A Very Merry Harry Potter Christmas

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.

Ginger Ray Fox Theme Party Supplies

Ginger Ray Fox Theme Party Supplies

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 !

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

Update!

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!

2018 Holiday Card Trends >> Minted Card of the Year

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.
