Finding Perfect Placecards

placecard-title One of the key elements to any beautifully set table is of course, the placecard.  It adds a creative flair to the table, and if used as an escort card for a wedding, it sets the tone for what’s about to come.

During the planning of my wedding last year, one of my biggest challenges was finding a beautiful placecard that didn’t break the bank.  I didn’t want the basic, white placecard – I wanted something that sparked excitement – and it was really hard to find!

Wedding Paper Divas was my go-to for all of my stationary needs for my wedding.  We did our save-the-date cards, placecards, thank you notes – my friends even used them for my bridal shower invitations!  In my opinion, they have the freshest designs out there and I have always been pleased with the quality of the product.

I recently visited their placecard section and I was blown away by their beautiful selection!  Check out their beautiful designs – at 50 cents a piece, these designs would be a beautiful addition to your table for any dinner party, bridal shower, birthday party or luncheon!

Birth Announcements – For Life’s Little Celebrations!

I’m a sucker for paper….no doubt about it.

But I firmly believe that there are many things in life worth celebrating (and announcing!)….and the addition to a family is definitely one of them!

Here are some of my favorite new birth announcements….many of them could be used for the color story/theme of a baby shower too.
