Movie Theme Party Decorations

Movie Party Decor

We cannot believe we had not found this this fabulous movie theme party decor from Minted in time for your Academy Awards viewing parties but truthfully this look is better suited to a bit more low-key less glitz-filled night. With its classic black and white color theme we definitely envision using these chic bunting banners, garland, table signs and more at events like our  Movie Night celebration and our Lights, Camera, Action and Summer Fun – Backyard Movie Night parties.

Train Diaper Cakes – The Perfect Train Theme Baby Shower Centerpiece

Baby Shower Centerpiece Gifts Train Diaper Cake

Probably one of the most re-pinned and favorited items on our Pinterest boards is this train diaper cake. Although perfect as a centerpiece for train theme baby showers it is not like a traditional diaper cake where the train is built with diapers rubber banded together but instead it is  all  held together with glue so after the shower the mom-to-be will not be able to actually use the diapers.  She will, however, be able to use the  baby care items (baby shampoo, wash, lotion powder & diaper rash ointment) placed in the middle train cars. Currently it is available in green on Amazon and in blue, pink & green on eBay.  Because diaper patterns change, the actual pattern on the train will vary depending on availability.  This particular train is made from baby items – diapers, baby bottle, wash cloths.  It measures about 11 inches tall, 27 inches long and 3.5 inches wide (Again, from the merchant – this is a glued keepsake decoration and not intended to be used – this is not a toy). Update:  We have messaged this merchant to verify the details as presented   and will update you once we hear back from her!  Our gut is that we may be taking her words too literally because truthfully, not being able to use the diapers rather defeats the purpose of a  creating a diaper cake.)

Happy Mardi Gras!!

There is no better party than a Mardi Gras Masquerade party!  Party Idea Pros will walk you through every step of your celebration providing professional recommendations on just about every detail including including invitations, Decor, Party Favors, Gifts, Masks, Beads, Fun and Game ideas, and lots and lots of little extras.

Just the name Mardi Gras conjures up images of drunken, bead-wearing revelers dancing through the streets of New Orleans. But how, and when, did this huge mid-winter party get started? Here’s a look at the history of Mardi Gras throughout the ages and across the nations.

  • The first Mardi Gras parade was staged in the United States 1837
  • Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday” and of course is celebrated on that day of the week, the day before Ash Wednesday.  The date can fall between February 3 and March 9 depending on the Lunar calendar, used by the Catholic Church to determine the date of Easter. Mardi Gras is always 47 days before Easter Sunday.
  • The official colors for Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold.
    • Purple represents justice
    • Green stands for faith
    • Gold stands for power

An oval cake honoring the three kings is decorated in purple, green and gold colors, representing justice, faith and power, respectively. A small plastic baby, symbolizing the Baby Jesus, is baked into each cake. Whoever gets the piece with the baby not only will have good luck that year, but will also be responsible for bringing the King Cake to next year’s party!

Let Party Idea {Pros} inspire you to throw the most festive Mardi Gras Party outside of New Orleans!
