Celebrating Graduation with Pear Tree Greetings {Review & Thank You Cards Giveaway}

Pear Tree Greetings{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Sharon!}

High school.

Good ol' high school.

I consider myself fortunate that I didn't have a negative experience as some people did, but there are of course aspects that I would go back and change if I could. I don't know about you, but there is a pretty decent list of What Was I Thinking? that comes to mind when I look back on quite a bit of my teenage years.

(I know I've said it before, Mom, but geez, I'm really sorry.)

But one thing that I know was a fun and positive time was graduation. After all of the work that was put into the previous 12+ years of schooling, it's about time to celebrate that accomplishment, isn't it? And one of the important aspects of graduation that goes along with donning a cap and gown and accepting a diploma has to be sharing the good news with family and friends.

So when your child is preparing to graduate, whether from preschool, kindergarten, high school or college, you can help them share their pride with the world by turning to Pear Tree Greetings for all of your graduation announcements and more.

graduation announcementsI really don't think you can go wrong with photo graduation announcements, because what better way to show off the happy celebrant than with a picture? But I really love the way that Pear Tree Greetings has such a wide variety of options from including a single favorite image to a series of them showing changes throughout the years.

When I was in high school the "thing to do" was to hand out fliers inviting people to your graduation open house and I know that the one I made paled in comparison to the beautiful samples that Pear Tree Greetings sent for me to look at.

graduation invitationsThe colors of each announcement are so bright and vivid and really, the possibilities are endless when it comes to finding just the right one for your graduate. Whether you are interested in elaborate and creative or simple and straightforward, the hardest part of shopping at Pear Tree Greetings has always been deciding on a favorite.

From the intricate and memory-filled On The Board invitation that uses an accordion style to grab attention to the classic All About Grad postcard that gets the point across (while saving money on postage!), I really enjoyed each of the high quality and durable cards that I received.

graduation postcardAnd even though I don't have a high school or college graduate just yet, I love the adorable options that Pear Tree Greetings has for the younger crowd as well. I have no doubt that Big Sister E would think it was really cool to send out announcements sharing in the excitement of completing a great year of preschool!

kids graduationThe Alphabet Bash and the Top of the Class kids' graduation cards are just such a fun way to pass on the good news or to invite people over for a picnic or afternoon in honor of this accomplishment. After all, it's important to celebrate preschool, kindergarten, and middle school so that kids will be excited to move on to bigger and better graduations, right?

Pear Tree Greetings doesn't just off the cutest selection of graduation announcements though, they also offer the matching accessoriesaddress labels to go with - graduation address labels, graduation thank you cards, and more. They even have a whole slew of graduation ideas to get you moving in the right direction over on the Pear Tree Greetings blog (I especially like all of the great graduation gift ideas, as that's always a tough one for me to come up with).

Do you have an upcoming graduation to celebrate this spring? Be sure to visit Pear Tree Greetings' promo code page for a discount on your invitations and announcements, as well as cards for Kids, Save the Dave, Birth Announcements, and more. As usual, Pear Tree Greetings has it all!

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to send out stylishly custom notes of appreciation to their friends and family, because...

Christina said...

Truthfully, my biggest thank you is to my children. I was lost and sad before I had them and have been the happiest I have ever been now that they are part of my life. I feel like my life now has meaning and joy.
