HOW2 Design Your Own Party Hats
Last week we featured a post on HOW2 create custom paper cups on Zazzle. Well this week we are showing you HOW2 create your own paper hats on Zazzle. As you know, the the whole artisan decor look popularized on sites like Etsy, is not only trending, it is exploding and spreading to what might be considered more main stream retailers. So even if no one ever dons a party hat at your next shindig or celebration, simply having a paper hat sitting at each place setting will enhance the whole look! Plus, you can also use the hats to as photo props to create some adorable memories. Or turn them upside down and fill with popcorn or french fries or just about any other yummy snack food your can imagine.
As always, our visitors lead us to some of our very best gets. Not long ago we came across an image of this fabulous fox print but had no luck finding the creator or a source. And then today, one of our visitors let us know they found these elusive Ginger Ray fox theme party supplies on Amazon. We cannot be more excited. Since then, we have done a bit of research and learned that Ginger Ray is based in the UK and has an entire line of adorable party goods. As it turns out, we even feature her Pop Art Superhero party good on our superhero party inspiration package. Keep checking back because now that we found her, we are pretty much obsessed & have created a new tag especially for Ginger Ray!
As you are probably well aware, the fox is the hottest trending animal party theme not only because it is adorable, this woodland look works great for birthday parties, baby showers, weddings and even foxy holiday parties. We are also thinking of ordering some plates and napkins to use for our Thanksgiving appetizers and dessert courses (we tend to use our good china for the main course). Wouldn't that be #toocute
Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY.
