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 →
Tiny Prints >> Color-In Kids Thank You Notes
How cute are these color-in kids thank you notes from Tiny Prints. We are huge believers in teaching children from a very young age the importance of communicating gratitude. In fact, we think the sending of thank you notes, at any age is an etiquette must. (Brides and grooms are you listening? We are still awaiting way too many thank you notes. Although your guests may have a year to send a present, you do not have a year to send out your thank you's. Think a few weeks – a month at the most!) Continue Reading →
Celebrate Summer Party Invitations
We love summer! The days are warm, the nights are long and it is a perfect opportunity to gather friends and family together to party and create lasting memories. It all begins with a simple invitation. As you well know, PartyIdeaPros.com believes invitations are essential to a successful party. Yes, a quick phone call, email, or text message gets the job done but a mailed invitation actually sets the tone and creates excitement for your party. Our very informal non-scientific poll indicates that 82% of Americans actually hang their invitations on their refrigerator, ensuring your guest will glance at your invitation at least a dozen times each day.

Update! There is still time to order your gifts and have them delivered before Christmas. Yes, you will most likely pay extra for shipping but it is so worth the money to avoid the crowds at the malls and to ensure your clients, colleagues, and associates know you are thinking of them this holiday season! If by chance you miss the Christmas cut-offs, please know, it is perfectly acceptable business practice that holiday business gifts arrive anytime before the New Year.

Best Pi Beta Phi Sorority Gfits: Arrow bangle bracelet | Arrow Socks
If you have followed us for any length of time you probably already know of our #PiPhiLove and our absolute obsession with the perfect Pi Beta Phi gift, the iconic Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Gold Arrow Necklace or Silver Arrow Necklace. This little necklace embodies the essence of a Pi Beta Phi sorority woman: strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet subtle, delicate, and feminine.
With recruitment season in full swing, we realized that soon big sisters across the country will be embarking on the annual quest to find the best little sister gifts available. Yes, we still love the arrow necklace but realize a single gift probably won't suffice so we have assembled a collection of the best Pi Phi gifts available at a reasonable price point yet not so junky they will get tossed in the trash at the end of the school year.
You can admit it, half of those Pi Phi stickers and pins and painted wooden arrows never make it to next year's dorm room. However, we guarantee you a dainty and classic arrow bangle bracelets will be worn almost everyday and at just $3.99 (for 2 days only!) falls within most little sister gift budgets.We were also please to discover a great selection of arrow journals and believe it is well worth spending $10.95 (minus Zazzle's daily deal discount) for a pink glitter arrow journal to help your little sister memorialize the amazing year ahead. And just about any sister could use a 5-pack of arrow socks for only $6.99, a tervis pi beta phi tumbler, or a new Pi Phi iPhone case.
Some of my favorite things came to be on April 2nd. It is the day the first egg roll took place on the White house lawn (1877). It is the day the first motion picture theater opened in LA (1902). It is the day of birth of one of my closest and most admired friend, Cynthia, of music legend Marvin Gaye, of our favorite Law & Order SVU alum, Chrisopher Meloni, and of our go-to company for the freshest, most fabulous paper products (including stationery, invitations, and announcements for any and all occasions), wall art and party décor – Minted!
Today, April 2nd, is Minted's 5th Birthday and they want everyone to celebrate with a week-long promotion of 15% off the entire site! You definitely don't want to miss out on the celebration! The promotion starts today and ends midnight PST on Monday April 8th.
Shoe Theme Party Invitations
There are so many fabulous shoe theme invitations from which to choose! Whether you are planning a special ladies luncheon, a bridal shower, or a wild bachelorette party, you will have no problem finding a perfect invitation. Remember choosing your invitation is the equivalent of the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party! And don't forget the stamp! If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.

As with most mornings, I was awakened by the blaring sounds of the Today Show as my husband worked out on the elliptical. But this morning, when I opened my eyes I saw a lovely display of a handful of Tiny Prints autumn inspired invitations and stationery. I decided to jump on the computer and try to find the products featured. Not as easy a task as one would have anticipated but ultimately, I found them all plus some extras that I just had to share!
Fall is filled with so many excuses to party, even beyond Halloween and Thanksgiving. It is really a shame not to take the time to formally invite family or friends over for a lovely dinner party, an afternoon fiesta filled with football, food & fun, or a best vintage yet party to celebrate the fall harvest. And don't forget to incorporate seasonality into your showers and birthday luncheons, too..
Enjoy the weather. Enjoy the Season. Party Hearty!
