Seasons Greetings! The holidays are amongst us & it’s my favorite mail season of the year, because… HOLIDAY CARDS! I’m a holiday card lover and always have been. I love receiving cards and seeing everyone’s beautiful family photos. It’s so fun to see all the changes that have happened in the year, especially since most of our friends are in the season of life that involves kids.
I especially love sending out my cards every year and usually start planning our family holiday card around September- yes I’m that mom. With everyone’s busy schedules, it’s so fun to “connect”, especially during the holidays, no matter how far our friends or family are!
This year we ordered our cards from The Paper Place in Old Town Scottsdale and we absolutely LOVE them! They are crisp and festive and the quality is truly amazing. Each card is handmade and the design team at The Paper Place can truly create anything your heart desires. We took our photos at Butterfly Wonderland so we went with a red butterfly theme on the cards that contrasted with all the beautiful greenery in our photos. FYI: We chose to shoot our pics at Butterfly Wonderland because we thought it would provide a natural atmosphere to capture authentic smiles from JZ- which it DID!
When it came to designing the cards, I truly left the creative process to The Paper Place staff, and they were excellent at checking in and making a couple tiny changes as the design process evolved. There were so many beautiful options to choose from- I could have spent hours flipping through scrapbooks of past cards, wedding invitations, and announcements they have created.
In addition to custom cards, the shop offers so many cute gift ideas. I ended up picking up a personal neck fan that happened to be on Oprah’s must have list (random right?!) for my mom, some witty napkins for my mother in law, and a new phone case and the most luxurious wrapping paper for myself! So if you are looking for a beautiful option for holiday cards or just need a special gift for the person that is hard to shop for- The Paper Place is where it’s at!
Here’s to hoping you send + receive some happy mail this holiday season! Cheers friends, XO!
