Paiges Of Style {Tuesday Giveaway} & {Preferred Sponsor Spotlight}

VERY excited to introduce you to Paiges of Style, "a little bit preppy, a little bit modern, with a whole lot of style" printables company that is one of our beloved preferred sponsors.


Today, you will have a chance to get to know more about Paige, AND enter to win a fabulous $50 gift certificate to her shop {giveaway at end of post}.



{Question} Tell us a little bit about Paiges of Style...what was the spark that started it all, and how did you get to where you are now?



{Answer} Paiges of Style is an online etsy shoppe featuring party printables to celebrate both children's and adult parties. I think my style is most accurately described as "a little bit preppy, a little bit modern and a whole lotta style." I just opened my shoppe in August so there is still a lot of growing to do but I'm so excited to share what is currently in the works.





{Question} You offer a wide range of printables. Can you give us any hints of new products to come in your shop?


{Answer} I am SO excited about my new holiday collection that I just debuted last week and have been so thrilled to hear how happy my customers are with the items. I have been working on so many custom parties that I can't wait to share including a VERY colorful and modern girls birthday tea party as well as a fun Parisian "let them eat cake" themed party perfect of girls or women.





{Question} I know it is HARD, but if you had to select your three favorite products in your shop, what would they be? Any reason you are partial to any of them?


{Answer} I am just so excited for the holidays this year so I would have to say the holiday printables collection. I am also in LOVE with the rainbow birthday party collection, it is just so fun and colorful for both girls and boys. And, I think the chandelier collection is so chic. I designed for a girlfriend's 30th birthday party and it looked so stylish.





{Question} What inspires you and your designs?

{Answer} I wanted to design party goods that were sweet and stylish without the cutesiness. I'm so inspired by the fabulous Amy Atlas and have always had a soft spot for a Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. Lately, I haven't been able to get enough of Pinterest, I could get lost on that site for days.





{Question} Let's get to know you a little better:
Your Favorite Color- Pink & Green or Red & Black (But definitely not all together)


Your Favorite Dessert- Strawberry Shortcake with fresh whipped cream


Your Favorite Thanksgiving Dish- My grandma's Swiss Beans, INCREDIBLE!!! Think green beans, swiss cheese and sour cream, yum! See my blog for the recipe.


Your Favorite Places To Shop (Brick & Mortar)- J Crew, Anthropologie, Homegoods, Target and the Rose Bowl Flea Market when I can escape up to LA.

Your Favorite Places To Shop (Online) Etsy, of course! More specifically, I am loving Potter and Butler. I can't wait to use their cake pom pom bunting. I don't shop online as much as I blog stalk. I currently love Somewhere Splendid, My Bride Story and always check out the new issue of Lonny Magazine.

Your Personal Style Icons- I've always loved Jackie Kennedy. My mom, sister and I traveled to Boston just to see her dress on display at the JFK Library after I got engaged, it was gorgeous and so worth the trip!





{Question} How would you describe your style--in terms of interior decorating, clothing?

{Answer} Funny you should ask that because my "real" job is actually being an interior designer. I would say my style for both interiors and clothes is a mix between traditional and eclectic. I love the use of bright pops of color in accessories layered over a neutral palette.





{Question} What do you love most about Paiges of Style, and what is has brought to your life thus far?

{Answer} I love knowing that I have helped make my client's events special. And mostly, I love that I have new friends all over the country and world. I swear I have met my long lost best friend through doing a custom party for a client, our daughter's even have the same name!




{Question} What are your future goals for Paiges of Style?

{Answer} My goals are to continue adding more and more items to my shoppe. I would love if it your readers would drop me a note suggesting some themes they would love to see.




{Question} How do you manage to find a balance between home and work, keeping your priorities in order?

{Answer} This is the million dollar question and I am so far from having this perfected. I have two babies under two so my time designing is mainly in the evening. When I get buried in my computer, I just have to remind myself what really counts. I ALWAYS meet my deadlines but have to remember that a new collection or blog post can wait and my babies and husband are my priorities.




{Question} Any advice you can offer in terms of selecting the right holiday card to match a photo?

{Answer} I think it's important to use a holiday card that focuses closely in on the people in the photo. Make sure your friends and family can see your faces clearly and try to eliminate distractions. In other words, don't use a picture that focuses on the beach behind you or the scenery of your vacation. People want to see you and how much your kids have grown up in the past year. And please don't wear sunglasses in your picture :)




{Question} Your cards, invitations and other printables are darling! What is your turnaround time during the holidays?

{Answer} I allow myself a 4 day turnaround time but so far I haven't gone past a 2 day turnaround. Also, I am happy to rush items if I know there is a deadline.


{Question} Last one....do you take custom orders?

I sure do and those have actually been some of my favorite projects. The beautiful and sophisticated peacock collection started as a custom order.

I have two parties to plan in the future. My daughter's second birthday will be My Lil' Cupcake so I would like to see some cute cupcake invitations. The second party is my niece's baby shower, the theme is not decided yet but it will be something with pink. So maybe some Pretty in Pink toppers?
