Toasting in the New Year continues to be a popular occasion to have a party. Guild member stores carry a variety of New Year invitations and holiday greeting cards to match the spirit of the occasion. If you are planning an important event and plan to use a custom invitation, it is wise to get your invitations early (no later than the first two weeks of November) since many fine paper companies are overwhelmed with producing holiday greeting cards. If you are planning a party, consider personalized paper cocktail napkins and guest towels. Member stores may also carry noise-makers, crackers and other items to ring in the New Year in style.
