2012 Holiday Cards
"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."

"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium.
I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."

"As always Shutterfly is easy to use and make any product. If you select this card be sure to use larger images because they are much smaller when the card prints. My color was off on one photo but that is my only "complaint".
Out of all of the online card services, I think Shutterfly is the best value and most user friendly."
How to Throw an Elegant Holiday Party
The holidays are a time to relax and spend time at home with your family, but they are also a great time to get dressed up in your best outfits to have a creative and fun Christmas party. All it takes is a bit of preparation.
Choose a Venue
Start by deciding where you want to have your party. If your home would work well with the elegant theme, you may choose to save money by having it at home. If you want something more unique or if you have a large guest list, you may opt to rent part or all of a hotel ballroom or other meeting space in your city.
Consider Your Décor
After choosing a venue, you’ll need to decide how to decorate it. Silver and black is a great base and versatile enough that you can use nearly any color as the accent for flowers, balloons or other décor.
Decide on Food and Drink
Depending on your budget, you could offer your guests a full dinner before dancing the rest of the night. If you prefer to keep things simple, offer simple champagne and cocktails with easy-to-eat hors d’oeuvres. If you do have a sit-down dinner, don’t forget to factor table space into your venue rental so you can be sure you have enough space.
Pick the Music
Do you want a live band or a DJ? Either way, you should a mix of classic holiday songs, newer holiday hits, and non-themed music. By offering a variety, you will be able to keep most or all of your guests happy and dancing.
