Hobbit Day Woodland Party Ideas

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:

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:

May the Fourth {Black and White} Star Wars Wedding – Inspiration and Ideas

Happy *ALMOST* May the Fourth!

For those of you who have NO CLUE what I’m talking about, May fourth, also known as May the Fourth, is International Star Wars Day. And if you hadn’t guessed already it’s a play on the quote “May the force be with you”.

I’m a bit of a fan girl myself, so I couldn’t let an opportunity like this pass by. I love alternative and geek weddings, so I knew I had to make one HECK of an inspiration board for this holiday.

I decided to do a play on the colors of Star Wars, the notably black, white and yellow, and turn it into a wedding for the modern fan couple. While there are lots of Star Wars details and elements involved, there are still lots of traditional elements of a wedding, like a cake, floral, etc. that have had a bit of a geeky-god-mother-twist on them.

For example, take a look at the gorgeous wedding ceremony spot I found. It completely looks like Padme Amidala could walk by any moment to head over to the lake. I love the black floral details in it, don’t you?

Let’s take a look at the inspiration in more detail:
