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

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!
My current favorites include (from the top, left to right):

As the school year quickly comes to an end, celebrate and thank the teachers that have made an impact in your child’s life this year.
Spoil your child’s teacher with a fun, out-of-the-ordinary gift…..a monogrammed clipboard, personalized luggage tags, a festive paperweight to dress up their desk, or a cute bag to tote her notes back and forth.
