Build a Stellar Wedding Welcome Bag

by

Putting together a stellar Wedding Welcome bag can be trickier than it seems.  Between finding the right tote and trying to select the goodies, it can cause unexpected stress in wedding planning.   Trying to do it yourself and pull it all off on your own is even more stressful.  Luckily, a few custom labels can take the hassle and guess work out of coordinating the items in your bag.

A basic box is a great start and holds a ton of items.  Kraft and black paper make for a simple color scheme that is easy to coordinate.  These water bottle labels are waterproof and self adhesive, so they couldn’t be easier to use!   Small plastic bags are cheap and perfect for treats, plus they are easy to find at your local craft store.  Add scrapbooking paper and a favor label, like this one, and your guests will have a handsome snack.  Every good welcome basket has mints and booze, so don’t forget the mini wine labels and candy kiss labels.  With coordinating labels, the effort is minimal and the impact is massive!  Don’t forget the favor label on the top of the box to tie it all together!

Here, custom labels are the hero again, pulling all the items together for a coordinated container.  Use this label, typically used on a wine bottle, with a length of black and white ribbon on the front to create a dynamic looking gable box.  Dress up a basic water bottle with these custom labels.  Mini liquor bottles and soda mixer get a makeover with custom liquor and favor labels.  Tried and true spice labels designate hand wipes as “fresh and clean” and snacks as “favorites” to add a dose of personality.   Literally tied together with black and white yarn this attractive welcome bag is a cinch to create.  As for convenience, you can order your labels, gable boxes and treat bags all in one place…wedding bag: complete!

Who wouldn’t feel welcomed with this gorgeous and dynamic wedding welcome gable box?

Lastly, is this stunning and modern wedding welcome tote.  Perfect for a swanky affair, this colorful label will let your guests know they are in for a great event.  Here, this wine label works overtime as both a bottle label and is used again as a door hanger.  To create a hanger like this for your bag, simply add a wine label to a length of sturdy card stock.  Next, use a 2.25″ round hole punch (like this one) at the top and you’re done!  We also switched up the use of this mini wine label to go on a cute square hang tag.  Snacks and the ever-important Tide pen are given descriptive spice labels.  Finally, the quintessential wedding welcome water bottle is beautified with these custom labels.

Encourage your guests to have a great time by including a mini hangover kit as well.  You know, hangovers last a lifetime, but memories last forever!  We made a fun kit here by including a little something for hydration, a little something for the head and a little hair of the dog.

 

Now that you’ve gathered your items and decided what you want to go into your bag, you’ve got to decide how to get it in the hands of your guests.  In the past, it was common to have the bags waiting for your guests at check-in.  Another alternative is to assemble your items, display them in a pretty way, and let your guests pick and choose what they’d like.  What may be work for you can turn into fun for your guests!

Gathered wedding welcome bag items

Wedding welcome bags are a quintessential way for you and your new Mr. or Mrs. to really show your personalities.  Don’t be afraid to be fun, playful or a bit tongue-in-cheek.  After all, this is just the start of your amazing festivities… ENJOY IT!!!

Hops for Pops

by

Nothing says fathers day like seeing Dad kick his feet up with a nice cold brew in hand… hops for pops!  Dad’s are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, so we’re here to take some of the guess work out of it for you.  We can promise he doesn’t want a tie or a book of coupons, no matter how trendy or sweet.  He doesn’t want a “World’s Best Grandad” shirt from his daughter still in high school.  He doesn’t want a mug shaped like a toilet or a visor with fake hair attached.  What he does want, however, is that good ‘ole standby gift that never fails: cold, hoppy, refreshing beer.  Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, just get him what you know he likes: his favorite brew with a little extra something, like a custom label to show the love.  These custom labels can be purchased here and offer a 48 hour turn-around time, so Dad can sip in style!

So make sure your Dad has a fully balanced diet this year: a drink in BOTH hands.

Farmer’s Market Wedding

by

farmer

If you’re more into farm stands and wildflowers than fancy floral arrangements and champagne, a farmer’s market wedding might be the right theme for you. A farmer’s market theme is a fresh idea that brings the farm to table movement straight to your guests. Celebrate your love, and your love for nature and the outdoors, with a simple but stunning wedding. Enjoy planning the details so that you wow your guests and give them a day that everyone will always remember! Let’s take a look at some ideas.

 

 Location, Location, Location!

themeweddingmeadow

If you want an outdoors wedding, a farmer’s market themed wedding might be for you. Think about how much fun youhave at a farmer’s market: you probably sample different foods, enjoy the nature, listen to live music and mingle with other shoppers. Find a beautiful location for your wedding and set it up similar to a farmer’s market.

 

Farmer’s Market Themed Favorsjelly

When you leave a farmer’s market, you get to bring some fun stuff home with you. If you’re going to do a farmer’s market themed wedding, be sure to have some delicious goodies your guests can bring home and enjoy later. Custom jam and jelly jars is a fun idea to tie in the farmer’s market theme; you can get custom food jar labels printed that are both affordable and professional looking.

If you plan to have a kid friendly wedding, it’s easy to provide things for your smallest guests to enjoy. A face painting booth, a potato sack race or other outdoor games will be sure to leave the little ones smiling. For the grown-up guests, a live outdoor band will tie your wedding together. You can skip the expense of a formal dance floor and use the grass for your dancing – although, depending upon the band you contract, you may need to provide a covered outdoor area and electrical outlets!

Farmer’s Market Themed Beer & Wine Tastings!

Serve food buffet-style at tables set up to look like farmer’s market farm stands. Have wine and beer tastings, ala a farmer’s market, and order customized wine and beer labels to personalize the experience for your guests!

Holly Jolly Holiday Kids Party

by

party-room-1024x682

Well we posted a Holiday party that wasn’t your traditional colors, of red and green, so we thought we would give you one of those as well!

Here is a super cute ‘Chilly Penguin Party’ that we just love from Frog Prince Paperie. Her daughter wanted this party and we can see why! HOW CUTE!

peguin-shoot32web-1024x717

Everything at this party, from the cupcake fondant topers to the giant penguin was in theme! And to keep up with the spirt the party snacks were just as cute..

peguin-shoot27-web-682x1024

peguin-shoot29-web-701x1024

Dont we all wish we had this kind of food creativity? I know I do! The Snow Crunch looks fantastic. Even better, the original post states that almost all of the dishes were from a thrift store or Walmart (and then spray painted of corse), but what a great upcycle!

peguin-shoot34web1-682x1024

peguin-shoot21web-1024x689

They also used some great, and totally reusable decor! Christmas ornaments as place card holders, and party hats as trees! This party only gets cuter as it goes… each little girl who attended got an apron to wear while make their very own gingerbread house!

peguin-shoot05-web-682x1024

Cute plates with candies on there were placed around the table when it was time to decorate their houses.

peguin-shoot26web-1024x682

I also love one of the tutorials that came along with this post, the paper ornaments tutorial! It could be used for any and all holidays, events, and so forth.

For this party I would recommend using our Red Frame Beer Labels, you wouldn’t be putting them on beer of course, but they are super customizable for each theme (with adding in your own photos)! Even as name tags, or food custom labels they would look great!

Make sure if you are hosting a party, and using our product line, to send us photos afterwards! We would love to see them, and possibly create a post about your super cute party.
