These place cards with quotes and sayings about family were a hit at our family Mother’s Day party which is why I wanted to share them with you.  They would be perfect for any family gathering throughout the year.

I wanted to make our Mother’s Day celebration a focus on family…the importance of family, and the bonds that connect us. We did a big family style table and I created individual place cards with quotes and sayings about family to include.

I created the place cards using a website called PicMonkey.com, which is a free design site. It’s awesome. I use it all the time for photo editing and my blog graphics. Here’s the how-to on how to make your place cards:

Go to PicMonkey.com, then:

1. Click *t design icon at top, then select 8 x 10 and you should be brought to a blank white page 8 x 10 in size.

2. On the left column, click RESIZE, then uncheck “keep proportions” and change 3000 in second box to 3300, this will make your page roughly 8 x 11, or a letter size page you can run through your printer.

3. Click “Tt” icon on left, and add your text.  You can design 4 place cards to a page. Fonts I used are “De Walpergen Pica” and “CoffeeBreak” which is the scripty one and I am obsessed with it. That’s a Premium font for PicMonkey Royale members, but you can sign up for a free 30 trial and get it. If you want to continue using PicMonkey like I do, the $33 per year for all the Premium design perks is SO worth it!

4. When you are done designing, click “Save” and save as a JPG, always using “Sean” for the best quality.  Then you can open it from your computer and print like a normal letter, but on a white card stock.

Your finished design should look something like this:

5. Then you cut the squares out, and can decorate if you would like.  I cut little scrapbook design pages into strips to give them color, and added them either between the name and the quote, or at the bottom of the place card. I then rolled utensils in napkins, and adhered the place card to the utensil with a double stick tape tab.

And without further ado, here are the quotes and sayings about family I was able to pull off the internet after spending a gazillion hours on Pinterest searching things like quotes and sayings about family, quotes about family, quotes about mothers, cute quotes for kids, bible verses about family, etc.

Succulent Style [Giveaway!]

see more by

Succulent ~ isn’t it such a fun word?  I find them fascinating- the different colors and textures and shapes- some of them are so pretty they almost don’t look real!  I just love their fresh California Coastal feel…and that they don’t take a lot of water (or care!) Make sure to enter to win an arrangement in our giveaway below!

I was so inspired by them and the different arrangements I was seeing around that I took myself to the store determined I had DIY project- I was going to make some of my own amazingly beautiful succulent arrangements.

Yeah, that didn’t go so well.

I found myself having no idea where to start?  How many of each type to get?  And I was unimpressed with the variety the store had to offer, and the containers were less than attractive.  My DIY project was doomed before it began.

So a few weeks ago when I found myself at Pelican Courtyard Open Air Market  I was quickly drawn to the tables of beautiful-whimsically-arranged-glorious-succulents made by Succulent Style.

In chatting with the owners Denise and Joan about their creations their passion for these eco-friendly plants was apparent. Each creation was a beautiful mix of colors and textures artfully arranged in different vintage and unique containers to showcase the beauty of the succulents.The best part  is they offer them at an affordable price point (most arrangements are from $25-$75!!!)  I would have spent more than that on my sad little “craft”.

And, they make such a great gift! Perfect for Mother’s Day! Instead of the short lived bouquet of flowers- wouldn’t you love to receive long lasting/low maintenance arrangement of succulents that allow you to enjoy the pleasures of gardening at a relaxed pace?

In Denise and Joans own words:

“Our love affair with succulents are just as much about their beauty and personality as the life enhancing ways in which they uplift our souls and bring fun and energy to our spaces.”

Mommas~how fun would it be to have Succulent Style create some small little adorably contained succulents as a favor for your kiddos next birthday party?  Such a fun way to get them thinking about what it takes to care for a plant, be earth conscious & explore their green thumb!

I’m loving that this post is taking place during Earth Month because aren’t succulents just the GREENEST of the green?  A live plant that stores water in it’s juicy tissues – they’re just smart little devils!

Be sure to go visit Denise and Joan at the following upcoming local fundraising Boutiques they’ll be at this month and next and pick up a special Mother’s Day gift for the mothers in your lives:

April 28, Saturday 9am-2pm, LCP Spring Boutique, La Cristanita PreSchool, 35522 Camino Capistrano, San Clemente

May 10, Thursday, 4pm-8pm, American Legion Auxiliary Ladies Boutique, 215 15th St. , Newport Beach
