Live Your Style ... Weddings

Creative weddings are always more fun!

We recently received these pics from Erin Hession Photography and loved the photos and use of our medallion green design. The bride chose medallion green flat cards for the table markers to coordinate with her stylish pink and green wedding tables. The photocard served as the wedding ceremony program, adding a photo and her own pink dot ribbon for a personal touch.

Please visit Erin Hession’s blog to see more of her photography
and congratulations to the Newlyweds!

Have you used our products in a creative way?
Let us know, we would love to post about it!

It's Fun to be One!

With the success of celebrity bump and baby bags, Jewels and Pinstripes has taken on a new venture…providing “It’s Fun to be One” birthday bags for celebrity one-year-old children.

We are thrilled to personalize preppy whale and alligator box sets for the celebrity one-year-olds and encourage their parents to use them in correspondence with the child’s family and friends and even to showcase some of their first works of art.

Founder of Jewels and Pinstripes, Julie Kenney states “I’m so excited to expand my partnership with Boatman Geller [first birthday bags]. Their adorable designs continue to appeal to our celebrity recipients as they have received numerous follow-up orders from Hollywood moms who have fallen in love with Boatman Geller stationery.”
