Have you ever wanted to host a stationery party? Hosting a stationery party can be a fun and creative way to bring people together and celebrate the joy of all things stationery-related.

How to Host a Stationery Party! 

1. Planning and Preparation:

  • Choose a Theme: Decide on a theme for your stationery party. It could be something general like "Creative Stationery Extravaganza" or more specific, such as "Vintage Paper Delights."  More stationery party theme ideas could include: Journal lovers meet-up, a pen-pal club, collage journal party (share your paper supplies), sticker swap party, hand lettering workshop, reading journal book club, fountain pen enthusiast party, office supplies party, back to school stationery fun etc. 

  • Guest List: Determine the number of guests you want to invite and create a guest list.

  • Invitations: Send out creative invitations that reflect the theme and set the tone for the party. You can use stationery items like our super cute letter writing paper or sets! Print out your own invitations and add some stickers and washi tape that demonstrations the theme of the party for a personal touch. 

  • Venue: Decide on the location for the party. It could be your home, a local cafe, your workplace or even an outdoor space (like a picnic) if the weather permits.

2. Decorations:

  • Stationery Display: Set up a charming stationery display with various items like notebooks, pens, pencils, stickers, and more. Use colourful tablecloths and decorative accents that match the theme. 

  • Creative Touches: Incorporate stationery elements into your decor, such as using paperclips as napkin holders, placing pencils in vases as centrepieces, or hanging banners made from colourful paper.

  • Set the Theme: Add props to set the theme. For example, a reading journal themed party might incorporate piles of books, candles and other dark academia themed decorations.

3. Activities and Workshops:

  • DIY Workshops: Plan creative workshops that involve stationery crafts. Ideas include making personalised notebooks, creating hand-lettered cards, designing bookmarks, or crafting paper flowers.

  • Letter-Writing Station: Set up a cosy corner with beautiful stationery, pens, and stamps for guests to write heartfelt letters or notes to each other.

  • Creative Games: Organise games like stationery-themed trivia, Pictionary using stationery items, or a scavenger hunt for hidden stationery treasures.

4. Food and Refreshments:

  • Stationery-Inspired Treats: Prepare or order snacks that fit the theme. Consider snacks shaped like pencils, cupcakes with miniature paperclips, and cookies with ink droplet designs.

  • Beverages: Serve drinks that match the colour scheme or theme. Consider having a "signature" drink for the event.

Rachel - September 22, 2023

This is such a great idea! I’ve been seriously thinking about having a stationery themed 50th Birthday Party. At this stage I think I might have two- one online for people too far to come in person, and a second smaller stationery party for people able to come in person.

Online we’ll probably have accessible games and I’ll mail the winners and runners-up flat stationery prizes. I love the idea of sharing exponential joy. It’ll be my Birthday (next year) and that’s what I love doing.

In person I hope to supply beautiful letter sets, stickers, washi tape, fountain pens, wax seals and maybe cards, and everyone can write to someone, or to a few people, to share love. We’ll have a beautiful cake and milkshakes, smoothies, cuppas and icecream. People can stay as long as they need. They can talk about who they’re writing to if they want, or just write.

Words of kindness, and giving gifts, are two of my main love languages. This would make me really happy, and hopefully lots of others too.

I love your ideas here. Wonderful! 🌈🧁♥️✨
