Technology has changed so many things about the party industry, from inspirational decor photos to clever cupcake topper downloads.  None has been more affected than the invitation industry. 

It's been a loooong time since I've taken a real vacation.  My husband Scott and I go to Mexico every February and July, but that's more of a second home than a vacation.  We have obligations, friends, family, a home to take care of... Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love Mexico and all it has to offer, but it is by no means a vacation.  What I'm talking about is an honest to goodness, stay in a hotel, eat restaurant food, experience mind-boggling adventures, vacation.  

I have to be completely honest with you...I keep waiting for the slime craze to end.  However, it shows no sign of slowing down.  For the umpteenth time this month, I find myself cursing myself for not purchasing stock in Elmer's.

Stress.  It seems like everyone, even kids are suffering from it.  Whether it comes from your job, social media, or a schedule so jammed packed you need a clone to actually handle it all, it just seems to be part of the American way.  

Which is why, recently, we came up with a very simple idea for an easy craft/take home gift.  It's a bath tea apothecary where guests can make their very own tub teas.

Okay, okay, okay....I know I decided a few years back to stop planning Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.  It's not because I didn't love doing them, or enjoy my interaction with my clients, but because they are very time consuming and take me away from what I really love doing, interacting creatively with kids.  However, when a dear client of over 25 years approached me about doing their daughter's Bat Mitzvah I found it hard to decline. Especially when I heard what they wanted to do for a theme.
