Happy New Year!

Wow! I can’t believe we’re already 6 days into the New Year! I’m so looking forward to this year with lots of great things going one!  The start of a New Year seems like the perfect time to get a fresh start and I’ve been busy trying to clean and organize my office.  I always feel so much better sitting down to work in a clean, pretty space, don’t you?  Along with some changes to current products and the addition of new items, we also have a new baby on the way so an even bigger reason to get organized.  Hopefully, I’ll be be able to stay on top of things once he/she arrives if I take the time now to get a good system in place!

confetti-homepage-sale-2014To celebrate the start of the New Year, I am once again offering free shipping on all orders placed from now until the end of January.  No code will be needed if you order from our website; free first class shipping will be one of the shipping options you can choose.  If you prefer to order from our Etsy shop, the free shipping code will be listed in the announcements section.  Free first class shipping is only available to order shipping to an United States address.

For Boy Scouts, reaching the rank of Eagle Scout is the ultimate achievement.  Becoming an Eagle Scout requires a lot of hard work and time on behalf of the scout to earn numerous merit badges and meet requirements in leadership, service, outdoor skills. The purpose of the Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony is to honor the new Eagle Scout and recognize his commitment and effort to achieve the highest rank in Boy Scouts.

There are many details to consider when planning a Court of Honor ceremony including a place and time for the ceremony, the invitations and the guest list, the ceremony itself and of course the reception afterwards. One of the first steps in planning is to decide on the guest list so you can send out invitations.

We’ve come up with a helpful list of people you may want to consider inviting. Generally, the scouts entire troop is invited so this list focuses on people outside of the troop.
- Family
- Friends of the scout
- Friends of the family
- People who have helped the scout reach his achievement, especially those involved in the service project.
- Former Cub Scout and Boy Scout troop leaders
- Troop dignitaries
- District and Council dignitaries
- Local dignitaries like the Mayor or members of the city/town council
- Past Eagle Scouts
- High school principal as well as the scouts favorite teachers and coaches
Be sure to check with your scout’s troop leaders as they may also provide you with a list of people to invite.

Once you have your guest list, it’s time to order the invitations.  We have a large variety of Eagle Scout Court of Honor invitations to choose from, all of which feature a photo of the Eagle Scout.  You should send out the invitations at least 3-4 weeks ahead of time to give your guests plenty of notice.  We recommend ordering your cards 1 or 2 weeks before you need them to allow time for proofing the cards and then printing and shipping.

Planning a Eagle Scout Court of Honor is a huge undertaking but well worth the time the effort.  I hope this list will be a good starting point for your own guest list.

I’ve been selling my pajama birthday party invitations in the shop for a while. They’ve been a best seller for girls slumber birthday parties. Recently, I had a customer ask for a custom design to make the pj’s invitation work for a pancakes and pajamas party. The colors of the party were teal and yellow so I changed the colors of the pajamas and designed an yummy plate of pancakes topped with a pad of butter and smothered with sweet maple syrup. The redesign turned out perfect! I was so inspired by this invitation that I designed this pancakes and pajamas party inspiration board.  Check out my yellow and teal pancakes and pajamas pinterest board for even more inspiration.  All vendors and sources are listed below.pancakes and pajamas birthday party inspiration
