Go Green This Holiday Season {GIVEAWAY}

I first worked with Katie from Green Apple Paperie a few years ago when she designed the sweet invitation for my baby shower. 

She also created the coordinating bookplates that were sent out with the invitations along with this poem:

A card is read and packed away
But a book will be looked at every day
So go to the shelves to take a look
And choose your favorite children's book
Sign the label with a message so true
And whenever the twins read it, they'll think of you!

Now I every time we read one of the books we got as gifts, I smile because when we open them, we see this label with messages from our friends and family.


Such great keepsakes!

Since then, Katie has expanded Green Apple Paperie to include fantastic party printables.  She works with each customer to customize the design, colors and text so each piece is unique and exactly what they want, and I can tell you from firsthand experience how great she is to collaborate with!  And the results speak for themselves.  I love this Monster Party:


The Red Wagon set is adorable!


And don't even get me started on the cuteness of the Princess Collection.


But Katie has totally outdone herself with her Rustic Christmas Printables.  Just take a look at this fabulosity!


Does it get any more festive than that?  For $10, you get all of the elements you need for any holiday happening - circle tags, gift tags, candy bar wrappers, candy buffet tags, recipe cards, tented food cards and patterned paper sheets that you can use so many ways (including to make the stocking garland and bag toppers).


This delightful set of printables will make planning your holiday party so much easier and at a price that won't break the budget.  And if you don't need the whole bunch, you can buy the gift tags:


Or buffet labels separately:


Makes you want to go out and plan a shindig, doesn't it?  Well, next time you do and you're on the hunt for party goodies, make sure you check out Green Apple Paperie.  I know you won't be disappointed!
