Party Decorating Ideas

A New Year & New Party Inspiration!

 Christmas has been packed away and the kids are back in school.  It’s a new year and it’s time for party planning for 2018, organizing the home, and crafting new projects to keep you busy during the cold weather hibernation and to keep the winter blues away.  Today, I’m back to sharing some amazing party setups, like the one above- and by the way- all fans are on SALE in my party shop, The Party Fetti ShopHERE.

Time to get you thinking about birthdays in 2018 (yep, its a good idea to start planning now) – even if those birthdays are months away.

This January, I will help motivate you to organize several areas of your home and share some diy craft tutorials like this one –

Yay! Who could not love making a little vintage thrift store figure into a fabulous party prop. This would look great on the party table at a little girl’s birthday or in a girl’s bedroom.  There is not much to this crafting project –  grab your hot glue gun and embellish your vintage figurine with a paper made mini party hat and pinwheel, add some fringe crepe paper, a ribbon bow, and top it off with a flower and pom pom.  So adorable! I picked up several different vintage figurines at my local thrift store and I can’t wait to start decorating them to sell as room decor and party props in my Etsy shops.

Since all hanging fans are on sale in my shop right now – I thought I would inspire you with several party table backdrops created with fans.  They are the easiest way to decorate at a party and make a big statement.

A mix of pinks and gold would be perfect for this coming Valentine’s Day celebration.

Greens and gold for Saint Patrick’s Day and how about a whole bar cart set up of treats too.

Paper fans can also be used to decorate your fireplace mantel for every holiday- even St. Patrick’s Day.

How about flower themed decor for a celebration in spring like a first communion, a baptism, baby shower, bridal shower or your Easter brunch.

FREE PRINTABLE ART

FREE ART PRINT

LovedFramed

Happy May!

Today I was inspired to create this subway art print from the enduring quote by Saint Basil.  I was traveling last week and encountered the absolute rudest person on the airplane.  Apparently, he was clearly upset that I had to sit next to him because the airplane was full.  Really . . . it was the last seat on the plane- where was I going to sit?  On the wing?  Holy smokes?! I am the one who had to sit in the middle,  sandwiched in between two strangers (and I have a serious personal space need and claustrophobia). . . no window to look out or lean my head against and no aisle space to kick my leg out in.  Yet, he was huffing and puffing about having to get up to let me get seated.  I really had to remember to be KIND and not go all ‘Negan’ on him!

So, I thought this might help to remind myself and others to take a deep breath and try to be more polite to strangers.  If you are traveling this summer, please be polite and patient – none of us truly want to be squirreled in so close together on an airplane ride with complete strangers- but it is the nature of flying, so smile and hold your tongue. Soon you will be landing at your destination and back to your comfort zone.

I printed my design and added it to a frame in my home- so I wanted to share it with you for FREE.

Plan Your Party or Wedding Early

JUMP START YOUR PARTY AND WEDDING PLANNING TODAY

Today, I want to help you start planning your party with a FREE printable party planner that you can print out and start getting ready for this year’s birthday party!  Scroll down for the FREE printable planner.

First, let’s talk about what is trending for birthday parties and baby showers for 2017.  Custom prints and personalized party decor is hot!

Oh sure, you could shop at that big box retail party store, but why? If you are planning ahead by at least 6 to 8 full weeks for an upcoming birthday party, baby shower, wedding, or any celebration- why not order in custom or personalized party decorations to coordinate to your party theme?!

Oh whoa!  Did that planning timeline throw you off? It’s actually smart and less stressful to start planning your children’s birthdays right now.  Why not?  At least start thinking of your theme and/or color scheme and ask them for some input! Even if their birthday is not until August, you can start shopping for custom made to order items on Etsy now.  In fact, you should!  

Sadly, I have to turn so many custom order requests away in the spring and summer months because mothers and brides wait until the last minute to plan and organize their birthday party for their little one’s special day.  I think Etsy shoppers sometimes forget that much of what is offered on Etsy is made to order, after checkout and many seller’s on Etsy have a full-time job.  Mine just happens to be my full-time business as a direct vendor for event planners all over the United States.

Yes, in most cases- I can ship many items from THE PARTY FETTI SHOP right away!  Ready to ship inventory is no problem but for my custom made items, I need my full 14 business day production time, so I can schedule orders out.  During my busiest time of year, spring and summer, I generally have 5 to 8 custom orders a day to get done and shipping out by customer deadlines.

However if you plan ahead, as early as now, custom party decor is the way to go!

Did you know that PINWHEEL PRETTIES offers prints in every party theme to coordinate to your event?

 Every party you can dream up, I’ve got you covered!  Prints in every style are available for a Circus party, Under The Sea, Finding Dora, Rainbow, Polka Dots, and we’ll even help out with Disney themes too!  Some of our top requested design are previewed below –
