Plan your college costume party today to take advantage of Post Halloween Blow-out Costume Sales
Work hard. Play hard.
Sometimes academics seem easy compared to planning fabulous parties week in and week out. All you social chairs understand — one great party a semester doesn't cut it. Although unique ideas are hard to come by, sometimes unique is not necessary so long as your party is fresh and over the top. Actually, planning a college party is quite simple. You only need two elements:
(Always drink responsibly. Never drink and drive. And please, do not serve alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age!)
Now add a few games, music, and low lighting, and you are pretty well set.
Rather than write a super long post, my plan is to create a new post for each specific costume party theme. This way you can easily pick and choose which theme(s) appeal to you and easily access and visualize the theme.
(With lots more to come!)
One more thought …
Have fun and party hearty!
Party Idea Pros generally does not highlight jewelry but we recently came across a chic new designer who whose unique gemstone collection is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any day:
“Gemstones are the spirit of the earth frozen in time. For thousands of years, gemstones have been treasured for their power to heal, energize and inspire. The design, stones and metal all empower you. The artful combination of these elements reflects your spirit and is yours forever.” Tamara Alter
Our favorite collection of Tamara’s is her Healing Hearts collection, created in honor of Tamara’s dear sister Stefanie who passed away at the young age of 43, after a brave and courageous fight against Ovarian Cancer. All profits from the Healing Hearts collection goes to The High Heals Foundation whose mission is to raise funds to develop methods for early diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer and aid in the discovery of a cure through research, advocacy and education.
If you are on an extremely tight budget, you can’t beat the price on these postcards turned invitations. Design your own graphics or use one of the pre-printed backgrounds.
It took Party Idea Pros less than two hours to help the SDJA prom chairs create the perfect invitation for this year’s prom. These romantic invitations were designed and ordered on Wednesday afternoon and delivered by Friday. Plan ahead and save on shipping!!!!
(Keep It Stylishly Simple)
Today’s economic circumstances require hosts to be sensitive to the times. Over the top glitzy is out. Simple, meaningful, and elegant is in. Think understated! Bigger invitations are not necessarily better. Giant floral masterpieces can be replaced with smaller tasteful florals or even single flowers. But remember understated does not mean austere. It is still ok to have fun — in fact, it may be down right patriotic. So don’t skip your next celebration, instead remember to KISS (Keep It Stylishly Simple!)
