Accented with a Scarf

An embroidered scarf is the perfect holiday gift to use in the winter months and to coordinate with your favorite coat or jacket. These monogrammed scarves are available in so many assorted colors and styles and can be finished off with your favorite accent thread color and initial font. Great for added style, but the personalization also helps prevent your scarf from being mixed up with someone else's at a party or gathering.

Finish With The Perfect Shoe

Talk about a fun way to put some prep in your step, custom monogrammed shoes are the perfect touch for any classic jeans day or dress up your favorite sun dress with classic leather sandals created just for you with your embroidered initials. Needlepoint loafers and mules are the ultimate in preppy and are fully customizable in any two yarn colors. They are even available in leopard and zebra styles that are incredibly unique to fit your personality!

Prep Up Your Look

Add a beautiful sash with your initials to any outfit and you have instant glam and poise. They are beautiful when adorned with floppy sun hats around the brim - a great way to celebrate your preppy style at the horse races this year! Choose your seersucker color and thread plus font style for a look that is incredibly unique and so very chic. The embroidery accents this gorgeous accessory and makes for a great look for maternity wear or simply to use as a belt with your favorite slacks or skirt.

Whatever the look you are going for, add a personal touch that is just for you with yummy handbags and purses in any color you prefer to accent your custom style. Pull it all together with the shoes and jewelry for a look that will be ready for the runway or red carpet!

How To Host A Great Engagement Party

Make Your Party a Success

Looking to host an engagement party celebration for a newly betrothed couple? What a joyous time this can be and we want o help you host a fabulous gathering to honor the upcoming nuptials of two special people.

First off, you will want to meet with the bride to help determine what her visions are for the celebration of her big news. She will want to show off that beautiful ring to all of her friends and family but what size gathering will she want? Some brides go for a larger and more formal style engagement party, while other brides opt for a more casual picnic style party to show off her personal style. Whatever your venue, make sure to get a guest list in hand to ensure that all your guests will be comfortable at the site of your choosing.

The Guest List

It is important to follow etiquette for who will be invited to your engagement soiree. Just as the rule stands for only inviting guests to the bridal showers who will also be included in the wedding guest list, the same rule applies to an engagement party. It is customary for guests to bring along a monogrammed engagement gift for the bride and groom to celebrate their upcoming special day. Many people like to give something with the last name initial of the groom so that the item can be displayed in the couple's home for years to come. Some great ideas for these gifts can include beautiful engraved silver gifts or julep cups which are always a favorite. A monogrammed serving tray and matching plates with the groom's last name is a unique and personal way to shower the couple with something fun to look forward to using for entertaining after the wedding. Brides love to be able to host a beautiful dinner party after returning from the honeymoon and personalized dishes are the perfect addition to her new kitchen.

Personalize Those Party Accessories

No classic party is complete without some kind of personalized party fare. One idea that brides and grooms love to order are monogrammed plastic cups that can be washed in the dishwasher and used over and over. Personalize with the couples names and engagement or wedding date for a fun keepsake for all the guests. Custom personalized Styrofoam cups make a casual affair so much more fun. They can be monogrammed for a fun look with a wide selection of fonts, from fun and funky, to a traditional script or block style. Need a way to light all those candles? Do it in preppy style with some personalized match books that make a great party favor for your guests. There is a large movement of monogrammed matches appearing as wedding favors at preppy receptions.

Have the Bride Create a Gift Registry

It is a long standing classic tradition to bring a personalized engagement gift to the celebration of the upcoming big day. Make sure to ask the bride to create a wedding gift registry at her favorite shops or boutique so that guests can purchase items from her registry with confidence that she is sure to love her gift. When registering for monogrammed gifts for the wedding, it is very helpful to include font choices and thread color selections to ensure that any home accessories ordered will match the bride's décor in her new home. A custom embroidered throw pillow with her new monogram is an excellent gift for the living room as long as the colors and fonts match the core design of the room. A personalized casserole dish is a fun wedding gift and by adding it to her wedding registry she will ensure that it will turn out with the colors she selected.

Give The Gift of Wedding Accessories

The upcoming wedding day is a special day to plan for and choosing the wedding ceremony accessories is a fun way to bring a personal touch to the big day. A monogrammed guest book makes for a special idea for engagement party guests to sign in, but can also be used at upcoming bridal showers, luncheons and for the wedding reception as well. Our custom books are available in casual cottons as well as dressy silk. Add a matching wedding photo album for a wonderful keepsake that will allow her to keep all those wedding photos in one place.
