Summer Movie Night Block Party

Summer Movie Night Block Party!

By: Amanda

Rather than wasting hours watching mediocre television this summer, grab some friends and catch up on the latest new release movies! Or why not go all-out and make it a summer movie night block party?

Use PartyIdeaPros.com's Oscar night ballots as a starting point for choosing your nightly movie. Most of the nominated films are currently available on DVD or through Amazon on Demand. Stick with Party Idea Pros simpler Movie Night celebration package ideas for your summertime viewing parties.  Then pick two nights during the summer to glam it up with our Lights, Camera, Action and Hollywood Nights celebration packages.

Organizing a block party or reunion? Hosting an all school barbeque/fundraiser, a sweet sixteen or teen party, an adult or children's birthday party, or  even anniversary party?  A backyard movie night is a wonderful theme for any warm weather event.  Just choose your movie to suit the occasion  — think John Wayne, Sponge Bob, Legally Blonde, The Parent Trap, Casa Blanca, Star Wars, Rear Window, The Shawshank Redemption Twilight and New Moon double feature and the list goes on and on.

Party Idea Pros has tried to simplify this package by creating inspiration boards to capture our favorite garden themed invitations, centerpiece ideas, balloons, place cards and place card holders, party favors and printable games in addition to a more streamlined look at other garden party supplies. Below is a quick overview of some of the best garden theme party supplies available.  Remember – even if an item is out of stock or discontinued most of our “go to” merchants have plenty of other options – we just can't showcase them all here.  These inspiration boards are already too full – can you imagine if we tried to squish in even more ideas 🙂

XLVIII Super Bowl Invitations, Party Supplies & Party Planning Tips

XLVIII Super Bowl Invitation
XLVII Super Bowl Invitation - BackDespite cocky assertions of dominance and armchair pundit  predictions, nobody really knows who will be playing in Super Bowl  XLVIII. Nonetheless, it is none to early to begin planning your Super Bowl 2014 viewing party.  Mark your calendars and send out these fabulous Super Bowl Invitations today.

After your invitations go out, you have just 2 weeks to plan the rest of your  Super Bowl viewing party!  Your first step will be to decide whether you  want your party to be a neutral zone or cater to the teams' fan bases.  You can choose traditional  football party decor or go with the team colors, banners, flags, and decorations.

We also recommend you plan on at least a few football party games  just in case there is a lull in the conversation or the football game is a blowout. If you are watching a game on television, let your guests make the calls — provide individual penalty flags – just picture a room full of people tossing their flags all at once!  Madden Football 2013 is always good for hours of football fun. For the young at heart, pinatas are a great way to end any party.  Years ago we met the fellow who created Fiki finger Football and have been obsessed ever since!  And  printable games are quick, economical, and easy to execute party fillers.

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Paris Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies 

How could we possibly spend an entire week in Paris and not put together an inspiration board for a Paris theme party.  I am personally hosting dinner club in early December and am definitely taking the opportunity to celebrate all things Parisian from the food to the party decor to the place card holders.  Right now, I think I will send out the featured Parisian Party Invitation,  use the Chic Paris Party Cupcake Kit from Beau-coup (not to serve cupcakes in but rather to use for serving hors d'oeuvres), and will probably swing for either these cute Le Parisian Napkin Holders or Mini Eiffel Tower Place Card Holders to add a tad of  kitsch to an otherwise elegant table.

This morning as I was watching the morning news shows, sipping coffee and enjoying our incredible San Diego summer, I felt almost saddened that many Americans will be forced to spend these last few weeks of summer vacation indoors due to inclement weather. So of course this got me thinking. I called the Party Idea {Pros} gang together and posed today's challenge – Let's create a fun indoor end of summer gal party that can be tailored to kids, teens, college coeds, or even moms needing a break. After a bit of brainstorming we unanimously decided upon Continue Reading →

Have you walked outside lately?  We spent a week in New York recently and it was so hot and humid we could barely walk around the block.  We headed down to the beach but got bitten alive by biting flies. All I wanted to do at that time was to jump in a cool clean pool and ever since I have been obsessed with the idea of hosting a pool party.  And now that we are home, we have begun planning just such a party for late August, a celebration of family and friends and  our last chance for some summer fun before the kids go back to school.

Step one – choosing our pool party invitation.  We truly believe that choosing an invitation is the equivalent of choosing the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party! A great invitation — even before the party begins creates a sense of anticipation, especially in children.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.  We are featuring just a few of our favorites from Zazzle,  and if you order quickly you can still take advantage of their Christmas in July sale and save up to 65% off all invitations!  Even if you missed this sale keep your eye out for the banner that runs across the top of the page – and be sure to click it to save!

As we proceed with the plans, we will continue to update you on all the other details for our pool party including party favors, party decor, and even food and drink ideas.

Party Hearty!
