Hi Friends! Hope you’re all well! I have a few shop updates to share with you. First off, we’ll be taking a quick break next week so we’re currently taking orders for events on or after August 15th.

More importantly, our ONLY sale of the year starts TODAY!  Enter code: SUMMERSALE from now until 7/19/2015 for an additional 30% off your entire order!  You can lock in the discount for any party in 2015 now! Remember, we are only taking orders for events on or after August 15, 2015 NO EXCEPTIONS. As always, we will customize any of our products to your liking, but the code is not valid for custom orders.

Don’t Be Tardy for the Party

Hi friends, hope you’re all well! 2015 is off to a great start for us! We’re very grateful to be busy as ever but I wanted to take a break from our schedule to notify you of some recent changes we’ve made that will impact your party planning time line.

At the start of 2015 our standard carrier FedEx nearly tripled their rates on large packages. Tripled!  As a result, we will now be using the post office Standard Post to ship your packages.

The good news is we will still be able to charge the same shipping rate.

The bad news is transit times will now average between 2-9 days depending on your location.

So if you hate paying hefty shipping fees like me, please order at least a month prior to your event.  Express shipping rates will still be available upon request ( average cost of Express Shipping is $37.00 per package for 1-3 day transit ).

While we’re on the subject of shipping, I’m happy to say that we will now be shipping to Australia, Canada, Spain, United Kingdom and Ireland.  International shipping rates average between $35- $50, and will appear when you select your country at checkout.  If you’re country is not listed, please contact us for rates. International packages take between 6-10 days to arrive, so please order accordingly.

We look forward to partying with you this year, and hope to hear from you soon.

Let’s have a Pow Wow!

I know I’m a little late to this party, but I’m just wild about the teepee, boho, pow wow, western, Navajo party theme!  Is that what we’re calling it?  Whatever the name is, it’s perfect!  I love that it works for both genders, a wide age range and just about any occasion.

Here’s just a few of  my favorite products and DIY projects inspired by this theme, along with our new Pow Wow piñatas.

What’s In a Name?

I just realized that I failed to inform you that our shop recently underwent a facelift and a name change.  Apparently that’s crucial information to share with your loyal clients, if you’d like them to find you.

What was once Whack Piñateria or whackpinateria.bigcartel.com

Is now Whack Piñatas or whackpinatas.bigcartel.com.

Anyway, I’m exited to share that our pizza piñata was featured in this months issue of the Food Network Magazine!  While no member of my family is surprised that they didn’t ask me to make edible food, I’m thrilled to be in print. The Kids insert includes great party ideas which inspired me to make my own Pinterest board for our famous pizza piñata.  I hope you get a chance to click through it, before planning your next pizza party.
