Celebration Greeting Cards

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I am so excited for this week because I’ll be traveling to St. Petersburg, Florida for a long weekend to celebrate my cousin’s wedding. A little sun and fun are just what I need right now. With celebration on my mind, I’m loving these pretty greeting cards from Sam Dubeau to start the week. The playful use of streamers, cupcake liners, confetti and brightly colored papers just make me happy. Pretty paper always makes a Monday feel a little less like a Monday.

National Stationery Show Meetup 2011

I’m excited to announce that I’ll once again be co-hosting a fabulous event during this year’s upcoming National Stationery Show. It’s Tuesday, May 17 from 7 to 9:30 pm at Brooklyn Winery. All stationery industry friends (designers, exhibitors, reps, buyers, store owners, bloggers, wedding planners, etc) are welcome. But kindly respond if you’d love to be there as space is limited! This is the go-to event to see and be seen during show week and the first 50 guests to arrive will get amazing goodie bags (trust me, you’re going to want one of these). See you there! xoxo

The event is being hosted by a pretty rad group of women (even if I do say so myself) including Delphine, Brooklyn Bride, Cat Seto, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup , and yours truly.

Huge thanks and much love to our event sponsors Felt & Wire, The Knot, and Mohawk. And love to our goodie bag sponsors, too: Anthology Magazine, B-List, Blossom and Branch, Brooklyn Bride, Brooklyn Winery, Cat Seto, Delphine, Eat.Shop Guides, For Your Party, Graphic Image, Green Paper Company, Kelly Guenther StudioLinnea’s Lights, Delphine, Mom Inc. Daily, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup, and Wendelline Papers.

Easter Basket Tag Printables

One final last minute Easter treat for you, cute little printable Easter basket tags from Carolynn of Two Brunettes. They are colorful and oversized – just print, cut, hole punch and attach to your goodie basket with an abundance of pretty ribbon. Download your Easter basket tags and don’t forget the Cadbury Mini Eggs! (My hands down favorite Easter candy.)

Sweet + Simple Easter Brunch

Can you believe it’s Easter weekend already? We’re traveling home for dinner with family and I’m looking forward to Easter with my nephew who is finally old enough to “get” what the Easter bunny is all about. I love this sweet little Easter spread shared by Irene (owner of Valdirose, an Italian bed and breakfast) Valentina of Cut and Paste and Michela of basta un poco di zucchera. All the way from Italy, the simple details of this pretty shoot just make me smile. Yummy treats tucked in glass jars, sprigs of colorful spring flowers, darling Easter eggs and little pink teacups. Just simple and easy and so sweet.

As a special treat, you can visit Cut and Paste for super cute Easter printables, too! Thank you so much for sharing, ladies! xoxo

Party Palette: Strawberry Cake

I’m still on a pink kick, it seems, and this pretty pink rainbow cake was the perfect inspiration for a sweets-inspired color palette. I just can’t get enough of simple cakes with dollops of homemade frosting and pretty cake bunting. A couple of bamboo skewers and little slips of ribbon are all it takes to create instant wow factor.
