Enchanted Fairy Garden Party Ideas

I would like to have an enchanted fairy garden party. As an adult.

There, I said it.

There is something so fantastically magical about a garden filled with little fairies and butterflies floating around, with toadstool mushrooms and gnomes hidden here and there. With all of the seriousness that being a good grown up involves, I think a nice dose of whimsy should be a prescribed stress reliever.  Something fun, and out of the ordinary. In the case of our enchanted fairy garden party, an outdoor setting doused in plenty of greenery will do the trick.

Of course, in the great party idea bank– also known as Pinterest – there are so many amazing ideas to choose from. I’ve put some of my favorite party ideas together for this themed event, but have pinned nearly 500 other ideas, all along a butterfly, fairy, and garden party –esque theme. Feel free to browse them here.

Here is what I had in mind for this enchanted fairy garden party:

7 Colorful Watercolor Wedding and Party Ideas

Don’t you just love showing up to a wedding or a party and being instantly energized by the vivid colors and pulsating energy produced by the decor and the space? It’s easy to spice up your next soiree by inviting color to your decor design, without turning it into a rainbow painting party (which would also be pretty fun, but I think we’ll save that for another time). This week’s wedding and party ideas board introduces you to 7 colorful watercolor wedding and party images that you should consider for your next event.

While each of these individual images of watercolor event decor ideas can be used together to create a beautiful wedding, they can just as easily be used for a luncheon, birthday party, or any other celebration. I would love to see this concept utilized for a spring time luncheon, in perhaps more pastel shades. But these energizing hues are also perfect for end of spring, beginning of summer soirees.

If you are looking for more ideas for your next painting, watercolor, or art inspired celebration, check out my board on Pinterest with 100’s of more ideas.

Backyard S’mores Party Ideas

It’s crazy to think that the summer is just a few weeks away from being over, and even harder to think about how this time last year, I was designing a party idea board for a backyard movie party under the stars. With today being National S’more’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to add a new party idea board to our growing collection of summertime celebration themes. Why not combine a movie night under the stars with a s’mores campfire session? Seems like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer.

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

Colorful Dinosaur Party Ideas for Girls

Girls like dinosaurs too!

I never got why boys were always the ones having the dinosaur and ninja themed parties, and girls always had to have the spa or princess themed parties. That is just absurd! Girls can like dinosaurs, ninjas, and event racing themed parties too.

And so to honor the strong, confident girls around the world who want to celebrate among dinos, I have put together this week’s inspiration board, for them. The concept was to have a colorful dinosaur birthday party for girls, which was not completely pink, purple and full of gentility.

But you know what I found? It’s actually pretty hard to find dinosaur themed birthday party posts for girls that are not full of princess crowns, tutus, and bright pink. So I thought I would incorporate lots of vibrant colors throughout to make this event perfect for the dino loving little girl that could care less about a tiara and a doesn’t mind what color her dinosaur friends are.
