With so many decisions to be made during the course of planning a wedding too often the welcome bag is left to the last minute and then the whole process can get a bit overwhelming. Chances are your first stop is Pinterest – we know ours is. Once there, we inevitably fall victim to what we like to call Pinterest envy. OMG everything is stunning and every little detail is addressed in a chic & stylish way. But then we start pricing out all those details and after all is said and done some of those “little bags” filled can cost upwards of $50.00 each. We don't know about you, but the thought of spending $5000 on 100 welcome bags seems insane. Plus, we are not huge fans of plastering the bride and grooms face on every water bottle and mint tin but rather prefer to choose one signature item and make that item special – think welcome to our wedding weekend Minibooks™ cards!
Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY.

If you have followed us for any length of time you probably already know of our #PiPhiLove and our absolute obsession with the perfect Pi Beta Phi gift, the iconic Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Gold Arrow Necklace or Silver Arrow Necklace. This little necklace embodies the essence of a Pi Beta Phi sorority woman: strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet subtle, delicate, and feminine.
With recruitment season in full swing, we realized that soon big sisters across the country will be embarking on the annual quest to find the best little sister gifts available. Yes, we still love the arrow necklace but realize a single gift probably won't suffice so we have assembled a collection of the best Pi Phi gifts available at a reasonable price point yet not so junky they will get tossed in the trash at the end of the school year. You can admit it, half of those Pi Phi stickers and pins and painted wooden arrows never make it to next year's dorm room. However, we guarantee you a dainty and classic arrow bangle bracelets will be worn almost everyday and at just $3.99 (for 2 days only!) falls within most little sister gift budgets.We were also please to discover a great selection of arrow journals and believe it is well worth spending $10.95 (minus Zazzle's daily deal discount) for a pink glitter arrow journal to help your little sister memorialize the amazing year ahead. And just about any sister could use a 5-pack of arrow socks for only $6.99, a tervis pi beta phi tumbler, or a new Pi Phi iPhone case.
We happened across this adorable A Little Ladybug Baby Shower Invitation and was inspired to create an entire inspiration board around it. What we really liked was that we envisioned the baby shower in soft hues of pinks, yellows and grays with pops of red and black. We loved that we could mix and match the best of the best party supplies and create this fabulous look which is just the right mix of baby and sophisticated.
And after we put this all together we couldn't help but search for corresponding ladybug baby shower gifts. 🙂 These are just too cute!

Some of my favorite things came to be on April 2nd. It is the day the first egg roll took place on the White house lawn (1877). It is the day the first motion picture theater opened in LA (1902). It is the day of birth of one of my closest and most admired friend, Cynthia, of music legend Marvin Gaye, of our favorite Law & Order SVU alum, Chrisopher Meloni, and of our go-to company for the freshest, most fabulous paper products (including stationery, invitations, and announcements for any and all occasions), wall art and party décor – Minted!
Today, April 2nd, is Minted's 5th Birthday and they want everyone to celebrate with a week-long promotion of 15% off the entire site! You definitely don't want to miss out on the celebration! The promotion starts today and ends midnight PST on Monday April 8th.
