Where can I go 4 custom stationery inspired by South Asian designs?

Meet our guest bloggers, Jaee Likhite & Reena Vadehra from 3 Bees Paperie, giving a snapshot of the story behind the company and how they could help your wedding stationery needs.

3 Bees Paperie is an eco-friendly, social event stationery company inspired by South Asian designs. Launched in 2009 by two friends – Jaee Likhite and Reena Vadehra – the company aims to usher in a new era of unique and luxury stationery for South Asian brides and grooms by offering high-quality, eco-friendly paper with contemporary designs.

The inspiration for the company came from a common reality for many South Asian brides – the range of choices for modern wedding stationery is slim. The duo saw a lot of their friends get their invitations made from India and heard about the problems of gaudy design choices, poor paper quality, slow turnaround time, and poor customer service.

The idea, then, was to combine South Asian aesthetics with the Western appreciation for high-end paper. The result is a modern, unique and fresh alternative for wedding stationery for both South Asian and non-South Asian brides and grooms. 3 Bees Paperie has since branched out to baby, personal, and holiday stationery as well.

The girls at 3 Bees Paperie also wanted a commitment to green stationery –their lines carry recycled and FSC-certified papers. They also work with printers who use eco-friendly technology.

From Persian emblems to tribal art to henna patterns – 3 Bees Paperie’s ready-to-order line, Couture Weddings, offers 10 distinct designs to suit any wedding theme. Included in each stationery suite are wedding invitations, inserts, save the dates, RSVP cards, and thank you cards.

Aside from the 10 designs available in their ready-to-order collection, 3 Bees Paperie also offers custom design services to couples, including a complementary consultation, with their Made for You service. Working closely with the married couples-to-be, Jaee and Reena extensively research designs and motifs to match the wedding theme. The finished invitation suites are unique and personal, matching the preferences and personalities of the engaged couple.

View 3 Bees Paperie’s bridal collection at tanaRi events’ Tie the Knot Bazaar on November 8 at Soigne K.  In addition to showcasing wedding stationery, Reena will be available to answer any questions about paper, design, and the various printing processes. 3 Bees Paperie will also be offering a special gift in one of the raffle prizes. 

tanaRi events’ would like to convey our thanks to 3 Bees Paperie for their help in designing our Tie the Knot Bazaar event flyer.

Food and conversations with chef Hemant Mathur from Tulsi, NYC.

Recently I had a chance to sit down and talk to Hemant Mathur, the executive chef and co-owner of Tulsi.  Already a fan of his cooking, it was a great opportunity for me to get to know the chef’s backstory.   As a bonus, I got to learn how to make a tandoori naan.  Fresh bread and great conversation… good times!

I am sure all food lovers will enjoy the special gift he has for you at the end of this article.  Read on…

  • What fueled your passion for cooking?

 

When I was 17, I started working as an apprentice at the Rambagh Palace Hotel in Jaipur. Traditional schooling had not been exciting to me, but once I started working in the kitchen, I found myself really enjoying my work and my life.  That started me on the path to becoming a chef.

  • In brief, how would you describe your philosophy on food?  


I strive to create Indian cuisine that is bold, yet has clean and distinct flavors. It should be multidimensional – layers of flavors, textures and colors – with an elegant presentation and always made with the best-quality ingredients available.

  • How did Tulsi come about?

Tulsi is the result of a reunion of longtime friends. Tulsi’s co-owner Vijay Rao was a loyal customer of mine when I worked at Diwan Grill in the 1990s, and he has wanted to collaborate with me on a restaurant since then. Rao reconnected me with tandoor master Dhandu Ram, whom I first met when we were both aspiring chefs-in-training at New Delhi’s celebrated Bukhara Restaurant. The three of us finally have the chance to work together at Tulsi.

  • What sets Tulsi apart from other Indian restaurants in the city?

We offer a distinctive approach to Indian food – authentic in flavor, but reinterpreted for sophisticated New Yorkers, movers and shakers, and world travelers.

  • What’s your favorite dish to prepare for your family

Poori Aloo.

  • Could you share an easy yet delicious recipe for a bride-to-be, who wants to wow her fiancé?
