Volunteer Ideas

If you just have to be part of the scene and cant wait until next year consider contacting Comic-Con vendors to see if you can work / volunteer in their booth or better yet just come to San Diego and hang out outside the convention center – the Gaslamp Quarter really heats up in the evenings!  It is rumored that last year more than 50,000 visitors came to San Diego without tickets just to be at the epicenter of fun.  And finally, even if you can't make the journey to San Diego to be a part of the largest pop culture convention on the West Coast, let Party Idea Pros help bring the festivities to you — Host your own Comic-Con Party!

Winter Wonderland Mitten Theme Party

This is undoubtedly one of our most popular party packages, all year round.  Obviously it is a perfect theme for holiday parties, but it also works well for all winter events including bridal & baby showers, adult & children's birthday parties, sweet sixteen parties, quinceanera celebrations, proms, fundraisers and college parties of all kinds. Every year my son's fraternity threw a major Let it Snow philanthropy event complete with snow and lots of girls dressed in adorable snow bunny costumes. This theme is also completely appropriate for classroom holiday parties since mittens are pretty innocuous and non-denominational. Continue Reading →

Soup Swap Party

Another who woulda thunk it moment! January 20th (the 3rd Saturday of January) is this year's 13th Annual Soup Swap. We originally read about this creative party idea in Sara McColl's Yahoo article entitled “The Only Party Invitation We Want This Time of Year” and followed the link chain to the the Soup Swap Facebook page. I guess it shouldn't surprise anyone that we were intrigued. A winter party theme that is easy to organize, allows you to keep your weight loss / get healthy resolutions, has very little cost associated with it. And best of all you get to go home with one of the best party favors ever –  6 quarts of delicious soups, enough for dinner for a week.

Soup Swap Party Supplies

What else you and your 5 guests will need:

  • Six (6) Quarts of delicious homemade freezable soup
  • Ball Wide Mouth Quart Jars with Lids and Bands
  • Each invitee should pour the soup into the individual mason jars.
  • Jars should be labeled with the chef's name, the name of the soup and the date prepared (you can even include the mason jar labels with your invitations)

The host should prepare an extra pot of soup to be served with a loaf of warm bread and a bottle or two of fabulous discount wine from The Wine Spies. Or need it quickly, check out Saucey. Continue Reading →
