Hi, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. Monday comes around fast, doesn't it? Oh well. It's a big week in the editorial department. Lots of graduations, including my son Andrew's from Neshaminy High on Wednesday (which means I have to write Wednesday's edition tomorrow, since I'm taking off). But enough about me and my schedule. Enjoy these ideas and send your feedback directly to me at: email@example.com. It may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.

Buffet Station The Pitch: Helping a client plan a family reunion, corporate picnic, pig roast or other fun outdoor event? (OK, granted, the pig roast is not fun for the pig.) Well, HumphreyLine (asi/62050) is offering the Buffet Kit on sale at $3.30-R, 250 until 7/31/12. It includes a flying disc, stadium cup, paper plate and utensils in a mesh bag. And who doesn't love HumphreyLine and their made-in-the-USA products? Click here and check it out: http://humphreyline.com/. The Bottom Line: All together now.
Flippin' Fun The Pitch: I love a great beverage vessel.Crown Products (asi/47700) presents the brand-new 18-oz. Flip Top Freedom tumbler, made from double-walled acrylic. This is perfect for restaurants, events, bars, souvenir shops and more. Plus, you can get it for as low as $5.99-C until 8/31/12. Check it out: http://www.crownprod.com/. The Bottom Line: Drinks on us.
Ducks in a Row The Pitch: On Saturday, we went to New Hope, PA for some dinner and, of course, shopping. I bought a huge rubber duck for our pool at one of those specialty soap shops and we named it Mother Ducker. Yesterday, we had friends over and their 5-year-old daughter asked if she could take it home so, obviously, I said sure! Everybody loves a fun rubber ducky. In fact,CelebriDucks (asi/44398) has built its business on that very fact. You have to check out all their cool ducks and, in particular, I like theirCabernet Canards, which would be a unique idea for wineries and such. Plus, five percent of proceeds from sales of Cabernet Canards goes to Roots of Peace (www.rootsofpeace.org). For more info, click here: http://www.celebriducks.com/. The Bottom Line: Get quackin'.
Eye-Popping Detail The Pitch: If your client requests a pen, why not get a little goofy? Points of Light (asi/78825) offers the Goofy Pop Pen with popping eyeballs. You can't help but smile when you see it. This is great for school fundraisers, pediatricians' offices, day camps and any office environment in need of a little lightening up. Pricing starts at: 100; $1.94-R. See it here: http://www.polpromo.com/. The Bottom Line: Squeezy, breezy.
