The last time I hosted an election night viewing party with friends was back in 2000 when our friends resignedly left around midnight, with no winner decided. (It’s a good thing or they might have been camped out on our living room floor for a week.) I haven’t held one since, but since this year’s election night could be an historic moment for our country — and the end to an incredibly stressful election cycle — I’d like to share it in the comfort of some like-minded friends. I’m sure I’m not alone here. So I took a look at some digital election night party invitations...

The most beautiful Disney invitations, and they happen to be online.

If you have a Disney crazy kid (do I need a pun in here about kids not being able to “let it go?”) you’re going to love this one: Paperless Post, our go-to site for high quality online invitations and stationery has just announced a new line of Paperless Post Disney ecards.

Interestingly, the same free Makr app is different whether you’re using iPad or iPhone, including how it looks and what you can do with it. I’ll cover both here, but keep that quirk in mind when you download it. (Because...
