On May 30, 2014 The National Museum of Dance will hold a reception for this exhibition. You’d be a fool not to take a look at this event as it’s free and open to the public.

We often find ourselves literally running through life. Slow down and take some time to enjoy things in your city. Many exhibits are free of charge and showcase marvelous talent. When you are too tired to dance (literally and figuratively), just stop and stroll through an exhibit like this, even if it’s online.

If you live close enough, The National Museum of Dance is located at 99 South Broadway in Saratoga Spring, NY. For more information about the Museum and its programs, visit their website or call 518-584-2225.

Our ballet slippers are always leaping from one mailbox to the next, notifying friends of birthday celebrations, other parties, or just to say hi. After all, isn’t that the best kind of mail to receive?

The Big Egg Hunt is ON!

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

INV_bluebutterfly_textSpring is here! Flowers will be blooming! Butterflies will soon follow!

Have you heard about the Big Egg Hunt in NYC? Fabergé is sponsoring the hunt that will benefit both NYC school children through Studio in a School and international conservation efforts with Elephant Family, an organization aimed at protecting the endangered Asian elephant and its habitat. The highest bid for a particular egg, when writing this blog, is $11,000. This benefit is sure to be a success, even if you don’t tally in the fun.

The egg hunt started April 1st and you’ll have until the 25th to find all 250 eggs around the five boroughs. The really neat thing about this egg hunt is that there are apps to download so you can search for the eggs using your smartphone. Genius. This ensures kids and adults stay engaged in the game.

They did this same7 hunt last year in London and it was such a success, they brought it to NYC.

Check out some of the photos of these eggs; they are incredible. I haven’t seen more than a dozen, but this one to the left is my favorite so far.

So if you live in NYC or even close, I think this is worth a visit to the big city.

We are getting ready for spring here at Letters from Lilly and think that our butterfly design is great for graduation parties, birthdays, engagement parties or any other spring gathering for that matter. See all our designs at Letters from Lilly.
