Planner Offers "Budget Bash" Book
Veteran event planner Andrea Wyn Schall, who has organized such high-end events as the Screen Actors Guild Awards, offers the downloadable e-book "Budget Bash—Simply Fabulous Events on a Budget."

The book offers a special section devoted to Halloween-theme parties cueing on the color orange; the menu includes vegetable crudités with orange walnut dipping sauce, cinnamon- and maple-smoked cedar-planked salmon over wild rice salad with Mandarin oranges and dates, and a mini pumpkin custard dessert.

Video Name Badges Offered by TLC
Video Name Badges from TLC Creative are wearable media players that deliver a company's message through professional video content, the distributor says. The badges can be used to promote new products, encourage interaction between contacts, break the ice at trade shows and offer news updates. The 2.4-inch screen relies on a rechargeable battery and offers an 8-hour average playback time. The thin, lightweight unit plays full-motion videos and images; its magnetic fastener does not harm clothing, according to the distributor.
