“Planes” Party Theme

With the new Disney movie, Planes, out in theaters now, I am predicting a huge increase in Planes themed birthday parties!  With that in mind, I have a few fun posts for you to check out!

From Create, Craft, Love… a quick and easy airplane craft tutorial using clothes pins!  These would make perfect party favors!



From Max and Me, a super cute 2nd birthday party.  Love the plane-shaped sandwiches!!

And last, but not least… FREE activity sheets from Disney on the Planes website:


Ballet and Ballerina Inspired Party Ideas

We have talked about ballerina parties before (HERE), but I don’t think we could ever have too much tulle and ribbon around here.  I found some fun new additions to ballet and ballerina inspired parties… and I have some featured items from the Diva Entertains shop too!  Here are some random ballet inspired ideas…

First, from pinterest (because I can’t find the original source), a super cute idea for forks at the ballerina party place settings:



From Kate Landers Events, a seriously AMAZING post about a Nutcracker Suite party.  Did I say amazing?

Get FABULOUS ballet slipper cookies from our Diva Entertains shop:


I also fell in love with these ballet cupcakes from Cute Food.  Although there isn’t a tutorial the comments under the post hints at how they can be decorated.  Personally I would print a picture of it and take it to my supermarket bakery and ask if they could recreate them – I do this all the time!how to make ballet tutu cupcakes

Another fun decor idea, again from pinterest (and I can’t find the original source on this one either, but it’s too cute to not share)… I don’t think this would be too difficult with some poster board and tulle and ribbon!

And how about some white chocolate covered oreos, with a gorgeous ballet design… from the Diva Entertains shop:


Carnival and Circus Party DIY

One of the MOST popular party themes for kids lately is the Carnival or Circus party theme!  Now, Carnivals and Circuses are a little different…BUT, most any idea from one theme can be used for the other.  I’ve found some great DIY ideas and inspiration if you are planning one of these fun, action packed parties.

For a gorgeous vintage carnival party, check out the McClure Family blog post.  She has some FAB photos, and links to tutorials and help with your DIY planning.



For some SERIOUS carnival planning, check out this series of posts from Striking Keys.  This is a HUGE production (large-scale carnival), but there are some super ideas that could be incorporated into any carnival or circus theme event.  Carnival Post ONE…. Carnival Post TWO…. and Carnival Post THREE.  Make sure you read through all the posts – so much *great* information!
