Pear Tree Greetings featured in…

It’s always exciting for our small team to be recognized in popular magazine articles for our Christmas cards. Our elves (aka 4-person design team) work really hard to bring you the latest trends in stationery design so you can personalize your card the way you envision it. We also work hard to push the limits on what is possible, so that your card will be the most unique card in every mailbox this December. Magazine editors have seen the hard work we put in and have shared our unique Christmas card ideas with their readers. Here are three of our holiday placements this year.

Christmas birth announcement idea
Is it a birth announcement? Or is it a Christmas card? It’s both, as this busy mother of three writes in the card’s greeting. “Life is busy, so consider this also an early Christmas card!” The family photos and new baby girl theme work beautifully with the pink and green striped border and linen-look background on our Stitched Stripes Baby Girl Announcements.

What to Write on Your Christmas Cards

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

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!)

Kids Birthday Party Ideas: Start Your Engines!

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!
