Art-Themed Kids Birthday Party Ideas

When I was looking for kids birthday party ideas for my 5 year old daughter, Kamryn, I knew I needed to have an art-themed birthday party! Kamryn will spend hours drawing and coloring, so it was easy to convince her of the party theme. I started by choosing the Colorful Paint Tray Kids Birthday Party Invitations from Pear Tree Greetings. The invitation fits perfectly with the theme. You can choose a different color for the front and back of the invitation, but I really liked the colors and chose to leave them as shown on the website.Use these kids birthday party ideas to inspire your next party! #kidsbirthday #peartreegreetings #party #art

I wanted a backdrop for the tablescape and decided that a chalkboard would work perfectly. I then used stencils to create words on the board and colored in with chalk.

3 Tips on What to Wear for Senior Pictures

Figuring out what to wear for senior pictures and getting ready for your photo session can be exciting for some high school seniors, and nerve-wracking for others. Here are a few tips on what to wear for senior pictures to make the day go a little smoother.  We would also love to hear from you on any tips you have to share!

1. Wear clothes that reflect your style. You may be tempted to go out and buy lots of new clothes and get a makeover, but now is not the time to create a whole new identity. Your friends know and love you for who you are, and your senior pictures should reflect your style and the person you are right now. Your senior yearbook will be treasured by everyone in your class for years to come. Gone are the days when guys had to wear suits, but if that’s your style then go for it. The key is to be comfortable with your look, and your photos will look great as a result.

5 tips on how to write a thank you card

For all those who’ve struggled with how to write a thank you card, here are a few tips that might make it a little easier. Whether your note is to follow up on a job interview or to thank a party hostess, knowing how to get started will make it that much easier to finish.
Use these tips to help you write a thank you card #peartreegreetings #stationery #thankyoucards Use these tips to help you write a thank you card #peartreegreetings #stationery #thankyoucards

  1. Write it right away. Preferably while the event is fresh in your mind. Nothing is harder than trying to remember details of a conversation, dinner party or event, weeks after it happened. If you write the thank you note quickly, it’ll be easier to come up with specific things to mention, perhaps a funny moment or a thoughtful touch you appreciated. Wedding thank you cards you can take a little longer, but most etiquette books suggest sending them within 2-3 months.
  2. Specific is better. Anybody can write a generic thank you note, and we’ve all gotten them: “Thanks for the blankety blank. I really appreciate it. Thanks again. Love, Julie.” Much better to mention exactly what you’re thanking this person for, and add something specific about why you liked it.  Continue reading
