We just love amazing bloggers, so starting this week, every Friday we're going to be featuring our most favorite trends, happenings and overall super fab ideas from our favorite party planning bloggers.
This is exciting. We know we have ideas (don't we all), but we really love to do a little thing called collaborating. Call me crazy, but more often than not, two heads are much better than one. So bring on the fun, the fab, the over the top or super simple easy DIY ideas to spruce up your next party!
And there are already so many things we love!
Take a look at this girls! I know, I know... it's a wedding. But these elements could just as easily be worked into a shower or engagement party for that couple who just can't get enough of October baseball. These events should be unique to the couple, or the bride-to-be, so make it special and think outside the box.
Obviously, I'm a big fan of the super cute favors, the " Hey Batter, Batter" pancake mix, the candy concessions, baseball centerpieces and the "Will Call" table where guests could locate their ticket, er... place card. So cute! Check out the whole thing here.
So much fun right? I'm also a sucker for inspiration boards. I love, love, love them. It's the perfect way to get a visual idea of your theme party, cocktail party or engagement party before you start planning. I love this summer infused inspiration board from Postcards and Pretties. Summer is coming, and this inspiration board is the perfect way to get those party planning ideas flowing.
And finally... Balloons. I love balloons. Even as a kid I loved them. There's something so wonderful about looking up at a beautiful, bright balloon against the sky. I love using childlike elements like balloons in adult birthday parties or engagement parties or even bridal showers. They're super festive and so much fun! Plus, you get to look like that little animated cutie from Upwhen you're walking on the Upper West Side carrying 50 balloons in bulk. I mean... does it get any better than that? Let's be clear. Balloons are just better en masse. There's something pretty magical about a room filled with brightly colored balloons dangling from the ceiling. Magical.
Some of my favorite balloon inspiration for parties...
