Taco and Tequila Tuesday Party Ideas

Who loves tacos? Let me rephrase: who DOESN’T love tacos? And really, what could go better with tacos then tequila?

Did you think of anything yet?

Fresh made guacamole was a close second in my mind… but that’s just the healthy one in my talking.

This week’s inspiration board is all about color, fun, and yummy food inspired by the always loved, taco Tuesday celebration. I’ve included the best taco bar, nacho bar, salsa bar AND tequila bar I could find on the internet in this inspiration board.

Here’s what I had in mind for this week’s party idea board:

Did you know yesterday was Hobbit Day? Apparently my nerdy-ness level has been down ranked since I just found out about it myself. But you know what? That’s why we have sites like Pinterest, so we can bookmark ideas for future use. With that in mind – I put together this party inspiration board for Hobbit Day 2016 (and beyond!) and all your future Lord of the Rings party needs. Here’s what I had in mind for this outdoor party:

Pops of Polka Dots Soiree Inspiration

You know those days, where you just see something and it’s just lovely? It’s bright and cheery, and just brings a smile to your face when you see it? Maybe it’s a bunch of fresh flowers. Or maybe it’s a decadent dessert in a bakery window. There’s something special other there for everyone, custom tailored to make that person’s day.

For me, something that brings a huge smile to my face is my inspiration boards. I always love making them, and I am especially fond of the ones that instill an extra sense of happiness when looking at them, even on an unconscious level. There’s just something about this week’s idea board that sparks that in me, and I hope it has that effect on you too.

This week, I wanted to create a bright, cheery board sure to brighten up your day, and hopefully your guest’s days too. This theme can be used for a wedding or gala, a fundraiser, milestone anniversary party, or toned down to be a baby shower or luncheon color theme.

The touches of polka dots really help add the fun to this black and white inspiration board with those accents in yellow. Here’s what I had in mind:

Birthday Bear Picnic Ideas for National Teddy Bear Day

I just love it when I discover unusual holidays I never knew existed. In fact, today’s party idea board was inspired by “Teddy Bear Day”, which is apparently celebrated today, September 9. I took it one step further and turned this into a picnic party. Originally I wanted to go for a sleep over theme, but after reading about how there is actually a Teddy Bear Picnic Day (in July) I just had to create something marvelous around that.

Just about all of these elements could easily be translated indoors or outdoors. A few white sheets and some kid friendly snacks can make for quite the play party out in a local park, or even in your back yard. This is a classic, year round party theme you can’t go wrong with.

Here’s what I had in mind, and be warned….cuteness incoming!

Honeycomb Summertime Wedding Ideas

A warm summer’s afternoon, with just the slightest breeze in the air, and the sweet smell of fresh honey wafting ever so slightly towards you. That’s the atmosphere I could see this week’s inspiration board thriving in. A bit eclectic. A bit untraditional. A splash of country chic. Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I try to describe to you what I had in mind for this week’s idea board.

In a perfect word, a rustic farmers market on the edge of the country area with a fresh field of wildflowers would be the location where this celebration would take place. I think a local garden would do just fine too!

Here’s what I had in mind:
