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 →

And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up  editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.

What are Gender Reveal Parties?

Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower. At the gender reveal party, the guests, and sometimes the parents themselves, will find out the sex of their unborn child. The purpose of the party is to share the news and celebrate with close friends and family.
