WEEK IN REVIEW | 3.24.13

mint dress week in review for the party dress blogIs it just me or is March FLYING by?!  I feel like I blinked and it’s almost April.  This month has been a bit of a blur as we finish up photo shoots for my book, sent the Spring issue of The Party Dress Magazine off to the printer and are busy with lots of Spring party orders.  Creating this book has been a LABOR.OF.LOVE.  I am pouring every ounce of creativity I have into it, and I really can’t wait to share it with all of you!

As promised, here are a few things that we have been up to over the last week or so…..

  • Photo shoots, photo shoots, photo shoots.  We’re down to just 2 parties left for the book (to be shot this week), and then my camera is going on vacation! ;)  I’m posting sneak peeks over on Instagram, so make sure to follow along (@WHhostess).
  • I hosted the Chicago launch party for the new Vera Bradley baby collection.  My friend, Kim of The TomKat Studio, got us involved in this project and we had so much fun helping expectant moms, aunts and grandmothers shop the new collection, play baby shower games and do a fun craft project.  I’ll do a full post recapping the event soon, but for now, you can check out some photos from the event here, here and here.
  • Last Sunday, I helped my friend, Vana of Le Papier Studio, set up her son’s 1st birthday party.  It was darling and I can’t wait for her to share the pictures with you soon.  If you want a little peek, here’s a shot from Instagram.
  • The Spring Issue of The Party Dress Magazine is shipping out this week!  Have you ordered your copy yet?!
  • We launched a brand new product category: Full-Color Envelope Printing.  I’m totally and completely in love with this new way to further customize your party invitations.
  • With Easter just a week away, we have been posting all sorts of unique ideas for brunch tablesettings, cute Easter cookies and a darling centerpiece idea for re-purposing your Easter eggs!
  • We featured a gorgeous baby shower this week (that I was so pleased to have designed the paper goods for) in the oh, so trendy color palette of Mint + Peach.  I don’t know about you, but I am LOVING this combo lately.  It’s fresh and perfect for Spring.  You can see the decor and tablesettings, the baby shower activities, and the dessert table (be prepared to fall in love).  And if you love this color palette as much as we do, check out my pinterest board for more inspiration.
  • LOTS of Easter Cake Plate Clings are shipping out in the next couple of days.  If you would still like to add them to your Easter celebration, get your order in quick!!

This week is going to be busy, busy, busy with LOTS of custom invitation designs that need my attention, the final book photo shoots and {hopefully} the arrival of my sister’s first baby!  I hope you all have a fabulous week and will stop by for new posts all week long.
