I am a fan of a hand written note. I think everyone really enjoys getting an actual letter in the mail. Seeing the address lettered by hand and in a colorful envelope that you know coordinates with someones personal stationary. It’s exciting, you think… what do they have to say and what am I going to get to read about. Usually, you take the time to actually sit down for this read too; instead of shuffling the bills between walking the dog, fixing dinner and picking up miscellaneous items that have been strewn around the house. SO… today… I mark the importance of the stamp. It’s that additional touch that tells you the sender has considered every part of the mailing process to be pleasing to the recipient.
Good Morning all!
I have been busy this weekend working on a rush order for a wedding at the end of the month in Cabo (I’ll get pictures up tomorrow) and on my calendar for the office (I know I am a bit late, but I have January finished… pictures also coming soon). Since I was doing all this work, it got me thinking about what it would take to get more people to send letters versus e-mail for casual correspondence. Would it be a pen you anticipate and get giddy about writing with? Or a table the is beautiful and you want to use to feel like a lady writing love notes to her suitors? Maybe it’s the paper or the stamps.
Okay… so I am not talking about the green in your wallet but the green that graces your hands, the bridesmaids hands and all of the tables at your reception. Your flowers! What happens after all of the partying is finished and the bride and groom are on the way to wedded bliss? The flowers get thrown in the trash. Instead try to find a nursing home or seniors home that would like to bring in some flowers for their clients or you could share floral decor with another wedding at the same place on the same day, maybe for a baptism the next day or a birthday party of a neighbor. Think of something to put those fresh cut beauties to good use!
So, Thank you to Andrea at Circle Park Bridal for getting me set up in her store with my portfolio. This is what I displayed with it to match the fonts found around the shop. If you have not been by then you should definitely go check her out, great customer service and beautiful gowns of course!
We are back from our fun and quick trip away for Thanksgiving to be with the family.
This week, I will be featuring useful tools for planning your holiday gathering that I was seeking out for mine this Saturday. Before I start, I just wanted to remind everyone to drop their thank you notes in the mail to your hostess from the thanksgiving celebration. It’s work, acknowledge it!
Also, Christmas is 4 weeks away, so get to work on those Christmas cards. If you don’t have time, add the special touch and hire a calligrapher 🙂
