a glam shower for Alexa Prisco!

Just last month, we were contacted by the talented Kim Myl of Lulu's Inspirations Event Design! She was planning a Glam baby shower for Alexa Prisco (originally from Jerseylicious and now star of The Style Network's 'The Glam Fairy'). She had found our Blush Pink Baby Stork Scratch-offs, and thought that they'd be perfect for Alexa's shower she was planning on September 23rd.

We prepared this box of goodies below, with a few little extras that we thought that Alexa and her guests would enjoy.

The shower was featured in OK Magazine this month, and Alexa shared all about it in her own blog here. Kim did a phenomenal job creating a "Glam" baby shower. See some select photos below. I love the little pink milkshake shots with the cute straws and white powder donuts... mmm! And pink OPI nailpolish for favors? Sweet!

Scroll to the bottom for a complete list of vendors!

Thanks to Alexa and also to event planner Kim Myl for allowing us to be part of such a sweet, special day!

what will it bee?

Earlier this month, I was contacted by a mom-to-be who had a special request! She and her husband are stationed in Qatar (next to Saudi Arabia), and she really wanted a fun way to share their news with their family members in Canada. She loved our Baby Bee Gender Announcements, but if we were to ship everything to her in Quatar, it would have taken months for them cross the ocean... twice! By then, baby would have ARRIVED! I offered to hand-write little notes on her behalf, and had her send me the exact wording for each card. I've shared some of the pictures below!

I sent her photos of the results so she could be part of the process. She told all of her family members to keep their eyes peeled for a special letter that would be arriving in the mail for each of them. How fun is that?

It did take a bit of time to do, but it was such an honor to be able to share in this family's special news. And really, getting a hand-written note with a scratch-off in the mail is SO much more fun than an ordinary phone call, wouldn't you agree?

inklings at the emmys! (part 2)

By now, Morgan Freeman should have our Vintags in his hands. Perhaps he's read each clever little line aloud in his renowned narrative voice. Hehe.

Perhaps Diane Sawyer has given a bottle of Dom Perignon to close a friend on her birthday with one of her Vintags on it.

Why? Because Morgan, Diane Sawyer and 800 other Emmy nominees and their guests took home these great Emmy Swag Bags at the 33rd Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards on October 1st. Inside each bag was a teensy tiny packet of goodies from Inklings Paperie!

You can read all about our crazy whirlwind of a week getting over 2,400 Vintags shipped to NYC here!

Below are some behind-the-scene shots from Off The Wall Promotions, the official provider of the Emmy Bags! It's incredible to see the work that goes into placing 30 brands into these coveted bags... all in the days and hours leading up to the event!

We were so pleased to be invited to participate, and it presented the perfect opportunity to launch our new Vintags (gift cards for wine)! We were even featured in a news article by Eric Lacy of MLive a few days after the event. You can read it here (Fact check: The Emmys were in NYC, not Hollywood... and we have been in business for 2 years, not ten). I'll admit, it was painful answering so many questions about myself (especially my age... haha!).

Hope you enjoy these shots... the bottom image shows what was in each package in greater detail.
