A Recipe for a helium Holiday!

When we sat down to plan this year’s holiday card, it seems, we were really hungry. Actually, what are we thinking? We’re always hungry.

When early November came around we knew we had to start brainstorming on how to top the previous year’s holiday card. As Kelly, Enid, and Amanda started to throw out ideas, they always came back to one concept: family holiday traditions. It doesn’t come as a surprise that food is a big part of what we all look forward to during the holiday season. The idea of a tin jar with weathered recipe cards passed down from grandma is the visual Kelly, Enid, and Amanda presented to Chris and Ryan…over lunch.

During a #heliumteam lunch, at a yummy Greek restaurant across the street from our branding agency, we shared ideas on how to give recipe cards a modern holiday twist and how they could be presented in a USPS mail-friendly package. And so, our holiday card idea was born // a recipe for a helium holiday!

yay for the holiday!

The helium team has a confession to make this holiday season. We’re in love – with our holiday card. This is true love. The kind that makes you giddy and fluttery just by laying eyes on the object of your affection. We just can’t stop looking at our own holiday cards!


For 2016, we decided we’d dedicate our holiday card to a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts – our non-profit dedicated bringing art education back into the classroom, helium inspires. We wanted to share with our community just how cool helium inspires is and give them a token of inspiration by introducing the helium inspires coin project – a project dedicated to showing how inspiration is contagious.
