Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see the fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY. Continue Reading →
8 Creative Ways to Serve Holiday Donuts
This one is for you, Joe! All of us here at PartyIdeaPros LOVE donuts. So when we were challenged by a reader to come up with 5 ways to serve donuts this holiday season, it was challenge on! Personally, we would probably glitter up our donuts with red, green, blue, silver and gold edible glitters, depending on what holiday we are celebrating that day! Add or subtract edible glitter, to taste (and yes, pun intended!). Continue Reading →
Our close friends and occasional PIP contributors, Vicki and Paige, landed in Waco, Texas for a fun week in search of all things fabulous. It did not take them long to discover a set of wonderful burlap silverware holders. We hate to admit it but this was our first encounter with utensil holders and we are smitten. So of course, we felt compelled to spend a couple of of hours researching burlap utensil pockets and then decided to share a few of our favorites with you. We envision using cutlery pockets for weddings, bridal & baby showers, and birthday & dinner parties . We also think burlap cutlery holders could really add that sometime elusive but all so important little splash of wow to your Thanksgiving tables! Continue Reading →
Are you still searching for a fun, elegant & memorable groomsmen gift? Think Personalized Flask. Yes, as you can quickly see flasks come in all shapes, sizes and materials. The classic flask is either metal or metal & leather but today you can also find collapsible canvas flasks, vinyl wrapped flasks, and glass flasks. Their designs range from simple to well, not so simple such as a flask that looks like a retro cell phone or one that sports the insignia of your favorite NFL team or even a horn-shaped flask.
So where to begin? Flasks are hot and they are everywhere from the traditional wedding favor shops to interesting handmade flask designs on Etsy to a sterling silver flask from Tiffany & Co. Most quality flasks are priced from $25.00 – $35.00 but sterling silver and specialty genuine leather can cost you a pretty penny.
Like each bride, each groom has his own unique style (even if he does not realize it ). So if we were choosing, we would narrow our choices to the look most fitting the groom even if it doesn't 100% go with the wedding theme. A groomsmen gift is all about the guy relationship so if you are all sports buddies go for the sporty flasks. If you are a fun loving goofy bunch, the mustache flasks might be just right, the camouflage flask might appeal a group of guys who go hunting together, or the traditional Wall Street guy might want to stick with a classic black or brown leather style

Does your business need to make a big statement this holiday season? Take your company holiday decorations to new heights! Check out these tall pre-lighted Christmas trees. And these even taller, 15 – 30 foot trees and beautiful decorative foliage, perfect for use in mall, theme parks, office complexes and other commercial settings. Designate your custom tree height, from 14 feet to 30 feet and beyond. Remember, although the initial costs can be high, these commercial Christmas trees are an investment that should be amortized over many, many years of use. Their lush crush resistant needles and ready shaped branches minimize fluffing and expedite set-up. The galvanized heavy gauge wire eliminates rust so the trees can be set up both indoors and outdoors. Finally, the LED lights provides super energy efficiency. Continue Reading →
Gender Reveal Party Ideas
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.

Tin Ceiling Tile Magnetic Seating Charts & Escort Card Boards
We so loved Ceiling Tile Ideas concept of using tin ceiling tiles as magnetic seating charts or escort card boards for weddings, mitzvahs, quinceaneras, sweet sixteens, anniversary and every celebration, we decided to feature it here. The best part is that the tile can be painted to coordinate with your party decor. The pictures below, featured on Ruffled , are great for a manor or vintage style wedding, but the decorative metal tile idea is extremely versatile and will work equally well with any style even an art deco or modern look.

From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be's. Rather than being authentic 70's and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes. It is a little like home decorating. All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy. We always say don't choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes. Why buy fake 70's clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year's festival wear. Continue Reading →
