I’ve been in full party planning mode lately, with my sister’s wedding coming up and all the festivities leading up to it. Her shower was just past weekend and I had so much fun planning the menu and all the little beautiful details that made the day a huge success.
As creative as I like to think I am, I had lots of help from a delightful website called Minted.
Minted is a global community of independent graphic designers and an online store that prints and sells the best of their designs in the form of paper goods. They believe that great design lives and thrives in the hands of indie designers that people may not have access to through traditional retailers. You can find a variety of awesome stuff on their site; stationery, invitations, calendars, thank-you cards, art prints and party supplies to name a few.
I purchased the invites, envelopes, and cute “bridal shower” stickers that wrap around to the front of the envelope and have my return address on it.
I wish I could have bought everything in their Party General Store like this super adorable green cake stand! I’m still in love with this beautiful stand! They also have gorgeous apothecary jars that are hard to resist!
And if party supplies aren’t your thing, maybe consider some beautiful, unique, indie-designed Christmas cards. I tend to lean towards unique, personal cards and this one jumped right out at me. I love the idea of personalizing the card with major events from throughout the year!
One of my favorite art prints from Minted is the Vintage Kitchen Mixer. It even comes in the same blue as my Kitchen Aid mixer! I’m pretty sure this print will be making an appearance in my kitchen very soon.
They even have “inspiration boards” to help you arrange your art prints, or plan wedding colors and themes. The above board is one I made with a few of my other favorite art prints. I really love this function on their website because it helps you plan a beautiful layout. You can play around with different prints and see what works best together.
And if I haven’t already blown your mind with magnificent Minted beautifies, here’s another gem! It’s a journal (in my blogging colors, no less) that doubles as a recipe book! How adorable is that?! As much as I love having recipes saved online, or on my computer, this is a great way to have easy access to all my favorites without having to open up the laptop. It’s also a great way to hand down cherished family recipes, or recipes for your kids who are leaving home and venturing off to university or college.
Minted has so many amazing unique and beautiful items, you should really go and see for yourself! Fair warning, it’s incredibly easy to spend an hour or two on their website.
