Tuesday Team Pick {Carla}

This week we're celebrating birthdays! Not any of our own, sadly, but the excitement and festivity of birthdays and birthday parties is unbeatable (in our humble opinion), so we want to spend the week talking about celebrating people and the fact that they're here on this funny little planet with us.

This week's pick comes from Carla, one of our lovely Paper Stylists. She chose this funky fresh birthday invitation:


We asked her why she chose this invitation.

"This is one of my favorites, I just think it is a great concept, especially with all the food trucks that are around now.  I do have a customer that used it and she emailed me to say that she got amazing feedback on the invitations.  It was for a dentist office that was having a Open House and they had a couple of food trucks there, so it really tied in and set the tone for the event."

Of course, we love getting positive customer feedback, but we especially love hearing feedback that tells us that our designs are trendy and spot-on. This is a great invite, really colorful and fun, perfect for a birthday boy or girl of any age!

Tuesday Team Pick {Aimee}

This week's Tuesday Team Pick comes from Social Media Coordinator Aimee, in honor of our week celebrating fall weddings! (Because barns! Pumpkins! Hay bales! Fall leaves! Pumpkin spice! Right?)

This is one of our newest wedding designs, and it's Laura Ashley, so what's not to love? The colors are so bright and the design perfectly captures the essence of fall. This invitation would be perfect for any fall wedding, especially one outside, with all the changing leaves! There's also a variation of this card in which the band with the text in it is orange, which would be bright and cheery, whereas the green is a bit more subdued. 

We'd love to hear what you think!

Tuesday Team Pick {Terri}

This week's Tuesday Team Pick comes from our resident merchandising guru, Terri! Terri knows all our designs backward and forward, so if she's picking a card, it's probably a good choice!

Terri chose this design from Paper So Pretty, saying, "I love Halloween!!!  Every time I see this card it makes me laugh and makes me want to have a Halloween Party.  This invitation sets the tone for a fun Halloween Party Evening!!!"

This is one of our newer Halloween designs and we think it'll be popular this year!

Because, you know, what's better than spending Halloween fawning over a hunky bartender and enjoying some great cocktails? Right?

What do you think? Does this invite make you want to start decorating for Halloween already?

Beach Wedding Invitation Roundup

So, we don't know about you guys, but we're not ready for summer to end quite yet. Especially with dreams of Labor Day weekend still dancing in our heads.

So, to keep the summer vibes going, we've got a roundup of our most popular beach-y wedding invitations!

Invitations for beach weddings are the most common type of invites that we see at Paper Style. Our customers love them some sand and surf, you know?

Of all our beach-themed invitations, this is one of our most popular. The sandy background is the perfect beach element, and the aqua accents also come in a pretty coral color. It's simple and colorful, perfectly reminiscent of time at the beach!

Speaking of colorful, this is another popular choice at PS. We see this invitation used often for smaller, tropical destination weddings. It's got a little more fun than elegance, but beach weddings are supposed to be fun, right? Right. 

This third invitation comes in a few different colors, which makes it very popular. The two best choices for seaside weddings are this aqua color (the back of the invitation is a sandy color, with the faint outlines of starfish) for beach weddings and the navy blue variation for nautical weddings. Either way, it's simple and elegant, and a subtle tribute to the sea.

This last invite is not quite as popular, but is the most obvious of choices for a beach wedding, so what the heck, we'll throw it in here.

What do you think about these wedding invitations? Love 'em or hate 'em? Do you think wedding invitations should have a direct correlation to the theme of a wedding?

If you're feeling the summery beach wedding vibes, be sure to check out our Beach Weddings board on Pinterest for tons of inspiration!
