Party + Wedding Ideas
You've got a party to throw? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find our favorite party ideas. Showers, Birthday parties, Anniversaries, and Weddings all in one spot! Ideas we came up with and links to the best ones on the web.
Here are our favorite posts from the spring. I always get a fresh wave of inspiration during this time of the year. This spring, we finished some of the rooms in our new home, traveled to China, France & Morocco, and worked on a bunch of fun projects in the studio. Our team put together some great posts for Easter, Mother’s Day, May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Father’s Day, and 4th of July. Did you try any? (PS - Part 1 of our 2014 Year in Review.)
Each December we like to do a 4-part series that highlights our favorite projects from the past year. It’s always fun to go through the archives. We feel so lucky to have an awesome team of contributors. Anyway, without further ado here are our favorite posts from January through March.

This New Years, surprise your friends with poppers that are filled with… popcorn! These poppers are easy to assemble and can be made in any color you choose. You’re friends will love these treats even if they are a bit “corny.” Ha!

Here is a little idea that would be perfect for a winter party. Even if you are having a simple get together, a little attraction like a hot cocoa bar is fun and easy way to add something more interesting than a usual spread. I’ve never made homemade marshmallows and I asked my friend Andrea to show me how. She made these amazing striped marshmallows for us (recipe below) that is not only beautiful but delicious. We set up this bar with candies and cookies to mix into the hot cocoa but you could also have some spiking options to turn the hot chocolate into an adult friendly beverage. We bought all the ingredients for our bar from Boxed (they are sponsoring this post!) which is a great online shopping site that allows users to get warehouse club prices, like Costco – without any membership fees. They have a great variety of brands including Annie’s, Mrs. Meyers and Honest Co so you can get all your household, cleaning & grocery supplies for the holidays by just using their smart phone app. Plus, they do all the heavy lifting! Once your order’s been made, they deliver everything right to your doorstep. Your package will arrive in 2 days or less and shipping is free for your first order (after that on orders over $75.) We decided to use their service to plan a big holiday hot chocolate party. We needed supplies in bulk, so Boxed was the perfect solution. It was so easy and left us with tons of extra time to make a batch of fresh marshmallows before the party started!
