Summer is right around the corner. We are that much closer to warm, sunshine-filled days and relaxing by the pool. Memorial Day is often an unofficial marker to the beginning of summer, and it is approaching quickly. Many of us choose to celebrate this holiday by gathering with friends and family, having a small party, and firing up the grill to cook delicious foods, all while remembering the service men and women who have dedicated their lives to our country. We could never celebrate or say thank you enough, but I am always glad to have a special day to observe this important holiday and be reminded of our country’s history. If you are planning a social gathering for Memorial Day this year, American Stationery has some great party items for you to wow your guests. Coasters, napkins, and cups – all personalized for you and your party. We have tons of coasters to choose from, but my favorites for Memorial Day are the Designer Coasters with the Monogram. There are three options with red, white, and blue as the colors, and you can create the monogram of your choosing. Pattern 18 – red swirls is my favorite! You receive...Read More
Well, the red hearts and candies have vanished from the department store shelves and now novelties of every sort are covering the shelves all with one thing in common, everything is green. Saint Patrick’s Day will be here soon and the parties are being planned as well as the outfits. If you are looking to throw a party or attend one, American Stationery has many things to get you in the Irish spirit. Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious celebration that has occurred annually on March 17 for many years. Depending on which country in this world you call home, it could have been celebrated for 200 years or more. The date is significant as it is the death date of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. This holiday is quite a big deal here in the United States, particularly so in areas of high Irish ancestry. Some cities have large parades and host many different activities for their communities.  Many restaurants and pubs have special events that night from green beer to special Irish themed foods and drinks. If you yourself plan on having a party for this popular holiday consider item number 2407. You will definitely want to place your order...Read More

We’ve discussed the stress of moving and how to purchase cards to let your friends know of your new address. But, one of the fun things about moving is the housewarming party! Housewarming parties are popular in practically every corner of the world. They may not all be celebrated exactly the same, or have the same traditions but, they all carry the same theme and that is to welcome a family into their new home warmly both, figuratively and literally. It’s true long ago people would bring firewood over to the new home in order to help you “warm” the home and this wasn’t necessarily just for actual physical warmth but, for spiritual warmth as well. First thing, you need to let your guests know that you plan on having a housewarming party. Typically you will want to invite them anywhere from 10 days to three weeks prior to the party. When you decide to have the party is up to you of course but, six months after moving in is probably too long and one week after may be too soon. You know yourself and your guests’ best. Don’t be rough on yourself and try to have everyone over...Read More
