Is your child (or you) a Lego fanatic? If so, a Lego birthday party may be an ideal theme for this year’s birthday party. It is unique, colorful, and yes, playful.

The minute we discovered the featured Lego Party favor boxes, cookies & candies on Beau-coup, our “go to” party favor site, we knew we had to find anything and everything related to hosting a Lego theme birthday party. As we searched for the best of the best in Lego theme party supplies, we realized that often, probably due to trademark, copyright, and other legal restrictions, some of the best Lego party supplies are referred to as blocks, brix, and even blox. Whatever the name, we promise your guests will still recognize them as Legos. Continue Reading →

Where the Wild Things Are: A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are – A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

(1928-2012)

“The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him and it was still hot.”  Where the Wild Things Are

As many of you already know, we are huge fans of Maurice Sendak.  For more than forty years, the books Maurice Sendak has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's literature is and should be. The New York Times has recognized that Sendak's work “has brought a new dimension to the American children's book and has helped to change how people visualize childhood.” Parenting recently described Sendak as “indisputably, the most revolutionary force in children's books.”

To honor Mr. Sendak's memory we think the most appropriate tribute is making sure you have at least one Sendak book in your personal library.  Here are a few of our favorites!  Just scroll over the book cover for the title and click on the picture for a summary of each book.

Sofia the First Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Your own little princess-in-training will be so excited to celebrate her birthday with a Sofia the First birthday party theme. And from a mom's perspective, we love that this theme reinforces the notion that most important to becoming a princess is having the characteristics of honesty, loyalty, compassion and grace. It is not the title that makes one worthy of the role.  Our goal is to make sure your Sofia the First birthday party reflects those ideals, too. Continue Reading →

Pirate Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Let Party Idea {Pros} walk you through every step of your child's pirate birthday party including pirate party invitations,  decor, food ideas,  pirate fun and games and even pirate costumes for children.

Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoops, beach balls,, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Save money – skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Many of the products here also work for pirate theme baby showers!

For a great kids pirate theme birthday party there are only six essentials

  1. A great pirate invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
  2. Great pirate theme paper goods
  3. A  cluster or two of  pirate theme latex balloons mixed with some fabulous Pirate Balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present)
  4. A toy treasure chest or pirate ship, and gold coins for  your centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the pirate party kits – you can always make them a little less commercial by adding balloons and some of your own pirate accessories.
  5. For the food –  keep it simple:  serve goldfish crackers and trail mix  in a pirate skull goblet,   use fish shaped cookie cutter to cut cheese, tea style sandwiches, and fruit or skewer small pieces of fruit onto pirate sword food picks,   and for dessert serve  pirate cookies , crispy pirate pops, or the classic decorated birthday cake/ cupcakes.
  6. Four  activities:  a “doing” activity such as a home “treasure hunt” a craft activity such as  decorating a treasure chest, and a game activity  like, “capture the pirate flag” or “pirate tug of war”,  and to end the party you absolutely must break the pirate ship pinata.  As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.
