ElizabethHello! I’m Elizabeth and I’d like to welcome you to Simply Swanky.

I love a great party – don’t we all? But with 3 kids and a business to run, I don’t have endless hours to obsess over every detail. That’s where Simply Swanky comes in. It’s a place where we discuss party ideas & inspiration, and feature some great DIY projects and recipes. A swanky party doesn’t have to cost a fortune or keep you busy for weeks getting ready – it just takes inspiration and a few nudges in the right direction.

So who am I? I am the owner/designer at Swanky Press, an online invitation and stationery shop. I am married to my college sweetheart, Brad, and have 3 awesome kids. I started out my career as an nuclear and environmental engineer (yup…you read that right). After staying home with my kids for a few years, I changed career paths and opened Swanky Press. What started out as a fun hobby business has grown beyond any of my expectations into a busy, bustling shop. We’re expanding more quickly than expected, and loving every crazy, chaotic minute of it.

So, if you want some party inspiration, read on. If you have questions about hosting your event, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll do our best to help out. Or, if you have a party you’ve thrown or a craft tutorial you’d love to share, please let us know! We’d love to feature some of your amazing ideas on Simply Swanky.
