Pineapple in Paradise

I’m so excited to post this styled shoot I did for Oriental Trading. I love Oriental Trading and have been using their products for years now. Their prices and selection honestly can’t be beat. So I wanted to put together a post to show how I used only $75 worth of party supplies to put together this fun party!

These paper fans come in a lot of different colors and each pack comes with more than enough fans in various sizes. All I did was tape them with packing tape to a large foam board. This would make a great backdrop for any tropical party and would be fun to take photos on. The pineapple is a real pineapple that I spray painted gold.

THE BEST Pina Colada Recipe (no, seriously though!)
2 oz. Coconut Cream

2 oz. Pineapple Squash or Concentrate

1 oz Milk

2 oz. dark Rum

1 cup Ice

Blend until smooth

Makes 1 serving


Here’s the story behind my Pina Colada recipe. A few years ago, my hubby and I were lucky enough to stay on a private island in Belize. It was stunning to say the least. When you arrived on the boat, you were greeted by staff members with Pina Coladas. They were amazing and we had more of them on that trip than I should admit. They were so good that after we left, I emailed the staff for their recipe because they were THAT good and much to my surprise, they actually sent it to me!

Party in a Box 

 

This is just a fun little project I did recently for a friend of mine. It’s literally a party in a box! I thought it would be a fun way to send her a gift card for her birthday. I just used a gift card box from Target and filled it with candles (Dollar Tree), birthday cake gum (Target), pink confetti (Hobby Lobby), and a balloon (Dollar Tree)  attached with washi tape (Target). Then just add the gift card and mail! She loved it!! I actually made a mini birthday banner to add to it before I sent it but I forgot to take a picture. 

If you use a bigger box you could put little gifts in it too! Like nail polish and lipgloss would be cute. Even a birthday hat and blower would be fun. 

I’ve had to plan 4 parties this month so I’ve been using every spare second to do that but I’m almost caught up! I’ll post those pics and some new posts soon. We’ve also been house hunting a little which has been so exciting! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Frozen Frenzy!

Frozen Birthday Party Inspiration! These are some of the many Frozen parties we’ve done over the last year or so. Most of these photos are from my Party Boutique but we’ve also done them at houses too!  This has been one of my favorite themes to design. We try to do it a little different every time. I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves but if you have any questions please let me know in the comments below!
