The ‘winter onederland’ party theme for a first birthday, is a bit dated and overdone now, so I wanted to share some unique and more out of the ordinary party ideas. I feel like winter babies get the short straw when it comes to their birthday party – most are indoor parties due to colder weather so these months limit outdoor parties and activities.

However, who says, you can’t draw on the beauty of winter and incorporate the surroundings of the season into a winter birthday party? The nutcracker parties, featured above and below with an emphasis on the color pink, are the perfect example for a girl’s birthday, especially if she loves dance or ballet.

Incorporating pastel colors will always pair well with a winter theme.  Snowflakes are of course traditional but not necessary to pull off a winter birthday party.

Be sure to get input from the birthday boy or girl- especially if they are older.  Teens usually want to help plan the party and even decorate!  Let them make some big decisions about the theme and decor each year – it’s a great way to teach them to be a great hostess too!

The soft pastels in the sweets and decor on this food table above, at this teen girl’s party, is fun and whimsical. The added cotton candy puffs on top of the cupcakes are so creative too!  Incorporating the sweater stockings adds an unusual table backdrop as well.

This narwhal party above is the perfect example of using a creative and trendy theme for a winter party. Narwhals have been gaining popularity as a spin off of the unicorn party theme and since they are winter creatures, they work well for a winter party.

Finally, this snowman themed party is traditional and perfect for a winter birthday. Wow! That snowman cake looks simple to make, yet stunning on the table, and yummy.

Now for some stunning summer party ideas that you can pull off at your summer birthday celebration, barbecue, baby shower, fundraiser, corporate event, or just about any type of summer outdoor activity.  You can’t go wrong with what is trending right now: flamingos, pineapples, unicorns, and mermaids for popular themes but why not pick a party theme that pairs perfectly with the season.  Nothing says SUMMER like watermelons, cherries, strawberries, and lemons! So here we go.

Oh watermelons- the perfect healthy snack for a party and a wonderful theme for any birthday party in the summer.

Cherries on top- what a fabulous setup on a rolling cart for this cherry themed party.  This cart is the perfect size if you are hosting in a small space too.  I highly recommend using what you have- a small bar cart, a dining room buffet, china cabinet, even a fun painted dresser can be a fun piece of furniture and work as a serving table at your party.

You can’t go wrong with strawberries and ice cream in the summer and an ice cream sprinkles bar is so fun for the kids.  While Strawberry Shortcake is the commercial version, why not go with strawberries in general and at this time of year, it is easy to find an abundance of strawberry party decorations.  The ice cream party theme offers so many color options – bright rainbow or soft pastel colors pair well with this theme.

Finally, a lemonade stand at an outdoor event would be perfect for keeping guests refreshed and yellows, pinks and white are so easy to pull off.  I love lemonade themed events paired with daisies or sunflowers for even more pop at a summer outing.  Lemonade stands are a great addition to a big barbecue, a festival, corporate employee event, and they are also popular at outdoor wedding receptions. Both kids and adults love lemonade in the summer heat.

Trending Party Decorations For 2018

The one trend that is huge in 2018 for parties and weddings is balloons.  Today I am sharing what’s new in all my shops for the Easter season but also so many other great decorations for birthday parties and weddings for this year.

Be sure to scroll below for all the new items available in my shops.

So of course balloons have always been a traditional decoration at birthday parties but this year the key to adding balloons to your next event is in creative set up and balloon styling and also finishing them with balloon tails and streamers.

Instead of balloons as an added decoration- they have become the feature of the party and the entire backdrop, like this set up above.  This balloon design was created with a balloon arch kit.  You can pick these arches up at most local party stores but if you are going for something this big – I highly recommend hiring an event planner.  They have the know how and the skills to set this up and help you pull off a stunning event.

TISSUE TASSELS and tassel garlands are also still in style this year!

Also if you missed last week’s post about trending giant paper flowers used to create stunning backdrops and photo backgrounds, click here to see it – FLOWER BACKDROP IDEAS

Balloons are not only popular at birthday parties and baby showers – they are making a come back at bridal showers and weddings as well.  Most are used for backdrops around the cake serving table or other food tables at the reception but also they are trending for photo backgrounds for the indoor and outdoor weddings as a fun activity for all the wedding guests to participate.  Balloons at weddings should have a more elaborate and elegant design staging.

 

Since balloons are hugely popular this year, I have added many new balloons – marble balloons and giant size balloons are hot right now and I now offer all kinds of balloon tails, balloons streamers and finishes designs for balloons.  Click here for all my balloon options in my shop – BALLOONS

So many new designs added for birthday parties too!  Click on the links below to check them out-

Party Trend For 2017- Unicorn Parties

PARTY TREND FOR 2017 – UNICORN PARTIES

In case you have not noticed, unicorn themed parties are hugely popular right now.  I recently shared some amazing unicorn cakes on my blog and today I wanted to share some party tables and decorations in this theme.  First, the color scheme can be any shades you want- although bright rainbows are most common, this color scheme shown above utilizes more of a pastel rainbow color mix.  The soft tissue flower frame backdrop is stunning- it really makes a statement at this two year old’s birthday party and adds so much height to the dessert table.  I offer some diy paper flowers in my craft shop so you can create a similar tablescape.

Here is another framed tissue flower backdrop at a unicorn party.  I love the more soft subtle color scheme and the simple decor on this buffet really stands out.  Pinks and golds are trendy and fit in for this theme but a rainbow color scheme is perfect too.

This outdoor party features a designer unicorn cake front and center and a mint green and soft pink color pallette with a touch of gold decor.

I think some unicorn pinwheels would have added an extra touch at the party above!

This unicorn birthday party for Emma has it all with candy and a designer unicorn cake and the bright rainbow decorations.

Finally, this last unicorn party looks like it might have been at the Vatican for the pope!  Actually, its just a simple Venetian living room  . . . not really, its anything but simple! While it appears over the top with all the gold, embellished walls, intricate carved table and flanked with elegant floral arrangements – its classic yet still sweet and whimsical.

So whatever your color scheme or style- consider a unicorn party this year!
