Hotdog (and hamburgers)! It's once again time to start shopping for your Fourth of July party supplies!
As you can tell, we love to use paper lanterns to fill in the space and set the mood for the entire party. In the photo we used these fabulous Americana lanterns although we just checked and there are only 2 left in stock (6.15.14).
Additionally, one of our go to paper lantern stores, aptly named, The Paper Lantern Store, is running a few great 4th of July promotions:
And we can't forget this Patriotic Balloon Lantern – not only is it festive, it is very affordable at only $1.59 each!
Although a bit too late to purchase for use at today's Memorial Day BBQ's, it is definitely not too early to start planning for your 4th of July entertaining needs! Celebrate summer (and our forefathers) with this collection of patriotic party buckets, grilling accessories, plates, and more. By the time you're through, you're sure to feel like lighting a sparkler or two.
Some of the deals are good but others are really great especially the napkin rings which we promise you will use over and over – not just at your patriotic parties! We are featuring just a few of the fabulous products. Be sure to check them all out NOW! So many of our favorites are already sold out.
Arrived here after the sale is long over? Be sure to check out our other Patriotic Theme Party Planning, Supplies & Ideas and our Red, White, and Blooms – A Patriotic Party.
We just received word that Ancestry.com is providing special Free Access this weekend in honor of Memorial Day!
So cool – we immediately went to looked up our dads' service enlistment records and there they were. Although initially we were unsure abut how this all might practically relate to planning your Memorial Day party as we were using the site we had one of those aha moments – we think access to these military records could actually be integrated into your celebration to add meaning and interest. We envision the family gathered around the computer oohing and aahing as you discover all sorts of ancestral history. In fact, if at all possible we recommend connecting your computer to your television (this might be the excuse you needed to invest in that long coveted Apple TV or other wireless computer to tv content streaming device) so searching your family history becomes an extended family bonding activity.
From Thursday May 23rd through Monday May 27, 2013, Ancestry.com is offering Free Access to the large collection of new military collections, draft, enlistment and service records. Visit Ancestry.com to start your search!
Don't forget to print out a few games for your Memorial Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past the 4th of July. Continue Reading →
Today through May 2, 2013 all clearance costumes & shoes are drastically reduced to $10 at Costume Express. This is an unbelievable sale. It is definitely worth the time to check out the discounted costumes and stock up not only for Halloween but for your year long costume wearing events. Think elementary school productions, Memorial Day and 4th of July parades, and children's birthday parties.
Do you have a graduating high school senior leaving for college in the fall? Many of the college mixers are themed costume parties so what better a gift than a fully stocked costume box. Izzy's costume box includes everything from Disney princess costumes to cute animal costumes to sassy angels and sizzling devil costumes. Many costumes serve multiple purposes – for example the featured clowning around costume works great for a neon themed party as well as a Mardi Gras party.
Don't dawdle – these costumes are flying off the shelf.
