Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials

Thanksgiving is without doubt my favorite holiday — beautiful tables, great food, and none of the stress associated with the winter holidays. This is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones whether they be family or friends. So first things first, if you haven't yet made your travel arrangements, the time is NOW!

Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor

Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables! In complete disclosure – since we live in San Diego, beautiful weather made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving outdoors.  Simple solar powered patio lights and lots of candles provided enough light even after sunset.  As you can see, we tried to mix elegant with fanciful touches.

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.

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Summer is finally here and with it comes a barrage of house guests and constant entertaining. We love it but it does take a bit of effort, preparation, and a reasonable budget. In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives. In addition to the basics, such as stocking the fridge with fresh vegetables and produce, most summers, just before our guests begin to arrive we inevitably seem to find ourselves in desperate need of fresh towels or sheets or even a shower curtain. And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous.

How to Get Ready to Party >> 5 Home Entertaining Essentials

This morning we were inspired by an article we stumbled upon an article on PopSugar addressing how to get ready to party and what exactly guests notice in your home.  All of us who entertain at all know that one of the most stressful aspects of home entertaining, whether you are hosting a dinner party or your child's first birthday party, is getting your house in shape for your guests.  Yes, you do need to clean but focus your time and efforts on making your bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Otherwise, shut the doors to rooms your guests do not need access to.  As for the rest, we sorta agree there are generally just a handful of things your guests will notice about your home.  No one will say – wow she so needs a new sofa or her carpet really deserves a cleaning.  Your home decor is almost irrelevant so long as the rooms your guests see are tidied up and lack clutter.  You can transform any room from drab to fab by implementing a few of these simple home entertaining essentials.

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.
