Thanksgiving is without doubt my favorite holiday — beautiful tables, great food, and none of the stress associated with the winter holidays. This is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones whether they be family or friends. So first things first, if you haven’t yet made your travel arrangements, the time is NOW! …
Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor
Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables!

Print and Play!
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren’t going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That’s where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don’t get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.

Free Printables Celebrate Dads
Today we received the best looking wedding save the date we have seen in quite some time. It immediately brought to mind Hello Lucky, one of our favorite stationery merchants. Turns out they recently retired their custom invitations to concentrate on greeting cards. While perusing their new product line we happened upon these beautifully designed FREE printables for dad. Yes they are perfect for Father’s Day but hey, Dads’ have birthdays and enjoy gifts at the holidays too and most Dads’ deserve to be celebrated everyday! We especially love the custom vintage style beer labels and sock bands. What a way to make giving a ho hum pair of black socks special.
