Our Top Party Stationery Picks for Summer

Ikea's new Paper Shop Collection is taking paper party accessories to a whole new level—these and more top picks for summer's festive occasions.

With the soon-to-be-released Paper Shop Collection from Ikea officially hitting stores June 1, our heads have been abuzz with thoughts of paper party stationery for summer.

Ikea’s new line consists of vibrant hanging decorations (our Editor-in-Chief Anicka loves its Ombre pieces), colourful gift wraps and boxes, and an exciting new set of coordinated stationery. Here’s our list of party-perfect accessories for any summer get-together, birthday party, dinner or garden wedding.

We can’t get enough of the Paper Flowers Kit ($14 and up) from Michaels—a great way to spruce up every occasion with a touch of class.


West Elm knows how to dress up a drink with their Susty Party Paper Straws ($6). Easy to dispose of (because they’re fully compostable), now all you have to worry about is looking as stylish as they do.

One of our favourites is the Paper Ribbon ($7) selection from Plum Home + Design, a great source for decorating a room, wrapping a package, or raising the bar on your dinner napkins.
