Lion in the Sun: A treasure to behold

Beautiful invitations, wonderful personalized service and environmentally friendly – what more could you want from a stationer?

A Lion in the Sun is based in Park Slope, Brooklyn – the same neighborhood as Stellina Events – and is only two stops off the train from downtown Manhattan. Owners Melinda and David Morris consider A Lion in the Sun to be a family business.

Melinda manages the store and has a passion and pride for creating important keepsakes for the memorable occasions of life, as well as imparting importance and elegance to everyday occasions. She is grateful every day to be able to help her clients navigate the events that might seem overwhelming at the time, but that will undoubtedly become part of their most cherished memories.

At Lion in the Sun, Melinda and her team of experts design invitations based on your style and desires whether you are looking for a simple, classic invitation or a Save the Date with an illustration of the Brooklyn Bridge. They listen to your ideas and provide you with a range of options as to how they could be implemented. They will find ways to work within your budget, no matter how large or small. There are a wealth of options available and with their knowledge and expertise you will be steered in the right direction to make the invitation of your dreams a reality.

While the store reflects a deep appreciation for fine paper products, Lion in the Sun is also respectful of their place on the planet and actively seeks out quality recycled paper goods and companies that participate in programs to keep our planet green.

With an inviting storefront and a warm reception, it is always a pleasure to walk into Lion in the Sun. If you are looking for gorgeous designs and friendly & talented stationery experts then look no further.

A special note from Amanda

Dear all brides- and grooms-to-be, maids of honor, bridesmaids, MOBs, MOGs, and all other followers of my Stellina Events blog,

I just wanted to write all of you a little note apologizing for the delay of my blog postings. As you may already know, Stellina Events just opened in New York and with my new location also came a transatlantic move for me from London to New York after seven years of living in Europe. I am back at home in NY now (Park Slope, Brooklyn to be exact) and ready to get back to writing giving you your weekly bit of inspiration for all of your wedding planning needs.

Have a great weekend and stay tuned for my next post on a local Park Slope invitation company called Lion in the Sun that creates beautiful, unique stationery for all of your wedding and party needs!
