Celebrate the Year of the Pig + Valentines Day 💝

Celebrate the Year of the Pig + Valentines Day

The Chinese New Year celebration of The Year of the Pig begins in just a few weeks. Yes, we have had our Chinese New Year cards up for a while now but until today never really focused on the fact that this is the year of the PIG! We love, ok we are obsessed with, anything and everything having to do with pigs! So not surprisingly, we cannot get enough of Gucci's Year of the Pig Instagram campaign and corresponding Year of the Pig products. The featured photos shot by @frankleboner inspired us to create our own year of the pig campaign focusing on our love for pink pig everything. Continue Reading →

New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies

By: Amanda

There is still plenty of time to organize a fun and festive New Years Eve Party or New Years Day Open House! We must fess up — this is the one party each year we most enjoy hosting. Our favorite theme of all time is “Your Favorite Things” party. We asked each guest to usher in the New Year by bringing something to represent his or her favorite things. Guests brought family favorites such as poppy's butterscotch crunchies, tenderloin in honor of a cook-out we hosted a few years back, and homemade tamales. One year, one of our neighbors, a musician, brought his favorite band along with band groupies and a Hollywood celebrity who showed up in a regal purple suit and honored us all with an impromptu New Year's Eve medley! We always have tons of food, drinks, music, and games displayed in plain view and begging to be played. Charades and Table Topics are perennial favorites. Generally we use New Year's Eve as an excuse to use every dish, bowl, and platter in the house and then we supplement with small plates in every imaginable shape.
As always, Party Idea Pros has done the research for you and has put together the best of the best New Years products available so you can quickly and easily determine what you might need or what you might like for this year's New Year's Celebration. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year filled with peace and joy, love and laughter!

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

The myriad of fabulous rosy pink and rose gold New Year's invitations inspired us to create an entire New Years party theme.  We love the idea of ushering in a rosy new year or starting the new year wearing rose colored glasses, figuratively. Rather than gold and black glitz and glam, the softness of these invitations set the tone for an all round kinder, gentler new year.  We'll toast to that >> Cheers!
