Since this is party season I would like to remind you about RSVP’ing to parties at a person home.
When you receive an invitation and it says “regrets only” you must tell your host if you are not coming. If you do not reply, the host expects you to come. Please make sure you tell the host yourself. It should not come from someone else. You should also bring the host a small gift when attending. Do not make a dessert or any kind of food for the other guests unless you are asked. The person having the party has already gone to a lot of trouble preparing for the party and bringing any type of food that is not wanted will only upset the host. So to be on the safe side ask your host if they would like you to make anything. If they say yes than you may bring what they requested. If they say no and most hosts will say no than bring a small gift to the host to thank them for inviting you.
One thing that might go wrong on the wedding day is that someone from the outside or within might decide to walk away with one of your gifts. When receiving wedding gifts at a reception venue please make sure you have someone watching over the gifts, especially if there are money envelopes.
Suggestion: Place envelopes in a small white satin bag and give it to someone you can trust.
If you have a wedding or party question please let me know. I will be happy to answer it.
Ways to keep wedding costs down. You should not invite a guest or “plus one”. If someone is engaged then you may add them as a guest. If you send out “Save the Date” notices everyone will make sure they have it on their calendar. If you don't send out the notice some may not be able to come when they receive the invitation.
Another way to keep cost down is to only invited family and very close friends.
If you do not know if a woman is married use Miss or Ms.
If a woman has a title such as Dr. use it before her first name.
If a woman is a widow she is addressed as for example Mrs. John Smith. Do not use her first name.
If a woman is divorced she is addressed for example as Mrs. Mary Smith. Use her first name in this case.
In today’s world of computers, please do not send wedding invitations over the internet. It is proper to send a wedding invitation or any other invitation through the mail. A wedding is a very important day in your life. So it is only fitting that you choose an invitation on a good stock of paper and send it out in the mail.
Invitations: Be careful when ordering your invitations on the internet. The colors might not be true to color when you receive them. Always ask for a sample before ordering. It is always best to go to a dealer that have invitation books so that you can look at the invitation when you are there and then decide.

Children Birthday Parties:
Many parents go overboard and spend a lot of money on children birthday parties these days. Remember these our your children and it is best to keep things simple. The only thing they will remember is that they had a good time. Go back to times when things were simpler. Try some old fashion games such as pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, make a craft to name a few. Stay away from electronic games. You want the children to interact with each other. Serve ice cream and a cake and open up gifts!
