There have been a lot of birthday parties lately at Pear Tree! My niece, Taytum, just turned three. My sister-in-law told me that she wanted to have a party and asked me for birthday party ideas, starting with kids birthday invitations from Pear Tree. She wanted an invite that would show a lot of photos, since she loves to take pictures of her daughter. We decided on the Colliding Collage birthday invitations—perfect!
Now, you just cannot have a party without going all out like everybody is doing nowadays. We decided that an ice cream party would be a fun and started looking for ice cream party ideas. I volunteered to do the cakes. (I love to bake.) She wanted a butterfly cake, and I wanted to do some fun cakes for the table as well.
In support of National Aviation Day, which according to the national register of official-holidays-that-aren’t-really-holidays is a “federal observance celebrating the advancement and history of aviation,” we present a few of our favorite airplane designs! Happy Aviation Day!

Pear Tree Greetings is excited to announce that we are sending Chelsey, The Paper Mama, to BlogHer 2012! Chelsey is a longtime Pearista and supporter of Pear Tree, loving all things paper and believing in the power of a handwritten note.
Words from Chelsey:
Writing a hand written note means a lot to me. I LOVE to send cards just randomly to tell my friends how awesome they are… to tell my sister I miss her… or to say Happy Chocolate Cupcake Day (This is a REAL national day!). I love receiving hand written notes (*hint *hint ;D). So much better than all those bills I get!
She has contributed her many thoughts and opinions about Pear Tree on her blog, including topics around gift tag stickers, notelettes, thank you cards and more. We are happy for her to represent Pear Tree at BlogHer!
BlogHer conferences bring together thousands of women who blog from around the world to discuss, inspire and connect with each other. This is Chelsey’s second time going and she explains some tips she learned from last year in her post ‘So you’re going to BlogHer?’.
A few weeks ago, I had to bring my car into the shop to get it checked out. Since I had recently moved to town, I asked friends for recommendations and wound up bringing it to a small, locally-owned place in town.
From the beginning, I was pleased with their service. I was able to drop it off in the morning, and one of the employees was kind enough to meet me there before opening and give me a ride to work. Later that day they called to tell me they had found a serious safety issue with the car, completely unrelated to the problems I’d been having. Despite a heavy workload, they were able to get the parts and have them installed the very next day.
When I picked up the car, I found a small package of jelly beans with a handwritten note that said, “Thank you for supporting our locally-owned business.” I had a great feeling about them and knew I’d be going back to them when necessary. Well, that turned out to be sooner than expected. Continue reading
