New to Party Box Design... Note Cards!

I love note cards, have been making them for quite some time... however, NEVER had them listed on the site?!? W.H.Y... no clue! No worries though, because you can now purchase them at Party Box Design!

I am slowly but surely creating note cards to match each and every invite we offer, so if you don't see one listed it will be there soon!!!

2 "NOTES" about our sweet lil cards, one they are priced suuuuper well and two they are FLAT!

Very Chic!

People I want to have cocktails with...

OR Coffee... because let's face it, finding sitters can be hard!!! LOL

Anyhoo... when I first started this lil venture of mine I had no idea how many fabulous ladies I would meet, well virtually meet-lol! People I would want to grab a cup of coffee with, or cocktails!

With regards to the "new" spin our life has taken, these ladies give me hope and make me smile. Not ONLY are their blogs/sites fantastic- but so are they!

Behind each blog, small biz, cupcakery, chocolate shop lies a person with a big dream and more often then not an even bigger heart!

Amy from 3 Cupcakes Blog Design is my virtual BFF! I can't even tell you how amazing she is and I sooo wish we could have coffee dates weekly or maybe twice a week! She is sweet and funny and beyond talented. Her designs are fresh, her concepts unique and her blog oh so fun! She is the real deal and I love that!

Thanks Amy... for all the times you have made me laugh out loud, pumped me up when I was down and to the day we meet for coffee!

Sue, from Sue's Gift Box & Sweet Shoppe is a lady I want to have cocktails with... well maybe coffee and then cocktails! LOL! Sue is a Jersey girl like myself, we have daughters close in age (hence coffee first) and she is very very sweet! PLUS super talented! Sue lives at the shore... lucky ducky right?!?

Sue is one of those ladies that I know I would just love to hang out with, a lady that followed her dream! Thanks for the inspiration Sue!

Next up... Jackie Fo! I even just like saying Jackie Fo... lol! Jackie is an amazing writer and oh so cute! We would for sure have cocktails, probably a lot and then laugh, laugh, laugh over pizza at 2 am! I just know it! Jackie is also a Jersey girl, so pizza and cocktails- a for sure!

Jackie is also really sweet and very talented, so be sure to check out her blog- a must read! A big thanks to Jackie for her sweet emails and support!
Ohhhh I would love to have a play date with Ebony and her girls! The Mama's would have a blast and so would the kiddos! Sparkling Events & Designs, LLC. is a go to spot for those planning weddings/events! Ebony is a tell it like it is kinda lady and also following her dream!

She is fun and witty and has for sure made me laugh!

Tammy, that sweeeeet soap maker! You know the lady behind Milk and Cookeez! She is def an inspiration to me and very very funny! Not to mention that her products are amazing and her soaps divine! She is another lady that followed her dream and has made it a reality, can't get more inspirational then that! If you have not shopped her shop, I ask why not?!?

Amy, Tammy and I def need to sit down at the cutest coffe shop and talk the talk!

There are so many more ladies I want to mention... but this blog post is getting CRAZY long and I need to get back to work-lol!!!

THANKS for the inspiration LADIES and most of all the support!

Guest Blogger: Christmas Classmate Favors

Hey there ya'll it's Amy from 3 Cupcakes Blog Design

Need a last minute gift for your kiddos classmates? I promise this is so QUICK & EASY!
I actually saw the idea on bnute productions facebook fan page and I just tweaked it for my son's classmates.

What you'll need:
Cardboard Rolls
Gift Wrap
Ribbon
Candies
Scissors & Tape

Step 1
Gather up your supplies...
Gather Supplies
Step 2
I just used cardboard gift wrap rolls that I had left over from wrapping presents and cut them 5 inches long. Tuck in the little goodies and wrap/tape with gift wrap. Your kids can help with this of course!

Gather up the ends and tie with coordinating ribbon.
Wrap and Tape
Step 3
Add a cute label
add a cute label
I just love cute little gingerbread men so I commissioned my favorite party designer to work up a sweet label for me. You might know her...she owns this fab shop called Party Box Design. She designed the label for me super fast and all I did was print off the design on a full sticker sheet. I used a punch to cut them out and added them to the favors.
finished favor
Okay...is that not totally easy??
This idea could also be adapted for adults for your Holiday parties.
Happy Holidays from 3 Cupcakes Blog Design!!

Guest Blogger: DIY Christmas Wreath

Hi My name is Melissa, from Truly Chic Inspirations! Such an honor being a guest blogger for Jess & Party Box Design!

Every year I make a Christmas wreath, this year I am loving golds & browns for the Holiday. Most of my supplies come from The Dollar Store & Michaels (gotta love a project that only costs a few dollars!)DIY Wreath With a glue gun I put the larger items on first. (I used plenty of hot glue at this part).With the decorative sprays, I inserted them at an angle- which made them stay in place. I hot glued the leaf from the spray on the wire for more support. You'll want to do the same for the start & end of your ribbon. Ta Da! A DIY wreath! A Fun project with low cost!

For more DIY wreath inspirations see my post A Christmas Wreath Project!Happy Holidays!
