It seems like school just let out for the summer, but back to school season is creeping up on us! If you want to be ahead of the game, now’s the time to place your Modern Posh order for all the paper goods to start the new year out on the right foot. Be sure to order a little gift for your teachers, but also a little something for your kids. I’ve heard of a fun tradition in families where the kids have a little gift waiting for them at breakfast on the first day of school. It’s usually an extra special school supply. Whatever you need for back to school, Modern Posh has you covered.
For the Student: Order these for your kids to hand out to friends or for you to hand out to other moms. That way, everyone will know how to contact you for playdates. A new school year often means new friends. What better way to encourage making friends than sending your little one with these friendly cards.
For the Teacher: I love starting the year off on the right foot by sending a little teacher gift on the first day. Be sure to choose something useful. These cards are such a thoughtful gift for teachers who are constantly jotting their email or phone number on scratch paper for parents.
FLAT NOTE CARDS WITH COORDINATING ENVELOPES
For the Student: In this texting/social media world, I like to encourage actual letter correspondence with my kids. I’m trying to teach them to write handwritten notes, just because. I also encourage sending thank you notes for just about everything. Kids are so excited to write notes when they are learning to write and older kids are excited about personalized stationery.
For the Teacher: These make beautiful AND useful gifts for teachers. We carry designs that are sophisticated and some that are suited for kids. Teachers are always looking for something to write a little note to a parent, another teacher or class aid. Make life easy with these personalized cards.
For the Student: I’m a list maker and apparently that’s rubbing off on my little ones. They want to make lists of doodles before they can actually write. Once again, having a personalized notepad makes kids feel special and important. These are perfect for back to school to-do lists, school clothes shopping lists, goals for the upcoming year and brainstorming for any school project.
For the Teacher: These are great for sending home quick, casual notes to parents because they are personalized. Parents are sure who’s sending the note home. Teachers have a lot going on and having a place to write down important things to do or remember can be really helpful.
So there you have it, THREE must have items for back to school. Be sure to check out Modern Posh for all of our lovely designs and products.

It’s just about time to celebrate the moms of the world. Are you ready? No fear! We’ve gathered some great ideas from around the web and can’t wait to share a few tips for the perfect Mother’s Day.
The Perfect Meal
One of the most meaningful ways to show mom you care is by preparing a delicious and beautiful meal. She will be grateful for the thought and effort, but especially that she doesn’t have to cook! Make it a really special meal by sending out invitations. We’ve got some versatile options at Modern Posh that would be perfect for a Mother’s Day party.
We love all the details of this Mother’s Day brunch. Notice the AMAZING runner? Those are the kid’s fingerprints. You’ve got to check out all the projects that go along with this party. Since this is a party for the women in your life, it’s a perfect opportunity to use feminine colors and elements. We love the spring color scheme used in this party. Don’t forget the flowers!
Maybe brunch doesn’t work for your schedule or group. How about a Mother’s Day Tea Party? This may be more suited for the girls in the family, but could be such a fun theme to plan a party around. You just can’t go wrong with dainty desserts and finger sandwiches. If weather permits, host the event outside for a memorable afternoon.
The perfect meal for Mother’s Day consists of YOUR mom’s favorite meal… but if you don’t know her favorite or don’t feel too confident in the kitchen, you can’t go wrong with a crepe bar with loads of fruit, Nutella and fresh whipped cream. Whatever you choose, keep the menu simple to avoid adding stress to your day. What your mom really wants is to spend time with her loved ones.
The Perfect Gift
These personalized notepads are the PERFECT gift for mom! We especially love using a photo of the kids and mom on the notepad to be reminded of her little ones every time she jots a note. You’ll find tons of great designs on our site, along with other perfect gifts to keep mom organized.
We love the idea of gifting your mama a print that tells her how much you love her. This little piece would be the perfect reminder of your love every time she walks by. If you want to give a really great gift, buy the print (or create yourself) AND the perfect frame. That way, all mom has to do is find a spot. You can even offer to hang the nail.
Kids say the darndest things and this interview would be the perfect momento of life as a young mom. It would be perfect to do for mom and grandma. Once the kids have answered the questions, find a unique way to display the answers — a photo book or framed print would be fun! And if you want to step it up a notch, ask your kids the question and film the interview. Any mom would treasure this gift forever!
Love this throw pillow for the proud mom. This is another way to tell your mom how you feel, but in a fun way that will be an accessory for the home.
So hopefully you’re feeling inspired to do something special for the mamas in your life. Be sure to check out Modern Posh for perfect gifts and party invites for your Mother’s Day celebration.

These coconut nutella nests would be the perfect addition on your Easter buffet. These are festive as well as tasty. Buffet style is a great solution for a big group. Even if you decide to do a plated or family style main course, setting out a dessert buffet with a variety of sweets and treats is such a special touch for guests.
One of our favorite things to do when hosting a party is to send loved ones home with a momento to remember the party.

The polka-dot design on the back of this card really makes this card the all-round pick for a playful photo and card. This would be a great choice if your kids want to hand out personalized valentines to friends and classmates. Skip the grocery store options and order a personalized card from Modern Posh.
The typography in this card is so fun and colorful. We love using black and white photos with bright colorful designs, like this one. The bright LOVE text shows up so well on the photo and the colors don’t compete, but compliment each other.
So now’s the time! Find your favorite photo, have a mini photo shoot or hire a photographer; choose your photo and design and order now. You’ll have plenty of time to get these out by Valentine’s Day.

Can you believe it’s that time of year? It’s so important to start thinking about your holiday card and photo early to avoid the stress that comes with December. At Modern Posh we have a great selection of cards for all photo shapes, sizes and layouts. You’ll love the bright colors and fun fonts on our beautiful two-sided cards. In order to make things super easy for you, we’ve got a three step guide to making your holiday cards a cinch.
Step 1: Browse the beautiful cards at Modern Posh. Pick out your favorite designs and take note of photo orientation and colors in the design. It doesn’t hurt to coordinate photo colors to the colors of the card design.
One thing to consider when taking your photos for your holiday card is orientation. If you have a favorite Modern Posh card in mind, be sure to let your photographer know what orientation the photo needs to be: horizontal, vertical or square.
Our cards are so bright and fun that a black and white photo is the perfect compliment, plus everyone looks great in black and white. In addition to bright colors, we are known for mixing on-trend patterns for an eclectic layered look.
Sometimes the photo needs to be the star of the card, in which case we have you covered. You’ll find options for full bleed photo cards with a small, yet well designed message perfect to showcase that perfect photo.
Step 2: Find a photographer that fits your style or grab a friend and a tri-pod. Come up with ideas for your photo location, clothing, posing and props. We’ve collected some of our favorite ideas, but be sure to browse pinterest for ideas that fit your family.
Step 3: Prepare for the photo shoot. Makes sure kids are well fed, rested and maybe even bribed. Be prepared to go with the flow and relax. Candid photos are so fun and real smiles come when it’s a low-pressure situation.
Step 4: Choose a photo and visit Modern Posh to order your cards. Patiently await the arrival of your beautiful cards. Address, stamp and mail to your loved ones.
