Party Idea Pros has gathered the best of the best in holiday party plates and tableware. From Christmas tree to snowmen to candy cane to Santa Claus to Hanukkah theme tableware, you will surely find a holiday pattern to please your fancy. Most of the holiday party plates have matching and coordinating napkins but on occasion we come across a festive holiday beverage napkin without matching plates. We have added them to the bottom of this list. Most sites recommend coordinating products but if not, simply pair with a solid plate or even a clear plastic plate. One last note – we love combining patterns so do not hesitate to mix and match your plates and napkins. Mixing and matching not only adds a festive touch, it also makes the entire look more chic and up to date.
Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events? There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.
Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes. One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters. Another year they all dressed in neon. Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes? Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!
Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site. Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not. Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine. If they are cut a bit too low for your taste, add a tank top underneath. If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented. 🙂
If you and your family have not yet seen Disney Pixar's Coco, we highly recommend you head on over to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video! This is easily one of our all time favorite movies. Coco is an educational, adorable and heart-warming animated film about Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you and your children are a fan of the movie seriously consider using the movie to inspire your next birthday party. Not only will your party be visually brilliant, its beautiful meaningful message will set your party apart from the rest, in only good ways! (This is a great theme for classroom parties as well).
