Good Things Come in Small Packages >> A Party Theme with a Charitable Twist

Recently we came across a question asking for ideas for a “good things come in small packages” themed bat mitzvah.  Seldom do we come across new great theme ideas, so not surprisingly, we were hooked from the get go especially since there seemed to be so many positive ways to incorporate a lovely message into the celebration. Although we have not developed an absolutely complete theme package, this post is fairly comprehensive and covers most elements needed to put together a great party with an emphasis on charitable giving.  This unique party theme would also be perfect for a baby shower, school fundraiser, quinceanera celebration, or birthday party or retirement party for anyone of petite stature.

If you and your family have not yet seen Disney Pixar's Coco, we highly recommend you head on over to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video! This is easily one of our all time favorite movies. Coco is an educational, adorable and heart-warming animated film about Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you and your children are a fan of the movie seriously consider using the movie to inspire your next birthday party. Not only will your party be visually brilliant, its beautiful meaningful message will set your party apart from the rest, in only good ways! (This is a great theme for classroom parties as well).

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 →

Let's start the new year off right with a resolution to be more environmentally friendly in all aspects of our lives, including our parties! Eco-Friendly party favors and confetti can add a beautiful and environmentally safe element to your party planning. Currently there is a wide variety of Eco-Friendly party supplies that are all made of renewable natural resources. These Eco-Friendly products can add festive splashes of color for practically any kind of event, such as weddings, baby showers, graduation parties, and more. And the best part about it, is that these non-GMO (genetically modified organism) products won’t harm the Earth. These Eco-Friendly favors and confetti are embedded with high quality seeds, which can be planted, so the favors and confetti turns into flowers, plants and herbs. Plantable party supplies are a wonderful way to add thoughtful, eco-friendly ideas to your festivities.

Hats On! Hat Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Hats On! Hat Theme Party Planning, Ideas, and Supplies

Don your hats ladies, it is time to party!

A hat or fascinator party is a perfect party theme for Ladies Night Out Parties, Bachelorette Parties (Hen’s Night In), Bridal Showers, Birthday Luncheons, Retirement Parties, and even Quinceanera Celebrations, Teen Parties, Sweet Sixteen Parties, and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations (especially if you add a charitable element to your celebration).

I even hosted a wildly successful hat theme party while in college.  Like costumes, hats make great conversation starters without the fuss of finding the perfect costume.  My date and I simply took a ride to the local Burger King and picked up a pre-party snack and 2 Burger King crowns. 

One more idea — dress your holiday party up this year — add a hat element and leave your Christmas sweaters in mothballs in the back of the closet  or in the bottom dresser drawer!

The Inspiration for this party

Kate Middleton's FascinatorsKate Middleton's FascinatorsKate Middleton's Fascinators

Kate Middleton, Fashion Icon & The Fascinator

Women across the world are wanting them and wearing them!

The fascinator is the new must have fashion accessory! What is it? It is an ornate hair accessory that features feathers, beads, flowers and other fancy trimmings. Kate (or should we say Princess Catherine) seems to favor fascinators with feathers. We like them all. Not only do fascinators add a whole lot of flair to any outfit, a nice fascinator does not have to set you back a pretty penny which is good because you will definitely want to own more than one!

Where to wear them? Everywhere!

  • Planning a ladies night out or bachelorette party? Call attention to yourselves by wearing these fun and festive head pieces.
  • Planning a birthday luncheon? Ask all your friends to wear fascinators or hats or any type!
  • Attending an afternoon wedding? Don a fascinator — the latest British trend to storm America's shores. 

Let's start with the hats
