All That Glitters New Years Party

All That Glitters New Years Party

New Years is the one day a year we say bring on the bling and bring on the glitter.  We love all of our new year's party ideas (New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies , Chic New Years Party Decor Made Easy!, and our personal favorite, Usher in a Rosy New Year! ) but truthfully, all could use a little extra bling. That is why we decided to put together this All That Glitter New Years Party. Feel free to mix and match elements from all our New Years party ideas. Continue Reading →

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

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!

“Give Back” Holiday Party Craft Activity >> No Sew Blankets

Today's mom's have little trouble creating beautiful and festive children's birthday party celebrations but sometimes between our own crazy busy schedules and the quest to throw the this year's most talked about event, we forget to add the little things that make the day especially meaningful. We think it is important for kids to know how much we love them but equally important for them to understand they are not the center of the universe. Children need to learn and develop  a healthy sense of self which includes compassion and caring of others. What better day to teach this lesson than on the very day they are lavished with gifts. Teach by example – integrate a “Give back” craft activity into your child's birthday party in addition the the usual birthday fun and party games.

And with the holiday spirit upon us, why wait for your child's next birthday party. This “Give Back” craft activity would be a wonderful addition to any classroom holiday party and equally brilliant to incorporate into your own kid-friendly holiday celebrations. Continue Reading →

Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

Party Idea Pros has gathered the best of the best in holiday party plates and tableware.  From Christmas tree to snowmen  to candy cane to Santa Claus to Hanukkah theme tableware,  you will surely find a holiday pattern to please your fancy. Most of the holiday party plates have matching and coordinating napkins but on occasion we come across a festive holiday beverage napkin without matching plates.  We have added them to the bottom of this list. Most sites recommend coordinating products but if not, simply pair with a solid plate or even a clear plastic plate.  One last note – we love combining patterns so do not hesitate to mix and match your plates and napkins.  Mixing and matching not only adds a festive touch, it also makes the entire look more chic and up to date.

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine

We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings.  How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, Save 50% on First Month When You Join a Club Level (10/1-12/31).
