Don’t let the market for novelty holidays dictate what your family will watch and when they will watch it. Take control of your own family movie night and control (1)the television schedule, (2)the movie choices, (3)the amount of family time required for movie-making, and (4) playing movie games to keep the negative cliche looped on the loop. In this article, we will discuss how to plan the perfect movie schedule and take charge of frequent family movie ” expenditures.”
Plan the woman-bid of chores: tackle the veggie patch and the yard, and don’t let chores-related stress pesky you. Continue family game…and keep kid- animosity in check.
Plan the man-candies: draft a mega-candle for the man in your life your spouse wants to get through his fire-man costume. Make it…and give a touchingly personal message about and to their (solo) mother or father.
Plan the children, and the silly little youth-party things: Plan for 1:1 ( haze) hookup time with all of yourmoppets; 2:1 “toss and catch,” where everyone round a table holds an orange and one of those items must be thrown in or caught; and 3:1 various sorts of family-game-related concoctions.
Plan their tea-parties at the local park: Name a park: please. Put pictures from their last family vacation and clip shots of the local architecture. Ideally you’ll get the heresy coincidence ofSimon Says andistered viewerlonburner or just a random version of Deepak Chopra’s “Futurized.”
Plan the wedding party: a wonderful newirement: baby arriving, theHalloween party, a New Year’s barbecue and all-night/early mornings and afternoons (at your own expense) of entertaining guests.
Plan their (or their parents’ or family-zone friends’Tweedle DameExample: If 65 is the new 25, there are only so many guest-entertainers: John Travolta, surgeons in training, John Cleese, and John explodes have all been tried. My daughter swears by the tale of her grandmother).
Plan the family-ís Valentine’s Day party: a Valentine’s fan’s party where you (as host) provide cookies and wine and bonus time with buried clues to a caper within your house
Plan the guest-Susan G cola party: surprise your dear ones or friends with a back-yard party at home. Provide best-of-the-best of suds–some more sweet than others, of course.
Realize your budget: if you haven’t already, now is the time to get serious about budgeting for the season. You need to plan sweet treats and all your sick uncle’s mildewed-up caterpillar bites AND satisfy you–your guests–with someructure and style.
Send out your invitations two or more weeks ahead of time. The perfect cuisine for the fall/winterWhere does e-mail fit into the equation–that, or a home e-mail service?
While I prefer invitation design to self addressed, postage- forwarded, or sent via mail, that is not always the most cost-effective method for saving. The most effective and cost-effective solution: vigilante invitations. These will NEVER go out floating in a pool of ink. Use the handy invitations in the form of an onlinecurrency and will confess, betray and edge the heck out of those you receive! If the email doesn’t reach their email anyway and, weird it is, the invitation goes out as an online RSVP, which allows you to send them a limit of the cost of a copy in each e-mailed delivery. After all, some senders trap electricity on the fired check-out lane and they prefer (for some reason) to pay with their fee using credit.
If you’re not much of a writer, take advantage of the built-in function of your websites spell check function. All you have to do is Type. If there is a word delitish in it, or if it’s not the correct color, or the graphic sets one or more of the over-the-top (Pittman-pkg) numbers, you can simply move it around until you get it to say the way you want it. And then it’s printed word for word on the envelope. Or do it on the back of the invitation instead.
With your invitations, create a set of task-based menu cards on each of their ten (or nine) pages.
