About cathyswraps

On Etsy since 2007

I believe celebrations should be fun, pretty and easy!

Hello, my name is Cathy and I’m the designer of CathysWraps Wedding & Party Vases. I make vases, pew clips and adorable "tea cup" cupcake wraps for weddings and parties.

In all started in the mid 80’s when my mother Dolores, fondly known as Doey, invented a pew clip to secure ribbons, bows and flowers to church pews to replace the use of damaging wire and tape.

While my mother enjoys much success with her pew clips for bows, she had developed an oversupply of the flower pots that adapt to hang with her pew clips. The idea to save brides money by reusing wedding aisle flowers at the reception is brilliant, the pots just needed a face lift. That's where I come in.

As a graphic designer, I toyed with ways to bring beauty to these pots and set out to create a stylish decorative sleeve. As luck would have it, I found a stash of eco-friendly post consumer waste paper and had it printed locally with my original pen and ink illustrations enabling us to continue our philosophy of being practical, kind to the environment and be fun.

What began as an intention to create something fresh and useful continues to evolve as our customers bring their own creativity to our products. Our tea cup cupcake wrap is an example of fulfilling a customer's wish and create something new!

We always welcome suggestions, so please share your ideas and we’ll do our best to incorporate them.

Thank you!
