More Fourth of July Party Ideas

One of my favorite party blogs is Wow, the most beautiful and elaborate parties are showcased on her website. It is a great place to visit for some wonderful party planning ideas! She recently displayed some great 4th of July inspiration and these licorice wraps quickly caught my eye. What a fun new way to use your printable paper napkin rings! I may have to officially steal this idea for the girls' Ice Cream Parlor birthday. I admit too that Red Vines licorice is a guilty pleasure of mine! When I was in high school, my mom and I would take day long and even weekend shopping trips that somehow always ended up with some Red Vine of our many treats to sustain hours and hours of shopping. My dad has a serious love for licorice too so I guess it is just a bit nostalgic to me! Does anyone remember rope licorice? Oh me, I am blogging about licorice and I'm not even pregnant anymore!

Gift Ideas: Flat Notes and Enclosure Cards

Flat notes and enclosure cards make great personalized gifts! They are available as printable files for you to print at home for yourself or send them to Kinkos for high quality professional printing. When using a professional print shop, I recommend requesting 100lb. linen card stock. Linen is my favorite, especially with notecards. With a PDF file, you can print a few now and more as you need them. Think of those birthdays coming up as well as hostess gifts ! :) Here are just a few of many styles to choose from. Find more under "Sweet Peach Products" in the right column.

Cherry Fondant Cake by Rene Takes the Cake

I can't believe it, but the girls' 3rd birthday is a little over 2 months away. Time to start planning!! :) They are still not old enough to request a particular theme so I've been brainstorming special things they love right now. Getting ice cream from the "ice cream shoppe", as they say, is one very special event these days so an ice cream parlor just may be the dream setting to them! I came across this adorable cake designed by Rene Takes the Cake and my mind started filling with ideas of ice cream, cherries, red and aqua! Thought I would share my fun inspiration...

One of my dear friends is marrying the man of her dreams this summer and I am honored to help host one of her bridal showers.

I have an entire collection that I am still working on, but will have lots of pictures to share after her shower later this summer. This invitation is customized with background color of your choice along with the hair color of the bride.

Update from The Sweet Peach Paperie

Hellooooo sweet customers!! It has been so long! Wow, I have missed blogging over the last 2 months! Since I last posted, my life has been greatly blessed once more! I am so proud to introduce our newest love "Eliza"! Elizabeth Brooks Allen joined our family on April 28th at 11:42 a.m. weighing 7 lbs. and 3 ounces. She is the sweetest baby and absolutely perfect! Below is her picture at 1 day old and I have more precious pictures from her newborn photoshoot to share soon. Can you tell I'm a proud momma? I'm just a bit smitten by all three of my girls! :)

I also wanted to give you some updates for The Sweet Peach Paperie. I originally thought I would start taking printed orders again in June. Now that June 1st is here, I am realizing my plans may change just a bit. I have been selling digial files for the last two months and am finding this to be a new avenue that may fit my life very well right now. Before I went on maternity leave, business has gotten extremely busy! I love every minute of it, but life with a newborn simply will not allow me to go back to that full of a schedule with print shop and weekly post office runs. Digital sales will allow me to continue business with what I so enjoy as well as meet the needs for all your Sweet Peach parties!

With that, I'm excited to be back! I have sooo many fun parties, new collections and great ideas that have been stacking up while I've been on maternity leave. I also have some great giveaways coming soon for Facebook fans so be sure you are a part of the crew!
