Beading & Jewelry Making Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

This morning as I was watching the morning news shows, sipping coffee and enjoying our incredible San Diego summer, I felt almost saddened that many Americans will be forced to spend these last few weeks of summer vacation indoors due to inclement weather. So of course this got me thinking. I called the Party Idea {Pros} gang together and posed today's challenge – Let's create a fun indoor end of summer gal party that can be tailored to kids, teens, college coeds, or even moms needing a break. After a bit of brainstorming we unanimously decided upon

A Jewelry Making & Beading Party

Jewelry Making Party Goals

Create playful, stylin' back to school jewelry or get a jump start on creating DIY holiday gifts

Keep the actual crafting fairly simple so there is plenty of time for sipping, socializing, and nibbling.

Bead Party Inspiration

Before we even began thinking about the party details, we immediately turned to Shopbop (our go to shop for all things trendy) for inspiration. We quickly pulled together this jewelry inspiration board so that when we went looking for beading supplies, invitations, and centerpieces we had a clear direction.

Once we looked at the latest in jewelry designs, we turned to Amazon to see if we could replicate or approximate some of the design features currently being sold by top designers often for hundreds of dollars.

Pool Party Invitations | Summer Fun

Have you walked outside lately?  We spent a week in New York recently and it was so hot and humid we could barely walk around the block.  We headed down to the beach but got bitten alive by biting flies. All I wanted to do at that time was to jump in a cool clean pool and ever since I have been obsessed with the idea of hosting a pool party.  And now that we are home, we have begun planning just such a party for late August, a celebration of family and friends and  our last chance for some summer fun before the kids go back to school.

Step one – choosing our pool party invitation.  We truly believe that choosing an invitation is the equivalent of choosing the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party! A great invitation — even before the party begins creates a sense of anticipation, especially in children.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.  We are featuring just a few of our favorites from Zazzle,  and if you order quickly you can still take advantage of their Christmas in July sale and save up to 65% off all invitations!  Even if you missed this sale keep your eye out for the banner that runs across the top of the page – and be sure to click it to save!

As we proceed with the plans, we will continue to update you on all the other details for our pool party including party favors, party decor, and even food and drink ideas.

Party Hearty!
