Let’s Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest!

Big news today! The palace officially confirmed the Prince William and Duchess Katherine (Kate Middleton) are expecting a baby.  And as you well know – we are obsessed with everything Kate!

So we thought, wouldn't it be fun to host a “Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest.”   Send us your ideas, your photos, and your link to your own Party Idea {Pros} Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest pinterest board (be sure to name it this) and you will be entered into a contest to receive a royal baby shower basket.   In the basket will be a selection of the most liked products featured on our own Party Idea Pros Plan a Royal Baby Shower Contest Pinterest Board. (More details to follow – please be patient and give us a few days to work out all the details. At this point we are thinking the basket will include the most liked item in each  category – ie invitations & stamps, place cards, party favors, centerpieces, candles, party supplies and paper goods (for 16 guests) baby gifts, party games, and party decor.)

How will we populate our board? We will choose our favorite products from the ones you submit and those we find on our own and will post them to this pinterest board.  All you need to do is follow this board and like your favorite items.  7 days after the baby is born we will throw a baby naming party and announce the winner of the basket!  That's it.

We'll start it off with the featured boy and girl Royal Welcome Photo Baby Shower Invitations with matching address labels and thank you cards from Tiny Prints.  So cute!  And Zazzle has a ton of darling royal baby shower invitations! Our favorite is probably the Blue & Gold Royal Prince or the very simple Little Prince Invitations

And look – we have already found an adorable party kit!

New!

Loving Claudia Party Designs printable royal princess party invitations, decorative banners, thank you tags, and cupcake toppers.

So let's get this party going!

Party Hearty!

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!
