brooklyn Based.  We are lucky to have been part of this event since the beginning and always look forward to seeing lots of old friends and meeting many new talented vendors as well as all the great engaged couples we get to chat with. It really is one of our favorite events of the year and this year was no different!

Check out some of the great shots Dave took before the doors were open…

A Store is Reborn

Our Brooklyn shop has had a major makeover! New paint colors and a brand new floor inspired us to re-envision the store in wonderful ways, including a greeting card wall up front and and an expanded gift wrap station in the back. Please come pay us a visit.

It was a week that makes me proud of the shop and particularly our amazing staff whose on the fly decision making and above and beyond efforts to make things better is truly appreciated. The kind of week that makes me say in a mushy Oscar speech kind of way that I’m lucky to be working in this industry and to get to collaborate with people who I learn from and laugh with every day.

Thanks, guys!
