Sunday, February 26, 2017

Have you agreed to the exciting opportunity to host a baby shower for a dear friend, family member or coworker? It’s an exciting time for everyone, most especially the mother-to-be. There are so many options, themes and opportunities to welcome a new mother. Follow these suggestions from the professional party planners and you’ll have a wonderful event full of memories to last a life time for the new mother.

The first step in planning is to determine the date, invitation list and budget. Often several friends or co-workers will co-host. This lessens the financial burden for each.  A private home or restaurant is often the most favorable venue. Once the date and guest list have been established either have invitations  printed and mailed or select an eVite website to use.  Let the guest know the venue, theme date and time of the event. If the mother-to-be has a gift registry, include this information on the invitation.

After a final head count of responses, begin to plan a menu for the event. Light salads and sandwiches together with a cake is the most appropriate. Decide on decorations and either paper products or dish ware for the food service.  Often those cohosting will assist in either purchasing or preparing the food for the event.

Consider the fun games and activities that are so popular at baby showers.  Have guests write words of wisdom on baby care for the new mother.  She’ll certainly appreciate that. Don’t forget the father to be If this is not a couples shower, take advantage of the great deals offered by Groupon coupons and spring for a selection of cigars from JR Cigars for the father to be.  It will certainly be appreciated. Designate one of the cohosts to keep a list of gifts for thank you notes. The mother to be will certainly appreciate this. Take plenty of pictures of the event which everyone will enjoy for years to come. Best of luck to you and the lucky mother to be.


Exploring The Date Night Essentials That Will Help You Achieve Success

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Dating can be extremely rewarding, but only if you are armed with the proper essentials. Many girls will pack their purse full of goodies for date night, but guys are not so lucky, because they do not carry a handbag. However, date night essentials are not all about the items that you can cram into your purse. No, it is about so much more. Continue reading this article to discover more information about those much-needed date night essentials.

Movie Tickets

A first date does not always have to be filled with glamorous entertainment. Many women and men are very well satisfied with brunch and a movie. Almost everyone enjoys watching movies, but you will need to be selective, when choosing a genre. You definitely do not want to scare her away with a horror movie or make her cry a handful of tears with a drama movie. Comedy will probably be your best bet, because everyone enjoys a laugh. Plus, laughing will put your date in a good mood and increase your chances of scoring a second date.

Mouth Watering Dessert

Now, a date would not be a date with a mouth-watering dessert. You do not necessarily need to take your date to a five star restaurant to make her happy. You cannot go wrong with a delicious meal from a nice café or diner, but it must be followed up with a delicious dessert. Instead of purchasing two separate desserts, you may want to just share one. However, this can be a bit risky, so be sure to choose a dessert that is suitable for sharing with someone new. Stay clear of donuts or hand dipped ice cream, because it would be nearly impossible to share this type of dessert with someone else.

Stick with a hot chocolate sundae, slice of pie or a creamy milkshake. All of these desserts will do the trick, plus they will leave your date’s taste buds working over time. Always request an additional straw or fork, when purchasing a dessert that will be shared with someone.

Appropriate Attire

The best way to make sure your attire lines up with your date night activities is to choose, where you are going to go on date night in advance. You should also make this information available to your date, because you do not want him or her to feel out of place. Now, you do not need to wear an expensive suit and tie or a cocktail dress on a first date. Instead, stick with attire that will be suitable for the activities that you plan on partaking in.

Vaping Accessories

You should never smoke when you are out on a date. Instead play it safe, by packing your portable vaporizer and eliquid. Vaping does not emit a pungent odor that tends to stick on hair and clothing like tobacco cigarettes. When the e-juice is heated up, it will emit a nice scent that is not harmful to others. Vaping will be more acceptable, plus you do not need to take your date into a restricted smoking area, which can be a little uncomfortable for someone that does not smoke
