Volunteer Ideas

If you just have to be part of the scene and cant wait until next year consider contacting Comic-Con vendors to see if you can work / volunteer in their booth or better yet just come to San Diego and hang out outside the convention center – the Gaslamp Quarter really heats up in the evenings!  It is rumored that last year more than 50,000 visitors came to San Diego without tickets just to be at the epicenter of fun.  And finally, even if you can't make the journey to San Diego to be a part of the largest pop culture convention on the West Coast, let Party Idea Pros help bring the festivities to you — Host your own Comic-Con Party!

Printable Patriotic Games

Printable Patriotic Games For Your Memorial Day, Independence Day & Labor Day Celebrations

Don't forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day Celebration Parties.  They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.

We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport.  Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.

All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.

S'mores Party Invitations

We love Instagram.  We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints.  How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard!  We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun.  Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →
