New Years is the one day a year we say bring on the bling and bring on the glitter. We love all of our new year's party ideas (New Years Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies , Chic New Years Party Decor Made Easy!, and our personal favorite, Usher in a Rosy New Year! ) but truthfully, all could use a little extra bling. That is why we decided to put together this All That Glitter New Years Party. Feel free to mix and match elements from all our New Years party ideas. Continue Reading →

As you know we are always on the look out for adorable Pi Beta Phi gifts and doodads. We have been huge fans of these Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Arrow Necklace for a while now but are now pretty much obsessed with these heart and arrow cupcake kits too. How cute would it be to bake cupcakes for Pi Phi big little sister treats or other sorority parties. Continue Reading →
We fell in love with this great lobster party supply bundle that includes Oval Melamine Plates, (4) Butter Dipping Bowls and (1) Pack of 20 Napkins. Not surprisingly we now felt compelled to create an entire summer party around these festive products that could work perfectly for a Father's Day celebration, a 4th of July Party, or as an excuse to gather your friends and family together for no reason at all.
Most Importantly, The Lobster
Since it is summer, do not, we repeat do not fire up your stove and slave for hours trying to create the perfect 3-4 course lobster fest. It is just too hot outside and truthfully, not worth your time and effort. Especially, since there is a terrific alternative that even if you slave for hours in the kitchen, will taste better than anything you can pull together yourself. Instead simplify your life by ordering the lobster and all the fixings from Lobster Anywhere. They will deliver everything from the lobsters and the lobster pot to the shell crackers, seafood forks, and lobster bibs. Now add some chowder and crab cakes or sea scallops wrapped in bacon for appetizers and finish off with yummy key lime pie for dessert. One stop shop with overnight delivery to ensure everything is as fresh as possible. Continue Reading →
Although the original autumn paper table setting placemats sold out long ago, we just found these very similar Farmers Market Paper Placemat Pads (and no, they are not limited time offerings – they are available all year round!)
We recommend you combine these stylish-yet-rustic paper placemats, paper napkins, and paper table runners, each adorned with a motif of fresh garden vegetables, to create a stunning Thanksgiving table. The combination will result in the oft sought but hard to achieve sense of sophistication and quality that comes across as effortless.
Although I haven't completely made up my mind, with 50 relatives ringing the doorbell at exactly 1:00 on Thanksgiving Thursday, I am very tempted to go with this design aesthetic. The idea would be to combine the causal elegance of this kraft paper design with my collection of fine china, Fiesta dinnerware and crystal stemware. Not only does this design blend seamlessly into my industrial modern home decor, I think it will make re-setting the tables in between courses so much easier – I can just snatch up the dirty placemats, toss them in the trash and add a fresh mat at each place setting Plus, I could pull the look all together with copper colander centerpieces (filled with fresh seasonal vegetables, and cacti or ivy filler) and chalkboard chic food tags. Since I serve so many different dishes to satisfy a vast array of dietary restrictions, I think it might be helpful to label them all so individuals can choose whether or not to partake. And while I am thinking about it, wouldn't it be great to serve Moscow Mules in copper cups as a festive drink to visually compliment the centerpieces?
