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.
We’ve got serious spring fever over here! How about you? We’re already pinning ideas for spring and easter parties and wanted to share some of our favorites.
Be sure to check in with Modern Posh to find the perfect invitation to your spring party. All our designs have editable text, so you can tailor them to your specific party. Don’t you love the bright flowers and polka dots? This design screams SPRING!
To go with that fun, bright invitation, these eggs would be the perfect addition to your Easter extravaganza. We love the idea of brightening up the palette for a spring party. Traditionally, you’ll see lots of pastels, but what better way to leave the winter blues behind than with a punch of color. Don’t you love the glitter polka dots? These are beautiful and would be the perfect decor for your party.
Looking for the perfect addition to Easter dinner? These bunny rolls are adorable and totally doable. Your guests will be wowed over this subtle shape. To make your Easter dinner party more special, look for dishes that not only go well together, but could be in an Easter shape or garnished with fresh carrot tops.
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. These bunny favor bags are adorable and the perfect little gift to send home with guests. We love the idea of filling them with small trinkets and fancy treats. This little project is the perfect way to use your cute fabric scraps for patterned ears.
So there you have it, a few of our favorite Easter ideas from around the web. Are you already planning your Spring party?
As you know, here at Modern Posh, we have a wide variety of beautiful designs that are pre-made and sure to fit any family or occasion. But once in a while, we have the pleasure of creating custom cards for some of our favorite friends, Jami Lindberg of The Savvy Socialista and Sarah Schwartz, editor of Stationery Trends magazine. We wanted to share those lovely cards with you today.
The Savvy Socialista has been handling our social media and more for years now. Each year I look forward to creating her family’s Christmas card. I mean, her girls are just darling! You can’t go wrong with such a beautiful family. Jami’s business is focused on creating fun and effective branding for her clients, so whatever she sends out has to be stunning.

Maybe you didn’t get your holiday cards out this year, no fear, here at Modern Posh Designs, we’ve got some adorable Valentine’s Day cards. We love the idea of sending cards in February. Not only does it take the stress off your shoulders in December, but it spreads the love. People expect happy mail throughout the holiday season, but by February the mailbox is filled with junk again. Your friends and family will love to receive happy mail for Valentine’s Day.
Square cards are such a fun way to show a little personality in your card. The variety of fonts and bright colors in this design makes this a perfect pick for a fun photo with your kids. All Modern Posh cards come with a coordinating back design that makes the card professional and extra special.
This full bleed card is the perfect way to showcase a great photo. The heart overlay takes up minimal space, making this design all about the people in the photo. The multi-color chevron back makes this fun and a perfect balance between design and photo.
We love this doodle card design especially if you want to get your kids (especially little ladies) involved in choosing and mailing your card. They’ll love the sketches and rainbow gradient. 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.
Sending and receiving holiday cards is one of our favorite parts of the season. We love to connect with old friends, see how their family is growing and update our own family photo.

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.
It’s football season and over here at Modern Posh we couldn’t be more excited. We want to help you plan the ultimate football party. Whether it’s a birthday, baby shower or just a “game watching get together”, we’ve got you covered. All of our invitations have editable text that you can personalize for your specific event. We also carry a large selection of colors so you can show your team pride, starting with the invite.
One of the most simple ways to get started on your game day party prep is with COLOR. But what color? The decision is already made. Plan, create, buy details with the team colors in mind. Keeping all the elements in a specific pallet is an effortless way to tie the party together, plus the fans will appreciate all the team spirit!
Looking for a way to cover your generic table for the party? This idea is an easy DIY with BIG impact. This field table covering is not only festive, but totally functional. Protect that counter from spills and dings while looking totally cute. Add “laces” and this simple bunting becomes perfect for game day. Every party needs a pennant bunting.
One tip for successful party planning is to share the load. Plan to make a few delicious offerings and assign the rest. If you’re not into potluck, buy/order food. These football strawberries from berries.com are so fun and the perfect sweet treat for your guests.
Food options for a game day party are endless. Anything you can make into a football shape will be a total hit. We love this cheese ball, complete with laces. You could also buy a football shaped cookie cutter and go to town on brownies, sandwiches, cookies etc.
Chalkboards have become party staples and for good reason. These blank canvases are the perfect way to add a personal touch to a party, erase and start over your next party. The guys may not appreciate a beautiful table like this, but the girls sure will. We love the vintage football photos and use of astroturf under the cupcakes. And how about those football plates? Be sure to check your local party store for game day novelty items like this.
So now that we’ve peaked your interested, pick a game and get planning. And remember the best way to enjoy a game is with good food and a fun party.
Summer is winding down and it’s back to school time! Send your little ones with a gesture of teacher appreciation to get the school year off on the right foot. In addition to all the perfect Modern Posh gifts, we’ve gathered a few ideas from around the web that are clever and totally cute.
Leave it to Kim at The TomKat Studio to come up with something so fun! This is so simple to put together. Pick up some highlighters while buying the kids school supplies and print the free tag. Add a ModernPosh notepad and you’re done and done!
If you want to go the extra mile, like the sisters with My Sister’s Suitcase, a gift basket full of apple themed items is a perfect token for a teacher. Plus, the basket can be re-used in the classroom. Gift baskets are great because you can really add a personal touch. How about topping this basket off with Modern Posh personalized cards? These are perfect for notes to parents.
Aren’t these succulents stunning? And the book page covered vase. Amy over at The Idea Room is genius! This gift is perfect for anyone. Succulents are easy to care for and the perfect bit of greenery for a classroom. Include a set of these personalized speech bubble cards from ModernPosh to make the gift complete.

Here at Modern Posh, we love COLOR! Our designs are bright, beautiful and the perfect way to get the party started. Today we’re talking BRIGHT and FUN baby showers. We’ve got a great selection of beautiful baby shower invitations, but today want to focus on this beauty. We’ve come up with bright details to match the invite and make party planning a breeze.
Who says bright can’t be elegant? We just love the details of this bright safari shower. Aisha of Little Bit Magazine created a modern party by using crisp white details and classic patterns. We just love the animal cutout cupcake toppers and are sure this could be the perfect touch for a DIY shower. How about that cake? You can’t go wrong with an elegant white imprinted fondant cake with ruffled ribbon and a fabric flower. This shower strikes the perfect balance of bright, yet elegant.
Leave it to Kim of The TomKat Studio to present show-stopping bright baby showers. This shower was styled to celebrate Vera Bradley’s new baby collection using patterns just like the beautiful fabric used in the new baby line. This table is so successful because a color palette was chosen and maintained in every detail. We just love the banner and ribbon on front of the table. What a perfect way to personalize a party? Why have one cake when you can have three? Place multiple cakes at different heights to create a beautiful look on your table.
Pink and orange is a match made in heaven, especially if you want to throw a bright baby shower for a baby girl. We love when people incorporate a color theme into every detail of the party, even the food. This party does that SO well. How adorable is the baby mama banner? Never underestimate the power of paper pompoms and bright fresh florals, both great ways to incorporate color.
Are you familiar with operation shower? The event honors moms-to-be whose spouses are deployed members of the military. We love all the bright details used to make this a special day. We are especially crazy about that stunning cake by Hey There Cupcake. Talk about the perfect way to pull a bright color scheme together?! We also love the fun table put together by The TomKat Studio using brights next to kraft paper. The kraft paper look is so on trend right now and goes perfectly with the safari theme. How about that ruffled chair back? So fun!
