A Featured Event: 10th Annual Wayzgoose & Steamroller Smackdown

You’re invited to the 10th annual festival of all things letterpress. While a decade of Wayzgoose fun is definitely something worth celebrating, so is the School of Visual Concepts’ 40th birthday. Since 1971, SVC has been helping people learn the art and craft of design, copywriting, and for the last ten years, letterpress printing. So come join in and have a grand old time that’s been 40 years in the making. This is a free and family-friendly event.…

Sweet Spot #16: Summertime Signature Sipping Station

Labor Day is right around the corner, do you have plans? Time to plan your end-of-summer celebration! As a perpetual-yet-purely-non-professional party planner myself, I always find grandiose new ideas I want to try or delicious little new foods I want to make for my guests, but I always run into the same problem… I run out of time. Some of you might be saying, ‘Candie, how can you run out of time when you plan each event months in advance!?!’ LOL, I say this to myself every time too! I’ve found that it’s not the planning that needs more time, it’s the preparation, and there’s not much wiggle room there, since most is done the day of a party. So I’ve learned to simplify each idea into under 3 steps and under 10 minutes, with easy instructions that I can delegate.

Sweet Spot #6: Plan to Plate the Perfect Party

I don’t even know how I found these, but I’m wondering where they’ve been all my life! It was like the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot. I dreamt about the Holy Grail of party plates, but couldn’t ever find it. I knew I’d seen them somewhere before, but what are they called, and how can I Google them? Every party store I went to had no recollection of them and I always left feeling incomplete and concerned that I might be crazy for thinking they ever existed…

Sweet Spot #5: Party Dots for the Spot

Do you love glow bracelets as much as I do? Is your favorite part about the Holidays the light-adorned buildings and trees? When you go to Vegas, could you have just as much fun looking at the neon signs as gambling? Maybe I have a raver inside me, crying to get out, or maybe I am like a puppy with an attention problem; but I can’t get enough of lights! Call me crazy, but my favorite colors (I haven’t forgotten you, purple!) are Sparkly and Glow-in-the-Dark. They’re real colors, I promise!
