Best Holiday Party Theme – Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Best Holiday Party Theme of 2012 - Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

The 2012 holiday season is definitely the year to host{ess} a pink snowball holiday party.  With Hostess declaring bankruptcy this week the end of an era has arrived.  If you hurry you may still be able to pick up a few packs of classic Hostess Sno Balls – the long popular chocolate creme filled cakes covered in marshmallow and then covered in coconut flakes.  Better yet, start a new holiday tradition – throw a Pink Snowball baking party! This theme would also work great as an adorable winter bridal or baby shower, a great sorority holiday party, teacher appreciation holiday luncheon, or a sweet sixteen or Quinceanera party!

We can’t believe after lots, and lots of searching we finally found invitations, stamps, centerpieces (just add pink or white tightly packed carnations arranged to resemble a snowball or better yet top with an edible sno ball!), and matching aprons that all coordinate  perfectly with this party theme.  We even found a recipe for homemade hostess sno balls.

Even though coconut is my least favorite food of all time, I must admit this has to be the best holiday party theme of 2012.

Blue, Gold & Red Faux Tin Decorative Ceiling Tiles

Today we received an email from one of our favorite wedding stationery merchants, Wedding Paper Divas, sending us to their Real Wedding blog that features the vibrant, Indian wedding of Jasmit (Jesse) and Deepika, at the Hyatt Manchester Grand, in San Diego, California. The couple was married on 9/23/2011–exactly 11 years from their original anniversary in high school, 9/23/2000.

We have juxtaposed some of their gorgeous wedding photos, courtesy of True Photography, against these colorful blue, red, & gold faux tin decorative ceiling tiles because we believe these faux tin tiles would make a stunning photography backdrop for any Indian wedding celebration as well as any Bollywood inspired movie, television or theatrical set.  In the past we have featured faux tin tiles as a fabulous option for vintage chic outdoor wedding photography backdrops but clearly decorative ceiling tiles are incredibly versatile and can be used in a myriad of settings.

Wedding Paper Divas did not indicate what wedding invitation the couple chose which is especially surprising since the company has  quite a nice selection of invitations whose designs reflect this rich and graphic culture.  Here are a few of our favorites.

Winter Wonderland Mitten Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Winter Wonderland is undoubtedly one of our most popular party packages, all year round.  Obviously it is a perfect theme for holiday parties, but it also works well for all winter events including bridal & baby showers,  adult & children’s birthday parties, sweet sixteen parties, quinceanera celebrations, proms, fundraisers and college parties of all kinds.  Every year my son’s fraternity threw a major Let it Snow philanthropy event  replete with snow and and lots of girls dressed in adorable snow bunny costumes.  This theme is also completely appropriate for classroom holiday parties since mittens are pretty innocuous and non-denominational.Snow Bunny Adult Costume

Merry Mittens Postage Stamp

As we were updating our Winter Wonderland and Gingerbread Delights party packages we realize that one of our favorite products are the adorable mini felt winter mittens that can be used as place cards or party favors or table decorations and we got to wondering if their were enough other mitten theme products that could be bundled together to create a warm and inviting mitten theme party.  The answer is a resounding yes!  We love the Winter Wonderland Mitten Invitations and this coordinating  Merry Mittens Postage Stamp to set the mood for a mitten theme party.  The fact that there are personalized banners, paper goods, lollipops, and fun party crafts and activities all with a mitten theme means there is plenty of products to work with especially if you add a bit of snowflake decor and a retro vintage vibe to the event.  This pastel blue and dusty red color palette is all the rage and is particularly fitting with this theme.  This theme would also look adorable with a bit of chalkboard chic thrown into the mix

We had to post this picture as soon as we saw it. Leave it to Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively’s Gossip Girl character) to wear 2013’s latest trend in wedding dresses – gold & white.  This fabulous Georges Chakra Couture strapless gown with a low back is all a-glitter on top and then explodes into a white tulle bottom.  It really is so Serena!

There are not yet many affordable gold and white ball gown style wedding dresses available but we are all over this trend so keep checking back as we discover options for you to “get the look.”

We are thinking a full out white and gold wedding theme replete with gorgeous white and gold wedding invitations, party decor, and wedding cake.
