Over the weekend we celebrated the life of my husband’s sweet, 95 year old grandmother with a 1920’s themed brunch. Family traveled near and far and everyone adorned festive attire to match the theme. There were a wide array of sequins, feathers, and flowy dresses with headpieces to match…even the babies came dressed to party. But what do you get someone who’s been through it all and had it all? I wanted to do something special and create a lasting photo book that encompassed some of her fondest memories.
This conversation is written in partnership with Shutterfly. All opinions are my alone. Please refer to my Disclosure page for more information.
Several family members gathered photos for me and using Shutterfly’s Make My Book service really made this book come to life so easily. To get started, you select your book size (I opted for the 11×14) and book style. There are several styles to choose from including more modern white styles, wedding themes, holidays, and everyday moments. One way this service saves you time is that you can upload an entire batch of photos and let a Shutterfly designer choose the best photos and remove any duplicates. However, if you want all your photos used you have that option as well. You can add as little as 60 photos and up to 800! I’m a trigger happy person so this feature excites me! In about 3 days, Shutterfly will notify you that your photo book is available for viewing. You can approve it and order immediately or request changes to be made. I loved this book instantly and the ease of the service! As a busy mom, being able to dump my every day photos or vacation photos in for someone else to create a lasting photo book is really just so helpful.
I need to take a minute and brag about Shutterfly customer service as well. I had several questions throughout the process and they were on top of it all – super nice and so helpful in their responses.
You can try this service risk free. If you love the book that’s created for you, a designer fee of $9.99 will be added to your order. (Completely worth it in my opinion) Current promotions: 40% off EVERYTHING with code YIPPEE.
If you’re a new customer, grab this special deal for a FREE 8×8 photo book.
And now for an explosion of party photos! Everyone looked so wonderful! Brunch was held at a beautiful location – Old & New Outdoor Events. Seriously if you’re in the Tampa Bay area you must check them out for your party needs. We also attended a wedding there and it was absolutely beautiful.
