Unique Valentines

Although this was originally offered as a holiday card, this snowman could go for Valentine's Day or give a double-dose of happiness as a late New Year/Valentine greeting. Especially if you never got around to sending out Christmas cards or the New Year's cards you planned to use after said holiday correspondence flake-outs!

Attention all Chi-Os and trendsters who heart owls: these two designs are perfect for you.

For the picture-perfect family. Tasteful triptychs.

Love brown, love sepia photos with brown designs. Love pugs. That's why I picked this. If you have a pug or three, this is for you.

     Valentine's Day is less than three weeks away, kittens! Get your list together and get on it! Click the designs above for shopping information. XO!

Mad Men themed Party Part 3: All About the Monogram

     Your Kitty has been publishing this blog for over two years, albeit intermittently. Of all the posts, the Mad Men party theme has definitely garnered the most interest. With Awards Season upon us, nothing suits an entertainment occasion quite as nicely as a Mad Men party. This post, part 3 of the series, focuses on the monogram: an essential component of swank for the Draper in all of us! Whether you're looking for party favors, prizes or decor to pull your party together, monogrammed items will give your event the polish and perfection of a Mad Men set.

Whether you're having a Mad Men-style wedding or an awards season soiree, this photo backdrop can be personalized with a simple monogram to give your party a true red-carpet vibe. Click the image for more information.

The Martini Bar is a must at any Mad Men-themed shindig. You must use real glassware. Do you think Betty draper drinks out of a paper or plastic cup?

Every swankster should have his or her own monogrammed flask. Click images for more information.

An elegant monogram for the top of your cake, whether your party is for a birthday, wedding or graduation.

Your Mad Men-themed (or inspired event) requires a traditional invitation. It can be vintage or retro, but should have a classic, clean feel. See some examples below and click here for shopping links : Hip, Modern, Exclusive Wedding Invitations!

Valentine's Day Weddings, Showers and Parties

I love this idea so much, I'll probably feature it frequently for different party ideas. If you're throwing a shower this spring, it would be a great gift for the bride and groom to use at your party and the wedding.

As an eco-blogger, nothing makes me happier than favors that aren't just going to wind up as more plastic schlock in a landfill somewhere. 

Organize your party favors by the entrance so guests can grab their goodies on the way out. Adorable for a Valentine's Day-themed shindig.

With this wedding wish and prayer box, you'll have more than just memories of your special day. Guests' sweet wishes and solemn prayers can be preserved forever in this wonderful keepsake. Simply leave note cards next to the box and invite guests to slip a special message inside.

Adorable tea party favor boxes that double as place card holders.
