A Harvest House Warming

2 Aug

We are throwing a house warming party in September, so of course I have to start planning now! I mean, come on, there is only a month and a half to plan this thing. I have been dying to do a wine tasting party and since that won’t really be feasible with the number of guest we have attending I decided to elaborate on that theme and do a harvest house warming. I want to do lots of DIY craft ideas to keep decor cost on the lower side. I have put togther a couple of inspiration boards for a few ideas. What do you think?

I love Pottery Barn, I just wish someone from their desgin team could come to my house and decorate the whole thing! Of course they would fund the decorating as well. Below, all images are from Pottery Barn, the inspiration for my party.

Party Time!

So you want to throw a party, but the whole idea seems a little overwhelming and a bit daunting? Where do I start? What should the theme be, where is it going to take place, who should I invite, where do I get the supplies?! Ok, Ok one step at a time! First, I always think of a theme even if it’s just a few colors that I want to thread throughout the party. Here are a few websites that will help you pick a theme and buy all the party supplies you need to ensure your party is epic…or at least it will look really good!

Birthday Party Express Why you’ll love it: It’s a one-stop shop. It has a ton of theme ideas and everything is packaged together so you don’t need to stress that the party hats match the plates, etc.

Oriental Trading Co.- Why you’ll love it: It’s great for bulk purchases, such as favors, or prizes for games. They have endless options.

Party City– Why you’ll love it: It has great sales and great variety.

Ikea– Why you’ll love it: It’s the dark horse of party supplies, but you can get some great paper goods for good deals and the colors are just a little bit different.

Save on Crafts– Why you’ll love it: This site is for my DIYers, so of course I am in love with it. If you are looking to get creative then this is your site. They also have the must current trends when it comes to entertaining.

1st Birthday Cupcake Bash

Lately I have been loving kids birthday party ideas. I don’t have any kids of my own yet so when my friend who is throwing her little girls first birthday party came to me for some ideas I couldn’t be more excited to help. The theme is cupcakes, what is cuter then that for a little girl?

An easy way to decorate for a kid’s birthday party are with banners and table decor. I love the cupcake themed paper decorations from Get The Party Started. The Etsy shop will also work with you to customize your order, so if the colors aren’t exactly right you can change them!

Another cute way to dress up the party is to have the party guests dress up. Now I know that party hats seem out dated but I can’t imagine anything cuter then a bunch of little girls dressed in the adorable party hats from Booptey Lu’s.

Of course anyone that knows me is aware of my lantern and pompom infatuation. I couldn’t resist when I spotted this cupcake themed party from Ander Ruff. They did a cute make your own cupcake party theme complete with personalized bottles of milk for the end.

Last but not least my favorite party decoration. Balloons, of course! They are an inexpensive way to make a big statement, and is a must have at a first birthday party. Check out this adorable picture from Kara’s Party Ideas.
