2019 Holiday Card Trends
It is not too early to order your 2018 Holiday Cards! There are so many holiday cards from which to choose, so where to begin? 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. And of course, classic design and colors never go out of style.

We just came across this post, Switch Witch ? The Solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy, from our friends over at MomMeMatch (the site that has put together by far the best collection of family matching Christmas pajamas we have seen to date). They tracked down the Switch Witch, featured on Shark Tank a few years back, and although the proprietors did not get a deal, they remind us that the Switch Witch is still a fun solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy. Best yet, we just checked and the Switch Witch is available with the Amazon Prime One Day Shipping option so you can still get it delivered to your doorstep in time for Halloween! Continue Reading →
At this time of year, we are all about ghoulish green here at PartyIdeaPros. Today, however, the green we are referring to is the eco-friendly kind. We bring our own bags wherever we shop. And we always highly recommended gifting re-usable totes filled with goodies as welcome bags for your out of town guests. So we did not think it was over the top crazy when we happened upon MomMeMatch‘s suggestion of using Halloween to create a new family tradition of matching re-usable trick-or-treat bags like so many families do with Christmas stockings.
The whole notion of families pulling out their matching family trick-or-treat bags each Halloween and taking an annual family Halloween photo is just #toocute for words especially if you are all dressed in Mommy, Daddy & Me Matching Halloween Costumes. Plus, even if you do not buy in to the whole matching family thing, investing in cute re-usable Halloween trick-or treat bags will model eco-friendly behavior for your children. Continue Reading →

Patriotic Nail Art
Did you know tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day? To get into the spirit we turned to our friends over at Julep. Sometimes we want to party pretty without looking like a walking American flag. So we dress in a solid, usually reds, whites or blues and then add some patriotic nail art to make a classic Americana look pop. We are loving Julep's fun patriotic nail art inspiration that is perfect for both Flag Day and the 4th of July and for that matter any other patriotic holiday!
Take a look at these pictures for ideas on how to pretty your nails for the upcoming holidays. What is even better is that Julep is offering a free Star Spangled 8-piece gift when you join Julep Beauty Box. This includes four patriotic polishes, a hot pink lip gloss, a peony pink blush stick, a bronze eyeliner, and white chevron nail decals. A $122 value FOR FREE! Use the promo code FIREWORKS from now until July 5th! Continue Reading →
