Mermaid + Merman Under the Sea Summer Party

This week I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I sat down to make this week’s party idea board. I wanted something that would be fun for kids, boys and girls, and would be a hit this summer. I came up with the idea of having a mer-people (that’s mermaids and mermen) inspired party. Naturally, it would be fantastic if this was based around a beach location, but I think a pool party would be just as fun.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Christmas Eve Cookies and Milk Party Ideas

Hello! And Merry Christmas! As Christmas Eve is drawing nearer to completion, and everyone is getting snuggled up in their comfiest of PJs, why not gather the family together and have a little midnight par-tay? Ok, maybe not AT midnight, but late night, when it is dark, and cold out and it’s about “that time” to get everyone to bed.

What if you had a little family PJ party, with some warm milk and a few cookies? A few cookies mind you – you’ve gotta leave some for Santa! This would be such a fun bonding opportunity for your family or just your other half, and a great new tradition. You don’t even have to open presents. Just get some cookies, your PJs and sit around the lit tree with all the other lights off. It’s a pretty magical moment. Plus, you can get some uber cute pictures of the little ones!

Here’s what I had in mind: (and yes – paper plates and small servings are PERFECT for this last minute get together!)

Comic Book Party Ideas

So it turns out tomorrow, September 25th, is National Comic Book Day! Who knew? I didn’t know they had this holiday, but apparently it’s been around for a while. Did you know it was an official day?

I thought I would put together an inspiration board to help get your creative juices flowing if you were throwing a little get together to celebrate. This could also be a helpful resource if you were having a super hero party, a hero party, a villains party….or really a lot of kid party ideas. Here’s what I’m thinking:

You’re Invited: Easter Peeps Birthday Party for Kids

Do you know any kids with birthdays near Easter?

I always wondered if the kids who had birthdays on or around Easter got the short end of the presents-stick, like the kids with Christmas birthdays. But then I got to thinking, the kids with birthdays on or around Easter and Halloween probably have it MADE.

Think about it. During that time, there is literally TONS of yummy candy lining every available store shelf. Those kids can have one heck of an awesome candy party!

That got me thinking about if MY birthday was near Easter, and I was a kid, what kind of party would I want to have? And I immediately thought “PEEPS PARTY”. Naturally I just had to make a party inspiration board for something that cute. Here’s what I came up with:

Snowman Birthday Party Ideas

Are you nice and cozy and warm?  As I write this I am, but I know January in Florida is some of our coldest time of the year.  In fact, I’m pretty sure it is colder now then it was around Christmas.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the “snow cold”, just “Florida cold” here, so we don’t get to make snowmen any time of the year, much less after Christmas. One of my wishes as a kid was to have a snowman birthday party. I thought that should be the inspiration for this week’s idea board. So without further ado:

Little Monster Bash Ideas

Boo!

Happy October! I’m so excited it’s October aren’t you? Not so much because I’m a Halloween fan or anything, but more because my holiday decorating whims are a little more justified. The stores near me have already had their fully set up and decorated CHRISTMAS TREES on display for several weeks now….WHY?! I have no idea why, but whatever, they are up.

Today’s inspiration board is for those of you with little monsters of your own. I thought hosting a “monster bash” for the little ones would be soo adorable! I could just imagine a room full of cute little monsters running around….Anyways, staying focused!

I think this would be a wonderful theme for a birthday celebration, or just a traditional Halloween party. But honestly, as a grown adult I would totally go to a cute-sy monster bash! Wouldn’t you?

To get you in the mood, make sure to have this video playing in the background:

Ok, now you are ready:

Beach Themed {Poolside} Birthday Party

You know what’s NOT fun? Back to school anything. Every year it seems like kids summers are getting shorter and shorter. This year I saw “back to school” ads as early as June! Some kids are still IN school in June. That is just crazy. I ask you, what is the world coming to?

So what does that have to do with anything? Well, moral of the story is we need to help make summer last! I’d make it a national campaign if I had the funding…… Now I get it, not everyone lives beach side, or has beach worthy weather year round, I get it I do. BUT if the weather is right, I think you could host a beach themed birthday party (or end of summer party) up through August, maybe even early September. And why shouldn’t you really? Think of it as a grand finale, a final sunset if you will, to summer.

Here is my mood board for hosting a party such as this:
