New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies

By: Amanda

There is still plenty of time to organize a fun and festive New Years Eve Party or New Years Day Open House! We must fess up — this is the one party each year we most enjoy hosting. Our favorite theme of all time is “Your Favorite Things” party. We asked each guest to usher in the New Year by bringing something to represent his or her favorite things. Guests brought family favorites such as poppy's butterscotch crunchies, tenderloin in honor of a cook-out we hosted a few years back, and homemade tamales. One year, one of our neighbors, a musician, brought his favorite band along with band groupies and a Hollywood celebrity who showed up in a regal purple suit and honored us all with an impromptu New Year's Eve medley! We always have tons of food, drinks, music, and games displayed in plain view and begging to be played. Charades and Table Topics are perennial favorites. Generally we use New Year's Eve as an excuse to use every dish, bowl, and platter in the house and then we supplement with small plates in every imaginable shape.
As always, Party Idea Pros has done the research for you and has put together the best of the best New Years products available so you can quickly and easily determine what you might need or what you might like for this year's New Year's Celebration. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year filled with peace and joy, love and laughter!

Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Daniel Tiger Birthday Party

Welcome to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood! Daniel, the son of Daniel Striped Tiger from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and his friends Katerina Kittycat and O the Owl cannot wait to help you celebrate your little one’s birthday. To get started, try a Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Party in a Box exclusively from Birthday Express on Amazon and then supplement your Daniel Tiger birthday party with special touches from some of our favorite Etsy sellers.

Just a quick note on Party Idea Pros approach to children’s parties. 

We have an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  Keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoopsbeach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guests should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Winter Wonderland Mitten Theme Party

This is undoubtedly one of our most popular party packages, all year round.  Obviously it is a perfect theme for holiday parties, but it also works well for all winter events including bridal & baby showers, adult & children's birthday parties, sweet sixteen parties, quinceanera celebrations, proms, fundraisers and college parties of all kinds. Every year my son's fraternity threw a major Let it Snow philanthropy event complete with snow and lots of girls dressed in adorable snow bunny costumes. This theme is also completely appropriate for classroom holiday parties since mittens are pretty innocuous and non-denominational. Continue Reading →
