Usher in a Rosy New Year!

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

The myriad of fabulous rosy pink and rose gold New Year's invitations inspired us to create an entire New Years party theme.  We love the idea of ushering in a rosy new year or starting the new year wearing rose colored glasses, figuratively. Rather than gold and black glitz and glam, the softness of these invitations set the tone for an all round kinder, gentler new year.  We'll toast to that >> Cheers!

All That Glitters New Years Party

New Years is the one day a year we say bring on the bling and bring on the glitter.  We love all of our new year's party ideas (New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies , Chic New Years Party Decor Made Easy!, and our personal favorite, Usher in a Rosy New Year! ) but truthfully, all could use a little extra bling. That is why we decided to put together this All That Glitter New Years Party. Feel free to mix and match elements from all our New Years party ideas. Continue Reading →

2018 Holiday Card of the Year - Minted

2018 Holiday Card Trends 

It is not too early to order your 2018 Holiday Cards! There are so many holiday cards from which to choose, so where to begin? Well this year, PartyIdeaPros finally got our act together enough to plan in advance for the holiday card season. We contacted some of our favorite merchants so we could actually touch and feel the cards ourselves.  Yes, we admit it — we are ridiculously touchy feely types. Our trash cans are filled with not so cheap cards printed on flimsy paper with fuzzy photos and illegible print. On the other hand, our sample books are chock full of Minted cards and invitations. We love their clear graphics and beautiful eco-friendly papers. This year's Christmas and Hanukkah card trends include rounded corners, back designs, ornament cards, lots and lots of foil an glitter, and are chock full of images of winter greenery. And of course, classic design and colors never go out of style.

Game Night Essentials

This year resolve to re-institute weekly family game night & stock up on game night essentials. After all, families that play together stay together! Yes, summer is our favorite time of year partially because we love game nights! In fact, just yesterday we rolled up the ping pong table and began going through the game closet to see what games are still in good shape,  what games need to be replaced, and started thinking about what new games would be great additions to our current collection. And then this morning we opened our inbox to yet another Zazzle deal.  Although today Zazzle is offering 20% off ping pong paddles, playing cards, poker chips and dart boards, we have seen that discount go as high as 60% OFF which makes personalized game night essentials actually affordable

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine

We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings.  How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, 3 months worth of wine (use code QUALITY10 thru the end 12.115.28 to get 10% OFF!)
