Real cards created by real people like you!
This Shining Bright Foil Christmas card is turning out to be a best seller, and for good reason. This bride-to-be chose it for its timeless design and personalized it with their engagement photos and gold foil greeting from the “future family” they will soon become.
Figuring out what to write on your Christmas cards every year can be difficult. The blank box with the blinking cursor grows larger and larger, in direct proportion to the pressure you’re feeling to make your message sincere, inspiring and funny all at the same time. Our advice to you? Just relax and write the way you talk to your friends. Here are five examples of Christmas letters that are long and newsy, but not obnoxious. Maybe you can use one of these approaches to get started on your own Christmas letter.
1. Kids growing up
The Williams family is chalking up 2014 as yet another memorable one for the books! Let’s start with little Miss Paige. With two older brothers, not much gets past her. She started dance class this pas fall and loves the dresses and social interaction. Onto two of the “men” of our family, Joseph is our wild child and has proven this with his dare devil ways. An off-road bike tour of the neighborhood brought him home with a broken arm this summer. Eli is still calm, cool and collected. A second-grader, he excels in math and is growing his love for basketball this winter. He’s definitely the ring leader around the house, making sure his busy brother and diva sister are staying in line with what Mom and Dad say. We were blessed with our 4th child, Andrew on April 23rd. We hope this holiday greeting finds all our family and friends doing well.
2. Family adventures/trips
After two months of traveling, we are now able to correspond and connect with loved ones to share our wonderful experiences. We revisited France during September and October, traveling the Ligurian Coast. Our first stop was Alassio, a charming town with picturesque beaches. From there we traveled by train to Genoa. On our past trips, we never took the time to visit this brilliant city, so it was a real gem as we discovered stunning architecture. One of the largest cities in Europe, it brought about many historic excursions. Following the week stop in Genoa, we met with friends for a few days at a villa in the South of France. Great views with even better friends! We closed out the trip by spending a couple days in beautiful Paris. As we reflect on our travels, we are reminded of the many blessings among our family and throughout the world. We hope this letter finds you, a blessing to us, happy and healthy. Continue reading
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!)
At Pear Tree Greetings, we dare to stand out not only with our unique Christmas card formats (which we fondly call our Golden Pears), but also with the Christmas card wording ideas we use in each of our designs. We love to give you options for saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” and doing it with a fresh twist. Here are 10 new ways for you to say “Merry Christmas” on this year’s Christmas card.
1. String of Sequins Ornament Christmas Cards: Oh Joy
2. Shining Bright Foil Christmas Cards: Be Merry, Be Bright
3. Colorful Cheer Christmas Cards: Cheer
This year nothing was more fitting than a race car birthday party theme for our three year old son, Alex Archer! I was able to create the perfect invite and decorations for his party at Pear Tree, making for a memorable party, once again.
Here are all the printed pieces I used, and I will show you below, in more detail, how I used them at the party to create these fun kids birthday party ideas you can do, too!
I love how the Race Is On Kids’ Birthday Invitations turned out. The checkered flags and race car details in the design looked perfect with the photo of Alex, and I thought it was really fun to put his stats and the year’s recap on the back of the invite.
I ordered two sets of the Race Is On Table Décor and it was the perfect amount for all the decorating ideas I had in mind. I used checkerboard-patterned duct tape to hang a set of table décor on the door to greet our guests. I also punched holes in the table décor and strung them up for another decoration!

We love the choice of gold foil to accent the beautiful photos on this simple, two-sided Shining Bright Christmas card. This family was excited to introduce their new puppy, Pearl, to friends and family, and chose this card because it had “the perfect sparkle for a Christmas card.” But more than the card choice, we love what mom, Heather, says about the tradition of sending Christmas cards and the meaning they hold for her family.
Our new gifts collection is full of gift ideas everyone will love. Even better, these particular gift ideas are all $25 or less, and can be personalized with photos or digital artwork to give them a personal touch. Turn your favorite photos into gifts, just like that!

We found this mom, JoAnna, on Instagram when she tagged us in her post sharing that she was excited for her son’s upcoming 2nd birthday party. We loved the Li’l Farmer Twine Package Kids Birthday Invitation she had picked out and wanted to hear her story and see how the party turned out. I think you will agree with us when you see her fun and crafty kids birthday party ideas! We love it.
“As a crafty mommy and love for all things stationery + paper, this was the best invitation set I could ever imagine,” JoAnna shared.
“This was a last minute party planning for me and I searched and searched online and no one had exactly what I was looking for until I saw this farmer set. I jumped right on it for editing and got next business day shipping.” JoAnna personalized each of the three pieces in this invitation set and tied it with the twine to send as a nice package to the guests. (Twine is included with this unique three-piece invitation.)
JoAnna carried out the farm theme by also ordering our matching Li’l Farmer Table Decor Kids Birthday Party Decorations to use as food labels.
On the day of the party, Li’l Farmer Jaxon had to, of course, dress the part. JoAnna said she got the clothes at Nordstrom and the boots at ChildrenSalon.com. How handsome is he?!
