Hi guys! Sorry today's blog is late but there is a lot going on these days. About a month ago, I decided to make some major changes to my business. Although, I will always love weddings and working with brides to create custom wedding invitations, I have decided to concentrate on expanding my paper goods and gifts business. If you have been following my social media, you will notice lots of new designs and great new items. It has been so much fun creating them and I can promise you that there will be a lot more as we continue.
I am also excited to announce that we will be offering a wholesale line starting in January so if you have a favorite store that you think should carry our items, please let us know or share our page with them.
Along with adding to our shop, we are in the process of working on a big marketing campaign for the rest of 2017. Tonight, my backyard will be the site of a fun party photoshoot. We will be featuring our custom coasters, lucite trays and lucite ice buckets. But what would a photoshoot be without a little fun. My guests for the photoshoot will be taste testing some fun summer cocktails. Don't worry, I will be sharing those same cocktails with you later in the month, along with recipes so that you can create them yourself for your fun summer parties.
Those that know me, know my love of sports, especially football and baseball. In August, our second photoshoot will be Tailgate Party. I am so excited! I will be debuting a new line of tailgate items featuring your favorite college colors. Along with our fan favorite coasters, trays and ice buckets which are perfect for tailgates, will be adding monogrammed wine glasses and melamine plates in your favorite colors.
Finally, it's hard to believe that it'a already time to start thinking about our Christmas designs so that you will have them in plenty of time to celebrate. This year, Laurie Louis Design will debut a line of Christmas wrapping paper to go with our existing custom gift tags.
Told you I've been busy! So what does that mean to you...lots of fun items to help you entertain and give as gifts, lots of fun blog posts for party ideas and hopefully Laurie Louis Designs coming to a store near you in January 2018. I know you don't want to miss out, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter. As a thank you, you will receive a 10% off coupon for your first order.
Happy Father's Day to all the great fathers out there and I can't wait to share some of the pictures from the shoot. Until then, check out our Instagram Feed and Story tonight for behind the scenes shots.
