Fox Theme Party Planning, Ideas, Decor & Supplies

Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states.  It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo.  In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and  the Today Show.  This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.

Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see the fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art.  We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY.

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.
