Let the kiddos be chefs for the day with a chef-themed party! With their own little chef hats and aprons, the kids will be set to make a masterpiece or two! Here are some delicious ideas for your party:
This is something the hubs and I did when it was STILL too cold to camp. I was really itching for an under-the-stars experience. So, instead of risking frostbite and pneumonia, we improvised with an indoor camp-out (camp-in?). Here is what we did:
The setting. We forwent setting up the awesome tent we got for our wedding, but we did inflate the air mattress and set it up in the living room for an open-air feel. The idea was to get glow-in-the-dark stars to put on the ceiling so we could gaze up at them while we fell asleep, but we could not find them at any dollar store or grocery store ANYWHERE! But we’ll definitely get them for next time.
Time for a family game night? Invite another family over for a party and play your own version of the game show, “Family Feud!” Here’s how to pull off an awesome party:
Set up chairs so that each family sits on opposite sides of the room. At the front of the room, have a podium or other designated spot for the person being questioned to stand. Also have the host stand at the front of the room. Don’t be afraid to go all-out and decorate like the game show! Put up a big poster-size Family Feud logo, a sign that says, “Survey Says…” a life-size cardboard cut-out of Steve Harvey, etc.
So, my husband’s birthday is coming up and I really want to throw him an awesome party. But to throw an awesome party, you need an awesome theme, right? Well, adult themes can be kinda boring. So I asked him to name something he loved from his childhood. His answer: POWER RANGERS! So, without further ado, here is a collection of great ideas for a throwback Power Rangers party:
- Color scheme: the colors of the rangers—blue, red, black, pink, and yellow
- Invite your guests to be part of the décor by wearing the color of their favorite Power Ranger. They can even come in full costume if they want to! (My husband’s fave is the red ranger—I’m going to try to convince him to get all decked out). You can buy costume t-shirts here: www.tvstoreonline.com.
- Hang paper lanterns in all the ranger’s colors.

– Wrap in newspaper and add newspaper flowers on top. How to make the flowers here: http://www.hgtv.com/entertaining/how-to-make-rolled-paper-roses/index.html.
– Add cute fabric or paper flowers to a brown paper lunch sack. Simple and sweet.
– Tie or tape on a fresh flower to the package.
– Wrap with cute fabric and tie with nice ribbon—the receiver can reuse the wrapping so they won’t go to waste! You can also create your own cute fabric by using stamps on plain fabric.
