Mark your calendars for Tuesday February 25, 2020

Happy Mardi Gras!!

From the moment your guests step foot into your party you can set the New Orleans tone by playing one of these great Mardi Gras party CD's.  The jazzy music sound unique to New Orleans will encourage your guests to feel festive and dance around your party setting a great vibe for the night.

Imagine having a temporary tattoo or a jester face painting station to encourage kids and adults who didn't come dressed to theme to get involved in the excitement of the holiday.  A photo booth with masks and beads to dress your guests up will bring the New Orleans feel to your celebration and would make great photos to fill up a Mardi Gras themed photo album or to send home with your guests.

For a more cost effective way to entertain your guest, think printable Mardi Gras games. They are a great way to get your guests involved in the fun without breaking the bank.  No matter how you entertain your guests at your Mardi Gras celebration just make sure to channel the jazzy high energy vibe of New Orleans and everyone will let loose and have a great time!

And of course, everyone will know the party is coming to a close when you and your guests adjourn to outside to break the pinata!

Let Party Idea {Pros} inspire you to throw the most festive Mardi Gras Party outside of New Orleans!

Mommy & Me Matching Chevron Pajamas

We are excited to add these fresh and chic red chevron (zig zag) pajamas from  Bedhead Pajamas to our Mommy and Me Pajama selections.

Not only do we love this new chevron pattern, we think the whole matching pajama thing works particularly well during the holiday season when family members from all over the globe gather together in one place to celebrate the holidays and their devotion to family.  Every year at Thanksgiving we all bunk down together and I always bring matching pajamas for all the gals  (I gave up on the guys wearing their matching pj's a few years ago.) And of course, we take an annual family photo.

Update!

If you are still looking for matching mommy & me pajamas, be sure to check out MomMeMatch.com.  All we can say is #toocute

Perfect Grandparent Gift – Adorable Musical Dolls

When I was a little girl, my grandmother bought me a very special musical baby doll that we kept in my bedroom at her house. Even as I outgrew my doll phase, I continued to cherish “my baby”.  I don't remember what tune she played but I do remember dragging that doll around with me everywhere.  She helped me feel safe away from home and adoringly accepted the love I bestowed upon her.  When we were cleaning out my grandparents' house, after they passed away, I found my baby doll carefully tucked away in a dresser drawer, almost as if she was waiting for me to return.  My doll was soft and pink and had a beautiful, delicate face and although she had long lost her wiggle, she never lost her magic.  So when I happened upon these adorable Ashton-Drake musical baby dolls, I fell in love all over again.

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!

CanvasPop Review –

Turn Instagram Photos into Canvas Art

I recently received an invitation  offering PartyIdeaPros.com a $40.00 credit to try out CanvasPop, a service that prints photos onto canvas without the need for additional framing.   To me, it was a no brainer especially since as a compensated affiliate I always like to review the products of our partners before recommending them!  Plus, photo canvas art is one of the latest and greatest decorator trends – my friend Judy just filled 2 entire walls with stunning photo art memories.
