About Us

Kelly and Cards The WH Hostess Social Stationery brand is known for translating fresh designs onto paper. Our collection focuses on items to help you execute the social graces of everyday life: announcing a new baby, celebrating a birthday or special occasion, sending the perfect thank you note, or giving a thoughtful, personalized gift. Our luxe, printed products are available in our shop, as well with a variety of online retailers and brick & mortar stores around the county.

Known for designing personalized stationery and party invitations for the modern hostess, we aim to help you create a stylish party using coordinating, decorative elements. Our designs feature modern trends with touch of preppy pizzazz, yet overall have a classic feel that resonates so deeply with our owner and designer, Kelly Lyden. Our invitation designs inspire full party themes, and we offer coordinating paper goods, such as banners, signage, food table accessories, custom fabric, and foil-stamped napkins, to help you execute a stunning event right down to every detail.

Kids parties are Kelly’s specialty: she pull in elements that you would typically see at adult events, but executes the design in a way that appeals to children. She believes in branding a party with paper goods – pulling together elements such as cupcake toppers, decorations, custom fabric, dessert table signage and party favor packaging that all coordinates back to the invitation and theme.

Our BABY by WH Hostess collection oozes that fresh baby look and feel. Classic gingham checks, soft stripes, sweet baby monograms - all done in Kelly's signature style offered on birth announcements, stationery, baptism invitations and the most gorgeous collection of baby shower invitations and party decor around.

The Holiday collection provides clients with unique, personalized ways to spread holiday cheer. From modern photo cards, to gift tags, personalized packaging for holiday sweets, and personalized gifts for everyone on your list, WH Hostess is a premier destination for holiday gifting.

In 2012, Kelly Lyden created the patent-pending product, Cake Plate Clings. A series of decorative linings designed for cake stands, pedestals and serving dishes, they offer a fresh, reusable update to the traditional disposable paper doilies and liners. They are used for decoration, placed under the food for ornamentation, and are offered in vibrant colors and patterns from WH Hostess Social Stationery. Cake Plate Clings are reusable, washable, non-adhesive, slide-free and use environmentally-friendly ink and material, and can be personalized with monograms and initials.

Kelly’s first book, “Stylish Kids’ Parties” (F+W Media, Inc.) launched in December 2013 and features 12 darling kids parties and baby shower themes, each including decorations, DIY party ideas, recipes and more.

Due to the customized nature of our products, please note that all sales are final. All products are crafted by hand, so please plan on an average of a two week turnaround.
