The Complete Package

An incredibly important aspect of planning any event are the details.  They are the elements of a party that reflect your personal style.  So when it comes to choosing these details, I love to have them all coordinate.  Whether it's a monogram, motif or color scheme, it is so nice when you see everything carried out through all the paper elements of your party.

BT Elements makes it so easy.  They offer creative save the dates, invitations, matching menus, programs, place cards, table cards & gorgeous packaging for favors in a variety of color combinations.

Thank You to Bonnie Marcus

Before we begin with our weekly posts, I must take a moment to say a public thank you to Bonnie Marcus of Bonnie Marcus Collection ~ "where fashion meets paper." Bonnie is the designer of our fabulous Posh Party Gal.

The reason I asked Bonnie to commission my Gal is because she has always been an inspiration to me. A woman with an idea and ambition eagerly brought her idea to life. Bonnie launched her amazing line of stationery and invitations right from her dining room table. Her designs are the epitome of chic and are displayed on everything from invitations to notepads, stationery, tote bags and more.

You can read about Bonnie and shop online by going to

Not only have they gone green with all of their papers, a percentage of your sale goes directly to Breast Cancer Research!

Thank you so much Bonnie!!
