Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see the fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY. Continue Reading →

Christmas Throw Pillows >> Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls
We happened upon this great Tiny Prints instagram today and had to re-post it. We love the idea of adding just a touch of holiday cheer to every room in your house. You do not need to decorate every inch of the room from floor to ceiling, just add a couple of fabulous holiday throw pillows here and there and you are set. We come across lots of pillows every single day and so far, these Tiny Prints Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls pillow are our hands down favorites. As we come across other pillows we like, we will continue to update this post.
Now that Tiny Prints is part of Shutterfly we just cannot garner the same enthusiasm for the company or their products. These days we are more likely to turn to Zazzle or when we are looking for something special.
One more thought >> these pillows would make lovely holiday & hostess gifts!
A Little About the Pillows
Pet Lover Holiday Photo Cards
For all of you who love your four-legged friends, our friends over at GreatGets.com have put together 7 of their favorite pet lover holiday photo cards ! Not surprisingly, they too turned to Minted and Zazzle two of our very favorite stationery merchants. Personally, we think these puppy pictures are a great alternative to family photos , especially as your kids grow up and are no longer interested in posing for the family photo. Continue Reading →
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 →

S'mores Party Invitations – Photo Courtesy of blog.Tiny Prints
We love Instagram. We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints. How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard! We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun. Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →
Tiny Prints is Getting a New Home
Yep! You read that correctly. Tiny Prints is getting a new home and truthfully, we are not happy. They have decided to close their current site and combine forces with their sister company, Shutterfly. We like Shutterfly just fine. Our issue with the move is that we have innumerable links to Tiny Prints products that we love and it will take us months and months to find them all and replace them with links to their comparable products on Shutterfly. So, if you do click on an invitation link and it sends you back to our home page, please be patient. In the meantime, you can use this link to Shutterfly and then search on the product name. Hopefully, you can find the exact product on Shutterfly and all will be good.
We have also discovered Minted.com. Minted features many of the same convenient features that we loved about TinyPrints and also offers a large variety of card designs. You will not be disappointed with Minted.
Once again, thank you for your patience as we make the transition along with Tiny Prints! And remember, Tiny Prints last day is June 27, 2017.
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 →
Loving this Shutterfly's custom mugs. We think this mug would make a wonderful teacher holiday gift, especially at 40% off. The chalkboard chic pattern with your child's teacher's initial has a cool teacher vibe yet is not another apple gift.
