Donuts, Cupcakes, Pancakes and Pajamas Party Ideas & Supplies

This week we had the honor and privilege of partnering with MomMeMatch.com to help put together first birthday party ideas for one of their visitors. Megan challenged MomMeMatch.com to create mommy, daddy & me pajama options for her baby daughter's 1st birthday pancakes and pajamas party theme. After a bit of discussion, we all decided to expand our research to also include “donut time” and “cupcake cuteness” party themes mostly to give Megan more pajama options from which to choose. We let MomMeMatch find the darling pajamas and we stuck with what we do best, finding adorable coordinating pancake, donut and cupcake party supplies. Continue Reading →

Pirate Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Let Party Idea {Pros} walk you through every step of your child's pirate birthday party including pirate party invitations,  decor, food ideas,  pirate fun and games and even pirate costumes for children.

Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoops, beach balls,, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Save money – skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Many of the products here also work for pirate theme baby showers!

For a great kids pirate theme birthday party there are only six essentials

  1. A great pirate invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
  2. Great pirate theme paper goods
  3. A  cluster or two of  pirate theme latex balloons mixed with some fabulous Pirate Balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present)
  4. A toy treasure chest or pirate ship, and gold coins for  your centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the pirate party kits – you can always make them a little less commercial by adding balloons and some of your own pirate accessories.
  5. For the food –  keep it simple:  serve goldfish crackers and trail mix  in a pirate skull goblet,   use fish shaped cookie cutter to cut cheese, tea style sandwiches, and fruit or skewer small pieces of fruit onto pirate sword food picks,   and for dessert serve  pirate cookies , crispy pirate pops, or the classic decorated birthday cake/ cupcakes.
  6. Four  activities:  a “doing” activity such as a home “treasure hunt” a craft activity such as  decorating a treasure chest, and a game activity  like, “capture the pirate flag” or “pirate tug of war”,  and to end the party you absolutely must break the pirate ship pinata.  As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.

Let the Adventures Begin!

Travel Themed Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Back in February we featured Travel Themed Party DIY Compass Place Cards . At the time we promised to follow up with more travel themed party ideas. And ever since, we have been collecting ideas. For weddings we love Beau-coup's  exclusive Our Greatest Adventure party supplies.  These travel themed party supplies are right on trend since today’s young couples tend to focus more on life experiences and less on consumable goods. Hence, it seems very appropriate their celebrations reflect this philosophy of life.

Truthfully, we have also been a bit obsessed with the concept of interweaving an adventure inspired travel themed party across numerous lifecycle celebrations. In addition to weddings think graduations, mitzvah and quinceanera celebrations, and even retirement parties.

Update! For the next few weeks Beau-coup is offering up to 25% OFF many of their Our Greatest Adventure and other travel themed party supplies and decor. Each day's deal will be clearly posted at the top of the page. Continue Reading →
