Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

The best Mother’s Day gifts are ones that are thoughtful and come from the heart. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just needs to be meaningful to Mom. One of our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas is creating a way to put her child’s artwork on display! We know that Mom (and Grandmom) cherish their children’s artwork, so take a few of those masterpiece designs from an overflowing drawer or tub and give them as a way for her to display on the walls or her desk or mantel.

As shown in these Three Hand Sketched Frames Wall Decals and True Colors Wall Decals designs, you simply upload the kids’ artwork as an image and pick the color of the frames or the circles to match the rest of the room. They are a great addition to a play room, kid’s bedroom, bathroom or hallway!

Graduation party ideas
Your teen’s graduation is an exciting milestone, not only for the grad but for the whole family, marking their move into a new stage in life. Make the most of the moment with a graduation party filled with personality to match your grad’s. We used our Gold Sequin-Look Trifold Graduation Announcement as the theme for this graduation party, which inspired all of these graduation party ideas from the invitations to the decorations to the menu. Most of the products you see came from Pear Tree GreetingsTarget or a local grocer.

We started with our graduation announcement for inspiration. We bought gold sequins, similar to the invite, and sprinkled them on the tables. (Sequins can be found at a craft store or online.) We also used the colors pink, gold and black to carry the theme throughout all the decorations.
