The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel

Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)! 

Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to”  party activity mostly  because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.

Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.Party Fun: Lip Sync Duel, karaoke, party fun, activities, games

What you need:

  1. Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
  2. A diverse playlist
  3. A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!

Party Hearty!

Email Beautiful Jewish New Year Cards – FREE!

For years I have been sending out wishes of sweet blessings filled with abundant joy and peace to friends and family as we prepare to celebrate another religious holiday, the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. But in all truthfulness, for the last few years, I have gotten lazy. Rather than planning ahead and keeping an eye out for the perfect L'Shanah Tovah greeting card months in advance as I did in my youth, I have waited until the last minute and ended up sending blah picture-less emails with a line or two of text.  If I was feeling particularly industrious and creative, I colored the text blue.

This year I found an amazing company, PurpleTrail.com that not only has lovely selection of elegant Jewish New Years  cards, they encourage their visitors to personalize their cards by adding photos, moving and changing text, and even adding embellishments and background images.   And best of all, Purple Trail  offers the choice of mailing your cards, printing your cards at home, or emailing them!  And now for the clincher — you can send online invitations or eCards for FREE to up to 50 email recipients!  If you want to send your card to more than 50 email addresses or would like to add music to your card, simply join one of Purple Trail's membership clubs — all very, very reasonably priced.

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year – L' Shanah Tovah

Party Hearty!
