About Palm Beach Parties

Palm Beach Parties® is where preppy meets modern. It’s where nostalgia of Ohio farms meets the breeze of a Florida shoreline.

Meet Carla

Hi there! I’m Carla Thomas, the designer behind Palm Beach Parties®. I’m a small town girl who grew up riding my bike through cornfields and dreaming of bright colors. I traded my cornfield landscape for the Florida beaches in college, where I majored in business, fell in love with design, and found my true passion. I’m more than a designer, I’m Ava & Ella’s mommy, and am totally smitten.

Palm Beach Parties launched the Summer of 2011, while on a six-week recovery from a cervical spinal fusion and decompression surgery and planning my daughter’s third birthday. My recovery was the perfect opportunity to blend my love for luxurious paper goods, gorgeous typeset and perfect Pantone colors.

I believe color can make anyone happy, pretty patterns are fun, and a monogram is always in style! Palm Beach Parties is about bringing a bit of Palm Beach to your everyday life. Celebrate the simple pleasures of notecards tucked inside of lunch boxes and letters to teachers written on a gorgeously colored personalized notepad. Celebrate having our morning coffee (or in my case green tea) in our signature monogrammed mugs, and putting down our cell phones so that we can admire our trendy cases while we grasp what really matters. Life is a party, and should be celebrated with the simple things that make your life a little brighter.

So grab your favorite drink (and mug), sit back and enjoy browsing the shop. Have an idea in mind and don’t see it listed, let me know, I’d be happy to create a custom design just for you that is perfectly Palm Beach.
