Real cards (and parties!) created by real people like you!
This month’s Featured Favorite is Allison who wanted a superhero themed birthday party for her son, Teddy. She chose our He’s a Superhero Mask Kids Birthday Invitation to kick off the superhero party ideas and set the tone for the birthday. Allison was able to personalize the card with ‘T’ for Teddy and change the colors. She also picked a unique invitation that doubles as a mask that the invitees can play with at home, which sets the stage for how fun this party is going to be.
Calling all Superheroes! Report to Teddy’s 2nd birthday party right away. No need to bring your mask and cape, we’ve got you covered.
For all those who’ve struggled with how to write a thank you card, here are a few tips that might make it a little easier. Whether your note is to follow up on a job interview or to thank a party hostess, knowing how to get started will make it that much easier to finish.
- Write it right away. Preferably while the event is fresh in your mind. Nothing is harder than trying to remember details of a conversation, dinner party or event, weeks after it happened. If you write the thank you note quickly, it’ll be easier to come up with specific things to mention, perhaps a funny moment or a thoughtful touch you appreciated.

What’s a Sip & See, you ask? It’s a party that the new parents host after the baby is born to introduce him or her to all their friends. Unlike a traditional baby shower, gifts and games are not the main attraction at a Sip & See — instead, it’s all about the baby!
Advantages to a Sip & See
The biggest advantage to a Sip & See is that everyone gets to meet the new baby. But there are plenty of other reasons that you, as new parents, might find this an attractive baby shower idea. At a Sip & See, you get to make all the decisions. You can decide what to serve, whom to invite, when to have it, and whether or not there will be any embarrassing shower games. And you can avoid the awkward, one-by-one opening of gifts that can so easily drag down a baby shower.
