On this day in 1980, a wizard named Harry Potter was born. To honor his birthday, we’re sharing this MAGICAL Harry Potter bridal shower over on our sister site, Offbeat Bride. But I figured y’all might want to take a peek, too, since it’s such good inspiration for any Hogwarts-inspired Potterphile parties you might be planning.
This engagement shoot just reminded me so much of retro birthday parties that I felt like readers over here would dig it so hard. It’s the ultimate roller skating meets rock ‘n’ roll meets nostalgia party inspiration. Plus, I think so many of us grew up having roller rink parties that this is all SO FAMILIAR. The zeitgeist, y’all…
When I’m imagining fabulous parties I’d want to attend, an evening at Hogwarts is top of the list. I’m imagining themed tables, a sorting hat, delish British comfort food, and Harry Potter trivia. Wait, this party happened?! Yep, and it was all to benefit a couple trying to adopt a baby from China.
Let’s be inspired to create our own Harry Potter party from this magical event… (No house elves were harmed in the making!)
We featured this in-depth tutorial on how to create DIY coloring book pages from your photos for weddings, but they’d kick ass at kids’ parties, family gatherings, or just for your own zen coloring needs. Imagine a coloring book or coloring calendar as a holiday gift this year!
Galentine’s Day is coming soon! No, not the holiday for the couples, the wondrous holiday born from Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. The FUN one, okay? The one that celebrates all of your friends, gals and otherwise. Coupled or single or N/A. Celebrating the beautiful, naïve, sophisticated newborn babies. You beautiful tropical fish. You beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk oxen. And of course, you poetic noble land mermaids.
If you’re wanting to celebrate all of your pals at a Galentine’s Day brunch, this is how I would do it…
It’s almost 2018 and you’re ready to curl up with the pets and hit up Netflix, right? Nope. Your friends have decided that they want to party at YOUR PLACE. It’s time for you to host the most dope New Years’s Eve party ever.
You’ve got like a day, maybe two, to get shit in order. You need some last-minute New Year’s party ideas that will slay (or at least keep things chill and fun?). Let’s get to the celebration ideas, you party animals…
This coming Sunday is the king of movie awards shows, The Oscars. Will you be watching or has the string of wonky host gigs done you in? (Don’t worry, Chris Rock’s opening monologue isn’t likely to be boring, at least!) Either way, we’ve got a few festive Oscar party food ideas to pepper your party table.
Need some rad Super Bowl party snacks for your big game party? I’ve got a trio of a side, an app, and a dessert that you can whip up and serve at your Super Bowl party. They’re easy, on-theme, and totally delish. Oh, and don’t forget those DRANKS!
