Christmas Card Shopping Myth #5: Address Labels Are For Wimps

Address labels for wimps? We beg to disagree. Address labels are the best things to happen to addressing Christmas cards since the invention of the printing press (the one that prints sticky back address labels, anyway). Here at Pear Tree we wouldn’t order cards without them and there are several good reasons why.
Addressing Christmas Cards

These handy little labels not only save time addressing Christmas cards, they give your envelopes a ton of personality to help your greetings stand out in the mail. While we’re at it, we might as well dispel the myth that return address labels have to go on the front upper left corner of your envelope. They look even better on the back, which is where your friends and family will get a surprise when they flip to open your card.

90th birthday party ideas

Birthday party ideasMy Grandma Rose is so special to my family and me. Turning 90 years old is quite the milestone, and we wanted to make her birthday party very special and memorable—not only for her, but for the guests!

All of our birthday party ideas started with the invite. I was unsure which card I wanted to use and was tossing around several ideas, including Postal Delivery Invitation Postcard, or repurposing our Lasting Introduction birth announcement or Circles of Celebration trifold party invitations, the two-sided tri-fold was perfect for a 90th birthday party invitation! I was able to share a timeline, showcasing the highlights of Grandma’s 90 years of happiness! To make these invites stick out in the mailbox, I used Tying the Knot Address Labels in hot pink to seal it shut.

I received a lot of compliments about the invite. One of Grandma’s friends was so excited that she said she had been showing everybody and was going to take it to coffee and show all of her friends! She said it was the most unique invite she had ever received.

Once the invite was ordered, I got to work on planning the party and making the decorations. I wanted the guests to leave with a remembrance of Grandma Rose, so I made little photo magnets using the same photos I used on the invite. Then I packaged them using clear bags and stapling Cupcake Love Kids Stationery and Looking Linear Confetti to the bags. It was a fun token for the guests to take home and put on their fridge in honor of Grandma Rose.

Back to school supplies for mom to enjoy #stationery #peartreegreetings
Sometime around mid-August, as the summer winds down, it’s like someone throws a switch and suddenly we feel a nostalgic longing for new shoes, a new sweater, and a new box of crayons. Whether you’re eight or thirty-eight, the start of the school year signifies a new beginning, a time to get organized and get down to business.

Your new baby has brought so much joy into your life—and so many gifts! You know you really should get started on those thank you notes, if you can just find the time between feedings! But somehow the box of thank you notes you bought before she was born don’t seem to convey her personality at all.
