Tip > Reply Cards

Designing, stuffing, mailing ... oh, my.  The last thing you want to do when you start receiving replies back is worrying about who's reply is who's.  The ever faithful M____________ line is where your guests should write in their names ... or provide a return address on the back flap of the reply envelope.  But this is not always the case.  One quick step can save you hours worth of detective work.  

Set yourself up a spreadsheet or word-processing document numbering all of your addresses - then simply number (somewhere inconspicuous - like the back corner) all your reply cards - making sure to carefully match up the corresponding number to the corresponding address when it comes time to mail.  So that when Uncle Fred & Aunt Sally forget to write in their names and supply a return address on the reply envelope - you know to check them off the list.  Hello!  Genius.

Movin' In!

Oh, man ... it has been a while since my last post!  Busy, busy.  Lots going on and some great news to share.  This week, together with my friends (Blooms and PLUSH),  I'm moving into a quaint studio space in Lincoln.  The three of us are beyond excited to be out of our home, local coffee house or restaurant to meet clients.  I'll post photos from the move-in this week.  We've also created a sort of gateway to our shared space online at throwasoiree.com.

A little about my office mates ... Blooms is Blooms by Martha Andrews an amazing floral designer specializing in premier weddings & events.  Her work has been featured in numerous local wedding magazines and some incredible national magazines.  I had the pleasure of working with Martha on the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria Open House and Photo Shoot back in July. Martha is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to couture floral design.  Her design work is captivating and beautiful without an ounce of pretentiousness. 

PLUSH is owned by the ever fabulous and detail driven Michaela Rodgers.  Michaela is your girl if you're out of your element planning a big bash.  From planning an event from beginning to end or handling the day of details she's got it covered.  Not to mention a design eye that is fashion forward ... putting just the right touches on the big details and the teeniest of the tiny ones.

I can't wait to join my office mates and see what crazy new adventures the next few months will bring!
