Black Paper Party Has Just What You Need To Make Your BAE Swoon This Valentine's Day!
Black Love Day (Feb. 13) and Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) are less than a week away! If last-minute shopping is on your agenda this weekend, we wanted to quickly remind you to go above and beyond for your special someone by getting a card that shows just how much they mean to you.
We recently discovered Black Paper Party, a Black-owned party and celebration company that not only sells heartwarming cards, but also designs party supplies, décor, and accessories that celebrate our Blackness.
For Valentine's Day, the brand—created by J'Aaron Merchant, Jasmine Hudson, and Madia Willis—launched a stunning line of products that beautifully represents Black love. Check out the collection below!
“Black Paper Party hopes to make each holiday and occasion more inclusive and reflective of the diaspora,” J'Aaron Merchant, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Black Paper Party, shared with BET Lifestyle about the inspiration behind the brand.
Madia Willis, Co-Founder and CEO of Black Paper Party added that Black representation is important during holidays like Valentine's Day because it ensures we all feel loved and appreciated.
“It’s important to recognize and celebrate the diversity of love and relationships. It can help us feel seen, validated, and represented,” she explained. “It can also help to promote understanding and appreciation for the diversity within the Black community.”
We couldn’t agree more, which is exactly why we instantly fell in love with the WOC-owned brand.
FYI: The Black Paper Party’s V-Day collection is currently available at both Walmart stores and Walmart.com. You can also get a jump start on next year’s holiday shopping by visiting blackpaperparty.com.
