Christmas is Here! Let the Countdown Begin! December 01 2016

And its officially December and I have heard my first " if I dont see you, Happy Christmas" today. So the season is upon us and here at Papier Prints we are the biggest fans of the weeks ahead- mince pies, mulled wine, slippers and the smell of a real Christmas trees. And presents under the tree.

We think we have some amazing family gifts this year with guaranteed Christmas delivery for orders placed by December 14th.  All our framed and mounted prints are the highest quality and arrived ready gift-wrapped and ready to give. And what especially nice is that each print is handmade in Ireland and  just for you. 

For families we recommend: The Little Birdies Print: This is an especially nice gift for families who have added a little one to the family nest in 2016!

For new babies we recommend our  "Dream Big, Little One" prints, a beautiful dream like print that will look wonderful in any baby's nursery.

Eat, Drink & Be Married! May 14 2016

With warmer days and summer skies, wedding season 2016 in Ireland is already under way.  And there is nothing more genuinely heart-warming than the excuse to get sentimental, mushy, drink champagne and dance the night away at the marriage of close friends and family. These are the days that we live for, that memories are made of.

 Personalised Wedding Present- A Personalised Wedding Print Irish Designed and made


Now with many Irish couples choosing a monetary gift, as it often simply makes more sense, we can be left with the feeling that we want to do something a little more personal for the couple. Cold hard cash, can feel, well, just a bit cold somehow, no matter how generous a gift. A personalised wedding print is a perfect token for the couple on the day, and is a gorgeous small additional gift or afters gift to show a couple how much you care! Take a look at our wedding print selection below, each Irish designed and made. We can gift-wrap and ship with a personalised note to Ireland, the UK or further afield on request!

Let Them Eat Cake! Christening Cake & First Birthday Cake that is... April 25 2016

Christenings, Naming Days, Baptisms and First Birthdays are often the most memorable and milestone days in babys' early life. Choosing a cake that befits both the little person and the event can be a big task! As an avid cake fan (who has just spent a weekend surrounded by cakes as it was my daughters birthday) I thought I'd round up some of my absolute favourite cake makers in Ireland.

If you are looking for elegant, show-stopping cakes with amazing design and mouthwatering flavours, look no further that these! For years it seemed that the most amazing cake making was happening stateside but in the last five years especially, Ireland has seen a growth in truly creative, artisan cake-makers focused on producing oh-so stylish cakes! Lucky us! 

Artful Bakery 

These cakes are genuinely the most artistic I have come across in Ireland. I just LOVE their Exquisite detail, amazing craft and the fact that they are made in Kilkenny! Certainly worth the trip. See: https://www.facebook.com/ArtfulBakery/

Snowdrops, Daffodils & Spring Babies! February 15 2016

Spring finally feels like it has arrived. Between the hail showers, constant rain and occasional ray of sunshine, the snowdrops and daffodils have arrived in our garden, and I have to say, it fills my heart with joy. Our tulips are peeping up, but not sign of a flower yet. As the days get a little brighter and longer, this is a great time for new mom's with winter babies to begin to get out and about more, for some fresh air, with baby snuggly wrapped up. It feels as if winter might just be slipping a little away and that a new year is really unfolding now. And shortly the Christening season is upon us, and lots of beautiful springtime babies are arriving to delighted mom's and dads. This is really a beautiful time of year to be born.
