Sandcastle Place Cards

by Kathleen Ballos

Remember the mini Putz houses that you see in the winter time? Well that’s what inspired these glittering sandcastle place cards! Eating picnic snacks was one of my favorite things about going to the beach when I was younger – if you’re not close to the water, wouldn’t it be fun to host a beach picnic party indoors? And if you’re looking for more miniature beach party supplies, try these beach cake toppers!

World Cup Swizzel Sticks

by Ashley Page Norton 

Is everyone watching the World Cup? For me, this summer will be remembered as very World Cup focused – I’ve loved watching as many games as I can get to. It’s sad that the U.S. is out but there are still some amazing games left to watch – the remaining four teams play this week to determine who’s in the final on July 13th! Here is a quick way to make some soccer ball drink stirrers to use at a viewing party. They come together easily, despite having a tricky shape (the pentagon) on the ball!

Handmade Confetti and DIY Confetti Throwers

Sometimes store bought confetti doesn’t come in the right colors for the party we are having, in that case we make our own handmade confetti. It is really easy to make, I just throw on a movie while I cut. For this project I used a trick I learned in Paris where you just fill a plastic tube with confetti and hand them out to all your guests. With just a flick of the wrist the confetti propels out of the tube and goes everywhere. Perfect for surprise parties or weddings! The tissue paper at Paper Mart has always been my favorite. It comes in the best colors and is so affordable.
