Our Story

Hey there! I'm Maddie, the Owner and Designer at Elf Made Easy (formerly Fête Box). For the last several years I have enjoyed creating custom stationery and invitations for clients all over the US based out of my studio in Kansas City. It just so happens my Husband John and I also love to host awesome and elaborate parties at our home. While brainstorming a way to make beautiful parties easy and accessible to hosts/hostesses everywhere, I came upon the concept behind Fête Box. Being lucky enough to have a professional art background, I have the skills to take any party concept and turn it into a tangible operating event; And as a Mom, friend, and modern woman, I understand the desire to throw awesome parties for our children, friends, co-workers (anyone!) without slaving over craft tables and inspiration websites for hours. As time has gone on, my vision for Fête Box has grown and changed. Today, we focus solely on our best selling product--- the Elf Made Easy box. 

Design & Quality

One of the most valuable qualities that Elf Made Easy offers is the ability to create a product that cannot be found anywhere else. Each Elf Made Easy is designed and curated as if it were created for our own family. We think you will find that the attention to detail and quality stands out above the crowd. Over the years we've had others attempt to imitate this product, but we remain the originators of the Elf Made Easy box. That's a real testament to the quality of our product, service, and brand.

WHAT DOES FêTE MEAN?

Fête (pronounced fℰt) simply means party in French. Our Founder, Maddie, studied French for several years (and nearly minored in the language during College!) and drew inspiration from the language when developing the Fête Box brand. She thought the ring of "Fête Box" was just perfect, elegant, and unique.

Handmade + Sustainable

Mother Earth is important to us. Here are a few fun facts about our process and the environment:

  1. As many paper items as possible are designed in-house, then printed, cut, packaged, and shipped all by Elf Made Easy!
  2. 100% Recycled (and is manufactured from windmill power) paper cardstock is used for nearly all of our work. How awesome is that!
  3. Handmade does not mean quality is sacrificed. In fact, we strive to make every item in our Elf Made Easy with an extraordinary level of attention to detail.
  4. Our Elf Made Easy boxes are assembled by us, and each item is hand picked by our Founder, Maddie. If we wouldn't use it, we wouldn't expect you to either.
