Housewarming Party: Home Sweet Home

housewarming party home sweet home

My husband and I are moving into our very first home next week….so I have moving, decorating, and housewarming parties on the brain lately! A housewarming party is a great way not only to show off your new home, but also a chance to gather your friends and get decorating ideas!

I have found some fabulous new home stationery out there that I just had to share with you……

Houswarming Invite 1

I love the simplicity and warmth of this invitation from Minted….it would be perfect for a Fall gathering!

Houswarming Invite 2

This lawnmower announcement from Minted would be so cute for a family moving into the suburbs, right?!

“We’ve planted new roots” – a charming, yet playful announcement from Tiny Prints.

This is the announement I chose for us from Tiny Prints….I love how it pictures the perfect little neighborhood.

Simple and sophisticated, this announcement from Wedding Paper Divas would be perfect for a house or apartment!

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!
