Friday Favorites: Printed Things

This week’s round up includes save the date, invitation and menu card ideas and resources. Enjoy!

From the top left, spiraling clockwise, ending with flirty pink in the middle.

Not an invitation, per se, but the fonts, styling, layout, colors… aggggggg, I love this poster.  Someone do this please!!

Perfect for a whimsical bridal shower – this Alice in Wonderland invitation has a vintage feel to it. It’s from Etsy and I like the colors on my pin better than what is featured in the shop.  Nice to know it is customizable, however.

This Save The Date for a Bronx Wedding.  I like the “please” and location fonts.  This is by Wedding Paper Divas – affordable, trustworthy and surprisingly chic.

Alluding to your wedding theme via your paper invites is nice.  This rustic invite features a mason jar, but is kept fresh with the color choice (greige) and the pen style drawing. I would only change the secondary font to sans serif, but that’s just me.

Lovely brown paper bag menu cards. See the entire wedding write up here on Blue Farm Wedding’s blog.

Techy/Geeky meets Metro/Slick – this flowchart save-the-date will be put on the fridge in minutes flat. It’s another treat from

This Rose Garden Menu Card by  Surprisingly affordable… however the Triple Thick paper makes it a little spendy, but why not, your guests will appreciate it.

YAAAS! Love this flirty pink invite – would work extremely well for a shower, too. Guess who…

Happy Planning!


Friday Favorites: Groomsmen Gifts

(aka great Christmas gifts for the boys in your life, come to think of it…)

Clockwise from top left…

Meister watches – I am a huge fan, as is my husband.  This was his gift to his boys on our wedding day.

Glenfiddich’s new Bourbon Barrel Reserve 14 year scotch whiskey – with hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and pear, this is perfect for whiskey and scotch drinkers – and everyone in between!

It seems like men are also candle lovers – just maybe not the vanilla honeysuckle scented variety.  These handsome glassy babies are manly yet elegant – much better then that Glade candle he has on his night stand.  Also works as a great change collector… This aptly named “Master of the Universe” version is bound to crack a smile.

Seattle’s own Anchorhead Coffee Co will cover all your coffee needs – whole beans, cold brew, read to drink options. Headed up by two Art Institute graduates (that are both still under 30, BTW) – this edgy take on quality coffee beats Starbucks gift cards any day.

I’ve brought up wooden coin banks before (they just look SO good, and are practical!). But here is another one I have found.

I know, it’s another watch, but I ADORE giving watches as gifts – this is Meister’s little brother line, “Prodigy.” I almost want one for myself!

Calling all gym rats! This smart jump rope by Tangram Factory combines geeky tech (like an automatic jump counter displayed through an LED light on the ground in front of you), and sophisticated cool (smooth silver handles). Geeky + Sophisticated + Gym-my = Happy Man.

Sipping Rum – like Kraken.


Trakdot’s luggage tracker – for the jet-setting men in your group.  Better than a piece of holiday ribbon tied on your suitcase, this gadget tracks your luggage and communicates through email or text as to its location.

Happy Shopping!
