Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials

Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials

Thanksgiving is without doubt my favorite holiday — beautiful tables, great food, and none of the stress associated with the winter holidays. This is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones whether they be family or friends. So first things first, if you haven’t yet made your travel arrangements, the time is NOW!

Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor

Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables! In complete disclosure – since we live in San Diego, beautiful weather made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving outdoors.  Simple solar powered patio lights and lots of candles provided enough light even after sunset.  As you can see, we tried to mix elegant with fanciful touches.

It’s that time of year everyone–wedding season is upon us! And Amazon is running a wedding registry sweepstakes for brides- and grooms-to-be!

For those of you who will be tying the knot this year, congratulations! If you’re still looking for a place to register, or want to add a convenient registry for guests, Amazon has a great program that allows you to register for anything on their site.

The winner of the sweepstakes will receive an amazing Honeymoon Getaway Package to Costa Rica that includes airfare, five nights at the Hacienda AltaGracia, daily breakfast, a 90-minute horseback riding session, a Lenox dinnerware package service for eight, and a $1,500 Amazon gift card.

In order to be eligible to win the Honeymoon Getaway Package all you have to do is create an Amazon Wedding Registry before May 31, 2016 and add at least one Lenox item to your registry to be automatically entered into the sweepstakes.

Pirate Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Let Party Idea {Pros} walk you through every step of your child’s pirate birthday party including pirate party invitations,  decor, food ideas,  pirate fun and games and even pirate costumes for children.

Party Idea Pros has 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 guest 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!!!!!   Save money – skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Many of the products here also work for pirate theme baby showers!

For a great kids pirate theme party there are only a few essentials:

  • A great invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
  • A toy treasure chest or pirate ship, and gold coins for  your centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the pirate party kits – you can always make them a little less commercial by adding balloons and some of your own pirate accessories.
  • Four  activities:  a “doing” activity such as a home “treasure hunt” a craft activity such as  decorating a treasure chest, and a game activity  like, “capture the pirate flag” or “pirate tug of war”,  and to end the party you absolutely must break the pirate ship pinata.  As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.
