When it comes to weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, or any special event, it’s the details that really set it apart. One of the details that may not get as much attention is the escort cards or place cards. Escort cards let guests know which table they’re seated at; Place cards are on the table, letting guests know where to sit. Many times these cards are available for free from the venue. But with just a bit of thought and creativity, the escort card display or place cards can be another detail that wows your guests! Here are some of our favorite ideas.

Planning a wedding or bar/bat mitzvah can be stressful enough – you don’t need to worry about your skin too! Whatever your skincare concern – wrinkles, acne, discoloration, or sensitivity – there is help! Here’s my personal story.
I remember the day vividly. I was going in for my annual dermatologist appointment with one thing on my mind – WRINKLES! It’s such a fast progression from worrying about pimples to wrinkles – I was completely unprepared! So I asked the Doctor – “What cream do you recommend that is effective for getting rid of wrinkles?” And I’ll never forget her response. “Your wrinkles won’t go away with any cream. Your best prevention method is to start early with Botox.” Whooooah – not the answer I was expecting. I was barely 30 at the time.
Spoiler Alert: My dermatologist was wrong!

I have nothing against Botox or Juvi-Derm. However I wasn’t ready to go down that path. I was not prepared to completely write off the multi-billion dollar skincare industry as ineffective. Not yet.
Since then, I’ve tried a number of products with some success, but not the success I was looking for. And then I took notice of changes in some of my friends. I saw firsthand that there was an alternative to Botox that actually worked. That alternative is skincare products from Rodan + Fields. Seeing these real before & after shots intrigued me enough to finally get me to pick up the phone.
These are real results after 5 weeks using the REDEFINE (anti-aging) regimen and exfoliator.
Suffer from acne? Here are results after only 2 weeks of using the UNBLEMISH regimen. READ MORE ......→
