New Year’s Party Printable Games

As the New Year approaches, all of us here at Party Idea {Pros} are beginning to make plans.  Although I usually host a large New Year's Eve Party, this year my house is in such disarray we have reluctantly acquiesced to join a group of friends at a local restaurant.  At least we won't have to drive very far.

With an eight o'clock dinner reservation, I remain concerned about how we are possibly going to fill four hours.  Yes, everyone in our party are close friends who definitely know how to Party Pretty, and  many of whom are even mildly amusing, but 4 hours seated at a table …

So I am seriously considering bringing with me a stack of printable games.  If nothing else, they will certainly produce loud roars of laughter when I whip them out during a lull in the conversation!  The fact is, I think the games will not only be fun in and of themselves, I think they will serve to jump start some lively conversations.

Beading & Jewelry Making Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Beading & Jewelry Making Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

This morning as I was watching the morning news shows, sipping coffee and enjoying our incredible San Diego summer, I felt almost saddened that many Americans will be forced to spend these last few weeks of summer vacation indoors due to inclement weather. So of course this got me thinking. I called the Party Idea {Pros} gang together and posed today's challenge – Let's create a fun indoor end of summer gal party that can be tailored to kids, teens, college coeds, or even moms needing a break. After a bit of brainstorming we unanimously decided upon

A Jewelry Making & Beading Party

Jewelry Making Party Goals

Create playful, stylin' back to school jewelry or get a jump start on creating DIY holiday gifts

Keep the actual crafting fairly simple so there is plenty of time for sipping, socializing, and nibbling.

Bead Party Inspiration

Before we even began thinking about the party details, we immediately turned to Shopbop (our go to shop for all things trendy) for inspiration. We quickly pulled together this jewelry inspiration board so that when we went looking for beading supplies, invitations, and centerpieces we had a clear direction.

Once we looked at the latest in jewelry designs, we turned to Amazon to see if we could replicate or approximate some of the design features currently being sold by top designers often for hundreds of dollars.

In preparation for the party you might also consider taking a jewelry crafting class in the comfort of your own home

50% off Pack of 450 Printable Games

Printable GamesFor one day only, September 18, 2012, Funsational is offering 50% off its MVP Printable Games Party Collection including new Halloween games.

So sorry – not only has this deal expired, Funsational has closed its doors. But not to worry – Print Games Now has taken up the slack! You can also find lots of fun printable games on Etsy.

Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.

If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.”  Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games.  The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games.  Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush.  So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.

Have Fun and Party Hearty!
