This afternoon, as we were talking to our 85 year old grandmother about the logistics of keeping a small dog in her urban apartment, we had an aha moment. When asked how she was planning to potty train her new dog and deal with after dark “walks”, she said she had heard of attractive, affordable environmentally-friendly dog grass patches. This way her new pup could “go” whenever she wanted – day or night, rain or shine. Grandma was right, as usual. DoggieLawn actually delivers an indoor doggy potty right to her front door. Now that she has convinced us she can handle a tiny companion, she just has to convince one of the doggie adoption agencies to approve her application. Continue Reading →

If you have been put in charge of hosting this year’s playoff games or Super Bowl parties, or any football themed party, having the right mix of food, entertainment, and company will keep the party flowing in between passes and touchdowns. For the entertainment >> think printable football games!
While typically during any “Bowl” party, most guests will be focused on the football game, there will always be commercial breaks and half-times when your guests may prefer to stretch and take a break from watching tv. And there are always a few guests who come for the food (and the company) rather than the game itself. So it never hurts to have alternative entertainment, like printable football games, readily available. Plus, you can literally purchase and print them out 5 minutes before the party starts.
If children are invited to the party, they may not want to watch an entire 3 hour football game. Having a fun game option for them, like a pin the football game or a football themed photo booth will give them a break and give them a chance to just be kids. Plus, recruiting the adults, blindfolding them, and making them pin the football on the quarterback would most likely be worthy of a snapchat or insta-story, too.
And for the grown-ups, even if you don’t have a designated time at the party to play games, you could always set out a few trivia themed printable football games. Make sure your friends know that prizes will be awarded to the guest who gets the most answers correct by the end of the televised game. This will encourage some fun competition during the party. And who doesn’t love the chance to win a prize?

We cannot think of better Disney Pixar Cars party favors for a boys slumber party than Cars themed pajamas. We have found so many pj options, that on any given day you are certain to find a pair or two on sale.

Loving these children's summer camp essentials and ideas from Minted! They are all #toocute. And since it is already mid-May, it is none to early to place your order for your campers' personalized stationery, journals, and name labels. And don't forget the stamp!
Summer camp is the place that children have the time to step back from their daily routines and discover and/or explore their passions. It is also the time for many kids to take a break from technology and revert to old fashioned pen and pencil. Although, at the time, letters home can be a source of parent consternation, we promise, if you save those letters, they will elicit peels of laughter for many years to come. We recently found one of Izzy's famed letter's home that simply read “COME GET ME NOW!” on her customized camp stationery. The fact that we received the letter at least 2 weeks after it was written proved to have been a good thing. By the time these hovering parents called the camp, all was good! Continue Reading →

Even though the U.S. team will not be playing, the World Cup final game between Germany and Argentina can be a great time to get together with friends and watch some soccer! The two teams are equally qualified, so who will you root for? Germany, who beat Brazil in the semi-finals by an unbelievable margin of 7-1? Or Argentina, who won their last world cup in 1986 and boasts the “best player in the world,” Messi?
We have put together a simple party package so you can eat, drink, and enjoy the game, no matter who you're cheering for! All the items are Amazon Prime or have a two day shipping option, so you can have them in time for the big game.
As we have so often mentioned, it is our visitors who inspire these posts. One of the most common questions we are asked is where to find specialty kippah (yarmulke) for themed events like weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. And well over 50% of our clients are specifically seeking sports kippah. Sometimes my go to Judaica stores carriy them but truthfully, although I have seen generic sports kippah (i.e. football kippah or basketball kippah). Some people are more traditional but if the honoree is a sports fan, we really do not think there is anything wrong with adding a hint of personality to even the most formal events. In our oh so humble opinion, it is the little touches that transform a wedding from pinterest inspired to warm and hamish. We can just picture the groom and groomsmen walking down the aisle in their sharp black tux, crisp white shirts, handsome bow ties, and their Padres sports kippah! And even if you can't quite bring yourself to advertise your favorite team at your wedding, these yarmulkes also make fun gifts. Think Father's Day, Chanukah, or any day!
