Email schmemail – what could be better than a tiny love note?

Write one to your soon-to-be or consider giving these as unique wedding invitations, favors or thank you cards to guests!  I mean really, who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling treasures?

Here’s how it works:  You write a letter and it is transcribed onto tiny stationary with a magical transcription device.  The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a wax seal.  It is put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.”Leafcutter Designs

Cool thing about these invitations aside from their stylish look?  When you purchase them, a portion of the proceeds from your sale are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.  The  Bonnie Marcus collections are also printed on recycled paper and include not only invitations for the holiday, but weddings and other events too! 

Bonnie Marcus doesn’t stop with paper…you can also find great gift ideas for that grab bag or even your bridesmaids, such as flip flops, tote bags, note pads and more.  Talk about a one-stop-shop this season…can it get any easier?  To find these items and more, visit Bonnie’s Style Press.  Have a happy, haute holiday!

Don’t Leaf Me Behind…

with one comment

…Send Me With Love!

I remember Fall when I was little – my mom and I would collect any pretty leaves we’d find, then we’d press them between the pages of this really big Bible we had.  After a few days, we’d take them out.  My mom would put the leaves between two pieces of parchment paper (I think that’s what it was?) and iron the paper together so we could happily preserve the leaves we found and loved.

Sometimes the leaves would decorate the fridge, other times they would get lost.  But what if we had found a way to really show off those gorgeous fall leaves?  Such as sending in the mail in something like this:

Pocket Gift Cards From Katie Brown – set of 12:

“Create custom cards by slipping pressed flowers into the cellophane window. Matching envelopes included. Set includes brown, green and ivory paper. 4.5″ x 6.25”.

If you have similar childhood memories of leaf collecting, why not order this notecard set as a simple gift for mom on your wedding day (or any day)?   It’s a great way to remind her that you’ll always be her little girl as you bring back a little bit of sweet nostalgia.

Also, don’t forget to read about the Fun & Fabulous Giveaway that Kim Vallee is hosting, where you have a chance of winning the wonderful new book, “Katie Brown Celebrates“!  Simple and Spectacular Parties All Year Round, Katie will inspire you to host a party every month of the year. 

You have until October 22, 2008 23:59 (11:59 PM) EST to enter.  Good luck!

…Happy Day!

I am so happy today. For so many reasons. One of them is because I have such super sweet readers! So to all of my readers out there, thank you – have a fabulous day!

6 Pack of Cards by: “Avantgarage” over at Etsy:

If you’re a bride with a sense of humor, how fun would these cards be to give to your bridal party? Give them as notes to let them know how much you appreciate them standing up, or as gifts
