A Christmas Home Tour OVERFLOWING with easy and beautiful ideas for holiday decorations. Love these simple & glam Christmas ideas that are perfect for stylish families!

I wish I had a legitimate excuse for always ordering my Christmas cards late, but I don’t. I mean, EVERYONE is busy. But even my busy friends still seem to get their cards in the mail on time. Let’s face it, I’ll probably always be a last minute Christmas card sender. It’s not that I love my friends and family any less (in fact, I probably love them more than they know), but I’m always waiting for the ‘perfect’ photo. And the ‘perfect’ stamps. And the ‘perfect’ time to sit down and put them together. Of course, as I should know by now, ‘perfect’ never means what I think it does– even a lopsided holiday photo is ‘perfect’ if it arrives in my friend’s mailboxes before Valentine’s Day!

This is my fourth year getting cards from Pear Tree Greetings, and I can always tell when I’m holding one of their cards in my hand: quality printing, real gold foil, and a certain weight that screams ‘quality’.  I love their modern yet classic designs and memorable holiday photo cards. Their motto is that their cards are ‘keep-worthy’, and to prove their point, check out my workspace: our card from last year still hangs on my huge bulletin board, as it makes my heart sing each time I look up at it. Frozen moments in time, the kids have changed so much and yet so little.

I’m a total Christmas newsletter dork, I don’t write them, but I loooooooove to get them! This card provides the best of both worlds (please someone get his one and send me a copy!):

Amazingly, I quickly chose a card but then couldn’t decide whether to order them in color or black & white (it’s blurry only because I took a screenshot in preview mode, I’ll share the final product here and on Instagram when they arrive!):

Thankfully my pals on Facebook gave their unanimous choice.

Click, order, DONE.

I may be a last minute Christmas card sender, but they’re already printed and on their way to me now. I may just get them in the mailbox before the 25th this year. If I don’t, blame it solidly on ME, not the printer, okay? These puppies are scheduled to arrive well before Christmas.

Anyone else still need to order your cards? Don’t fret, Pear Tree has you covered!

Disclosure: Many thanks to Pear Tree Greetings for providing our Christmas cards this year in exchange for this review.

  1. Gorgeous card — and the design is nice, too 😉

    I just picked up my cards yesterday and am trying to find the time to address them now!

  2. Those are beautiful cards! My Christmas cards won’t be sent out until January this year. My son is coming home from Bahrain on Dec. 30th so I wanted to wait and get a photo card with him included. He’s missed the last 2 Christmases so it’s kind of a big deal to us. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. I love your card! These are really cute cards. I’m going to have to take a look at them for next year. I’m usually a late card sender too, but I managed to get mine out somewhat on time this year.

  4. What beautiful cards! I’m woefully late at ordering cards this year – thanks for the reminder!

  5. I really need to order ours immediately, don’t I? : )

    Your cards are going to be awesome! Merry Christmas, Carrie.

  6. I have never heard of this company before! I need to check them out! These cards are gorgeous!

  7. Yea, I got tired of the insanity of putting them in the night before they were do, and missing Hanukkah for my Jewish friends EVERY single year. I love cards but they don’t love me, lol!

  8. Love the card styles – so visual and yet simple. I haven’t done mine yet either. I may end up doing them over Christmas break as a Welcome to the New Year card.

  9. Love these. I already have my cards for this year, but pinning this for next.
