Eloisa On-The-Day

Hey there, beautiful!

Continuing our spotlight on the new on-the-day stationery sets, please allow me to introduce Eloisa.

“It’s as if someone knew my innermost desires, and shaped you only for me,”

―Eloisa James, A Gentleman Never Tells

If there’s one thing NYT bestselling novelist Eloisa James brings to mind, it’s romance. If there are two, then the second is probably Shakespeare. But the third has to be, for me at least, the deliciously pretty gowns her heroines tend to wear. This prettiness has inspired the “Eloisa” range, a confection of pink roses on a pale blue background, hand-finished with gold metallic detail. 

You can check out our entire range here, and don’t forget – we can change the colours free of charge to fit your theme – just contact us for a chat.

New: On-The-Day Stationery

It’s been a busy couple of weeks here at Giftast HQ, as we’ve been preparing for the launch of our matching on-the-day ranges, to compliment our wedding stationery selections. I’m so happy that we can now offer table plans, orders of service, place cards and table numbers to add some paper-based pretty to your wedding reception.

As always, we’ve used high quality paper printed with vegetable inks, and are still 100% committed to recycling all waste paper produced. Our entire range can be changed to colours which perfectly fit your theme for no extra cost – just contact us to find out more.

Featured today is our pretty, hand-finished Gemma range, seen here in grey and pink and complimented with silver detailing. You can check it out in more detail here.

We’ll be featuring a spotlight of all our other new ranges over the next few weeks, but if you just can’t wait, you can find all our new products here.

Wedding Season 2018

It’s wedding season!

On Sunday we had our first ever Wedding Fair at Healey House Hotel, and it was so much fun! It was great to meet the lovely brides-to-be and give out plenty of samples. If you want to order any samples you can check out our range by clicking the picture above or here

Don’t forget that we can alter the colour scheme of any of our designs to fit your theme, and matching on-the-day sets will be coming soon! 

If you like what you see but nothing fits your theme, please do get in touch as designs can be altered free of charge to fit your colour scheme, or new designs can be created especially for you for £200 plus product costs.

New: Julia Wedding Range

“And for the rest of the night, he couldn’t quite forget the smell of her perfume. Or maybe it was the soft sound of her chuckle. Or maybe it was neither of those things. Maybe it was just her.”
― Julia Quinn, It’s in His Kiss

Hey Julia! Look at you, so sophisticated and pretty.

I’ll bet Julia spends her free afternoons strolling in her gardens and clipping blossoms to drape artfully around the house.

Gorgeous grey-toned, soft colours coupled with a classic oval frame, and complimented by tiny watercolour blossoms. I am so in love with this collection, not least because of their pretty, hidden backs in a ditsy print which is what I imagine a sprigged muslin looks like, even though I’m pretty sure it’s wrong and should probably google it.

Get that spring feeling and order your sample pack here.

Kisses for the Mrs

Once the wedding is over, the confetti has settled, and the bride sets to changing her surname on everything, those heady, pre-wedding days of hen-partying, dress shopping and worrying about seating plans can seem like just a distant memory. Did she really walk around the town centre draped in phalluses? How many shots did she do from that butler-in-the-buff’s chest?

While some things may be best forgotten, the congregation of all her best friends and the most fun part of planning a wedding shouldn’t be! Remind your hen of the good time you all had with this diamante-studded print.

Your a4-sized print will arrive kiss-less for you and the rest of the hens to decorate. A fun keepsake, and one of the few parts of the hen do which can not only go on Facebook, but also on the wall of the newly-weds living room!

Treat your hen here!

Remember with Bling

After our wedding, once we’d returned from our mini-moon in Wales, and once all the laundry was done, I found myself wondering if we’d actually got married at all. I mean, there were photos, and people kept asking me what it was like to be married (just the same as before, LOL), but the actual wedding itself kind of felt like a dream I’d once had. Perhaps that was partly due to the massive hangover I’d battled through on the big day, but that post-wedding lull hits us all in one way or another.

Now, over six months in, it feels like we’ve been married forever. In a good way, of course. So when I think to myself, has it really been that long? all I have to do it look over to my commemorative print, and I am reminded anew.

Use for weddings, birthdays, christenings, first kisses, divorces! Anything you really, really want to remember deserves to be surrounded by roses and hand-finished with gold ink and diamante.

This print is photo-printed sized 7x5in and hand-finished to make it sparkle with bling. Frame not included, although if you like the grey, this one was from Wilkos.

Get yours here!

Not-So-Plain Jane

“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

Celebrate in style with our gorgeous range inspired by the queen of romance writing.

As someone who did her own wedding on a tight budget, I wanted to create a lower-priced range for brides who wanted something pretty and stylish, but without the associated costs. These invite packs are an extension of the “Jane” range, and come blank for you to write your own details in.

Dark blue on white is a timeless combination, and our soft watercolour sprigs over thick, textured paper make each invite look hand-painted.

Save the Dates, Invitations and RSVPs, are all available in packs of 10 and include white envelopes. Check them out here!

Eloisa has Blossomed

“It’s as if someone knew my innermost desires, and shaped you only for me,”

―Eloisa James, A Gentleman Never Tells

If there’s one thing NYT bestselling novelist Eloisa James brings to mind, it’s romance. If there are two, then the second is probably Shakespeare. But the third has to be, for me at least, the deliciously pretty gowns her heroines tend to wear. This prettiness has inspired the “Eloisa” range, a confection of pink roses on a pale blue background, hand-finished with gold metallic detail. Colours can be changed to suit your theme.

Meet Gemma

“Out of the way! We are in the throes of an exceptional emergency! This is no occasion for sport- there is lace at stake!” (Ms. Pole)

– Elizabeth Gaskell, Cranford

If you want subtly pretty stationery with a bit of lace, then the “Gemma” range may be the one for you. Lace is a given for a wedding. You’ve got your lace dress, your lace veil, and even your lacy you-know-whats, so why not finish the look with lacy stationery?

The range is hand-finished with metallic silver dots which really catch the light. Text is white and a contrasting pink, but this can be altered free of charge to suit your theme – please contact us for more information.

Could this be the one? Get your sample here, and find out.

New: The ‘Jane’ Wedding Collection

Meet our newest addition to the store, the ‘Jane’ Wedding collection. Understated yet stylish, ‘Jane’ is inspired by the queen of romance herself, Miss Austen.

Take yourself and your guests back to the most romantic of times, the Regency period. Sip tea from delicate porcelain cups while you chat about the latest en-dits. Use these to invite Charlotte and (if she must have a plus one) Mr Collins to the joint wedding you’re having with your sister as you each marry one of a pair of best friends. Even Lady Catherine won’t turn her nose up at this gorgeous set, featuring delicate watercolour sprigs printed on thick textured card stock. These invites look hand-painted – Lady Catherine doesn’t need to know you didn’t paint each one yourself!
