Party Planning is Underway for Savannah's 3rd Birthday in July -- Invites Already Ordered from Paper Culture (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent along samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.

I can't believe that our oldest, Savannah, will be turning 3 yrs. old in July.  Just last month the school district called to tell me that Savannah was eligible to enroll in pre-school is she was potty trained, was talking in sentences, etc.  This phone call threw me off-guard, as it made me take at look at Savannah and realize she was not my little baby anymore. :-(  Yes, I knew she was growing up, adding to her vocabulary, etc., but enrolling her in pre-school -- this made it a reality.

But, before we send her off to pre-school in the fall, I have already begun planning for her 3rd birthday.  I don't know about you, but when I celebrated her 1st and 2nd birthdays, I kept them low-key, only inviting close family and friends, as I knew she wouldn't understand what was going on, or would remember these birthdays.  But, now that she is getting older, making friends and understanding holidays more, this year's birthday will include some of her friends. :-)

This year, I let Savannah help me choose her birthday party invitations, as a way to have her feel like she is involved in the birthday celebration.  When it came time to choose an invitation, I headed over to Paper Culture.   Paper Culture is one of the few true online Eco-friendly stationary stores.  Each and every design is exclusive and printed on 100% recycled paper.  From baby announcements, baby shower invites, personalized stationary, kids and adult birthday invitations to the their ever popular holiday greeting cards, you will not only be amazed at their environmental commitment, but will love each and every stationary product you order for them.  They even offer a "Mail & Message" option with each order, which allows Paper Culture customers to have their cards addressed and a personal message included, prior to mailing to those on your card list -- all for the cost of the postage -- nothing extra.

Savannah ended up picking out the "Monkey See Monkey Do" invitation shown below --

Monkey See Monkey Do Birthday Invitations - Light Brown 
"Monkey see, monkey do! This playful invitation is the perfect way to kick off birthday party fun. Designed by giggle, the store that makes it a whole lot easier to be a new parent, each card is printed on premium, recycled paper, for a fun and eco–friendly way to bring friends and family together."

And, this is how the birthday invitation arrived to our house last week, with our own personalization and photo added --

What makes me return back time and again to Paper Culture is how easy it is to order personalized invitations and holiday cards.  Whether I am choosing to add photos of the girls, or keeping it simple by merely adding in our names for greeting cards, the entire ordering process is quick and easy -- which, as a busy mom, I love!  And, I am not the only one who loves Paper Culture.  They have also been featured in popular publications like Real Simple, Parenting and Martha Stewart, as well as used by celebrities moms like Kerri Walsh, Jewel and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

When I showed Savannah the final product, she couldn't help but smile.  The monkey reminded her of "Curious George," and she loved seeing a photo of herself on the back.  Even though her birthday party is still a couple of months away, I can't wait to send out these party invitations to family and friends, and have them display it on their refrigerators.  It really is a cute children's birthday invitation, and one we will be adding to Savannah's keepsake box.

Come November, I will be visiting Paper Culture again to order birthday invitations for Arabella's 2nd b-day, along with our personalized photo Christmas greeting card.  Now, to only decide on which card and invitation to go with for these special occasions, as Paper Culture offers so many wonderful choices.

So, if you love creating personalized cards, stationary, label and party invitations, with or without personal photos, then you have to check out Paper Culture, and browse their unique product offering.  You will fall in love with the designs, and find it hard, like I do, to narrow down your selection, as they offer over 1000 different designs (all with a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied).  But, once you do, and you see firsthand how easy it is to shop Paper Culture, you will not want to shop elsewhere.  And, the final product, which arrives promptly, will delight both you and those you share the cards, stationary, etc. with.

Not only will you receive top quality products from Paper Culture, but you will feel good knowing that they plant a tree with EVERY order (planted over 300,000 trees to date), and that all cards and envelopes are made from 100% post consumer recycled paper, offsetting Paper Culture's entire carbon footprint. Love this! :-)
