Only left in stock

The only thing better than an epic dinner party is reminiscing on the party the morning after. The stories. The laughs. The one-champagne-too-many. Thank your guests for being a part of your orbit with these irreverent thank-you notes. Whether you regret your behavior or regret nothing, follow-up up with a handwritten note that includes at least one inside joke from the party. Enclose a Polaroid from the party. It can double as blackmail if needed.

The smoking bunny is a nod to Candice Bergen’s long-eared white mink bunny mask by Halston, and the smoking swan references the name Capote coined for his muses – or “swans” – including Lee Radziwill and Babe Paley.

About the "Martinis at the Plaza" Collection

On November 28, 1966, Truman Capote hosted arguably the most iconic party of the century– his Black & White Ball at The Plaza Hotel in New York. You’ve seen the iconic images. Mia Farrow, in a butterfly mask, arriving on the arm of a cat-masked Frank Sinatra. Black tuxedos & white ball gowns. Rhinestones and plumes. Whether you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve party for 100 at the country club or a dinner party for eight in your home, the Martinis at The Plaza party suite sets the foundation for a cheeky and glamorous evening that feels like it’s from a time that no longer exists.

 The Illustrations 

Modernizing it for 2022 and beyond, the suite introduces a charming print inspired by iconic photographs from the party. The smoking bunny is a nod to Candice Bergen’s long-eared white mink bunny mask by Halston, and the smoking swan references the name Capote coined for his muses– or “swans”-- including Lee Radziwill and Babe Paley. All the mask illustrations found in the print draw inspiration from actual masks worn by guests on that drizzly night in 1966.

The Collaboration (a.k.a. The Friendship!)

A friendship born from the sunny-side of social media.  Melissa and Laura quickly bonded over a long list of similarities – historic home-ownership, dog and Maine Coon cat motherhood, snail mail, vintage packaging, thrifting, and a love for history (particularly the 1960s).  Classic with a touch cheeky is their modus operandi.

Melissa Smrekar is a creative girl from Dallas, Texas. She fundraises for a presenting Broadway theater and writes and performs nonfiction comedic essays. In addition to working with Laura Vogel Design, Melissa has collaborated creatively with Barrington Gifts, Willa Heart, SUITE by Jennifer Diederich, and Lycette, where she has a collection of 10 cheeky needlepoint canvases. She has been featured in Southern Living, The Huffington Post, and The Dallas Morning News.

There are a few things that I love more than pretty packaging. When I decided to launch Laura Vogel Design, a custom sturdy box, some custom tissue paper, and (!) a bow was a must. As Melissa Smrekar so perfectly said, I wanted the packaging to be “reminiscent of a time when buying something felt like an event”. 

Therefore… All stationery orders are carefully wrapped in a Laura Vogel Design box with Lily of the Valley tissue paper and a blue gingham bow.  Ditto for return address label orders. Special collaborations come in their own limited edition boxes as seen in product photos. 

We are more than happy to include a gift message (or provide a blank gift enclosure card for you to write yourself).  Simply add your note/request in the "Special instructions for seller" text field at checkout.
