Summer Parties – Classic Themes

SUMMER PARTY THEMES

Summer is almost here and its time to start planning that outdoor party!  Today I am sharing a roundup of ideal go-to themed parties for your next celebration.  While most of these are kids birthday parties, they are great summer themes for any event too – a Memorial Day family gathering, a barbacue, an adult backyard party, or an employee corporate event.

So grab your sunhat and cocktail and let’s get going to the party!

First up is the classic Lemonade party.  Nothing says summer like lemons!  This party was complete with an actual lemonade stand too.

Oh you know I love these two parties because both feature big PINWHEELS and the one above with a TISSUE TASSEL GARLAND!

Of course strawberries are synonymous with summer too so they make for the perfect theme at this Strawberry Shortcake party.  Love those PAPER FLOWERS on the candy baskets too.

There is no shortage of fruit at any of these parties- next is a watermelon party complete with little hand cut black seeds added to the pink GLOBES– so clever!

 The spread at this watermelon party tablescape is stunning too.

A cherry party is perfect in the summer.  Love all the printed cherry images and the matching striped STRAWS.

Last is a picnic party at a public park- but this could be easily done in a backyard too.  That over the top cake decorated with miniature ants is adorable.  Anything GINGHAM or red and white checks is absolutely necessary at a picnic themed party- but looks great at any summer party too.

Pinwheels At A Summer Party Or Wedding

PINWHEEL PARTY FAVORS FOR SUMMER OUTDOOR PARTIES

Happy Friday! I’ve had a whirlwind week, after coming back from vacation.  I opened all my Etsy shops back up and the floodgates opened!  Suddenly, everyone was planning a summer party. Somewhere in between getting my custom orders out the door, I had time to make and add several new sets of pinwheels to the Pinwheel Pretties shop too.  Here are some of the new designs-

I have added several sets of ready to ship mini pinwheels, which are also great as cake toppers or cupcake toppers – but I offer my pinwheels in many different wheel sizes. Oh, and I have boxes of more pinwheels to add to the shop, so more designs are coming soon!  Keep in mind my production time during this busy spring and summer season is 2 weeks but I do offer lots of pinwheels that are ready to ship and can go out in the mail within a few days- Ready To Ship Pinwheels

I just added these today. Perfect for a My Little Pony party!

I’m now offering unicorn pinwheels in pastels and also bright colors.

These are great for a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse party.

Some adorable prints in little elephants, tiny feet, and onesies – perfect for a gender reveal baby shower!

Any little girl would love these at her Disney Princess party- these feature princess crowns, dresses, and castles.

These will be coming soon in my wedding shop too – I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs

Beautiful flowers and damask designs perfect at any wedding ceremony or a great activity for the kids table at the wedding reception to keep them busy.

Finally, some extra large size pinwheels that I custom created this last week for a bride for her adorable two flower girls to carry down the aisle at her wedding ceremony.  Each one features their names in cursive cut in the center. Love these!  This bride actually shipped this lovely Quartz color cardstock to me to make her pinwheels – since this unusual color is part of her wedding color scheme and I could not find it locally. I was happy to create these for her- they came out stunning!

Be sure to stop by any of my shops for all your party decorating needs or if you are planning a summer wedding-

Moving Once Again

MOVING SALE!

Yep. It’s happening again.  The Hayes home and my design studio are all moving soon.  Again! Hmmfff. . . and happy dance!

We have outgrown our current remodeled ranch home and my booming business now calls for more space! Not to mention, I am thrilled because we are looking at new construction.

Wha hoo! So excited to be getting a new home soon.  Okay, so that house above is not our new home but I’ve always dreamed of having a Victorian style home with a big wrap around porch.  I’m sure that is not going to happen since we are looking at houses built in the last year or so.  Still, a girl can dream!

Since the move is around the corner, the updates and party inspiration here on the blog will be on a short hiatus.  No worries though- I’ll be back with some great new party ideas to share soon. If time permits, in between packing boxes, I’ll share some great staging tips for selling your home in the future.  I once worked as a designer for a home builder – so I have some wonderful advice to share.

The move is great news for you too if you are planning a party or wedding!
