Front Entry Party Decorating

FRONT ENTRANCE DECORATING IDEAS

We all know how much we love to decorate our exterior home entrance for the holidays, especially for Halloween, Christmas and for Easter – this entry above is stunningly arranged with flowers and Easter decor for a welcoming spring front door.

What about for a birthday party? Why not welcome your guests to the home party or summer barbecue with some color and signage.  Today I am sharing some ideas for getting your front door and exterior entrance ready for your spring or summer party, holiday celebration or even just a backyard barbecue.

This cheerful balloon wreath is ideal for greeting guests for a first birthday!

Last year I added some fun custom made to order signs to my shop just for hanging on the front door to greet party guests – but these are great on wood poles or hanging on the side fence for backyard parties too-

If you are planning a party, add some colorful decor to your front entrance, even something as basic as a hanging sign or a birthday wreath on the door, can help guests find your home and the party!

I personally love some helium inflated colorful balloons, flanking the door, like this set up above. Balloons are an inexpensive way to decorate and just a few will go far with making a statement at your front entry.

Even this very humble set up of only three balloons tied to some wood cut and painted O-N-E letters for a first birthday makes for a grand entrance.  Confetti balloons are trendy right now too and would make the prefect entrance, with two big over-sized giant 24″ or 36″ size balloons flanking the front door! These big balloons are visible from the street and definitely help guests know they are in the right place for the party.

Of course, if you have the means and really want to impress your guests – why not go all out like this party above or with many more balloons, similar to the balloon entrance below-

A fun sign at the end of your driveway or sidewalk to your entrance are also ideal for directional signage and to help guests locate your house for the party.

I love these two clever signs, above for the Pirate themed party and the Dr. Seuss handmade sign for a first birthday party, shown below.

Whatever theme or type of party you are throwing at your home this spring and summer- be sure to decorate your front entrance with some color or signage to welcome your guests as the come through your home’s front door.

Western Party – Cowgirl Cowboy It Up

WESTERN PARTY – COWGIRL & COWBOY THEME 

Yahoo!  Who doesn’t love a western themed party?  Especially since its getting warmer outside in most of the country- and this is the best themed outdoor party!  And who says little girls would not love this party too- we are all little cowboys and cowgirls at heart!  This themed party is fun for kids- because they get to dress up on their birthday!  The adults at the party will love putting on the hats too.  In fact, this is fun to encourage the adults to come dressed up as well!

Be sure to add in some cowboy style hats and bandannas for the kids to wear at the party!  It’s a great idea to add a note in your mailed or emailed birthday invitations that the kids are encouraged to wear cowboy themed attire and cowboy boots for the party too.

Any food is fine at this type of party- but be creative with your food labels and label them with cowboy catchy phrases.

This is great welcome set up- the kids can grab a hat and bandanna upon entering the party.

Rainbow Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

RECIPE FOR RAINBOW ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

Mini-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Pops-7

Actually this easy sweet summer treat is more like a fast how to, rather than a recipe.  Seriously, it’s as simple as cutting your store bought ice cream sammies in half-

. . . and then roll your edges of each ice cream bar in some rainbow sprinkles and add a lollipop stick. Done!

You can serve them immediately or put them back in the freezer to chill before serving. The rainbow sprinkles are great for coordinating to any theme but you can change up your colors of your sprinkles to match any party.  They look stunning standing up on display too.

Ice Cream Sammies with Sprinkles

These are a perfect treat for kids and adults and ideal for summer to keep your guests cool at a barbeque or pool party.
