Stationery is More Than Only Invitations

5 Nov

I love  stationery.  I love how a piece of paper and some letters can turn into something beautiful with colors and different sizes and fonts.

When making your stationery selections, remember when working with your designer to try to find out all elements that you may need to complete your stationery suite.  Some stationers will reduce your costs the more elements you add to the suite.  Think of the items that you may need for the actual day of the wedding such as menu cards, place cards, escort cards, and table numbers.  After your event, do not forget stationery that may include thank you cards, or announcement of new home.

Invitations That Spells Your Name Out

26 Mar

A.B.C.D.E.F.G…yes these playful colorful invitations use the letters of your name to create a personalized invitation.  Alpha Vites came up with a great invitation design concept.  All you have to do is pick a theme, give your letters, and a custom die cut will be made to create your invitation.  Each letter will have its own unique pattern that stands out.

These invitations would be great for a birthday or graduation party.

Order Extra Invitations

19 Mar

I hope that you did not get frantic when you read the title of the post.  Ordering up to 25 extra invitations is a great idea and will help to keep your costs down.  How?

Through planning events for clients in the past, sometimes  a guest never received their invitation that was previously sent or a guest was mistakenly left off the guest list.  When these things happen if you have extra invitations they can be sent out to your guests.  If not, and if you have to go back to your invitation stationer/designer, it may end up costing you more money in the long wrong to order a couple extra invitations.  Remember invitation are better priced in bulk than individually.  So order up, it will benefit you in the long run.

We Love Wedding Wednesday’s – Luggage Tags Stationery

14 Mar

Luggage tags are not only for your suitcases when you go to the airport.  Luggage tags can be used through stationery for your invitations for a travel theme. We love this concept and the clean and fresh look of some of the stationery that we found.

Children Theme Parties

5 Mar

Children theme parties have always been happening. Parents want to celebrate their children’s big day with the newest and most popular comic book character, children’s TV show characters, cartoons, and the list can go on. Children themes can be very fun for both boys and girls regardless of their age.

Things To Remember

1. Make games, activities, and gift bags age appropriate.

2. Whether girls or boys, some toys for gift bags are unisex (girls like boy toys too!)

3. Keep things colorful.

4. Carry your theme out from beginning to end. Starting from the invitations to the gift bags.

5. If parents will be attending the party, have activities for them to interact with their children.

6. Have fun.
