  4. A Mermaid Party

    Mermaids are a huge summer trend and make a great party theme. We’re obsessed with this Mermaid Party created by Natalie Thomas over at Nat’s Next Adventure. Natalie was throwing a Sprinkle (a baby shower for a woman who already has a child), but many of these ideas (like the paper dolls) would translate well for a kid’s birthday party, too!

  5. The Perfect Pool Party

    One of the most fun ways to cool off during the summer is a pool party with friends. Here are some of our must-haves for a great summer bash.



    First thing’s first: you need a way to haul your stuff! This Red Stripe Tote Bag is durable and cute. Even better? It’s got plenty of room for this super cute Beach Radio, because a pool party is nothing without music!  We love this vintage-looking radio because you can plug in your iPod or smart phone to stream your own playlist. And of course you’ll need a pool float! Lounge around and catch some rays on this funny Pizza Slice Float.

  7. “Meteor” Shower (A Paper Source Baby Shower)

    One of the great things about working at Paper Source, with tons of creative people, is the ability to celebrate our friends and co-workers’ life moments in meaningful ways. With baby showers, especially, it’s always fun to think of themes that really resonate with the mom-to-be. For this baby shower, we knew we wanted to have a celestial-themed bash that coordinated with her nursery motif. Since we’d already thrown one “stellar” baby shower, we wanted to make this one unique. We started by calling it a “meteor” shower with an emphasis on planets and the solar system.

  8. Hello World! (A Paper Source Baby Shower)

    It’s probably no surprise that we love celebrating here at Paper Source. When a fellow co-worker is having a big life moment, we see that as a great opportunity to create an event that perfectly matches their character with crafted and personal touches. We recently threw a baby shower for a member of our web team, Kristen, who has been with Paper Source for years. Kristen was expecting a baby boy, but also appreciates a subtle and sophisticated aesthetic. Because of that, this shower theme could easily be used for a boy/girl/gender neutral shower by simply using a different accent color. Here’s a look at some of our favorite touches.

    We decided to hold a baby shower luncheon in one of our meeting rooms in the office. In order to make sure it felt intimate and inviting, we got rid of phones and cords, and added a Paper Bag table runner and D.I.Y. floral arrangements for a sweeping tablescape.
