The Dandelion Patch {Vendor Love}

If you haven't noticed, there have been dandelion patches springing up all over the DC area. First out in Virginia, then Georgetown and now at National Harbor! We don't mean the sweet little flowers that my daughter loves to pick but the super-stylish paper and gift shops named "The Dandelion Patch."

We are huge fans of these fabulous shops and our brides love shopping there for elegant invitations, swanky save-the-dates and even deluxe bridesmaids' gifts.  These fresh stores really do have an amazing selection of upscale paper products (think luxurious letterpress from Sugar and sophisticated Vera Wang designs), Vera Bradley totes in all colors and even fabulous favors.

Now that there are so many locations, it's even easier to pop in a check out their amazing selection. I just bopped over to the new National Harbor store the other day and picked up a gorgeous layered necklace.  We were lucky enough to co-host a "Paper Party" with the Georgetown Patch a few months ago and their amazing team (pictured below) led our brides through the process of wedding paper products.  And on top of it all, The Dandelion Patch is headed by the fabulous Heidi Kallett, who is truly one of the sweetest and most delightful people we know!

So if you're looking for invitations or just a pretty present, skip on over to "The Dandelion Patch" and have a blast!
