Talk about thinking outside of the box. A cardboard box birthday party for twin boys. This has GOT to be the most creative theme I have seen for a birthday party. Can you imagine the toddler brain overload? Kidlets would go bonkers for a birthday like this! I die!Of course something this incredible comes from the people at Hello Lucky. They’re the kind of creative peeps that make feel me sick inside because I know there is not a way on God’s green earth I will ever be as cool. I say this as a compliment to them. (Are you feeling sick too?) Looking at the details from this shindig makes me feel like I am getting slapped in the face with waterballoons of ideas. Ouch! And awesome!b.y.o.b! Bring your own box! Are you kidding me??? Too cool.And the hats! I am obsessing over that funny little balloon man that keeps popping up throughout the party. Funky and fabulous.I’m totally feeling inspired and depressed all at the same time! Even the boxes are insanely rad. If you think you can stomach more awesomeness, check out the rest of the party here. One day I hope to reincarnated with a brain like the Hello Lucky-ers. Fantastic.
I “met” my friend Ashley through this wild blogosphere and I can just tell that she is such a funster! To prove it, let’s talk about the adorable farewell party she threw for a friend of hers. I cannot get over the clever ideas she came up with. She invited 14 ladies over for a farewell potluck brunch for her friend that was moving to Virginia. Clever Ashley went with the “Virginia is for Lovers” theme since she “loves the states slogan and of course love red and white.”She had everyone bring a recipe for the guest of honor and they filled out Cleveland postcards (which is where they live! Duh!) to wish her and her family well in their next adventure. Aren’t those all such great ideas? But wait! My FAVORITE idea for a farewell party is what she did next. About a week or so before the party she called the Richmond Times, the VA travelers center and a few relocation offices and was mailed tons of great maps, information, cds, newspapers and moving information. With these items, she decorated her house – and beautifully so! I ADORE how she turned the Virginia newspapers into those fun pinwheels and as a backdrop for the photobooth. I just think everything about these ideas are just so fun and so clever. I know I wouldn’t have come up with calling the new town’s relocation offices but what an absolutely brilliant idea! I would say I want to host a farewell party too, but I don’t want any of my friends to move. But man… if I could throw a party like this, it might just take the sting out of it, right? Great job Ashley and thanks for letting me share it with these party peeps!
Well send me to the boot camp on how to make a party this cool! What an awesome and unique theme for a birthday boy! Genevieve of Celebrate Today… The Superchick Way sure was a superchick when she planned this beautifully detailed party for her 9-year-old son. Those bullets? Totally real (but old!) Holy amazingness! What a legit party!
Hot chocolate cupcakes? How do you even think of something that cute?
She even made camouflage cake pops. Can you see them? I don’t even want to know how long something like this takes! But totally worth every second! WOWZA!
Isn’t everything just amazing? Well, that’s not all… This was only “Part 1!” Part 2 will delight you even more! Make sure to check out her blog and see what insanely creative things she came up with! I know so many young men a party like this would be just fabulous for!
Don’t even start reading this unless you want your head to spin around in amazement. And definitely do NOT check out Frog Prince Paperie’s blog for more on this party unless you really want your mind to be blown. The bed as a table? The silhouettes of the three bears? The porridge? I honestly do not even have words for how damn adorable this party is.
These photos aren’t even the half of it… everything was just beyooooooooooond insanely well done. Really. You just might go into creative over-load just looking at the snaps on their blog. There are 5 parts to this party on Frog Prince’s blog so make sure you click through to see all of them. You literally won’t be able to stand how darling everything is! Get ready to get inspired!
Oh shoot! Someone’s been sitting in my chair! Gotta jet!
Well Happy St. Patrick’s Day, my dears. While the rest of the world is mentally in Ireland, let’s instead travel south of the equator today.Now how do I get invited to a party like this? The gals at Society Picnic put on such a divine Argentinian party and I really wish I could have been sitting at the gorgeous table, sipping on one of those wine glasses, and watching someone do a tango.Don’t these pictures make you want relax your shoulders and say “aaaaaaaaaaah?” Check out the real Argentinian stamps they used as wine charms. How genius is that?The lights, the flowers, the candles, everything about this is just lovely, lovely, lovely.I’m particularly fond of the beautiful wine bottle bag and how they wrapped those napkins. So need to copy that!This was the invitation. Simple and darling. Love this calm and glamourous theme! I’m off to book some tickets to Buenos Aires now. Ta ta!
