50% off Pack of 450 Printable Games

Printable GamesFor one day only, September 18, 2012, Funsational is offering 50% off its MVP Printable Games Party Collection including new Halloween games.

So sorry – not only has this deal expired, Funsational has closed its doors. But not to worry – Print Games Now has taken up the slack! You can also find lots of fun printable games on Etsy.

Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.

If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.”  Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games.  The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games.  Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush.  So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.

Have Fun and Party Hearty!

Retro Paper Straws

...Retro Paper Straws

Retro Paper straws are all the rage.  They not only add a fun vibe to your table decor, they add color and a dash of whimsy.  As you can see we have featured them individually displayed in mason jars in our patriotic theme parties.  Sometimes we even add an antenna ball on top.  For my own son's Bar Mitzvah we topped MLB antenna balls on coordinating straws and used them as place cards at the entrance to party.  Just yesterday, my sister threw a handful of striped paper straws in a paper cup – just the right touch for her Labor Day barbecue.

Both Swoozies and Amazon has a nice collection of retro paper straws.  Consider using the pink and blue polka dot straws for your next baby shower.  We love the mini bat straws and orange and black stripe straws for Halloween parties.  The red and green stripe straws are a must have for your cookie baking holiday parties.  The yellow stars straws would be an adorable adder to a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party.  And we believe the yellow & grey stripe straws are elegant enough to use at a chic, vintage chalkboard chic wedding reception. Another idea — choose your sorority colors for your next house party.

One more idea for children's birthday parties … choose a variety of straws and cut them into 1 – 2 inch strips. Now string them together to create cute paper necklaces.  The leftovers can be used for  every day, at lunch and dinnertime.

Party Hearty!

Green Lantern Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil's might,

Beware my power… Green Lantern's light!

The Green Lantern is the shared primary alias of several superhero characters (including Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, and Jade) appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring and power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and can be very dangerous. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.  (Thank you Wikipedia!)

Plot summary: A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.

Halloween Silly Bandz

 

Skip the candy!  Pass out Halloween Bandz to all your trick or treaters.  Great for Halloween classroom parties and as costume accessories, too!

What are bandz?

The bandz craze seems to have begun in Birmingham Alabama last year and now bandz are flying off shelves throughout the country. These colorful rubber bands are made of silicone and die molded, come in a variety of shapes and themes, and are manufactured by a handful of vendors. Basically, kids wear them, collect them, and trade them! Bandz come in multi-band packs starting at about $5.00/pack. Best of all, Bandz make for great party favors and napkin rings! (Warning: Choking Hazard! Not recommended for children under 3 years old!) Continue Reading →
