Wedding Thank You Ideas

Sending wedding thank you cards is a must as you and your new spouse enter wedded (eh-hem, responsible) life. Your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors took time out of their lives to join in your special day, so taking the time to thank them is necessary. But don’t think that every thank you card has to be the same. There can be ways to spruce it up a bit to share memories and moments with your guests. Here are 3 wedding thank you ideas to make your card stand out when guests are opening them.

1. Include printed photos of the guests. This idea has been a hit with friends and family! All you have to do is simply print off photos (that your photographer will give you) of your guests enjoying their time at your wedding. Include one or two pictures in your thank you card envelope and you’re done. It’s an added surprise, plus it brings back fun memories from the day. (Use idea #1 from this post to be sure you get a photo of every guest!)

  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

Monogram Note Cards -- Chic Seal
I was raised to always send thank you notes. As soon as I could write, my mom made me write my own thank you letters to grandparents after birthdays and Christmas. My grandmother would even respond to my thank you letters to say thank you for my thank you. Until recently, I thought that tradition had died with her generation.

Homemade Christmas gift ideas from Our Holly Days

Our Holly Days is another one of our beloved Pearistas. Holly decided to create a DIY Elf-ing Treat using Pear Tree’s Christmas notelettes. We love homemade Christmas gift ideas and we wanted to share this one with our readers. Enjoy!

J & I have the sweetest neighbors. They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days. Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.

I think elf-ing your neighbors is such a sweet idea & it’s a tradition that J & I decided to start with the kids this year. I had some extra apple butter from the batch I made, so we decided to use it for the neighbors’ elf treat. And Pear Tree’s sweet new Christmas Notelettes & Christmas gift tags/personalized stickers are perfect for elf-ing!

Christmas Notelette Idea

Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? Anything that is miniature is automatically 10x cuter. Besides, homemade apple butter. I went ahead & brushed off both my mom win & awesome neighbor shoulders for this one.

Christmas notelette idea from See Vanessa Craft

See Vanessa Craft is one of our wonderful Pearistas. We absolutely adored her homemade Christmas gift ideas, (recipe) chocolate chip banana nut bread, and wanted to share her Christmas notelette idea with our readers. Enjoy!

I’m honored to be picked to be part of the 2013 Pear Tree Greetings blogging team. As a Pearista, I’ll not only be showing off Pear Tree’s fabulous products but also fun ways to use them (and maybe even a couple giveaways for my readers). Remember the no cook strawberry shortcake gift and mustache Valentine’s Day oreo pops I did for them this past year? I’m a huge fan of Pear Tree, especially their Christmas Cards, and I’m looking forward to sharing my fun new blogging gig with you. Here’s one of my all time favorite banana bread recipes (along with some fun ways to gift it). I don’t make it too often anymore because Logan hates chocolate. You couldn’t bribe the kid to eat it. He’s totally missing out! This is a great gift to give to the neighbors for the holidays.
