This one is for you, Joe! All of us here at PartyIdeaPros LOVE donuts. So when we were challenged by a reader to come up with 5 ways to serve donuts this holiday season, it was challenge on! Personally, we would probably glitter up our donuts with red, green, blue, silver and gold edible glitters, depending on what holiday we are celebrating that day! Add or subtract edible glitter, to taste (and yes, pun intended!). Continue Reading →

There is still time to order and print a whole slew of printable games for your Christmas & New Years celebrations!
Every year at this time we begin to obsess about this year's Christmas theme. Most years we opt for a classic look but other years we have been inspired by color and/or current events and/or pop culture. The year the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality for all, we embraced a #LoveWins Christmas and decorated everything rainbow including our Christmas Tree.

As always, our visitors lead us to some of our very best gets. Not long ago we came across an image of this fabulous fox print but had no luck finding the creator or a source. And then today, one of our visitors let us know they found these elusive Ginger Ray fox theme party supplies on Amazon. We cannot be more excited. Since then, we have done a bit of research and learned that Ginger Ray is based in the UK and has an entire line of adorable party goods. As it turns out, we even feature her pop art superhero party goods on our superhero party inspiration package. Keep checking back because now that we found her, we are pretty much obsessed & have created a new tag especially for Ginger Ray!
As you are probably well aware, the fox is the hottest trending animal party theme not only because it is adorable, this woodland look works great for birthday parties, baby showers, weddings and even foxy holiday parties. We are also thinking of ordering some plates and napkins to use for our Thanksgiving appetizers and dessert courses (we tend to use our good china for the main course). #toocute
Six years later, woodland animal themes are still as popular as ever. Although very few supplies in this original Ginger Ray Fox print are still available, they did recently release a new botanical print perfect for woodland themed baby showers. And yes, we may e even more obsessed with this print than the original fox print. It is a bit more sophisticated for the modern mom-to-be!
2019 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.

It is that time of year. School is starting and pledge season follows shortly. So we thought it might be the perfect time to once again share our hands down favorite Pi Beta Phi arrow gift.
For years we have been proclaiming that if we could own one and only one piece of jewelry that screamed Pi Beta Phi, it would be these stunning Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Arrow Necklaces. It is amazing how one small icon can embody the essence of a Pi Phi woman: strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet subtle, delicate, and feminine. This beautiful arrow necklace is a must have for any Pi Beta Phi, pledge or alum. Buy one for yourself and one for your big and little sister. Not only will the arrow necklaces remind you of where you have been but it will also keep you pointed in the right direction going forward.
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. And we realize things aren’t going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That’s where these printable holiday games come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own holiday party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours during long holiday gatherings.
