You thought choosing your card was hard...try adding address/return labels to the mix! There are so many cute and unique ones out there and at affordable prices that make adding that little extra something hard to resist. The photo labels in the top row are from Peartree Greetings.com, the second row labels are from Invitation Box.com and are $35 for 120. The newest of new are these wraps...the one on top is from Tarabledesigns on Etsy and the one on the bottom is from Paper-Moments.com.

We have found that the easiest way to change the look of a room is by simply changing your pillows (we are talking pillow covers people...heck just put the new ones over the old ones, less to store and it's a surprise every time you take them off :) We are huge believers in the your main pieces of furniture being B-A-S-I-C, that way you are always ready for an instant update. We are totally into John Robshaw, and these are a few of our favorites, however these would surely not go unnoticed on the Visa billl:) Some less expensive options can be found on Etsy (the above right picture is from Homesweet and is $35) or we found this one at Pottery Barn and both own several. Look for block prints, cheveron prints or graphic patterns as an update to the old stand by florals. Put that in your back pocket....

The Etsy Queen discovered Jack and Izzy and their adorable printable party kit ($12.00) and lilboo and co.'s cupcake toppers ($6.95). These can be personalized and customized and will give your party a lil somthin' somthin'. The kit requires a little work on your part but would be worth it when you can monogram your brains out (monogrammed toilet paper anyone?) Put these in your back pocket...
