Fox Theme Party Planning, Ideas, Decor & Supplies

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 the 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.

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine

We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings.  How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, Save 50% on First Month When You Join a Club Level (10/1-12/31).

Hats On! Hat Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Hats On! Hat Theme Party Planning, Ideas, and Supplies

Don your hats ladies, it is time to party!

A hat or fascinator party is a perfect party theme for Ladies Night Out Parties, Bachelorette Parties (Hen’s Night In), Bridal Showers, Birthday Luncheons, Retirement Parties, and even Quinceanera Celebrations, Teen Parties, Sweet Sixteen Parties, and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations (especially if you add a charitable element to your celebration).

I even hosted a wildly successful hat theme party while in college.  Like costumes, hats make great conversation starters without the fuss of finding the perfect costume.  My date and I simply took a ride to the local Burger King and picked up a pre-party snack and 2 Burger King crowns. 

One more idea — dress your holiday party up this year — add a hat element and leave your Christmas sweaters in mothballs in the back of the closet  or in the bottom dresser drawer!

The Inspiration for this party

Kate Middleton's FascinatorsKate Middleton's FascinatorsKate Middleton's Fascinators

Kate Middleton, Fashion Icon & The Fascinator

Women across the world are wanting them and wearing them!

The fascinator is the new must have fashion accessory! What is it? It is an ornate hair accessory that features feathers, beads, flowers and other fancy trimmings. Kate (or should we say Princess Catherine) seems to favor fascinators with feathers. We like them all. Not only do fascinators add a whole lot of flair to any outfit, a nice fascinator does not have to set you back a pretty penny which is good because you will definitely want to own more than one!

Where to wear them? Everywhere!

  • Planning a ladies night out or bachelorette party? Call attention to yourselves by wearing these fun and festive head pieces.
  • Planning a birthday luncheon? Ask all your friends to wear fascinators or hats or any type!
  • Attending an afternoon wedding? Don a fascinator — the latest British trend to storm America's shores. 

Let's start with the hats

Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Your Ugly Sweater Holiday Party!

It's that time of year and if you have not already, you will most likely receive at least one invitation to an ugly sweater Christmas party. Since we are pretty sure you don't have anything ugly hanging in your closet we have put together a few inexpensive options for you to look great wearing ugly!

Stocking Stuffer Ugly Christmas Sweater

This year our “go to”  ugly sweater shop is Ugly Christmas Sweaters !

DIY Ugly Sweaters

The easiest and most inexpensive option is to simply take a sweater you already own and ugly it up. Just pin on goofy holiday related items.  You can  actually order an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit on Amazon and on Ugly Christmas Sweaters.

Our second stop is generally Amazon because they have a ridiculously large selection of the ugliest sweaters we have ever seen. Since this is not a sweater you will wear over and over again, at least for us, price trumps quality every time.

Best Holiday Party Theme – Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Best Holiday Party Theme of 2012 - Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Photo courtesy of  Homemade Hostess Sno Balls

The 2012 holiday season is definitely the year to host{ess} a pink snowball holiday party.  With Hostess declaring bankruptcy this week the end of an era has arrived.  If you hurry you may still be able to pick up a few packs of classic Hostess Sno Balls – the long popular chocolate creme filled cakes covered in marshmallow and then covered in coconut flakes.  Better yet, start a new holiday tradition – throw a Pink Snowball baking party! This theme would also work great as an adorable winter bridal or baby shower, a great sorority holiday party, teacher appreciation holiday luncheon, or a sweet sixteen or Quinceanera party!

We can't believe after lots, and lots of searching we finally found invitations, stamps, centerpieces (just add pink or white tightly packed carnations arranged to resemble a snowball or better yet top with an edible sno ball!), and matching aprons that all coordinate  perfectly with this party theme.  We even found a recipe for homemade hostess sno balls.

Even though coconut is my least favorite food of all time, I must admit this has to be the best holiday party theme of 2012.

Party Hearty!
