Beach Wedding InvitationsWeddings are a very important ceremony in any person's life. It is also considered the turning point of life. People have different ways and styles to celebrate this occasion. One of the famous trends happening among young people are beach weddings. People nowadays prefer to go abroad along with family and friends instead of spending a lot of money on a traditional wedding. They choose to celebrate their wedding on a beutiful tropical beach instead. Wedding invitations are part of any wedding planning.  Beach weddings are full of charm and beauty so invitations should be as well.

The card design should be matched to wedding theme. It can include palm trees, sandy beaches, sea shells and crystals of blue waters. Beach weddings are more than just a normal weddings. This wedding also involves leisurly evenings, dancing in the sand, tropical drinks and maybe even a few sandcastles. So you have to take more care about the arrangements. Many online companies offer special services for beach invitation weddings.

ImpressInPrint.com has a huge selection of tropical beach invitations. Selecting an invite depends on the style of the wedding; whether it is casual or formal one. You can select a typeface, font color, and style of wedding invitation cards. Many of the beach wedding invitation cards also include pictures of the sun setting on the horizon of a beautiful, blue ocean, with a little bit of white, sandy beach on the bottom. You can also add a picture of you and your partner together having a long passionate walk on a beach holding hands under a breathtaking sunset. You can also choose to add poem or a quote that your guests can specifically relate you to it.

Another option is to decorate your wedding invites with glitters and ribbons. The Wedding invitation cards should convey the same casual feel as your wedding ceremony. The paper, color and photos should be according to your party's theme.

Last Minute Fall & Halloween Invites

clock September 23, 2011 10:45 by author meghan

Last minute Fall and Halloween invitations are on sale at 10% off! You've got just enough time to send out your invites for your killer Halloween party or to plan ahead for Thanksgiving. Ready to get into party mode? Me too! I'm still cracking away at my Halloween costume for this year. What are you going to be? Tweet me and let me know!

Having a Halloween party without costumes is impossible. If you are hosting a Halloween party then you are expecting at least some of your guests to show up in costume, and as the host they are expecting you to take the lead. Help your guests out by giving them a theme to work with, or some costume ideas. You can go retro, futuristic, movie themed, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

Ghost CoupleThe most important part of a costume party is immersion in the theme, especially for adult parties. If your guests feel like they are stepping into a little world of Halloween, the costumes they come in will feel fun instead of forced. The more elaborate the costume the better, so be sure that you have yourself dressed up without taking short cuts. That does not mean that you need to spend a fortune on your costume. Chances are you or someone in your household has enough make-up to avoid spending excess on overpriced Halloween face paint kits. You can also create brilliant colored creams by crushing up eye shadow and mixing it with a little lotion or petroleum jelly (like Vaseline). Or, mix a little with eye shadow into some lip gloss or balm if you plan on using it on your lips.

Don't be afraid to make alterations to old clothes to get a desired effect. Cutting up an old t-shirt to create a bandana, armband, or waist wrap. The more layers and details you can add, the better your costume will appear. Halloween costumes are all about fun and creativity, not the amount of money you spend!

Halloween Candy Buffet InvitationAnother thing that I am an absolute sucker for is gingerbread houses. Don't laugh—I would make one for every holiday if I could! One of the major reasons that kids love Halloween so much is the candy loot they get from trick-or-treating. As they are jumping in sugar-overloaded joy, you are probably cringing on the after effects of eating so much sugar—everything from the mood swings to the tooth aches. The real question is, how can you put that candy to good, fun use without being eaten and have the kids agree willingly? You already know where I'm going with this!

Encourage your kids to keep a few pieces of their favorites, and use the rest to make haunted candy houses, ghoul statuettes, or their very own nightmare creations! Who says that gingerbread houses are restricted to Christmas? If Jack Skellington can take over Christmas Town, then your kids can too. You can even host a Halloween party where you provide some well-selected candies for just the occasions. Be sure to have a variety of colors, a bit of frosting or marshmallow cream for glue, and some interesting sizes. The more candy involved, the more elaborate the result!

Christmas is a very sneaky holiday. You may think that Halloween, with all of it's sinister splendor, would hold this title—but you would be wrong. Fall rolls around and tricks us with two major holidays and bright colors. Then, before you know it, BAM! Christmas is knocking on your doorstep and threatening to end the year in a rush.

This year, I'm going to grab Christmas by the ornaments and finish it off before it gets a chance to surprise me. How? With one of these four designs I have painstakingly handpicked from four of our awesome manufacturers. Two invitations and two photo cards!

This funky holiday invitation features a red and white striped vase, with red branches laden with retro-looking ornaments and lights. The large area for your text is in a festive lime green. Perfect for Christmas parties or holiday get-togethers!

Mistletoe Cameo Invitation

Are you hosting a holiday party? This green and red design is perfect for a wild party during the holiday season! It shows a colorful paisley design and a center stripe of leopard print.

Be Merry and Happy Photo Card

Damask Green and Grey Photo Card

A sophisticated design and creates a great holiday greeting! This Beautiful holiday card is designed with hues of black and greys and has a bright lime band that is for your personalization.

Halloween Is Here!

Fall is nearly here, which to me means one major thing: get ready for Halloween! Ever since I was a little kid, I enjoyed the antics of Halloween above all other holidays. I may joke about Halloween costume ideas all year long, but when Fall hits I get serious. Fortunately, I have accumulated enough decorations over the years that all I need to do is check out a few small additions at my local party store. The main things that need replenishing are the paper products: new invitations, new stationery, new napkins, and new plates.

Halloween Invitations

Halloween invitations are all themed for the spookiest day of the year. We have designs for your adult cocktail party, kids trick-or-treat party, and everything in between. You'll find the traditional orange and black as well as modern designs, formal designs, and fun themed creations. Match your invite to your costume, or pull decoration ideas from your invitation. Anything goes, so long as it's extra scary!

Halloween Stationery

Does your street hold a Halloween a block party? Are you having really huge Halloween bash? Or hosting a Haunted House? Halloween paper is a great way to get the word out there about your event. Pass them around at work, use them for your school classroom, print or color them, cut them to pieces. The options are as unlimited as your imagination. Here is your perfect and affordable, creative Halloween medium.

Halloween Plates & Napkins

You can't have a Halloween party without decorations. Paper plates and napkins are a great way to give your party extra color without having to clean up all the mess. Our Halloween plates and napkins are decorated with all kinds of Halloween themes. Pick one with a cute saying, or stick to a basic Halloween design.

When the party is over, don't forget that all of your paper products can be recycled!

How to Word Thanksgiving Invitations

clock August 19, 2011 09:20 by author meghan

Bookmark and Share

 

When selecting your wording for your Thanksgiving invitations, there are a few things you will need to include. Because Thanksgiving is on a set day, it is more important to focus on the nature of your event than when it will occur. Here is a quick summary of things you may want to include. Your invitation should cater to your specific needs, but this guide will give you an idea of what not to leave out!

  • Timing: Guests need to know when to arrive and when to expect to eat. Because Thanksgiving is traditionally a huge feast, guests will plan the rest of their food intake for that day according to when they will be eating this meal.
  • Nature of the Event: It may seem obvious that you are getting together for Thanksgiving, but it is not obvious what you have planned for your event. Thanksgiving Day could include games, activities, and socializing all day long. It could mean attempting to fry, roast, or barbeque a turkey in the backyard. The attire and atmosphere could be relaxed and casual or formal for a sit-down dinner. Be sure your guests are informed on how they should show up, and what to expect for the day.
  • Tone: Different families celebrate in different ways, so make sure the tone and font of your invitation matches the formality of your event.
  • Location: Be sure to include the address of your home or wherever you are hosting your event. Since Thanksgiving often extended family, they may not be as familiar with the location of your home as your immediate family. Avoid confusion of how to get to your home on the day of by including the exact address on your invitation.
  • RSVP: You will want your guests to RSVP to your invitation so you know how much food (and how big of a turkey) needs to be cooked. Formal invitations should have an RSVP card included. Casual and semi-formal invitations can include RSVP information on the invitation. Be sure to include an RSVP date, contact information, and whether you want all guests to reply or if you need regrets only.

It's All in the Details

As promised, we have been busy, busy bees at Impress In Print in preparing all kinds of new invitations for you to take a look at. Our Halloween section is bubbling with new designs; our baby section is impregnated with the new and precious; fall and Thanksgiving are a bounty of colors; and our new holiday invites are jingling just around the corner. There are so many new products to look at that picking a few favorites to share with you was a major, major task. Nevertheless, I have picked three of my tops for this week to spread the love!

 

Each card is full of tiny details that make the overall effect a bit magical. You can see the time spent, the incredibly artistic eye, and the genuine affection in each design. They are fun without being immature, modern without being overly simplistic, and have a strong concept of shape and form. The sample text coordinates so perfectly that you barely realize the extra design and style added from the text alone. If you're looking for top quality, these three would definitely fit the bill.

 

Fiesta Duo InvitationFiesta Duo Invitation

This card is a redesign of Inviting Co.'s extremely popular Fiesta Couple invitation. While the old design is still really adorable, this new design has already got me wanting to plan a fiesta. The couple is completely decked out from head to toe, and a colorful Mexican banner flutters in the background. I particularly love the detail on her shoes! Really, it's the little details of this card that make it such a fabulous design.

Autumn Squares Invitation Autumn Squares Invitation

This fall pick is definitely one of my favs because of the mix of designs. It combines modern squares and text design with more traditional image-based design. At one look, this invite appears both busy and simplistic. It also brings out fall without being too specific, which means it would work great for Thanksgiving, a fall party, a harvest festival, or even as a seasonal greeting.

Bird Tree Egg Boy Twins InvitationBird Tree Egg Boy Twins Invitation

I love this card from Noteworthy Collections because of its options. You can get it for a boy, girl, twin boys, twin girls, or boy and girl twins. What's more, you can use it as a shower invitation or as birth announcements. I am a huge fan of versatility. I like to see a card that can work perfectly for several different options, because it reminds me of how different yet similar all of our lives can be.

Have you used one of these invitations before? Let me know what you used it for and what you thought of it!

Many of these new designs make the perfect selection for autumn wedding invitations. The designs focus on leaves and swirls, like the brisk fall winds that mark the changing season.  Some of the invitations draw on the deep chocolates and burnt oranges that dominate the fall.  Others pull the light from the season, starting with soft ivories and mixing in hints of fall.  Other still are great for Fall Festivals or Thanksgiving Dinner with bright wheat and harvest colors. These have delightful designs showing your fall favorites, such as candied apples, pumkins and squash, bushels of wheat, and cornucopias.

4th of July Sale

Join us as we light up sparklers and shoot stars into the sky! We'll be celebrating the 4th of July in a big way with a big sale. From July 1st through 5th you can save up to 15% off invitations and stationery paper!

Celebrating our nation's 235 birthday is a big deal. We're planning a killer party, and thought we'd help you out with some awesome decoration and recipe ideas from the Impress In Print team. Can you say patriotism?

Decoration Ideas

When the Fourth of July comes around, you are faced with the task of decorating with a limited and loud color scheme: red, white and blue. Of course, there can be no alternative for Uncle Sam's birthday! Adding small, quick accents is an easy way to boost your patriotic theme. Try one of these ideas, and you will be surprised how easy and fabulous they are:

  • Jars with sand - Fill empty glass jars with white or light colored sand. Then, push in colorful stick decorations of any variety. These can be flags, stars, ribbon bursts, pinwheels, or anything patriotic attached to a stick. Then, mix in a few sparklers to be removed and lit after dark!
  • Napkin rings - Start with cloth or paper napkins in red, white, and blue. Then, visit your local craft store and pick up three rolls of patriotic ribbon. Tie each napkin with one of the three ribbons. Alternate and mix up the ribbon-napkin combinations for even more variety!
  • Red, white & blue votives - Use votive candles for all kinds of decorations. They can be a part of centerpieces, added to beverage tables, lined up on railings, or strung on a length of chain and hung. Anywhere you have a flat surface, add a few votives!
  • Sand Candles - You'll need red, white, and blue sand for these candles, as well as a few clear glasses. Begin by layering your glass with slim layers of sand. Alternate red and white sand, or try alternating red and blue with a stripe of white in between each. When the sand reaches about two inches from the rim, add a tea light candle. Continue layering carefully around the tea light until the sand is flush with the top of the tea light.
  • Wrapped cans - Start washing and saving cans in a variety of shapes and widths. Cut strips of wrapping paper (pick a festive option decorated with stars and stripes) to the same width as each can. Simply wrap and tape, leaving the top open and the bottom uncovered. Use these wrapped cans make great silverware holders, flower vases, or decorative contains for anything you like.
  • Star stickers - Add low-tack star stickers to anything you (or your kids) like! Try adding them to plastic cups, drink buckets, simple platters, and windows.

Patriotic Cupcakes

Everyone loves a good cupcake! There are so many options when it comes to making cupcakes for the Fourth of July. What's even better--all of them are totally easy! All you need is frosting, cupcake mix, and a few different toppers. If you plan on dying the frosting, be sure to have some red and blue food coloring handy, too.

  • Fruit Toppings - Frost all of your cupcakes with a white frosting (such as vanilla or butter cream) and bring color in with your different toppings. Top some with blueberries, some with raspberries or strawberries, and some with coconut. Tastes delicious on white or chocolate cupcakes! Go crazy and add some of each fruit all on one cupcake in circular patterns.
  • Frosting & Sprinkles - Start by dividing your frosting into three equal parts. Leave one third white, add red food coloring to one third, and add blue food coloring to the remaining third. Divide your cupcakes into three equal groups, and frost each group with one color or frosting. Finally, start adding your red, white and blue sprinkles to the cupcakes. The idea is to leave off the color of the frosting, so frost red cupcakes with white or blue sprinkles, frost blue cupcakes with white or red, and frost white cupcakes with red or blue. Try adding the sprinkles in stripes, mixed up, half and half, or alternating colors. Top each one with a toothpick flag!
  • Cupcake Wrappers - Not one to get into the decorating? Let cupcake wrappers do it for you! Mix as many different wrappers in white, blue, and red as you like. Take it one step further and tie a ribbon around each cupcake wrapper once your cupcakes have cooled (before frosting).
  • Patriotic Tower - In addition to decorating your cupcakes, decorate your cupcake tower! Add ribbons, flags, star cutouts, and anything else you can find with patriotic colors.
  • Candy Crazy - Top your cupcakes with any candies you like that come in red, white and blue. For small candies, push them into the frosting in a starburst shape to look like fireworks or arrange them into the shape of a star.
