Hi everyone! Welcome to Katarina's Paperie - a little online boutique filled with pretty things to help you create a joyful life. Named after my darling baby girl, Katarina, our shop carries all of the lovelies you need to savor life's everyday happiness. From creative party designs to delightful stationery and pretty packaging, we're sure you'll find an array of little details that will make your every day entertaining and living beautiful.
We are a girl meets boy kind of story. Except in our version, it's a girl meets adorable new baby daughter. When my life changed that August day, I realized that I had somebody very special to create memories for. Unfortunately I found being a new mom left little time to plan the perfect party and decorate the home. I had difficulty finding the tools needed to create all of those joyous memories I dreamed of for my daughter. After spending too many disappointing hours struggling to locate the unique party designs and pretty home accessories I envisioned, I realized that I needed to establish a shop that brought the joy back into entertaining and living - no matter how busy you were.
So in the summer of 2012, my new little boutique, Katarina's Paperie, opened. Since I can remember, hosting parties and decorating have always been two loves of mine – from designing my twelve room dollhouse when I was a child to organizing inaugural balls during my time in politics. They mix together all of my passions: baking, crafting, decorating, designing, and, of course, celebrating.
I believe that everyone should be able to create a joyful life for their family no matter how much time they have. Katarina's Paperie strives to make this possible by offering unique choices to solve your entertaining and decorating needs. Whether your celebration is big or small, the first of the year or the last or even handcrafted by you or us, we offer all of the pieces you need to make your life and celebrations simple, beautiful and, most importantly, full of joy.
I am so lucky to be using my talents and skills to do something that I love. The secret to a successful life is packing it full of special moments with those you love. Our job at Katarina's Paperie is to help you accomplish this by putting beautiful living and memorable celebrations at your fingertips.
On weekends, I can be found in the kitchen baking a cake or tending my herb garden. I love drinking freshly ground coffee (for some reason it just tastes better), long evening walks to see the sunset and grabbing creative moments at my craft table. But, most importantly, I love spending time with my family and celebrating the joyful life with them.
Thanks so much for checking out our little entertaining and home boutique. I'm so happy you're here and hope you enjoy your visit.
