Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

We fell in love with this great lobster party supply bundle that includes Oval Melamine Plates, (4) Butter Dipping Bowls and (1) Pack of 20 Napkins. Not surprisingly we now felt compelled to create an entire summer party around these festive products that could work perfectly for a Father's Day celebration, a 4th of July Party, or as an excuse to gather your friends and family together for no reason at all.

Most Importantly, The Lobster

Since it is summer, do not, we repeat do not fire up your stove and slave for hours trying to create the perfect 3-4 course lobster fest.  It is just too hot outside and truthfully, not worth your time and effort. Especially, since there is a terrific alternative that even if you slave for hours in the kitchen, will taste better than anything you can pull together yourself.  Instead simplify your life by ordering the lobster and all the fixings from Lobster Anywhere.  They will deliver everything from the lobsters and the lobster pot to the shell crackers, seafood forks, and lobster bibs.  Now add some chowder and crab cakes or sea scallops wrapped in bacon for appetizers and finish off with yummy key lime pie for dessert.  One stop shop with overnight delivery to ensure everything is as fresh as possible.

Fathers Day Fun

Looking for a fun and unique way to celebrate Father's Day this year? Go retro and throwback the clock to the 1990's.  Think Legends of the Hidden Temple or Double Dare or any other 90's TV shows that today's younger dads grew up watching. Now you can not only introduce Dad's favorite show to the next generation, Dad can act like a kid again, and get away with it.  Plan ahead to create a fun obstacle course and backyard game emporium that the whole family can participate in and continue to enjoy over and over again throughout the summer It can be as simple as using pool noodles, duct tape & wooden dowels as this dad did in the video below.

Game Night Essentials

This year resolve to re-institute weekly family game night & stock up on game night essentials. After all, families that play together stay together! Yes, summer is our favorite time of year partially because we love game nights! In fact, just yesterday we rolled up the ping pong table and began going through the game closet to see what games are still in good shape,  what games need to be replaced, and started thinking about what new games would be great additions to our current collection. And then this morning we opened our inbox to yet another Zazzle deal.  Although today Zazzle is offering 20% off ping pong paddles, playing cards, poker chips and dart boards, we have seen that discount go as high as 60% OFF which makes personalized game night essentials actually affordable

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 →

Kids Summer Camp Essentials

Kids Summer Camp Essentials

Loving these children's summer camp essentials and ideas from Minted! They are all #toocute. And since it is already mid-May, it is none to early to place your order for your campers' personalized stationery, journals, and name labels. And don't forget the stamp!

Summer camp is the place that children have the time to step back from their daily routines and discover and/or explore their passions. It is also the time for many kids to take a break from technology and revert to old fashioned pen and pencil. Although, at the time, letters home can be a source of parent consternation, we promise, if you save those letters, they will elicit peels of laughter for many years to come. We recently found one of Izzy's famed letter's home that simply read “COME GET ME NOW!” on her customized camp stationery. The fact that we received the letter at least 2 weeks after it was written proved to have been a good thing. By the time these hovering parents called the camp, all was good!  Continue Reading →
