It's Time to Celebrate Your College Admission!

Celebrate College Admission

Finally, after hours and hours spent filling out applications and writing college essays, and then enduring the interminable waiting game, college acceptance (and rejection) letters are beginning to trickle in.  Our advice is simple — toss the rejection letters. And celebrate every acceptance whether it is your first choice school or your safety school!  Celebrate your achievements and the schools who appreciate you! Once you narrow your choices down and ultimately make the final decision as to which school will be the lucky school to include you in their class of 2020, begin wearing your new school colors. Splurge on college gear. Buy college t-shirts and sweatshirts, hats and caps, college pennants, bedding, watches and jewelry, and anything and everything else to proclaim your new college spirit.

Woodland Animals Baby Shower Party Supplies

The inspiration for this party came from Pam who contacted us searching for gender neutral woodland animals party plates, napkins & cups. She originally visited our post on Fox Theme Party Planning, Ideas, Decor & Supplies and although there are lots and lots of cute ideas, it does not feature exactly what she is looking for. So our team here at PIP cranked into high gear and began searching specifically for party supplies & ideas that could work at a gender neutral woodland animals theme baby shower.

Some of the products we came up with will need to be modified, slightly. For example, we found cute paper goods that work except the napkins say “Happy Birthday”. No big deal >> simply substitute a coordinating solid color. Similarly, we found some adorable plates and napkins but no corresponding cups. This too is an easy enough fix –remember everything does not have to match exactly and if you really want the same pattern on everything, you can always add a matching sticker. Continue Reading →
