Beach & Nautical Theme Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Although designed as an entryway repository for sandy flip-flops, these flip flop pails can also serve as ice buckets, planters, and are the absolute perfect accessories for beach theme weddings.  As many of you are well aware, flip flops have replaced socks on wedding dance floors throughout the country.  The issue is not whether to supply flip flops but rather how to display them in a festive, sophisticated manner befitting a wedding.

They are absolutely perfect for beach theme and destination weddings.  And since they are trimmed in gold, we think they would work just fine at just about any wedding.  These wedding flip flop pails will add a needed touch of whimsy to even the most formal black tie affairs.  These flip flop bins will work equally well at a beach theme fundraiser, Bat Mitzvah, Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera celebration, or any party with dancing!  Continue Reading →

Have you walked outside lately?  We spent a week in New York recently and it was so hot and humid we could barely walk around the block.  We headed down to the beach but got bitten alive by biting flies. All I wanted to do at that time was to jump in a cool clean pool and ever since I have been obsessed with the idea of hosting a pool party.  And now that we are home, we have begun planning just such a party for late August, a celebration of family and friends and  our last chance for some summer fun before the kids go back to school.

Step one – choosing our pool party invitation.  We truly believe that choosing an invitation is the equivalent of choosing the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party! A great invitation — even before the party begins creates a sense of anticipation, especially in children.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.  We are featuring just a few of our favorites from Zazzle,  and if you order quickly you can still take advantage of their Christmas in July sale and save up to 65% off all invitations!  Even if you missed this sale keep your eye out for the banner that runs across the top of the page – and be sure to click it to save!

As we proceed with the plans, we will continue to update you on all the other details for our pool party including party favors, party decor, and even food and drink ideas.

Must Have Hair Accessory – Realistic Orchid Hairpin

Orchid Hair PinsThis weekend was dedicated to finding the perfect luau theme cocktail party dress.  No easy task considering the the stores are now featuring their fall lines – resort wear has not yet been released and summer dresses have been banished  from showroom floors.

Jessica Simpson Bansi Platform Sandal

Bright purple platform sandals as cute as they are comfortable!

Did we find the perfect dress?  Not quite perfect but we settled for a flouncy orange and purple baby doll dress that can be paired with some fun lilac strappy sandals, dangling earrings and the piece de resistance, this lovely realistic orchid hairpin to tie the entire look together.  Izzy will wear her hair in a beach wavy style and slide the orchid just behind her ear.  Now that's what we call Party Pretty!

Oddly enough, we had an even more difficult time finding the perfect hair accessory than the dress itself.  There are lots and lots of flower hair clips available, but most are fake and cheesy looking.  They usually are either too small or too large and don't fit comfortably.  These orchid hair pins are both priced right and fit well.

This orchid hairpin is also the perfect hair accessory for a summer casual or destination wedding,  as a beautiful accessory to a beach or surf theme party or even an upscale costume party since island theme costumes can easily straddle the fine  line between elegant and sexy.  It is always fun to find an accessory that is not only pretty but can be worn over and over in many different contexts –  we will definitely be adding this hair piece to our must own accessory list.

 

Party Hearty!
