Letterpress Invitation Wedding Inspiration

Black and White Letterpress

With the Wedding Letterpress Collection launching just a few short weeks ago, I couldn’t help but be inspired by all of the beautiful designs that were fresh to the minted website. Despite my love for color and chaos, this simple black, grey and white wedding invitation suite caught my eye. With the contrast of elegant and basic fonts mixed in with modern sketched foliage, the invitation seemed like a perfect start to an effortless design.

Circus badges

By Jeran McConnel, Oleander and Palm and a Minted Party Ambassador

A circus themed party is a classic right?  It’s great for boys or girls, there’s animals and it offers a great bright color palette.  I made these “Greatest Kid on Earth” badges for 3 special birthday kiddos to wear to their circus themed party this weekend.

DIY Hair Ties

This just might be our easiest DIY ever. It’s as simple as tying a knot! We’ve been seeing these hair elastics in our favorite stores and all over the web, and can’t get enough. They’d make a great party craft for girls, a cute addition to a bridesmaid’s kit, or maybe they’re just the thing to brighten up that laundry-day-ponytail.


Happy Easter!

We hope you are having a wonderful day today with family and loved ones. And for those of you who are celebrating, we wish you a very Happy Easter! Click through to see a couple more Minted Easter celebrations.

Candy Button Photo Booth Backdrop

diy photo booth backdrop

I love party photo booths because they work equally as well at a kid’s birthday as they do at a wedding. And you can easily personalize them to the occasion with the backdrop. This candy button backdrop is so easy it only requires three supplies and about ten minutes.
