Best Hanukkah Party Invitations

I really can't believe it, today we received our first Hanukkah party invitation of the season and it is only mid October.  Here's the kicker – we are already booked!   The fact is that this year (2013) Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving and if you are even thinking about having a party, you really need to send out the invitations ASAP!  Hanna is going to be so disappointed since we have attended her party every year for the last 2 decades but have 30 out of town guests expecting to be entertained that weekend. We highly recommend asking around to see if maybe this year you are better off hosting your Hanukkah holiday party on Sunday early evening rather than Saturday night.  My gut is that you will have significantly fewer conflicts.

Update >> Chanukah 2018

This year Hanukkah begins on Sunday, December 2 and ends the December 10. This means that we only have one weekend this year to host our Hanukkah parties this year so be sure to get your invitations out early before someone else books the Saturday night or Sunday.

The featured invitations are still among our favorites but there a few new Chanukah party invitations this year we want to add to our list of Best Hanukkah Party Invitations Continue Reading →

Best Ways to To Share The Big Engagement News

Best Ways to To Share The Big Engagement News

We are loving Wedding Paper Divas' video blogs. On this week's Small Talk Big Day, Amber gives advice for all those who are newly engaged! It’s hard to keep the fun news a secret, but Wedding Paper Divas' expert lends some thoughtful tips and ways to properly announce and share the big engagement news to everyone. We are loving this advice!

  • Be sensitive >> This will be one of the biggest moments in your life! Before you tell your entire circle about the big news, make sure you and your partner tell your closest friends and family first. (PIP echoes this advice — SO SO TRUE!)
  • Stay off social media >> As you call your parents, siblings, grandparents, best friends, and so on, make sure you tell them to keep the news a secret. They should not be allowed to Tweet about it, before you get to!
  • Make it count >> Once you find the right time to let the world know about your engagement, take pictures of just the two of you. Your sweet announcement should not become a Facebook image gallery of your engagement ring. Keep it classy!

Along with the video's release, Wedding Paper Divas is now offering 15% off save the date orders or 20% off orders of $99 using the code SAVESEP20 at checkout (valid thru 9/29/15).  You have lots of choices >> share the big engagement news on classic flat cards, postcards, magnets, and now even on festive coasters.  Here are a few of our favorites:
