Joie >> One Skirt Three Looks

Joie >> One Skirt Three Looks

We really, really like this Joie skirt!  So simple yet not.  As you can see it can be combined with lots of tops, scarves, shoes, and bags to create very different looks.  You can wear it to work, to a girls lunch, to run errands around town, or even for a fun night out.  And if you want to get an extra wear out of your purchase, hike it up even shorter to create a sexy school girl look or an adorable witch costume for Halloween – just add a witch’s hat! This type of purchase is exactly what we like to call a great get because this Meade skirt will quickly become a wardrobe staple, especially if you choose the skirt in the caviar black color.

Thanksgiving Invitations

Thanksgiving Dinner Invitations

It has taken me a bit to get used to but every year my husband’s family mails out Thanksgiving invitations.  Although this tradition may seem a bit formal, it is actually quite lovely.  Each year the invitation itself sets the tone for that year’s Thanksgiving festivities.  Moreover, the actual receipt of the invitation ignites conversations and anticipation about seeing aunts, uncles, and cousins galore.  We even look forward to guessing what valuables the new batch of toddlers will inevitably break.

So before you get too overwhelmed with holiday planning, we made your job a little easier  – here is an overview of the best of the best Thanksgiving invitations to inspire you. Every year all our favorite merchants introduce a fresh batch of Thanksgiving invitations so be sure to to scroll through all of your options so you can familiarize yourself with the new looks as well as the more classic stationery styles.  Last year when we were hosting a California Thanksgiving, I purposely chose an elegant look rather than a ultra casual style because I wanted all the New Englanders to rest assured that although we would definitely put a unique San Diego spin on Thanksgiving, we would still honor the traditions they had learned to love and come to expect.

Chic Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece | Fall Party Planning

Chic Painted Pumpkin Vase with FlowersWe love this painted pumpkin  vase with fresh flowers that showed up on our Facebook feed from Beau-coup, one of our favorite party favor merchants.  Yes, flowers always look great in pumpkins but an orange pumpkin with fall flowers is very predictable.  All they did in this photo was spray paint this pumpkin white and add a chic contemporary arrangement to create a fresh centerpiece look for fall.  We love the painted pumpkin displayed on the acacia cake stand also!

We also think this idea would translate well to an intimate dinner party or could even be used at each place setting as a place card / party favor (one per couple is just fine!).  Simply use a miniature painted pumpkin and add a handful of freshly picked ombre flowers...

We are definitely adding this to our We <3 Fall Pinterest board as we gather ideas for this year’s Thanksgiving festivities.

2014 Popular Movie Character Costumes

2014 Popular Movie Character Halloween Costumes

by Amanda

2014 gave us some pretty great new movies that hit the big screens with a bang! From Divergent to Maleficent to Guardians of the Galaxy, romance, comedy, action, fear stole our hearts and connected us with characters we all can identify with and love as our own friends. So how come we here a Party Idea Pros were not able to find pre-made costumes for so many of these amazing characters that we are sure we are not alone in wanting to dress up as for Halloween this year? We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find several 2014 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have taken the time to comb through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite 2014 popular movie characters. We hope you enjoy what we’ve found!
