What is Doc McStuffins?
Dot McStuffins is an animated Disney Channel series that chronicles the life and adventures of a girl named Dottie “Doc” McStuffins. Dottie decides she wants to become a doctor like her mother. She practices her dream by fixing toys and dolls. When she puts on her stethoscope, toys, dolls, and stuffed animals come to life and she can interact with them. With help from her stuffed animal friends – Stuffy the Dragon, Hallie the Hippo, Lambie the Lamb, and Chilly the Snowman – Doc helps toys recover, or “feel better”, by giving them check-ups and diagnosing their illnesses with an encyclopedia called “The Big Book of Boo Boos”.

Is your child (or you) a Lego fanatic? If so, a Lego party may be an ideal theme for this year’s birthday party. It is unique, colorful, and yes, playful.
The minute we discovered the featured Lego Party favor boxes, cookies & candies on Beau-coup, our “go to” party favor site, we knew we had to find anything and everything related to hosting a Lego theme birthday party. As we searched for the best of the best in Lego theme party supplies, we realized that often, probably due to trademark, copyright, and other legal restrictions, some of the best Lego party supplies are referred to as blocks, brix, and even blox. Whatever the name, we promise your guests will still recognize them as Legos. Continue Reading →
From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be's. Rather than being authentic 70's and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes. It is a little like home decorating. All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy. We always say don't choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes. Why buy fake 70's clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year's festival wear. Continue Reading →

Just a quick note on Party Idea Pros approach to children’s parties.
We have an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties. We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple. We love hula hoops, beach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments. Generally, the number of guests should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two. Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!! Skip the jumpies and the pony rides. Continue Reading →
