Have you ever had to plan a birthday party at the last minute? In a perfect world, I like to have a few weeks to plan out a theme. But sometimes life gets in the way and it just doesn’t work out like that. So if I need to plan something in a rush, here are 9 things I know I can pick up for an awesome party. All of these items can be found at local stores (Party City, Target, etc.) If you hurry, you could probably do all your shopping and set up in less than 3 hours!

I’m a little embarrassed every time somebody asks me for a business card. Even though I have a letterpress I haven’t made myself business cards in 4 years! Last week I realized I have several conferences and meetings coming up in the next few months (like Alt Summit and Maker’s Summit) and decided to just make some really basic cards. Just a logo on the front and name and email on the back. After they were printed I felt like they needed a little something-something and got an idea for edge-painting stripes on the sides. I loved that when you separate the cards they look like they have little colored confetti around the edges. It was just an idea and I wasn’t sure if it would work but I was really happy with how it turned out. The one disclaimer is that it is really time consuming. Don’t commit to this project unless you need to start a new TV series on DVD.
Valentine’s Day is will be here so soon! Have you stocked up supplies yet? Here are a few that I can’t wait to add to my party closet!
Here’s the last post in our 2013 review. This last quarter was super busy – I did a lot of traveling, attended so many fun events, and moved into our new house! I’m so thankful for all of the contributors who helped keep our content so strong. Also, I’d like to give a huge thank you to all of our readers for continuing to visit Oh Happy Day! You guys are the best. Happy 2014!!!
Here are my favorite posts from this past April – June. Each year in the spring, I get so much inspiration. Spring and Summer is my favorite! It’s so fun to look back at all of these!
