"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all this great info. I felt so lost planning my son's grad party and now with this site I feel under control and I have a plan!! You are awesome. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge."
- Teri Howard, Norcross, GA
"I really enjoyed reading your book; lots of great ideas and information. I read it over twice at different stages in our planning. One good hint is to write both day & date on the invite. I also made the graduation “hats” with the peanut butter cups and fruit roll-ups. They were a hit. I had several people ask me if I made these and tell me they were a cute idea. My son and husband play in a band so they performed. This was different, like you recommend. Everyone had a great time, especially my son Ben. He did his share of greeting and chatting with guests like you recommend. Great book!"

"This site is a lifesaver! I have been planning but I got some great ideas from you that I will use - just ordered the stamps. I know my daughter will be happy with her tribute - and I will be content that I gave her a great send off to college. THANK YOU."
- Elaine Twing, McGaheysville, VA
"I have been telling everyone about your website. The information was so helpful in planning my son's grad party. TRUST THE FOOD FORMULA!!! :-) Here is a tip for "confetti" for an outdoor party - I had my 7 year old daughter rubber stamp a random pattern with a small graduation cap stamp down the center of the paper table cloths. She felt important, it looked really cute, and made for easy clean up!"
- Cindy Lowe, Batavia, IL
"Please know that it was a very simple and straight forward process to order the [water bottle] labels. (As you may know, sometimes it is not!) I appreciate the attention to detail. Someone looked at the mock-up, made an evaluation and offered a recommendation. Wow! It is very refreshing to find a company that uses good judgment."
- Tonya Watson, Hot Springs, AR
"Just wanted to let you know that the [water bottle] labels were a big hit!!! Family took them for keepsakes and many people asked where we got them from so I gladly told them where I got them. They were very easy to apply, but we did choose to remove the actual labels and replace with the specialty labels, that was very easy also ... Thanks again!"
- Karen Shaw, Rockford, MI
"Thank you so much for all the insight contained in this site! I got some great ideas, like using the baby pool to keep the cold foods cold! You would not believe the number of people who were impressed at my great idea!!"

"I just want to say “Thank you” to both of you for your wonderful book (which I downloaded) and your newsletters. I am in the midst of planning my son’s high school graduation and I wanted you to know (as if you didn’t already) what a lifesaver your book is! I am looking forward to my son’s graduation ceremony and the party but I will be so glad when it’s over and we can all relax a little bit before we have to get ready for the next big event – sending him off to college. Thanks again for your fabulous book, newsletters and ideas!"

"In searching through the Internet, came across party 411 first. I thought there was a lot on it and after viewing your website, there was nothing on it but sales. Your website has been SOOO helpful, with so many ideas. The food part has not been an issue for us as we own a meat processing plant, but ALL the other details have had me in left field! Thanks for the great ideas!"
- Belinda Gentert, Holstein, NE
"I just had to tell you what an enormous help your website was in successfully planning my daughter’s grad party last June. It was in the works for one year. Thanks to you I was able to get organized ahead of time. There was little to no last minute panicking or rushing around. We did all the food ourselves. I had some great friends and family members who offered to help.
The majority of the 150 invited guests showed up. They stayed longer than we thought they would due to the games and toys we had out for kids to play with.
Somewhere in one of your letters you mentioned root beer floats. Well, they were a big hit at our party. We also had deviled eggs. The part where I goofed was in asking 5 friends to each bring 2 dozen deviled eggs. Well, I meant 2 dozen halves but they thought I meant 2 doz. eggs cut in half. So instead of 120 deviled eggs we ended up with 240 of them! We had many leftover eggs.
Thanks again for all your great advice. I’m looking forward to planning more parties."
