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


The Simply Swanky blog is for people who love to entertain, but, like me, have limited free time.  With a houseful of kids and a business to run, I don’t have endless hours to obsess over party details.  At the same time, I love a pulled together event.  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/lead 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.  Swanky Press grew quickly, thanks to our amazing clients, and we’re now a team focused of fresh design, fabulous products, and customization to suit each client’s sense of style.

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 or tutorial you’d love to share, please let us know! We’d love to feature some of your amazing ideas on Simply Swanky.
