Glitz and Glam Gold Party Favor Bags

At Diva Entertains, a Glitz and Glam Party perfectly reflects our style!  So when Kate Aspen introduced these fabulous Gold Stripe Muslin Party Favor Bags (available April 2015) we felt like they were designed for us!

Printable Christmas Cards (or Photo Frames)

We offered these glam cards last year, but I thought it might be nice to offer again, since we have so MANY new readers (thank you all!!)

I have design two FREE printable holiday cards, as a gift just for you.   Click HERE to download the PDF file, which includes instructions and BOTH card designs..  Print your card of choice onto cardstock, affix your favorite holiday photo right to the card with scrapbook-safe glue “dots” (like THESE) or double-stick tape, add your message and name(s) to the inside and… voila, instant card, ready to mail! These are both 5×7 size cards, one with space for a 4×6 size photo on the front, and the other with space for a 3×5 size photo.

 

And for the “extreme” DIY’ers, we also have a slightly MORE detailed DIY version.  You can download the {extra strength} FREE DIY holiday card HERE.  Instructions are included with the file to make one fabulous GLAM photo frame holiday card.

Glamping… aka Glam Camping Parties!

So, this may be a new term to you, but pay attention – it’s a trendy HOT party idea for tweens, teens, and glam girls of all ages.  What do you get when you mix a little GLAM with a little CAMPING?  You get GLAMPING!

You may be wondering how in the world THOSE two things mix… well, let me show you some fab examples!

For some eye candy and inspiration, check out the Glamping party post on Amy Atlas.com.  Lots of great examples for mixing glam with camping – like a styled s’more’s bar and lip gloss favor boxes:

From Crafty Texas Girls, a sweet “glamping” party for a younger gal.  She has tutorials for some of the ideas in THIS post as well.

For an INCREDIBLE list of glamping ideas and photos, check out the Glam Camping photo shoot and inspiration from the Tom Kat Studio.

And finally, a brand new post on Anders Ruff about Emily Maynard (star of TV’s Bachelorette) and her daughter Ricki’s Glamping party.  This is the ultimate in glamping style and fun!  So many great ideas and inspiration, you’ll be looking at this post for awhile, I promise!

Tuesday Trend – Vintage Glam for weddings and parties

“Vintage Glam” might not be for everyone, but you have to admit there is a plenty of room for glam in the vintage category!  The “vintage party” concept is a fun trend, and I’ve got some great finds for you, if this is YOUR type of glam.

There are lots and lots of fabulous cake and cupcake designers out there, but I found one from the UK who really seems to GET the vintage glam idea.  Check out the Cotton and Crumb cupcake gallery HERE. (And be sure to click around the site to see a lot of other amazing dessert and cake designs too!) When you see something (or two or three) that you like – print out the photo and take it to your bakery to replicate!  For a fun and delightful twist – serve your vintage cupcakes in teacups – no crumbs!

 

 

 

It’s a GLAM Baby Shower!

I have to admit, I had SO much fun with this post.  I’m not having any more babies anytime soon (or ever), but I always get a little bit of “baby fever” around the first of each year.  Probably because it’s a time for NEW and BEGINNINGS!  Thankfully, there are always plenty of lovely ladies that ARE having babies in my circles, so I thought I’d settle the “fever” by planning a fun party for one of THEM! And I found some super, super fab GLAM Baby Shower inspirations… and a few other fun extras!

First up, from Brooklyn Limestone, an incredibly glamerous baby shower!  Check out the invites and read what she did.  It’s short and has some great inexpensive baby shower ideas:

And a “Baby Shower Wishing Well”:

You simply MUST click HERE to see the rest of the photos (you’ll have to scroll just a tiny bit, but they are there!)

Next, from Kara’s Party Ideas, a rustic glam shower inspiration:  (again, click the link to see MORE baby shower inspiration images – great ideas including a hot cocoa bar)

From Pizzazzerie, another over-the-top fab shower, this time Coco Chanel inspired:


I know I keep saying it, but be sure to click over and see the rest of the photos and the post.  There are some great ideas that could be used for any theme or color scheme.  Near the end of the post is a great “quick tutorial” on how to make a baby shower wishing tree with manzanita branches.

And… for a totally DIFFERENT take on “glam”, look at this Cirque du Bebe Baby Shower post on The Hostess blog:

The photos from this event are simply stunning… who says you can’t plan a circus themed GLAM baby shower? And Click Here to get more details on how to do it yourself!

Now, you really can’t have a glam baby shower without gifts, and of COURSE I was able to find a few lovely, GLAM, gifts for a new baby-to-be.  (And I know, the boys are left out on this one, but we’ll fix that with a very BOY-themed post soon).

From Handmade With Love 4 U on etsy, a shabby chic rosette flower headband:

From Simply Irresistable, a trio floret headband:

From Delight Crochet, a simple, elegant crochet headband:

And finally, from Buttercup Baby Boutique, a sparkly vintage glam beanie (used as a photo prop only) for new baby:
