A tranquil water background reflects burnished fall foliage on the Floating Leaves invitation ($57.90 for 75), and iridescent snowflakes dapple wintry Chill Out invitations ($57.90 for 75). A stylized interpretation of tie-dye lends a modern touch to the Psychedelic ’70s RSVP-wranglers ($57.90 for 75). The catalog also stocks cards for anniversary parties, bridal and baby showers, and wisdom tooth removal benefits.

Special events include teen nights, holiday parties, and glow bowling, during which black lights draw extra attention to neon bowling balls and freshly bleached pinafores.
While her husband was in Iraq, KinderJam founder El Brown struggled to entertain her toddler with high-energy, enriching activities that would prepare him for kindergarten. Drawing on her master's degree in early-childhood education and more than a decade as an educator for children around the globe, Brown devised a program that has since become a preschool franchise reaching more than 1,300 children in four countries. The KinderJam curriculum, designed to mesh with NAEYC framework and Developmentally Appropriate Practice standards, fosters creativity and school skills with vibrant props, creative movement, and boisterous music. For younger participants, weekly BabyJam sessions strengthen bonds between infants and parents through music-fueled tickling, cuddling, and trigonometry-proof analysis.
