So we got to thinking, last year at this time we were frantically putting together a pink snowman winter one-derland party theme for a visitor who emailed asking for some inspiration for their daughter's 1st birthday party. This year we challenged ourselves to create a fresh holiday take on a baby boy's 1st birthday party.
Once we found this adorable gnome costume, we were set. Our theme would be Our Little Christmas Gnome Birthday Party. Not only would the photos be #toocute, we loved the idea of combining blue and red with splashes of green to create a playful, festive holiday theme first birthday party. We also found some cute gnome party invitations with a red and white polka dot background – how perfect was that! Continue Reading →
Print and Play!
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.

Adult Coloring Party
In honor of National Coloring Book Day …
Just last week we featured Color-In Kids Thank You Notes partially because we believe in the importance of teaching thank you note etiquette from a very young age and partially because we are obsessed with coloring. You know those restaurants that have paper tablecloths and offer crayons for the kids >> well we are the first to reach for the crayons. We create giant doodles mostly because we love coloring them in.
As it turns out, we are not the only ones who love to color. Coloring for grown-ups is all the rage right now, and coloring parties for adults is quickly surpassing the popularity of the pottery painting parties ten years ago, or so. The difference is that with coloring parties, the costs are minimal. All you need is a pack or two of sharpened colored pencils and pages to color. And of course a few snacks and cocktails or mocktails. Coloring parties are a fun theme for a low key girls nights in or gal pal birthday parties or even baby and bridal showers. Just choose your coloring pages based on your party theme. 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 →
