Spring has been slowly unveiling itself since Daylight Savings was ushered in last weekend. What better way to welcome the season than with some fun ideas of throwing a spring party to welcome new life, growth and birth. Whether you’re celebrating it in remembrance of the resurrection or in the spirit of gift-giving and Easter egg hunts, here are some modern and eco ideas on how to throw a refreshing spring party.
Hot summers are the best excuse to take a trip to the pool and beach. As a new mom, I was extremely excited to take my 9-month-old for her first poolside dip. But, as I’m sure some moms would agree, I was worried about how she would fare in the water, so I perused tons of online mommy forums to find the best baby float to keep her happily splashing yet safe. I found this Swimways baby float to not only be accommodating with its shade canopy and safe with its breathable mesh, but also bold and cheery like summer colors should be. And why should babies have all the fun?! I’ve compiled a list of poolside and beachfront picks for the rest of the family while your little ones are splashing away in the pool. Dive in!
With the month of May wrapping up and June creeping around the corner, the smell of summer is in the air. What better way to welcome this sunshine-filled season than with barbecues! This week, we are inspired by (and totally salivating at) all things dedicated to the grill. Need other good reasons to throw down on the grill? Well, Father’s Day and graduations are coming up, so throw a memorable BBQ for the special dads and grads in your life. If you need an invitation for your barbecue, be sure to check out one of our favorites – an invitation with a modern take of the tools of the BBQ trade.
Here at Paper Culture we celebrate many precious moments together from summer barbecues, to birthday celebrations, to major milestones such as weddings. So it’s with great joy that we share our designer Tammy Sun‘s sweet baby shower with you.
Before finding out their baby girl’s gender, Tammy and her husband were calling the baby, “Bumby” and the nickname totally stuck. While planning for the baby shower, Tammy didn’t want to go the all-pink route (she is a self-professed tomboy) and chose a neutral color palate of pale yellows and dove grays to set the tone. She settled on a bee-themed party and the cute-as-can-be baby shower was an absolute success.
Tammy designed the baby shower invitation, the Stroller Peek-A-Boo and as one of the many perks of being a part of the team, she was able to customize the colors of her invitation to match her party’s palate. The end result was displayed on a wooden easel.
My spies at Paper Culture headquarters recently pinged to tell me that our very own CEO, Christoper Wu, had declared his upcoming birthday wish to be able to celebrate his special day at McDonald’s. I was confused. Why McDonald’s? Why now? So I asked Chris a few questions inquiring minds want to know:
CW: In my mind, I attend one every birthday – but in reality, it has been a lifelong dream never fulfilled until this birthday.
PC: What’s your favorite childhood memory and did you recreate it?
CW: When mom was away, dad’s form of cooking was to take me to McDonalds – not to say that I looked forward to mom leaving, but…
PC: Grimace or Hamburglar? Why?
CW: Grimace – because my tummy these days looks like his! (and besides, I think Barney is a Grimace rip off)! [read more]
