I decided I was going to make the trek from Staten Island, to Forest Hills after falling in love with an invite Petite-Fete did for a colleague. I was clueless re: invitations. I know what I like when I see it. Possibilities are many but PF was able to help narrow down my taste ASAP. Claude showed me samples I would be interested in & eliminated others. I became a “professional” under Claude’s lesson on cardstock, letter & foil pressing. I wanted my invites to be memorable & fun but still maintain an up-scale CLASS. They were EXACTLY that. I did not have a TON of $ to spend BUT figured this is my WEDDING. This is the fanciest party I will ever have. When you tell someone good news, you don’t frown and whisper! You are proud & you better make the best possible delivery of your special news! If you are willing to splurge a bit on your invites (& you SHOULD) you need to go see Claude @ Petite-Fete. She will make time for you. She will listen to your ideas & explain them in "invitation-ese". She can provide options for cutting costs (I went from a 2-ply cardstock to a 1-ply & saved significantly). She is quick & technologically savvy. The day I rec’d my invites, I looked @ them & literally cried. This is huge. If your invites are everything you’ve ever dreamed, this is a pivotal moment of excitement/joy for you. If you do not use PF=fine, though you should at least make an appointment so you understand the difference bet. LOVING & settling. Make a day of it, Forest Hills is adorable. You will be pumped to work with PF. Claude is young but professional & knows the things that look good TODAY. Many invites I have rec’d recently SCREAM: “my-big-fat-[nationality]” mother did these. YUCK! Your invite should be YOU! Fancy script on an ugly card is going to impress NO ONE. I have my invite in a beautiful shadow box hanging in my apartment. All my guests say: “D, these really were the most beautiful invitations.” I agree & that has made it ALL worth it!

I LOVED every minute of working with Claude! Her creativity and professionalism was top notched. I have used Fete & Paperie for many years ( for both my kids baptism, birthday, communions) & without hesitation, I asked her to work on my sister's wedding, this past August. She designed the Save the Date, Bridal Shower invitations (she even had a poster made of the invitation for the shower) & the wedding invitations. She was very patient & flexible with the different changes my sister and I had throughout, and the overall final products were exemplary. I also recommended her to another friend for her wedding & she was very pleased!! If you are looking for personal care and service, unique designs and excellent quality invitations (at a fair cost), look no further!Sent on 09/25/2018

I had no idea how impactful this was going to be to our destination wedding. What I learned, was that proper invitations set the tone for the event and these were next level. The feedback we received from guests was overwhelming. We received daily texts and phone calls from friends and family expressing their blown-awayedness by our save-the-dates and invites and how excited they were to come. This generated such an awesome buzz amongst the guests and in turn got my husband and I more excited and fueled the growing energy for the months leading up to our wedding. That's what I can say about the end result. The process was just as awesome. Claude was so easy to work with. She took the raw ideas from our heads and crafted true masterpieces. If you want something special, different, and memorable for your guests and more importantly for you... this is it. Thank you Claude / Fete and Paperie.Sent on 09/16/2018
