February News

Happy February!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like 2012 is flying by already!  We have been so busy over here, I thought I would take a few moments out and fill you in on all of the new and exciting things going on at The Party Dress and WH Hostess right now.

We welcomed two new contributors to The Party Dress in January: Jane, our WH Hostess college intern, as well as Casi from CupcakeMAG.  I hope you have enjoyed reading their posts!

January was spent cleaning up last year and preparing for some big parties early this year.  We had an absolutely amazing holiday season, and it left us with very little downtime!  We worked hard this month to finish up some new collections (did you see our new line of adult notecards? oh, and the new chunky notepad patterns?!) as well as put the finishing touches on our brand-new-just-launching-oh-so-fabulous wholesale line.  Fresh, modern, preppy patterns on so many cute stationery products….to say we are smitten is an understatement.  We are working with some boutiques across the country, but if you know of a store we should contact….pass it along!

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, remember to get your orders in for our darling collection of personalized valentines for kiddos.  (who am I kidding?! I am totally sending out the monogram ones from myself!)

We have a few big client parties that are in the works that have the makings to be just amazing. I am hoping my clients allow me to share pictures with all of you soon!

Speaking of pictures, one of the best parts of my job is receiving photos after a party – I just love seeing how our party goods are used!  Just this week, I received photos from 3 amazing parties….stay tuned, they will be up on the blog soon!  (one hint, check out our new barnyard farm animals collection!)  Have you used our products for a party?!  We would LOVE to see pictures!  You can e-mail them to parties@thepartydress.net.  Who knows, they may just end up being featured on the blog!

The biggest news this month is that the Spring 2012 issue of The Party Dress Magazine is now available for pre-order!  This issue literally makes me smile every time I think about it.  Amazing contributors.  Amazing parties, photography and ideas.  Trust me when I say, each issue is getting better and better….and this one is going to knock your socks off!  The digital issue will launch on Monday, March 12th and the pre-ordered printed issues will ship on or before that date.  Charynn and I are finishing up photo shoots this week and it’s going to be very hard not to share the ideas with you just yet.  Maybe we’ll have to do a little sneak peek!

Texas fans, take note:  I am headed to Ft. Worth the last weekend of February to speak on hosting stylish parties at the Project Mom conference.  In the area?!  Come join me!

We are SO close to hitting 10,000 fans on facebook!  CRAZY!! Are you a fan?!  If not, join us!  If so, please pass us along to your friends!  If we hit 10,000 by the time the magazine launches we are going to have one BIG celebration + giveaway!

That’s it for today, my friends!  I look forward to a month of creative ideas, trends and new parties to share!  Happy February!
