Every once in a while we actually laugh out loud at something that comes across our Facebook feed. This morning we laughed ourselves silly over this You've Got Mail cartoon so wittily depicting something we have been harping on for ages >> No matter how formal or informal your party, mail your invitations! Those email invites not only get lost in all of our inboxes, they fail to elicit joy and excitement and a sense of anticipation in the recipient. And keep this cartoon in mind when you are tempted to email your thank you notes. A beautifully written handwritten note still makes a more thoughtful impression. 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 2014
This year Hanukkah begins on Tuesday, December 16 and ends the evening of Wednesday, December 24. 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 →
It has taken me a bit to get used to but every year my husband's family mails out Thanksgiving invitations. Although this tradition may seem a bit formal, it is actually quite lovely. Each year the invitation itself sets the tone for that year’s Thanksgiving festivities. Moreover, the actual receipt of the invitation ignites conversations and anticipation about seeing aunts, uncles, and cousins galore. We even look forward to guessing what valuables the new batch of toddlers will inevitably break.
So before you get too overwhelmed with holiday planning, we made your job a little easier – here is an overview of the best of the best Thanksgiving invitations to inspire you. Every year all our favorite merchants introduce a fresh batch of Thanksgiving invitations so be sure to to scroll through all of your options so you can familiarize yourself with the new looks as well as the more classic stationery styles. Last year when we were hosting a California Thanksgiving, I purposely chose an elegant look rather than a ultra casual style because I wanted all the New Englanders to rest assured that although we would definitely put a unique San Diego spin on Thanksgiving, we would still honor the traditions they had learned to love and come to expect.
