Snowman Theme Girls 1st Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Snowman Theme Girls 1st Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Today we received an email seeking ideas for a snowman theme girl's 1st birthday party.  We loved the idea and once we started searching, we had trouble reigning ourselves in.  Although we gained inspiration from some of our other  Winter Wonderland  party packages, this party needed to be different – we wanted it to be pink!

We always like to start with the invitations because to us invitations are like the title of a paper – they set the tone for the entire party. We particularly like the wording of the light blue and pink card inviting guests to join them for Winter Onederland Fun!  How adorable is that for a January winter birthday party!

Next we searched for paper party goods.  We could not find anything particularly girly so we decided this might be the perfect occasion to create your own party kit. All you need to do is peel and stick an adorable pink snowman label / sticker onto a solid pink paper plate and cup. Best of all most of the stickers can be personalized to wish a happy day to the birthday girl!

We love adult Barbie costumes for Halloween, for girlfriend birthday parties, and even as Mom +Me Matching playdates outfits. Our biggest issue is finding something fun yet classy to wear.  Well, look no further. Now, Jeremy Scott's hot Moschino runway looks are available to rent at Rent The Runway! This collection is great for a night out on the town but would also make for a great Barbie Halloween costume. Don't miss your chance to reserve a piece from the Moschino Capsule Collection today! Just an FYI – Izzy tried to rent a fabulous dress from Rent the Runway about a week before her event. I cannot express how disappointed she was when her size was quickly grabbed up and was unavailable for her weekend. I talked her in to trying the larger size which worked out great but she did have a back up just in case. So the moral of this story is if you know you want to wear one of these fabulous outfits for Halloween – reserve TODAY!

If you want to be the absolute hottest woman in the room, order the  MOSCHINO Barbarella Jacket & Skirt. Yes, it will set you back a pretty penny but it will cost no where near as much as if you actually purchased this outfit.  In addition to Barbie, this particular combination would make a fantastic Elle Woods.

Pink Zebra Born to Shop Birthday Party Supplies

We haven't re-visited our Zebra Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies party package in many moons but no matter how much time has passed it always puts a smile on our face. How cute are a these Pink Zebra Born to Shop birthday party supplies! This theme is playful and bright and has become a classic look for a birthday party (including Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera & Bat Mitzvah), bridal and baby showers, bachelorette party, and just about any ladies night out celebration.

We began our latest quest with this great born to shop cocktail napkin and back filled from there.  When we came across a coordinating pink zebra party invitation we knew we had to share it.

Get the School Spirit – Save on Fan Poms!

Whether you call them fan poms, spirit poms, or rooter poms, this staple of cheer and pom pom squads are typically used to encourage crowd participation and to build team spirit at high school and college sporting events.

Spiritline is now offering individuals, organizations, and fundraising groups a special discount on the bulk purchase of 50 or more spirit poms.   Sports fan poms do especially well in gift shops and concession stands because fans find them to be fun and affordable and can be ordered in most school color combinations.  Additionally fan poms can be used as a fundraising tool by selling advertising space on custom coupon handle poms.

But our absolute favorite use of spirit poms is to gather a few dozen together and place them in  inexpensive white (or any color) urns to create  festive, colorful, impressive table centerpieces!  Perfect for end of year banquets, award ceremonies, school fundraisers, graduation celebrations, and yes, even patriotic parties.  It may be worth hanging around after the game to gather the poms left by fans in the stands.  🙂

If you need fewer than 50 poms, check out Spiritline‘s sister company Shindigz whose minimum pom order is 12 each rather than 5o each.

Go Team! Party Hearty!

Best Holiday Party Theme – Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Best Holiday Party Theme of 2012 - Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Photo courtesy of  Homemade Hostess Sno Balls

The 2012 holiday season is definitely the year to host{ess} a pink snowball holiday party.  With Hostess declaring bankruptcy this week the end of an era has arrived.  If you hurry you may still be able to pick up a few packs of classic Hostess Sno Balls – the long popular chocolate creme filled cakes covered in marshmallow and then covered in coconut flakes.  Better yet, start a new holiday tradition – throw a Pink Snowball baking party! This theme would also work great as an adorable winter bridal or baby shower, a great sorority holiday party, teacher appreciation holiday luncheon, or a sweet sixteen or Quinceanera party!

We can't believe after lots, and lots of searching we finally found invitations, stamps, centerpieces (just add pink or white tightly packed carnations arranged to resemble a snowball or better yet top with an edible sno ball!), and matching aprons that all coordinate  perfectly with this party theme.  We even found a recipe for homemade hostess sno balls.

Even though coconut is my least favorite food of all time, I must admit this has to be the best holiday party theme of 2012.

Party Hearty!
