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.

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.
This afternoon, as we were powering through a Shark Tank marathon, we had an aha moment. Finally, an easy solution to one of our favorite place card display ideas – real grass place card holders. We have suggested turf beds & boxes as place card holders for garden theme parties, golf theme parties and sports theme parties of all kinds. Not only are Fresh Patch real grass boxes easy to work with, by changing the Fresh Patch sleeve you can easily capture almost any decor style. The dark oak color works for sporty parties & those going for a very traditional look. The light colored pine sleeves are not only great on their own but they can be easily painted or stenciled to reflect just about any party theme. Think spring flowers for Easter (you can even hide custom painted eggs in the grass) or red white and blue stripes for patriotic parties. Use the stainless steel tray for an industrial modern look. These real grass place card holders or display boxes are perfect for weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, and fundraisers. Whether you are hosting an elegant old world theme event, barn hoe down, or Kentucky Derby party, real grass place card holders will wow your guests.
Here are a few images of real grass place card display ideas for inspiration that are now so so easy to DIY with Fresh Patch real grass boxes.
