A Moonlit Night Celebrating John L. Strong

A Moonlit Night Celebrating John L. Strong

I've long been a fan of the beautiful traditions upheld by historic stationery house, Mrs. John L. Strong. That's why when the opportunity arose to collaborate on a set of writing tablets with the New York City-based company that has been crafting stunning paper goods since 1929, I didn't dare hesitate...

The collection, inspired by whimsical 1920s-era illustrations, traditions of storied craft, and the magic of inspiration, is so truly special to us. To celebrate, I gathered my closest friends in my backyard, underneath a shining moon. Surrounded by stunning Hollyflora arrangements, we enjoyed seasonal food by Saehee Cho of SOO N, each other's company, and a very idyllic autumn California evening.
