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.

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.

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.

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!
So there you have it, just a small sampling of the beautiful, bright baby shower ideas from the most talented people around the web. To see all our beautiful baby shower invites visit our Oh So Baby category.
What better way to celebrate the summer than with a pool party? Planning a party can be intimidating, but we’ve got you covered from the perfect invitation to food, drinks and decor. The first step to any great party is choosing a theme. Read on to see all the details to match our pink and blue invitation and theme.
Pool parties come with heat so when choosing your menu, be sure to choose items that are sure to refresh your guests like these homemade popsicles. The flavor combinations are endless! Choose a flavor/color that matches your party color scheme. Take it one step further and server on color coordinated sprinkles for a real show stopping display.
This ice cream stand is the perfect addition to your next pool party. Nothing beats ice cream served pool side. We love the beautiful striped cart and attention to all the details making this a beautiful party center piece and a delicious treat everyone is sure to enjoy.
One of the easiest ways to create a beautiful party is to choose a theme, in this case a color theme, and stick to it with all the details, including the food and drink. This pink lemonade would be the perfect addition to any “pink” party.
Don’t forget the decor! We just love these beach balls hanging above the buffet table. Such a simple idea that makes a huge impact. When throwing a pool party think outside the box for decor. Find ways to use non-decor items that you use at the pool. For example, hang beach towels in coordinating colors.
We hope we’ve inspired you to throw a coordinated summer pool party with your friends and family with our Pool Party Invitation as the perfect jumping off point. Be sure to check out ModernPosh to find the perfect invitation for any party you are planning.

What better way to announce the arrival of your girly-girl than with glitter! Birth announcements can be so boring and generic, but this pink card is a sure to stun. In addition to the glitter, we love the girly script font and heart detail.

This personalized, fold-over card is so sparkly and girly! It would make note writing just a little more exciting. We love the bright, multi-colored name and the totally whimsical font, but the pattern IN glitter is showstopping. Everyone needs a set of note cards for personal correspondence, but personalized cards also make perfect gifts for girlfriends. These are just too cute NOT to hang on to.
We love the use of glitter on a photo card and this one is the perfect choice for your holiday card. The holidays are a perfect occasion to share a little festive glitter and this card makes that easy. The holiday greeting in PINK glitter is beautiful and especially fun for a family of girlies.
In addition to glittery stationery, we’ve come up with some super fun sparkly phone cases we just know you’ll love. This case is simple, but customizable with your name. In a world where we all use the “same” phone, a case with your name is a fantastic feature.
What a fantastic way to take your favorite photo with you? This glittered case features your name AND a photo of your choosing. We love the idea of using your sweet kids faces on your phone. You can take them everywhere! In addition to the details of this case, the multi-colored look is so bright and happy. This would make an ideal Mother’s Day gift with a cherished photo.
So if you’re a girl who loves glitter, be sure to watch for all of our new designs coming out sparkly and ready to add a little pizazz into your life.

We love the bright colors that set up this party, but also the bold chevron pattern. It’s the perfect unexpected punch in the decor. This party is a perfect example of the power of paper. A lot of the theme is carried out with coordinating paper details and we just love that cohesive look. Another bit of decor that is fabulous is the mini pompoms. We’ve all used pompoms for party decor, but the quantity, small size and use one the trellis is a fresh take we adore.
So now we’ve given you the perfect invitation and some fab ideas for your own party, it’s time to get planning. We’re sure your guests — young and old — will love your fresh approach on the typical Easter color scheme.
