Pink Winter Onederland Birthday Party

Pink Winter One-derland Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

A few weeks ago we took a first stab at a pink snowman party.  Today we are refining the vision to create an adorable little girl’s first birthday celebration.

The inspiration is this Zazzle invitation – Karl, we agree, the cute little pink cap beats the traditional snowman hat, hands down.  We did not want the save the date to match the invitation so together we came up with a coordinating look to set the party’s tone yet not take away from the invitation itself.

Peppa Pig Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Peppa Pig Party

Peppa Pig Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Peppa Pig is all the rage and rightfully so.  It is hard not to be glued to the television as this adorable little girl pig, her family, and other animal friends, all bearing human characteristics, go about their everyday activities. Just like the boys and girls watching these 5 minute episodes, they attend playgroup, go swimming, visit relatives, go to the playground and ride bicycles. All the while, the narrator of the series reinforces the action and humor, saying things like “Oh, dear” when something unfortunate happens (such as George starts crying) or “Look out!” when a character is doing something unsafe (such as Peppa riding her bicycle without looking where she’s going). If you have not yet caught an episode, just ask your son or daughter what channel to watch!

Snowman Theme Girls 1st Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Snowman Theme Girls 1st Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Today we received an email seeking ideas for a snowman theme girl’s 1st birthday party.  We loved the idea and once we started searching, we had trouble reigning ourselves in.  Although we gained inspiration from some of our other  Winter Wonderland  party packages, this party needed to be different – we wanted it to be pink!

We always like to start with the invitations because to us invitations are like the title of a paper – they set the tone for the entire party. We particularly like the wording of the light blue and pink card inviting guests to join them for Winter Onederland Fun!  How adorable is that for a January winter birthday party!

Next we searched for paper party goods.  We could not find anything particularly girly so we decided this might be the perfect occasion to create your own party kit. All you need to do is peel and stick an adorable pink snowman label / sticker onto a solid pink paper plate and cup. Best of all most of the stickers can be personalized to wish a happy day to the birthday girl!

Retro Paper Straws

...Retro Paper Straws

Retro Paper straws are all the rage.  They not only add a fun vibe to your table decor, they add color and a dash of whimsy.  As you can see we have featured them individually displayed in mason jars in our patriotic theme parties.  Sometimes we even add an antenna ball on top.  For my own son’s Bar Mitzvah we topped MLB antenna balls on coordinating straws and used them as place cards at the entrance to party.  Just yesterday, my sister threw a handful of striped paper straws in a paper cup – just the right touch for her Labor Day barbecue.

Both Swoozies and Amazon has a nice collection of retro paper straws.  Consider using the pink and blue polka dot straws for your next baby shower.  We love the mini bat straws and orange and black stripe straws for Halloween parties.  The red and green stripe straws are a must have for your cookie baking holiday parties.  The yellow stars straws would be an adorable adder to a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party.  And we believe the yellow & grey stripe straws are elegant enough to use at a chic, vintage chalkboard chic wedding reception. Another idea — choose your sorority colors for your next house party.

One more idea for children’s birthday parties … choose a variety of straws and cut them into 1 – 2 inch strips. Now string them together to create cute paper necklaces.  The leftovers can be used for  every day, at lunch and dinnertime.

Party Hearty!

RadRingz™

RadRingz Princess PackRadRingz Hipster PackRadRingz Rock Pack

RadRingz™

The makers of Silly Bandz recently introduced a new line of products called RadRingz™.    RadRingz™ come in styles very similar to Sillybandz with each ring pack  featuring 1 Ring, 2 Words and 1 Icon all for $6.95 and insert packs featuring 3 slides for just $3.95.  Initially Silly Brandz is releasing 3 stock styles with many more to come in the following weeks.  The company press release claim the product is amazing stating that “when showcasing the Rad Ringz for the test groups we have actually had girls scream.” The product is highly stylized and in true Sillybrandz fashion Rad Ringz offers the opportunity for the wearer to Collect Em, Trade Em, Wear Em adding to the allure of the product and the opportunity for creating yet another craze by Sillybrandz Global.  Sillybrandz is thrilled with the product and very excited to send it to a few of its partners sure that RadRingz™ would receive raving reviews.

Rather than pre-disposing you one way or another — check them out for yourself and let us know what you think!

Update!  Since we did not receive any positive feedback from our visitors, we simply cannot hold our tongues any longer — our gut reaction to RadRingz was that they were just plain ugly (and wouldn’t even work as napkin rings)  so we decided to test them at a children’s party.  The kids too thought they were atrocious — they couldn’t find one positive thing to say about them.  So, we have gone ahead and removed our links to this product because the bottom line is –if you don’t like it and we  don’t like it, we won’t promote it!
