Thankfully, preparing for my summer celebrations is super easy and affordable with Discount School Supply's great selection of arts & crafts materials that can be used for décor, party favors and activities. I thought I’d share a few ideas with you in case you too find yourself in party central this season:
So Sweet of You to Come: The walkway into a candy-themed birthday party is extra sweet with balloons made to look like giant lollipops! Simply cover inflated balloons in Colorations® Cellophane Rolls tie at the base of the balloon with a matching ribbon, and stiffen the string with white straws or thin cardboard tubes to “stick” the lollypops into the ground. Bundle candy favors in cellophane as well, tie with a ribbon to close, letting each guest know that it was “sweet” of them to come!
Choo-Choo, Congrats to You: A train-themed baby shower is made extra fun with Decorate Your Own Wooden Trains. Use as a centerpiece, or as a creative way to hold cupcakes surrounding a cake stand. Have guests decorate their own one-of-a-kind train car, too-- either as a favor or to give to the new mom for the baby’s room or toy chest.
Ready, Set, Get Wet: Beach and pool parties are extra fun with a splash of creative expression! Letting guests decorate their own ball for is a great way to get everyone involved, even if, like me, they’re more inclined to keep theirs on dry land. Land lubbers might also like the Decorate-Your-Own Flying Discs too.
Pretty Pink Princesses: If there’s a little girl in your life, there’s probably a princess party or in your future. I’ve thrown two already and these Decorate-Your-Own Crowns and treasure boxes were huge hits at both. Princesses also made their own necklaces with beads and Rexlace for placing in the treasure boxes.
