Especially with its position right in the middle of summer, we are often so preoccupied with our own plans to really give Dad the celebration he deserves. Make this year different with one of these unique Father's Day gifts that shows that father figure in your life how much you care.

Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see the fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY. Continue Reading →

Well this year, PartyIdeaPros finally got our act together enough to plan in advance for the holiday card season. We contacted some of our favorite merchants so we could actually touch and feel the cards ourselves. Yes, we admit it — we are ridiculously touchy feely types. Our trash cans are filled with not so cheap cards printed on flimsy paper with fuzzy photos and illegible print. On the other hand, our sample books are chock full of Minted cards and invitations. We love their clear graphics and beautiful eco-friendly papers. This year's Christmas and Hanukkah card trends include rounded corners, back designs, ornament cards, lots and lots of foil an glitter, and are chock full of images of winter greenery.

For the last eight years we have been promoting both Tiny Prints and Minted and a handful of other holiday card merchants. Although we were amongst Tiny Prints early advocates, truthfully, we are a bit over them. This week, as we went back through our files reviewing all the holiday cards we received last year, we realized the cards that stood out were the ones from Minted! The paper was better, the printing was better, and the designs were way more interesting. So this year before you place your usual order, we highly recommend you take a second look at Minted.
Minted has a well curated selection of holiday cards to meet any style. They of course offer their highly acclaimed original holiday cards, but also offer Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards, Letterpress Holiday Cards and more.
