Email or Thank You Note?

18 Jul

It’s Friday and I was thinking ahead to the weekend.  We are invited to two parties and of course I am planning what I will bring. Then I started to think about making sure I have enough stationery and stamps for writing a thank you note afterwards to thank the host.  I wonder how many people actually still take the time to write their host a thank you card.  Or is it now more acceptable to simply send a text or email after a party?

I feel that a handwritten thank you note shows your host how much you really appreciate the time they took to have the party.  And honestly, who doesn’t like getting mail that isn’t a bill or advertisement?  It’s always fun to get a handwritten thank you note in the mail!  No matter what you believe, it’s always in good taste to thank your host either way.  So now I’d love to know what you think is acceptable … an email/text or a handwritten note?  Tell me what you think and why in the comments below!

#WeddingWednesday

16 Jul

Did you know today is #weddingwednesday?  Doing all things social media, I see all the trends and hashtags.  I have been married for quite some time and I started thinking about the trends when I said “I do” and realized how different they are now.

There was no Pinterest when I walked down the aisle.  I know how inspired (or “Pinspired”) I would have been with the truly amazing and creative ideas people pin.  At my niece’s recent bridal shower, I was in amazement at the ideas they came up with … all from Pinterest!  This Mimosa Drink station was probably my favorite from her shower.  Isn’t it adorable?

We’ve put together ideas for weddings on our Pinterest boards for you to get inspired from the engagement to the “I do” with ideas for invitations, color themes, favors and much more.   Tell us your creative ideas whether it was for your own wedding or if you helped plan someone’s bridal shower or wedding.  I’d love to hear what fun ideas you came up with!

A fantastical unique wonderful gift idea (need I say more?)

14 Jul

There’s nothing I like better than to give a wonderful but unlikely gift.  I know that everyone thinks I love stationery.  And, I do, don’t get me wrong.  But my favorite go-to gift for a few years now has been a fabulous set of personalized Post-it® Notes.

Now let’s face it, Post-its® are not something that most people think of getting for themselves.  And that’s the reason it’s just so incredibly perfect.

* They are useful.

* They are personalized.

* They are cute.

* They come in great designs and great colors.

* They are an ideal for women or men or teens.

* They are unique.

*  They are the kind of gift that will be remembered (in a good way!).

So pick your style, pick your color and we’ll create a little gift that will go a long way.

These little paper confections are a great gift for every occasion that I can think of – holidays, birthdays, graduations, housewarming and more.

Enjoy!

Warmly,

Renee
