The myriad of fabulous rosy pink and rose gold New Year's invitations inspired us to create an entire New Years party theme. We love the idea of ushering in a rosy new year or starting the new year wearing rose colored glasses, figuratively. Rather than gold and black glitz and glam, the softness of these invitations set the tone for an all round kinder, gentler new year. We'll toast to that >> Cheers!
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 →
This might be our cutest idea yet and we are so excited! We fell in love with this puppy kisses invitation and challenged ourselves to find party supplies that would compliment it. We decided to stick with green as the accent color which can work for both baby boy and baby girl showers.
Creating a gender reveal party post has been on the top of our “to do” list for ages. Since we still have not gotten around to creating our own, we thought we would at least share some ideas from one of our “go to” party suppliers, Windy City Novelties. And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.
What are Gender Reveal Parties?
Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower. At the gender reveal party, the guests, and sometimes the parents themselves, will find out the sex of their unborn child. The purpose of the party is to share the news and celebrate with close friends and family.
What could be easier? Are you like us? We plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (Except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren’t going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That’s where these printable games for St Patricks Day come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained at your next Irish themed party. Continue Reading →
