“As a college student, I can create iFlipCard Quiz and answer card easy and fast and I can have them with me anytime where I can use them right up to the exam.  College students need a simple app to replace their 3×5 cards writing Questions on one side and “flipping” them over to see the Answer(s).”

The app is designed to help party hosts create invitations, send invitations and involve party VIPs and guests seeking easy-rapid ways to send invitations, receive guests and allow guests and VIPs to either view party pics and videos or VIPs to add pics to the party.

Here is an independent review of iPartygram. “With a variety of different background photos and images available through the app, you can choose an image that suits the theme or occasion of your party. You can add all the information you need to the party invitation and it’s the perfect opportunity to let guests know if the party has a certain dress code, theme, or whether they should bring their own drinks. You can also use the “Notes” and “Reminders” sections to give guests a date by which they should RSVP, saving you the hassle of having to chase people up later.


When sending invitations to guests, you can select the box marked “VIP” if you want that guest to be able to upload their own photos to the party section within iPartyGram.

You can either send the invitation to each guest individually with your own customized message, or send the same PDF file to multiple people. To keep each individual’s email address private, enter your own email address in the “To:” field, then enter the other recipients’ addresses in the “BCC:” field. That way, when guests receive the invitations, they only see your email address, and other guests’ emails stay hidden. The graphic format means that guests can easily print out and take the invitation with them to the party, so they have all the details on hand.

When guests receive their invitations, it contains a unique ID number. To access the party details, all they have to do is download the iPartyGram app or log on to the website, and enter the ID number in the Guest Login section, then they can access the party details and, if they are VIP guests, upload their own photos.

iPartyGram is a versatile app that makes the party planning process simple, quick, and cost-effective. It allows you to spend less time on practical tasks, like sending invitations, leaving you with more time to focus on the big event.”

Party Cleanup Tips from iPartygrams

Many people spend weeks planning a party, only to trip up when it comes to the post-party cleanup. Cleaning up after a party can be a long and unpleasant process. Usually, you feel tired, and the task might seem daunting, but with a little forward planning and some common sense, you can complete the post-party cleanup with minimum fuss in minimal time.

1 – Get help

Ask one or more party guests in advance to stay behind and help with the cleanup. The more people help to tidy up after the party, the quicker the job will be done. You can speed up the process further by designating certain tasks to certain people.

2 – Work systematically

Tackle one thing at a time, for example clean away drink-related items, then food, then deal with dirty linens. Cleaning up one thing at a time will focus your efforts, and help you feel like you’ve achieved more than trying to clean everything at once.

3 – Make space

If you’re providing guess with food and suspect you will have left-overs, make space in your fridge before the party starts so you don’t have to worry about reorganizing storage once the party is underway or is over.

4 – Clean as you go

Start the cleanup process as the party begins winding down. You don’t have to bring out the vacuum, but you can start cleaning away glasses, cutlery and other debris to make your job easier once everyone has left.

5 – Create a designated trash area

Create a designated trash area and tell guests where it is when they arrive. People are less likely to leave their trash lying around if they know where the garbage is.

6 – Clean smart

Double or triple-line the garbage can so that as one bag gets filled, you simply take it out and start filling the next. This streamlines the cleaning process and helps you avoid an overflowing trash can during the party. Once your guests have left and the cleanup operation has properly begun, take a liner with you to the rubbish, instead of bringing rubbish out to the trash can.

7 – Prepare cleaning materials before the party

Cleaning before a party might sound counter-intuitive (after all, aren’t your guests just going to come in and create a mess again?), however it can really help your post-party cleanup operation. Make sure the sink and dishwasher are clear of any items and ready to load. You should also make sure your trash can and recycling box is empty, so you minimize the amount of rubbish you have to deal with afterwards.

8 – Help yourself

Purchasing disposable dinnerware for your party guests, such as paper plates and plastic cutlery, minimizes the risk of your own crockery being broken. It also make the cleanup operation a lot smoother, as you can just throw away used items, without having to deal with washing up.

9 Use nature

Before you start cleaning, open a few windows or light some candles to get rid of the smell of food, drink and guests. You should also take all trash bags outside instead of leaving them in your house or apartment overnight, as they will cause an odor in your home.

10 – Clean safely

If you plan to keep the left-overs for yourself and your family, refrigerate them as soon as possible. They’ve been sitting in a party room for a few hours, so the longer you leave them; the more hazardous they could be to eat.


Party Planing Ideas Sponsored by

Ideas for party planning

Parties cover a huge range of events and celebrations, and if you’ve been tasked with planning one, you might be wondering where to start. As well as birthdays, national holidays, corporate events and life changes, you might want to throw a party just to see friends.

When looking for party planning ideas, the best place to start is to think about the nature of the event. The kind of party will depend on what you’re celebrating, as well as the age and the background of the attendees. For example, a kids’ party will be very different from an office Christmas party, which in turn will be very different from a student housewarming party. Each different party will require different entertainment, a different venue, possibly even different food.

Key areas to consider when trying to think of ideas for party planning include:

  • Guests
  • Budget
  • Venue
  • Food
  • Entertainment

You also need to consider whether you’re going to ask other people to help out with the preparations or during the event itself. Each factor influences at least one other – for example, the number of guests you want to invite to the party will dictate the size of venue you need. The food and entertainment will depend on the number of guests, and whether these things are provided by the venue. Every area will be influenced by your budget.

Within each area, you have important decisions to make. If you want to provide food at the party, you need to plan whether it will be home-cooked, bought in advance from a store, or provided especially by professional caterers.

Entertainment is also important, and it’s usually a good idea to provide a range of entertainment that will suit as many guests as possible. This might include providing music, and lighting, as well as party games. For kids’ parties, you might want to consider hiring external child entertainers or equipment like a bouncy castle.

If you’re struggling to find ideas for party planning, try theming the party to a certain occasion. For example, if you’re planning a birthday party, try theming it to the decade the person celebrating their birthday was born. Parties celebrating national holidays or events are also easy to theme. Theming a party can make it easier to select food and entertainment, and can also provide a more interactive experience for guests, especially if costumes are involved.

If you plan to host a party with costumes, or you want guests to bring food, drinks or other items, you need to give them enough notice so they can organize this themselves. Sending out reminders or notes about the party is best done with the invitations so that people have plenty of time to plan what they are going to wear or bring, and they are less likely to forget.

Depending on the event, you might want to provide your guests with something to thank them for coming to the party. Although this is something you might send out after the party, it’s still an important factor in the party planning process and needs to be organized alongside the event itself. Ideas for guests include thank-you notes, which you can send after the event, or party favors, which you can prepare in advance and hand out during the event.

Whatever kind of party you throw, forward planning and good organization are the key to a successful event. If you spend time on the event in advance, everything will come together on the evening, leaving you free to enjoy the party alongside the other guests.
