We’re heading into the fall and winter wedding seasons where the spring pastels and bright summer colors are being traded in for darker autumn shades and the most traditional color palette of all – black & white! I absolutely adore a black & white themed wedding – it is a classic, sophisticated and elegant theme for any wedding or event and adds a big splash of glamour. It’s also extremely.

Pineapples make a wonderful theme for all kinds of parties – like bridal and baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, and even corporate events.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Untitled-design.png#FridayFavors – #Minions Goody Bags with FREE Printables!

I tell you what – Minions are taking over the pre-school party circuit and there is nothing you can do about it. My advice is to jump on the bandwagon and just face the facts that you’re either going to attend or going to throw (or both!) a Minions themed party in the next 12 months. The good news for those of us who are throwing the parties (yes, I’m.

If you’re a corporate event planner, there’s a hot new trend that you’re going to want to know about. Something that’s fun, delicious and healthy for all of your guests – a Trail Mix Bar!

These Pop Rocks Lollipops are so much fun to make, and a hilariously silly treat to have at a birthday party. Plus, they’re pretty simple to put together and they look really cool on display. Are you sold yet? Additionally, these are perfect for a Harry Potter themed party because they so closely resemble the Honeydukes Acid Pops from the books. Basically, they’re lollipops (like these Blue Razzberry Blow-Pops) coated.

Now that we’re getting close to the end of July and August is quickly approaching, it means that start of school is near and it’s time to squeeze in some last minute summer fun.

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve done a Friday Favors post, so this is long over due! A lot of people have been clamoring for a super-duper simple party favor.

The Minions Movie is finally out and kids and families are flocking to the theaters in droves. My kids just can’t get enough of Kevin, Bob, Stuart and the others, and based on Box Office numbers, they’re not.
