free printables for summer!

the-celebration-shoppe-in-mom-magazine-backyard-bbq-cover

I mentioned in last Wednesday’s post that there is a real buzz around here in anticipation of getting our hands on the July-September issue of Mom magazine. I’m so excited to say that I styled a backyard bbq for the issue at the request of the fabulous Natalie Klein of Hot Moms Club! Well I don’t have a high res file of the full article yet (and it’s already out), but I did get my hot little hands on the cover and a low res (that’s why the article is so small here)! I should be getting the full article very soon and I will definately post it so you can read every word! {wink} UPDATE: Full article and more pics!

In the meantime, I don’t want to give it all away by showing you the images used in the article, but I will show you these tight shots of the printables that I used to style the shoot. I chose a variety of patterns all in primary colors so they can be perfect for the fourth and all summer long!

Here’s a closer shot of the straw slips I used, which can also be perfect as toothpick skewers in sandwiches, etc.,

the napkin rings, and

the placecards, which can also work great as favor tags.

And since I love giving things to my friends: those who read my blog, follow me on twitter and friend me (like me) on facebook, I’m giving these to you!  I’ve posted a download link to these freebies on facebook and I’ll be tweeting the link for several days to come. We’ll also be sending e-mails this week to everyone who has purchased from us in the past and is signed up to receive “special offers” (box in the upper right corner). And if you’re new here, please come join me on facebook, twitter, or sign up for offers so you don’t miss out on future freebies!

I hope you have a wonderful week and that you swing back by to read the full article!
