Veni. Vidi. Vici. (Ides of March Party)

Ides of March Party
Veni. Vidi. Vici. (Ides of March Party)

I Came           I Saw          I Conquered

March 15th.

What is the Ides of March?

courtesy of Jennifer Vernon, for National Geographic News, March 12, 2004

Julius Caesar's bloody assassination on March 15, 44 B.C., forever marked March 15, or the Ides of March, as a day of infamy. It has fascinated scholars and writers ever since. For ancient Romans living before that event, however, an ides was merely one of several common calendar terms used to mark monthly lunar events. The ides simply marked the appearance of the full moon.

But the Ides of March assumed a whole new identity after the events of 44 B.C. The phrase came to represent a specific day of abrupt change that set off a ripple of repercussions throughout Roman society and beyond. Click here for the rest of the article

Today, thanks to the William Shakespeare‘s play Julius Caesar, the soothsayer's warning to Julius Caesar, “Beware the Ides of March,” has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding.  But here at Party Idea Pros we say the ides of March is just another excuse to party, especially for those interested in ancient Roman history, Shakespeare, or anything toga.   Pick and chose from a wide range of ideas.  This theme can go as elegant or as bawdy as you desire.

Peace and Love Party Theme, Ideas & Supplies

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.

New Years Eve Decorations & Party Supplies

New Years Eve Decorations & Party Supplies

We know you are most likely overwhelmed with holiday shopping and planning your Christmas dinners but we highly recommend you take 30 minutes out from your busy schedule to order your New Year's Eve party decorations and supplies.  Although we generally use our annual New Year's Eve party as an excuse to use the fine china and crystal glassware, we also love New Year's eve party tableware, oversized champagne flute balloons, party hats, plastic leis and noise makers.  Ok – we admit it we love to add a tad of tacky to our New Year's Eve Party.

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies 

How could we possibly spend an entire week in Paris and not put together an inspiration board for a Paris theme party.  I am personally hosting dinner club in early December and am definitely taking the opportunity to celebrate all things Parisian from the food to the party decor to the place card holders.  Right now, I think I will send out the featured Parisian Party Invitation,  use the Chic Paris Party Cupcake Kit from Beau-coup (not to serve cupcakes in but rather to use for serving hors d'oeuvres), and will probably swing for either these cute Le Parisian Napkin Holders or Mini Eiffel Tower Place Card Holders to add a tad of  kitsch to an otherwise elegant table.

Festive Handbag, Shoe, & Martini Glass Mylar Balloon Bouquets

As you all know all too well, you our visitors are our greatest inspiration.  So when one of our loyal visitors alerted us to this  Glitzy Girl Purse Shape Mylar Balloon it immediately got us thinking.  How fabulous would it be to combine the mylar purse balloon  with a Ruby Slippers Shaped Foil Balloon, a Cheers Martini Glass Shape Balloon and a few latex balloons in almost any color to create a very affordable yet very festive centerpiece for a ladies night out party, a bridal shower, or a fun birthday luncheon. These balloon bouquets are definitely Informal and even a bit silly but you will surely make your girlfriends smile.  A balloon bouquet would make a fun birthday delivery also.  As a practical matter, you can, of course, purchase your own personal helium tank or just bring the balloons to your local grocery store and they will be able to fill them for a small fee.
