Use the “Sullivan Nod.” This is a psychological trick that involves nodding your head and smiling while you are asking a question. For example, while asking, “Would you like another glass of wine?” nod your head and smile while you are asking. It is a tried and true method of eliciting a positive response, and the guest doesn’t even realize that you are doing it. This will work for you as much as seventy percent of the time. Use it. Love it!
For a more intimate and involved-in-the-moment picture, get down to the level of your subjects. Make sure your lens is at the same height as the children’s eyes.
When the children have arrived, instead of your child opening his gift, ask him to open the one meant for charity. Then as a host, talk about what each child has brought for charity and asked why they picked that gift. Also discuss whom the gift would benefit most. Then as a group, maybe you can arrange for them to visit the home or center together to donate the gifts. In this way children will learn about places to donate gifts and how the process worked. Later back at the house, you can start the party with cake and ice cream.
As your child’s party approaches, make sure that they are eating carefully and doing everything they can to keep their blood sugar levels in check. The excitement of the day can change their appetite and not eating can wreak havoc on blood sugar. Make sure that on the day of the party, your child eats a good breakfast and has a snack before everyone arrives. Make sure that they are well rested the night before their party and if at all possible, have your child take a short rest or nap the day of their party.
Put your brand story on your website. Not only will this give you a way to celebrate your new brand, but it will also give you an opportunity to explain your company’s personality right there in the “About” section.
You need one sheet of tissue paper and one cardboard toilet paper roll for each cracker. Begin by laying the one sheet of tissue paper out on a flat surface such as a table. Then, fold the sheet of tissue paper in half. Carefully cut down the fold with a sharp scissor so you have two identical pieces of tissue paper.
When you first begin planning your party you can start to explain to your child how important it is that all the guests enjoy themselves. Very young children can learn to say hello and welcome their guests when they arrive.
