Let’s Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest!

Big news today! The palace officially confirmed the Prince William and Duchess Katherine (Kate Middleton) are expecting a baby.  And as you well know – we are obsessed with everything Kate!

So we thought, wouldn't it be fun to host a “Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest.”   Send us your ideas, your photos, and your link to your own Party Idea {Pros} Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest pinterest board (be sure to name it this) and you will be entered into a contest to receive a royal baby shower basket.   In the basket will be a selection of the most liked products featured on our own Party Idea Pros Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest Pinterest Board. (More details to follow – please be patient and give us a few days to work out all the details. At this point we are thinking the basket will include the most liked item in each  category – ie invitations & stamps, place cards, party favors, centerpieces, candles, party supplies and paper goods (for 16 guests) baby gifts, party games, and party decor.)

How will we populate our board? We will choose our favorite products from the ones you submit and those we find on our own and will post them to this pinterest board.  All you need to do is follow this board and like your favorite items.  7 days after the baby is born we will throw a baby naming party and announce the winner of the basket!  That's it.

We'll start it off with the featured boy and girl Royal Welcome Photo Baby Shower Invitations with matching address labels and thank you cards from Tiny Prints.  So cute!  And Zazzle has a ton of darling royal baby shower invitations! Our favorite is probably the Blue & Gold Royal Prince or the very simple Little Prince Invitations

And look – we have already found an adorable party kit!

New!

Loving Claudia Party Designs printable royal princess party invitations, decorative banners, thank you tags, and cupcake toppers.

So let's get this party going!

Party Hearty!

Halloween Piñatas

Halloween Piñatas

Kids love piñatas almost as much as they love candy.  So combining a piñata with Halloween trick or treating – how perfect is that!  We love these Halloween Piñatas – a scary black cat, a giant flying bat, a witch on a broomstick, an adorable Frankenstein, and a great carved pumpkin.

Halloween Piñatas are not only perfect additions to any party they may be a great alternative for those of you not so into trick or treating, begging for candy by knocking on strangers doors.  The fact is that some children really do find the holiday of Halloween scary and overwhelming so inviting a few friends over to your house for a costume party may be just the answer.  Send out Halloween invitations, serve Halloween theme food & drink, play Halloween games, offer cute Halloween party favors, have a costume fashion show, and end the festivities with breaking the piñata so everyone walks away with a bagful of candy.  This way you also have complete control over the candy and don't have to comb through pillow cases full of yucky unwrapped candy handed out by strangers.

Have a safe Halloween and party hearty!
