Patty Sachs' Party News

Web-sites for your party planning 

Party and event planning on the Internet is raging and outraging! There is little that one cannot find in Cyberspace whether it be product, service or the perfect party advice. In the process of surfing and searching I have discovered hundreds of sites that are valuable for both the beginner or the pro. Retailers can find new products to put into their stores, for more profits and customer satisfaction. Party planners can be clever and creative beyond belief with tools, supplies and talents just a key stroke or two away. One can get buried in the heap of help available.

Now let’s go surfing!

For Invitations and RSVPs on-line: These sites allow you to join, create and send invitations, collect RSVPs on your own webpage, send maps, directions even collect dues, entrance fees and donations. Guests can log in, read updates and sign your guestbook to leave comments.

and keep the details current and available

to all of your guests on this site.
