New Year, New Studio

2016 was a year of massive change and growth for The Social Page. As many of you know, after 25 years of retail, we closed the doors on our shopping space, mainly due to a 60% increase from the City of Calgary in property taxes. That, combined with slower foot traffic through the shop, meant we had to make some hard choices. So we choose to refocus our energy back where we started, back to what we love doing and what we do best and that’s making incredible invitation suites.

With closing our doors, how could that mark a year of growth for us? As professionals, it was a year of incredible gratitude. Gratitude for our loyal customers, for our corporate clients who continued to support a local business and for everyone in the Calgary wedding community who continued to do business with us, despite the uphill battles we were facing. Personally and professionally, we grew, as individuals and as a team.

Our new location is something we are most certainly celebrating this year. Warm, focused and quiet, our new space allows our award-winning designers and staff to have intimate one-on-one consultations with our clients with fewer distractions. Our new location has convenient free parking right outside our door and makes it possible to continue to offer the opportunity for clients and customers to purchase bulk paper and envelopments. It’s the perfect creative environment for us, and we are so excited to have welcomed so many people through our doors since we arrived in October.

While our design space may have changed, our online store has not! Filled to bring with everything you need to fill out the details of your party or wedding planning, we still offer hundreds of products to create the perfect event.

Our new space empowers us creatively and allows us to continue to focus on our passion and what we do best – creating award-winning Calgary wedding and event stationery.

Our Favourite Ways To Use Fairy Doors

We are so excited to be carrying Fairy Doors in the shop! What’s a Fairy Door you ask? Only the cutest little piece of decor you might have caught a glimpse of out of the corner of your eye. Fairy Doors are small, whimsical doors that you snuggle into existing spaces in or outside your home – places like your garden, your decor, even cakes and pasties if you like! Think of them little mini hobbit doors – the shape and design of Fairy Tales immediately takes your imagination somewhere magical and special.

In the shop, we’re carrying a whole host of Fairy Door kits – from simple doors with doorframe to entire outdoor living spaces (think clean laundry, lanterns and other trinkets). Here are some fun ways we’ve seen people use Fairy Doors, straight from our favourite social media platform – Pinterest!

Tree Trunks

One of the most popular spots to put a Fairy Door, tree trunks become front yards for Fairies as you spruce up the landscaping with rocks, moss, flowers and other natural decor.

Tree Stumps

Tree stumps become fairy and elf mansions when you attach a Fairy Door to them. Basically – this is your chance to build your dream home without budget or second opinions spoiling your fun!

Garden Planters

The easiest place to build out a fairy house is in a garden planter. Attach your Fairy Door to either the base of the planter or tuck it into the flower bed itself to create the illusion of a home amongst the greenery.

Baseboards

Almost like a mouse door, tucking a Fairy Door in an inconspicuous corner of your house will give little guests goosebumps and butterflies at the thought of what’s happening behind the walls.

Telephone Poles

This Fairy Door attached to a telephone pole, as soon on Apartment Therapy, adds a ton of whimsy to this downtown New York street. Actually, check out this entire post for some fun ideas!

Top 5 Summer Drink Recipes We Want To Try!

While it’s been a May of funny weather (ok though, when isn’t May filled with funny weather?!), summer is almost here. We can feel it in our bones and our hearts – we’ve got our maxi dresses and sunglasses and wide brim hats ready to become our daily wardrobe staples! One of our favourite parts about summer is relaxing with a cool drink on a hot patio – such an idyllic way to spend an afternoon, right? But while we love a good white wine spritzer as much as the next gal, it’s always fun to try new things! So here’s a round up of 5 summer drink recipes we want to try (sooner rather than later!) – click on the images to check out the recipes!

Blueberry Mojitos Because blueberries are a super food and it’s important that we get more of them in our diet.
