“Give Back” Holiday Party Craft Activity >> No Sew Blankets

Today's mom's have little trouble creating beautiful and festive children's birthday party celebrations but sometimes between our own crazy busy schedules and the quest to throw the this year's most talked about event, we forget to add the little things that make the day especially meaningful. We think it is important for kids to know how much we love them but equally important for them to understand they are not the center of the universe. Children need to learn and develop  a healthy sense of self which includes compassion and caring of others. What better day to teach this lesson than on the very day they are lavished with gifts. Teach by example – integrate a “Give back” craft activity into your child's birthday party in addition the the usual birthday fun and party games.

And with the holiday spirit upon us, why wait for your child's next birthday party. This “Give Back” craft activity would be a wonderful addition to any classroom holiday party and equally brilliant to incorporate into your own kid-friendly holiday celebrations. Continue Reading →

Stella & Dot Does Pink Year in and Year Out!

Stella & Dot Does Pink

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And Valentine's Day is in February. Both months when we pull out our pink everything. And nobody does pink better than Stella & Dot does pink. Year in and year out, all year long you are pretty sure to find a piece of jewelry or an accessory that is the exact shade of pink you are searching for. This year that shade of pink we are all searching for is more of a blush but rose gold never goes out of style. And hot pink will always be perfect for that little pop of color we all need in our lives. Continue Reading →

A Gift that Gives – Healing Hearts Jewelry

Healing Hearts Jewelry Collection by Tamara

Healing Hearts Jewelry Collection by Tamara

A Gift that Gives – Healing Hearts Jewelry

Party Idea Pros generally does not highlight jewelry but we recently came across a chic new designer who whose unique gemstone collection is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any day:

“Gemstones are the spirit of the earth frozen in time. For thousands of years, gemstones have been treasured for their power to heal, energize and inspire. The design, stones and metal all empower you. The artful combination of these elements reflects your spirit and is yours forever.” Tamara Alter

Our favorite collection of Tamara’s is her Healing Hearts collection, created in honor of Tamara’s dear sister Stefanie who passed away at the young age of 43, after a brave and courageous fight against Ovarian Cancer. All profits from the Healing Hearts collection goes to The High Heals Foundation whose mission is to raise funds to develop methods for early diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer and aid in the discovery of a cure through research, advocacy and education.

Party Hearty!

Buy a Thumbprint Necklace & Support a Children's Shelter in Nepal

In case you have not yet noticed, we have started a new feature in our sidebar called PIP's Picks. It is in PIP's Picks we  try to highlight a deal each day that tickles our fancy. It may be something small like a darling host{ess} gift or something as fabulous as the latest and greatest Gucci find. Today's pick, a simple thumbprint necklace, although only available for a limited time or until supplies sell out, is both fabulous and meaningful. And thus it is deserving of a devoted post.

One of our new favorite merchants, Jane.com, has partnered with the Elizabeth Smart Foundation to help survivors at Raksha (a safe haven for children and young adults rescued from predatory crimes) to heal, move on, and thrive. As part of the collaboration, Jane is selling a fabulous #StrongLikeYou Raksha Necklace. Each necklace is stamped with the thumbprint of a child from Raksha, so you can hold your child's story close to your heart. Additionally, you will, receive an insert telling you a little more about your child. Plus, and here is the best part, 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the thumbprint necklace go directly to Raksha children’s shelter as part of Jane's #StrongLikeYou initiative.

Kids Community Service Activity – Clip Coupons for Coupons Help!

Coupons Help Fight Hunger

We are so excited to introduce our visitors to Coupons Help, a non-profit organization started by a 10 year old thoughtful, inspired, creative angel.  Basically, Chloe was at a family dinner when a friend of her father's mentioned that the food pantry he worked with could use coupons in addition to food to help those in need purchase food and essentials. Chloe began collecting coupons from the Sunday paper that would have otherwise been thrown away and mailed them to the shelter. It made a difference and so she thought she would build a website and try to collect coupons from people all over the world, especially kids like her. Chloe's goal is to get 3,000 coupons by the end of year!  We are here to support her in her efforts.

Think Pink. Think Poppin.

Think Pink. Think Poppin.

Think Pink. Think Poppin.

We are loving poppin's fabulous pink office, tech and kitchen products especially since now through October 31st, 10% of all sales will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition for Breast Cancer Awareness.  We find Poppin's contemporary, colorful approach to home and office both refreshing and invigorating.

Although all pink might be just a little over the top except maybe for a girls night out party, it sure beats boring black.  We like pretty.  We like handsome.  poppin does both well!

Like many of you, we spend an inordinate amount of time in our office, often more waking hours than we do at home.  We spend our days surrounded by paper clips and staplers, tape dispensers and sticky notes, why shouldn't they meet the same attractiveness threshold as our bathroom tissue dispensers and remote control holders.  Brighten up your days by brightening your office with smile inducing styling and pops of color.  Get poppin!

Party Hearty!
