Vintage Dude Party Supplies

We never have any problem finding great party supplies and paper goods for our gal pal birthday parties, but planning a party for our guy pals, well that is a different story. So when we do find something special we have to share. And this time, like so often, it was a visitor who called our attention to these fabulous VINTAGE DUDE party supplies.  Are they not the best?! And now that we know about them, we have found two great sources for buying vintage dude party supplies.  It is always nice to have more than one source so not only can you compare prices, you may also have a slightly different product selection. Be sure to also compare shipping costs. For Vintage Dude party supplies, most are available with two day free Shipping with Amazon Prime. On Shindigz, they qualify for free shipping with a minimum purchase but the pricing is slightly better on their party bundles. It really depends on your needs. Continue Reading →

Polka Dot Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Polka dots, Polka dots everywhere!  Polka dots are definitely in style!  From polka dot invitations to retro polka dot straws to polka dot party decorations to polka dot apparel.  Use dots as the main theme for your next celebration or just incorporate a few here and there for a stylish pop of color and party pizazz.  We like polka dots for birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, Bat Mitzvah and Sweet Sixteen/ Quinceanera celebrations, ladies night out gatherings, and even retirement parties since they add a splash of youthfulness sometimes needed as co-workers enter a new phase of life.

Every time we look at this page  all we think is so, so cute!!!!!

What to Get your Guy for Valentines Day

What to Get your Guy for Valentines Day 

Written by Katie (PIP intern)

We all know Valentine's day is pretty much an excuse to get flowers, chocolates and a romantic dinner out of your guy, but why not treat him to a little something to show him you appreciate all his effort.

Let's be fair here, Valentine's Day is not “Ladies Appreciation Day”( as much as we may like to think it is) so show your guy some love this year with one of these great personalized gifts from A Gift Personalized.  Guy's may not admit it all the time, but they love getting gifts to show we adore and appreciate all they do for us. We've pulled together a great assortment of manly gifts that your guy will love this Valentine's Day. From engraved money clips to a timeless pocket watch, no matter what kind of guy you have, we will share something they will love.

You know we love a great deal, so we please know these gifts are always sales priced and quite often they advertise special savings once you click over to  A Gift Personalized.

These gifts aren't just great Valentine's gifts either, think about father's day, family members birthdays, office gifts, teacher's gifts, grooms men gifts, graduation gifts, anniversaries, and retirement gifts too! If you know you have an event coming up this year and you will need a great guy friendly gift, why not buy now and save yourself some money and a lot of stress.

Party Hearty! 

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!

Chalkboard Invitations, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Party & Home Decor, and  More

It doesn't take more than a minute or two perusing Pinterest to know that vintage is in.  Brides have especially been loving our vintage tin tile  outdoor wedding photography backdrops and magnetic seating charts & escort card boards.  Today we want to make sure every one is aware of the newest trend in vintage — chalkboard everything.  At first we thought it it was our personal obsession after discovering a ceiling tile chalkboard  but after my daughter called and said she painted a chalkboard wall and created 2 chalkboard side tables in her summer apartment rental, I knew I was on to something.  Izzy is always a beat or two ahead of burgeoning trends.  And then today, I opened my email and there waiting for me was a note from Tiny Prints with the subject  “Chalk it up to Birthdays”” featuring their latest fashion forward invitations.

So today we have chosen to  showcase this chic new chalkboard trend in invitations and suggest coordinating your place cards / escort cards, table numbers, party & home decor.  Once we began our quest, we were amazed at how much chalkboard “stuff” is readily available online. Plus, as Izzy could tell you, you can easily transform just about anything into a chalkboard decor yourself using a can of chalkboard paint or chalkboard peel & stick papers.

Just a note of caution – if you DIY, make sure you check the color on the container.  Turns out chalkboard paint comes in both black and green.  I wanted black but mistakenly bought green paint.  I ended up trying the green, not liking it, and repainting my ceiling tile chalkboards with the black  chalkboard spray paint.
