parties + party ideas
Loving these neon Pinterest ideas today. Have a great weekend guys! (PS – More party pins.)
Epson approached me about creating a party with their PowerLite Home Cinema. My first thought was a party I went to a few summers ago where I went to a movie party in a swimming pool. It was so fun. All you need is a friend with a pool (people with pools tend to make friends easily in the summertime!) and set up a projector. We added a ton of fun floaties and food of course. We also put together a list of the best family movies to watch (download it here!) (PS. Right now, Epson is hosting a giveaway where you could win a projector to host your own movie night this summer! Find out more here.)

Have you ever had a fishing party? Even if you weren’t planning on it, these fish printables are perfect for any modern black & white summer gathering. You can make straw toppers, gift tags, place cards, and garlands all with these simple paper fish. Add in colored plates, napkins, and other fun decor to give this modern nautical party a pop!

When my kids ask for character birthday parties, I like to blend a few special store bought items with a couple homemade touches. (Like this Spiderman party.) Today I’m sharing a Modern Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party we created. I ordered this party pack from Target. It included all the basics – plates, cups, napkins, balloons, candles, etc. I also got a few turtle shells for the kids to dress up in and some other ninja accessories (like these) for them to play with. Then, I did a few simple DIYs to tie the party together. I picked up red, orange, purple and blue felt to make ninja masks for everyone to wear during the party. I made some easy homemade favor bags that we filled with lots of green prizes and treats. For games I made some silver ninja stars for a game where the kids had to throw them into a bucket and a homemade Pin the Turtle on the Pizza. Altogether, this party took less than an afternoon to pull together.

I’m still a huge fan of sending out paper invitations. I love all these cute designs from Tiny Prints. Digital printing is a great way to save time & money when I’m planning a party. Tiny Prints has a ton of great designs to choose from and once you order, they arrive in the mail very fast. Before my kids head back to school (so soon!) I think it would be fun to personalize their notebooks and order a few classroom tags for all their supplies. Here are a few of my favorite supplies in case you want to plan your own party before summer ends:
