Tomorrow is my big post surgery appointment and one footed pedicure (I knew I could find one!) so my mood was instantly lifted by 10am. Throw in a haircut scheduled for Saturday morning and a new pair of earrings on hold at The Shoe Hive and I am one happy working mom!
You can join Julep HERE. I was on the fence about trying Julep and a coupon code made me bite the bullet and order and I haven't looked back. In case you are in the same boat, I wanted to share a discount with you. If you enter COLOR2012 at checkout you can get your first box for 1 cent. I mean how can you not try something for a PENNY? I just ordered a couple of subscriptions as gifts today.
For those of you that actually didn't fall asleep reading yesterday's post, I realized it might have sounded that I dread throwing parties and it is just the opposite. I love them, from thinking of the theme, to the favor to the menu, parties for me are the chance to spend time with family and family by choice.
Sometimes the hardest part can be picking a theme and finding an invite. So starting tomorrow through May 15th take 25% off ALL party invitations with code: PTIME25.
Our clients always give us the best ideas so I thought I would share some them. Movie parties seem to be the new thing for the 8-12 age group. We had a client order these movie party invites today. Here is the best part, the movie is being shown on an inflatable screen in her backyard. After a few emails back and forth we helped her decide to serve the snacks in the beach pails that are in the $1 section at Target and monogram beach towels for each of the guests to serve as their "seat" and their favor.
Another client has a great farm about two hours outside of Washington, D.C. Every spring she orders direction cards to the farm. Clean and simple cards that she personalizes with directions to their farm. She simply includes them in notes inviting guests. I think this is a GREAT idea for beach houses as well. Another client prints these same cards and leaves them at their beach house with information on the area: where to eat, a spa, where to shop.
Mini K spends half the year trying to figure out why our club pool isn't open for a pool party...in DECEMBER. So I am thinking of letting her have a pool party this summer. I confess, it might just be to use this invite!
