Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies 

How could we possibly spend an entire week in Paris and not put together an inspiration board for a Paris theme party.  I am personally hosting dinner club in early December and am definitely taking the opportunity to celebrate all things Parisian from the food to the party decor to the place card holders.  Right now, I think I will send out the featured Parisian Party Invitation,  use the Chic Paris Party Cupcake Kit from Beau-coup (not to serve cupcakes in but rather to use for serving hors d'oeuvres), and will probably swing for either these cute Le Parisian Napkin Holders or Mini Eiffel Tower Place Card Holders to add a tad of  kitsch to an otherwise elegant table.

The Giving Tree Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Monica texted me today and challenged Party Idea {Pros} to come up with a few ideas for a thoughtful yet playful The Giving Tree theme event the school is hosting for Grandparents Day. I didn't have much time to pull it all together but I do believe this is a good starting point to give the committee direction and to get their creative juices flowing.

Any of the trees, real or not, will work well on a buffet.  The least expensive way to approach the event is to fill a large clear vase with red apples and then go into the back yard and gather some tree branches to add to the vase or simply use apples at different heights to decorate your table.  Other options include this artificial apple tree priced at just $33.99  as well as living celebration trees  which you can give away as gifts at the end of the night or plant on campus. We always like bonsai trees since they herald good fortune and happiness. We also think this white cardboard DIY wishing tree kit is really cute  and the accessories are available in many colors including blue and yellow.  Whatever you choose, we would recommend picking up a few The Giving Tree (it's even available in Hebrew!)books and propping them up on the buffet.

Gift choice will vary depending on your budget.  The most economical would be  either the heart shape plantable seeds (grandparent <3) or flower shape plantable seeds.  you could display them in a bucket or hang them from the buffet and/or centerpiece trees.  Simple, thoughtful, cute!  We also like the symbolism behind this miniature watering can filled with plantable seeds.  Personalized plantable magic wishing beans start at just 59 cents each or can be packaged in a cute flower pot or watering can for an additional ~$2.00 each. We also like these chocolate covered pretzel sticks – they remind us of tree branches.

Hope this helps.

Pink Zebra Born to Shop Birthday Party Supplies

We haven't re-visited our Zebra Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies party package in many moons but no matter how much time has passed it always puts a smile on our face. How cute are a these Pink Zebra Born to Shop birthday party supplies! This theme is playful and bright and has become a classic look for a birthday party (including Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera & Bat Mitzvah), bridal and baby showers, bachelorette party, and just about any ladies night out celebration.

We began our latest quest with this great born to shop cocktail napkin and back filled from there.  When we came across a coordinating pink zebra party invitation we knew we had to share it.

African Inspired Safari Theme Nursery Ideas

Our obsession with the royal family continues! Prince William just announced that Prince George's bedroom will be decorated with jungle safari theme nursery decor, in deference to his family’s love of Africa. “I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room … “We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” the new dad said in CNN’s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”

So knowing that so many mom's-to-be look to the young royals for style ideas, whether it be their choice of swaddling blankets, strollers, or even baby names,  we have put together an inspiration board with lots of adorable safari theme nursery decor ideas.  Any of these nursery essentials would all be much appreciated gifts at any African inspired safari theme baby shower or even an elephant or giraffe theme baby shower.
