Dear Heloise: For my son’s birthday party, I had invitations made with his picture on them, with him dressed in an outfit that matched the party theme. I also took photos of him holding a thank-you sign. When I ordered the invitations, I ordered thank-you notes with that picture of him.
After the party, I didn’t have to stress about writing a million thank-you notes. I simply sent out the cards. I don’t know if it is proper etiquette, but it saved me a ton of time while still telling my guests “thank you.” — Alicia in San Diego
As busy as any mom is, you get an “OK” from me! — Heloise
