Ice Cream Party, Part 2

If you want to step the ice cream social up a notch, turn it into a full blown pool party! If there are quite a bit of adult guests, make sure to spike their sundaes ;-) .

For an added personal touch, send out custom-made invitations.  I suggest using pairs of plastic sunglasses as invitations. Grab a silver or gold metallic pen and inscribe the information on each lens. Wrap the glasses in bubble wrap and send out to all your guests.

Voila. You’ve just invited people to your party and simultaneously handed out favors. You’re welcome. :-D

Ice Cream Party

The weather these days screams for an ice cream party. It’s Memorial weekend and we all know this holiday basically kicks off summer events, so gather the kiddos and start planning an ice cream social. School, for most, is out in about a month so get a few flyers together and invite your little one’s classmates to an end of the year ice cream party.

If you’d like to make the party more festive, use plastic table covers in your child’s school colors. You can set up a sundae bar with every imaginable topping in disposable plastic bowls to make the event more interactive. Set up for backyard games like water balloon fights, relay races, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Baby Shower Favors, Ideas

I had quite a busy schedule of social events planned this past weekend. The sister of a close friend of mine hosted a baby shower in honor of her unborn baby boy. :-D Her sister made little baby pins for each of the guests to wear at the party and they are the most adorable favors/trinkets ever.

The pins were baby boy dolls constructed from crepe paper (with hair and everything)! Clearly, the project sounds time consuming, but with a little help, I’m sure anyone can pull it off. She used peach (any other skin tone color will work) crepe paper for the head, and stuffed it with soft cotton material. She also cut out little arms and legs. The body was made from pastel blue crepe paper (pink or yellow may be used depending on whether the sex of the baby is known or not) and stuffed with cotton as well). Two little brown strands of crepe paper were rolled and used as hair. She then took a blue glitter pen to inscribe “It’s A Boy!” on the body, and a permanent marker to add eyes and a smile.

Lastly, glue pins to the back of the dolls, and voila: wearable party favors.

Baseball Season!

Little League baseball is in its last weeks (if it isn’t over for your little one already) and MLB is well into its second month. Sporting events are so exhilarating and entertaining – whether you’re playing or witnessing history (pitcher throws a perfect game during his debut…on Mother’s Day).

My youngest sibling’s last game is this weekend and the Team Mom is working on putting together that last get together for the boys. If your child will continue on to the All Stars (congratulations!), then get ready for more early games and tons of practice.

Celebrate the end of the season or the fact that it is the season. Shop our Baseball Party Supplies to create a team atmosphere for your up and coming athlete or to set the mood when hosting your next game night!
