PartyIdeaPros talks a lot about creating meaningful, beautiful, festive celebrations but what you may not realize is that we are also very very practical in our approach to life. We hate waste. We are generally pretty darn frugal, and nothing makes us do a double take quicker than a product that can be used in multiple ways. So this month, as so many of you prepare to go back to school, whether as a student or as an educator, we will be searching for those little things that not only look good but give you lots of options. As always, our first stop >> Stella & Dot's Newest Arrivals. Not surprisingly, Stella & Dot did not disappoint. We believe they have this year's must have back to school tote! Continue Reading →
Celebrate & Support Women's Causes
This week Hillary Clinton made history. She became the first woman to accept a major national political party's nomination for President of the United States. Whether you agree with her politics, or not, this is a milestone in women's history and can and should be celebrated. How, you ask? We think the very best way to embrace the moment is to celebrate the women in your life and to support women's causes.
And yes, we are absolutely obsessed with PuraVida Bracelets but not just because they are adorable and affordable, but because you can party pretty, all day and into the night, AND add meaning to your celebration. Part of the proceeds from the sale of all of these bracelets go towards benefiting important women's causes. Additionally, every time you wear them, you help spread awareness of the issues affecting hundreds of thousands of women around the world. In a small way, you become an ambassador for the cause.

This week has the potential of being a profoundly spiritual week for millions of people across America. Not only did Jews across the world celebrate Yom Kippur, a day of atonement and repentance, a day reflection and meditation, Pope Francis landed in Washington, D.C and immediately began sharing his message of love for all. Today we sincerely hope that the Pope's message will remind us all, no matter our personal religious faith or affiliation, to find the courage to make our lives a blessing, today and everyday.
