I wrote a while back about the Votivo collaboration with Draper James, now another fabulous one has crossed my desk, and it’s equally adorable. Hester & Cook Design Group, who is literally right down the street from Draper James flagship store in Nashville, were approached by Draper James early 2015 — and both businesses quickly learned they were on the same design page.

“Their motto of grace and charm fits perfectly with our range of items that help one style an inviting table or add the finishing touch to a gift,” noted Courtney Cochran, Design Director at HCDG.

The resulting release ranges from paper placemats to traditional gift enclosures, and all have just the right amount of Southern charm and chic — with recycled content, no less. Bessie Bow Table Runners in two colorways can double as giftwrap. The red is on sale for $20, while the baby blue is $32.



Coordinating place cards were also created — the real challenge is picking a story to go with. The hearts is on sale for just $5/set of 12, while the blue below is $8.

These are dreamy die-cut Magnolia paper placemats, a specialty of Hester & Cook. $29/set of 12.

If you go with the red story, these Candy Cane paper placemats seamlessly herald the Valentine season — and are on sale for $18/12.Hannah-Die-Cut-Heart-Placemat

I love this modern spin on traditional enclosure cards. Modern yet timeless, anyone would love to receive one of these light-hearted, chic missives. $14/6.

Finally, there is just something about the navy, red and white on this Hannah Hearts Gift Tag that I find irresistible. Technically this colorway should read “American flag” — but it goes to an entirely different (and very sweet!) place. On sale for just $7/set of 12, they come with 72″ of red striped baker’s twine!
