Ripped from the Headlines Halloween Party

Ripped From the Headlines Halloween Party

by Lauren

2015 has been quite the year. We were so inspired by this Great Gets post imagining Halloween costumes ripped from the headlines. Theme your Halloween and create a ripped from the headlines Halloween party! Tell your guests to arrive in costumes straight off the front page and the evening news — between politics, sports, and culture, there’s plenty to choose from! These costumes are easy, fun, and add a touch of humor and pop culture knowledge to any Halloween party. And yes although some of the featured costumes are satirical and poke a bit of fun at politicians and other public figures, we have made a conscious decision not to feature costumes we deem disrespectful, or have the potential to incite violence or foster hatred and we implore you to do the same.  Please no Caitlyn Jenner or Black Lives Matter costumes, and please, please stay away from anything and everything ISIS.

Color-In Kids Thank You Notes

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 →

Wedding Invitation Wording >>What Not to Include

This week on Small Talk Big Day, Amber, from Wedding Paper Divas, offers easy tips for wedding invitation wording. Two of Party Idea Pros most frequently asked questions is how to address wedding invitations and how much information to actually include on the invitation itself. Sometimes it is just as important to know what not to include especially if it might be a major wedding faux pas. Here are some great tips on what not to say to your guests:

  • Gift Registry Information – It is totally acceptable to hope your guests send you gifts. However, your wedding invitations are not the place to talk about present requests. Leave that type of detailed information to your Wedding Website instead! This frees up more room for specific information about the venue and wedding date.
  • NO Kids allowed – It’s not uncommon for the bride and groom to prefer that children don’t attend the Big Day. Instead of telling parents to just leave the children at home, it is much more polite to specifically address the invite with who can come to the wedding! Be precise on your invitation, and only list names of the individuals allowed to attend.  We promise, following this little rule will save you untold headaches!
  • Entree Selections – Please leave any talk about food to the response cards. If you prefer to have a dry wedding, you do not need to list that on your wedding invitation! Your Wedding Website is the perfect place to share any fun, extra information for your guests.
