Cookie Favors – The Perfect Birthday Party Favor for Kids of all Ages! (that means adults too!)

In all of my years of entertaining and owning a party store, the one thing I know for sure is that EVERYONE loves to receive an edible favor.  And tops is a beautifully decorated, delicious cookie favor!  And that’s exactly what you’ll find at Diva Entertains!

Let me introduce you to some of my favorite Cookie Favors:

As you can image, kids go CRAZY over cookies.  One look at these fun, decorated sugar cookies will make their eyes pop!

Our Jungle Animal Cookies are tons of fun (they are also very popular for Safari Themed Baby Showers) and you can order an assortment of those shown  or any subset:

Something Blue Bridal Shower Favors & Decor

A “Something Blue” Bridal Shower is usually one of two themes.  The first is  from the saying that the bride should wear “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”.  Of course the decor is “blue” and often so are the party favors.  The other reference is to a Tiffany Themed Bridal Shower and the blue references Tiffany’s iconic robin blue gift box.  Both themes are fun, fabulous and easy to decorate around.

First up is our Something Blue Diamond Ring Manicure Set.  Not only stylish, but super useful too.  Perfect sized for your purse and/or travel.

Or how about a bit of bling for your gals with our Diamond Ring Key Chains or  Diamond Ring Wine Stoppers.

DIY Photo Backgrounds and Backdrops

The “photo booth” idea for parties and events is still all the rage, and today I have some fun DIY background/backdrop ideas for you…along with a few props too!

First, from Pretty Providence, instructions on making  backdrop for less than $5.00!!

From The Hungry Housewives, a FAB circus party… and although the photo I’m sharing is a backdrop for the table/food… it could easily be used or turned into a photo booth backdrop too!  The actual photo backdrop is further down  in the post.

From Hello Hue, a lovely gender reveal party… and a VERY simple and fun photo backdrop idea.  Streamers… props… done!

And I have to confess, this idea is my favorite… using a quilt as a backdrop!  Instant color and texture, but very little effort!  I found this photo on pinteret (couldn’t find the original source), but I love the shabby chic look of it!

Peacock Bridal Shower and Favors AND Customer Photo!

We have mentioned this before, but the Peacock theme is an incredibly popular one right now for weddings and bridal showers.  Today I have inspirations for those of you who are planning a peacock event.  (And if you AREN’T planning one… shouldn’t you be??)

So, to start us off, here is an incredibly simple way to decorate a dessert table by using peacock-colored cupcakes, like these from RoseBakes.com.  You could add simple toppers, and even peacock feathers as toppers (as mentioned in her post).  You can also wrap your cupcakes with our Peacock Cupcake Wrappers.

From Giggles Galore, comes an INCREDIBLE Peacock Party post with lots of inspiration.  The party was actually a Peacock Princess party, but I think the ideas could easily be adapted for a bridal shower.  My favorite?  The peacock cups!  You can check out the TUTORIAL HERE.


I found a Pretty Peacock “real party” post on The Hostess Blog, with tons of incredible inspiration.  I could not get over how gorgeous this next photo was… just had to share!  What a great idea for the drinks and dessert table:

 

Also, we are sharing another customer photo today!  Bonnie sent us a photo of some FAB Bridesmaid gift bags she put together, using our Peacock Favor Bags.

Here is a photo of the Favor Bags from our Diva Entertains shop:

And here is how Bonnie dressed them up… gold tissue paper, a peacock feather.  Did I say FAB??!

 We also have an article that can help you Plan a Peacock Bridal Shower!

We also carry the largest selection of quality Peacock Wedding Favors.

Tuesday Trends – Photo Booths and Photo Props

One of the hottest trends to hit parties lately is the Photo Booth!  You can rent a temporary Photo Booth for your next event… OR you can fashion your own!

You just need a backdrop… some photo props… a picture frame or two.  And a camera (or photographer).  Party photo booths are perfect for not only getting fun photos of the wedding couple or the birthday kiddo…. but ALSO getting great photos of guests too!

From Hip Hip Hooray, a couple of adorable kids’ birthday photo booth ideas:

From the Knot, a lovely wedding photo booth idea with a backdrop and frames. Picture frames as photo booths are super popular right now!

Just look at this fabulous photo booth idea, from a post on Manolo for the Brides:

And, don’t forget about the step-by-step DIY Photo Booth we showed you last week!

I mentioned the photo booth PROPS, right?  You know I have DIY tutorial links for you… WITH free printables!

Check out this post from Oh Happy Day  She shows you how to make great photo booth props:

And from Ruffled, a great DIY photo booth props post: (say THAT three times fast!)

Finally, from Undercover Mother, another fab DIY post… with tutorial on how to make foam photo props! These are way easier than you’d think!

It’s easy… it’s fun… and you know you want a photo with a mustache!
