Chalkboard Invitations, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Party & Home Decor, and  More

It doesn't take more than a minute or two perusing Pinterest to know that vintage is in.  Brides have especially been loving our vintage tin tile  outdoor wedding photography backdrops and magnetic seating charts & escort card boards.  Today we want to make sure every one is aware of the newest trend in vintage — chalkboard everything.  At first we thought it it was our personal obsession after discovering a ceiling tile chalkboard  but after my daughter called and said she painted a chalkboard wall and created 2 chalkboard side tables in her summer apartment rental, I knew I was on to something.  Izzy is always a beat or two ahead of burgeoning trends.  And then today, I opened my email and there waiting for me was a note from Tiny Prints with the subject  “Chalk it up to Birthdays”” featuring their latest fashion forward invitations.

So today we have chosen to  showcase this chic new chalkboard trend in invitations and suggest coordinating your place cards / escort cards, table numbers, party & home decor.  Once we began our quest, we were amazed at how much chalkboard “stuff” is readily available online. Plus, as Izzy could tell you, you can easily transform just about anything into a chalkboard decor yourself using a can of chalkboard paint or chalkboard peel & stick papers.

Just a note of caution – if you DIY, make sure you check the color on the container.  Turns out chalkboard paint comes in both black and green.  I wanted black but mistakenly bought green paint.  I ended up trying the green, not liking it, and repainting my ceiling tile chalkboards with the black  chalkboard spray paint.

Wedding Planning: Chic, Stylish Save the Dates

Can you believe it? Wedding season is fast approaching and it is time to send out your save the date cards!

Party Idea Pros recommends that if you are planning a destination wedding or intend to invite out of town guests, try to send out your wedding save the dates at least 4-6 months in advance.  This will give your guests time to take advantage of the best possible rates as they make their travel arrangements.

Even if most of your guests live locally, save the dates really do help to ensure your guests do not make other plans for your special day.  Although I am writing this in February, much of June is already spoken for and we have already booked travel for a few weekends in July and August.  Would we change our plans and cancel our tickets if invited to a wedding?  Absolutely —  however, not everyone would be willing to eat the cancellation fees and reschedule their vacations, especially if the whole situation could have been avoided if the bride and groom had simply sent out a save the date.

Now let's assume the dates are set, the plans are being made, and you recognize it is important to let people know when the big day is.   Where should you begin searching for chic and stylish save the date cards and wedding invitations?  Wedding Paper Divas absolutely leads the way with Save the Date cards, calendars, and magnets. And this year, just in time, they have added tons of awesome new features and Save the Date items like these unique and stylish Circle Cards and Monogrammed designs (love ‘em!).

Calendars are fun and useful to potential guests. You can check all of Wedding Paper Divas’ calendars here. Some of my other favorites are what they call the “Romantic Tab : Smoke” Save The Date Postcard and the “Haute Heraldry : Black” Save the Date Card. But really they just have so many to choose from and everyone’s tastes are different, so check them all out.

What makes Wedding Paper Divas different? Before each each order is shipped it is hand reviewed (by a real live human! I should know – I messed up my own order and a kind and patient customer service representative walked me through all the needed changes) for any issues, so you’re guaranteed to receive high-quality cards.  Shop their Save the Date cards today. These cards are sure to impress family and friends.  If you’re a planner and early shopper, take advantage of Wedding Paper Divas' 20% off your entire order (25% off orders of $149 or more) when you purchase Save The Date cards through 2/16/12. Just use PROMO CODE: WEDSAVE25.

 …

Finally, we must admit, even for us,  professional wedding planners, choosing a stationery style can get a bit overwhelming so it sometimes helps to see what others consider to be the most chic, the most stylish  save the date designs.  A you can see, todays brides are choosing photo cards that capture the story of the couple's romantic journey.  This year's most popular color palettes are grays and golds and other neutrals.  Choose photos that are simple and/or stylized — photos that tell a story, photos with what Tyra Banks would call “smizing” eyes!

Green Lantern Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil's might,

Beware my power… Green Lantern's light!

The Green Lantern is the shared primary alias of several superhero characters (including Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, and Jade) appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring and power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and can be very dangerous. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.  (Thank you Wikipedia!)

Plot summary: A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.
