Pear Tree Greetings was featured on national television show, Bethenny!!

We are excited to announce that we were featured on the FOX television show, Bethenny, Monday, April 21. In this feature, we were able to help make the dream of a “mompreneur” come alive with a donation of 30,000 napkins to help her business. Watch the video below to see her story and watch her reaction!

Stacey’s business, Love-N-Notes, began with a desire to brighten her daughter’s day at school. Her daughter had a learning disability, and Stacey wanted to connect with and encourage her during the day, so she began including napkins with hand drawn messages in her lunchbox. Once she saw the positive influence the napkins were having on her daughter, Stacey decided to start a business.

Even if you’re just snapping candids with your cell, you can get great shots that you can later use for festive holiday greeting cards, wall photos, or exciting announcements.

Here are a few photography tips to make sure you get the best photos of your next family event:

  • Consider a tripod: Yes, there are tripods for your iPhone, and yes, they’re actually pretty affordable. Setting up a small, flexible table-top tripod on the picnic table or another commonly-used surface makes it easy to capture a steady photo at a natural angle. Here are some more smartphone gadgets to consider.
  • Play with poses: Getting your loved ones to demonstrate genuine emotion makes for truly rewarding photos. Prompt your partygoers with an inside joke, or ask one of them to tell another one a secret. Capturing an honest-to-goodness giggle is just about as good as it gets!Photography Tips: 7 iPhoneography Tips for Family Gatherings #photoideas #phonephotos #peartreegreetings #creativelive Continue reading

Sending Love Any Time of the Year

While Valentine’s Day may be the usual day to send a love note, I had a different idea this year. I decided to send some love to my family and closest friends by tucking photo strips of my son and his ever-changing faces and poses into a note (I chose Long Distance Love from Pear Tree Greetings). My family and friends enjoyed the randomness of receiving a love note in April, so I wanted to share the idea with you. Below are the steps I did to send some love!
