We LOVE to celebrate every day of the year, but holidays are especially fun reasons to plan something fun…and Valentine’s Day is certainly a reason we love to party!
Valentine’s Day makes us want to decorate everything in pink, red, hearts, and flowers
…and it’s an excellent reason to justify eating some extra chocolate.

In addition to chocolate, what else do you need for the perfect Valentine’s Day get-together?
This year, parties will be smaller, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have BIG fun!

You can set up another craft station with our Spin Art. We include supplies for 100 works of art! Of course, Anyone working on crafts will surely want to snack on something delicious when they’re done.
How about set up a small area with some “grab-and-go” type snacks and single serve drinks, like juice boxes or bottled drinks!
Add labels like these to the bottled drinks to dress them up for Valentine’s Day!
One of our rectangle or circle tables with white or burlap linens would be perfect for a snack set-up at a Valentine’s Party!

While brainstorming some possible party themes with yellow as the primary color, there were more and more and more ideas that kept coming to mind! Yellow is such a fun, bright, cheerful color and it’s everywhere we look! Check out some of our favorite yellow accents we found on Pinterest!
How DELICIOUS do those chocolate covered Batman cookies look? Mouthwatering, if you ask us! If you’re planning on a Batman birthday for the Justice League fan in your house, we have a moonwalk that would be the perfect backyard entertainment!
The birthday banner really matches any color scheme with the gold letters, but it looks so good with all this yellow decor, doesn’t it? To use it for an event other than a birthday, you could always just remove the extra letters and make it say, “Happy Day” :). Put some of our yellow Dori Flags around it and you’ll have the perfect photo backdrop!
Sunflowers and Sunshine would make such a beautiful wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, first birthday, or graduation party! Sunflowers can be incorporated into centerpieces, bouquets, or as a cake topper! Snacks could include a bowl of sunflower seeds or incorporate sunflower seeds in the recipe (mmmmm…. broccoli salad anyone? or trail mix?)
A honey-themed yellow wedding is a SWEET idea! Those simple hexagon cookie with various shades of light yellow icing perfectly resemble a honeycomb.
We found a recipe for those deliciously sweet Lofthouse-style sugar cookies online, and if you need any taste testers, we’ll be more than happy to sample for you!
Giraffes would match a brown, orange, or yellow party, but this cake just perfectly matched our yellow theme and we had to include it! Those itty bitty cupcakes are adorable (and the smash cake featured on their blog is absolutely precious!)

We love love love a good party theme! We know that certain cartoon characters and tv shows or movies are incredibly popular themes, especially for kids’ birthdays. But what if you’re planning a party (whether for a birthday, wedding shower, baby shower, wedding reception, or a business event), and really want the focus to be on the colors you’re using, rather than the characters?
Well, we have a few ideas, and as always, we’re ready to help! 🙂
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to feature color-inspired party ideas. You can incorporate these ideas into any party theme.  Say you’re planning a Firefighter, Elmo, Mickey, or Superman birthday….or a wedding reception for a bride who loves roses…or a backyard tailgate to kick off the season for your favorite high school or college team and red is one of the school colors….or a Red Carpet party to gather with friends while watching the premiere of your favorite show’s new season…or a Christmas, Valentine’s, or any Patriotic holiday party…
…then RED is your color!
We have a Pinterest Board that’s growing with more and more COLOR inspired party ideas (check it out here!), but today we’re going to take a look at some of our favorites for RED! 😀
Yarn Wrapped Candles by Camilla Fabbri
Aren’t these yarn wrapped candles so sweet? The same concept could be applied to jars at a candy bar or even around pitchers at a drink table.
Watermelon Snacks featured on 36th Avenue
Watermelon “popsciples” …really, watermelon anything sounds delicious!
They also make us think of summer, so if you’re having a summer party, it’s the perfect snack.
If you’re planning a party during a rainy season like we’re having right now in Alabama, you might want watermelon just to feel like summer is coming back at some point ha! (PS the link at 36th Avenue has several fun snacks featuring watermelon!)
Instagram Themed First Birthday Party on Pinterest
What a fun way to use balloons! This party used balloons to showcase pictures from the first year of the birthday boy, but they would be great at an anniversary party or engagement party too!

We love this trellis covered in fragrant red roses! If you’re thinking of having an Alice in Wonderland party (or Alice in ONEderland for a first birthday), wouldn’t this be the perfect touch to the party area?

A little while back, we had an Instagram poll asking your favorite type of indoor party.  The feedback was so fun to read and share! One favorite was a Taco Party!
Naturally, we decided that would be a party idea to blog about. 🙂
While looking for fun, simple decor, we came across these adorable DIY Cactus balloons. How cute are these? Put together a few of these for centerpieces and line them up on a couple of 6′ tables with our favorite vinyl skirted table covers (easy to cleanup!) and you have a PERFECT simple Taco Tuesday set-up!
Cactus balloons!
Design Improvised
The menu for a Taco Party could be pretty obvious, but we thought it would be fun to find some “out of the box” recipes to go beyond a table full of toppings, chips, and taco shells.
Raise your hand if you’ve had a Walking Taco at a party or at home for an easy dinner. These look fantastic and simple!  A friend of ours makes these by cooking one or two options of meats, setting out everyone’s favorite taco toppings, then handing out snack-sized bags of nacho chips (you could even get various flavors for more options!).  Everyone opens their bag of chips and fills it with meat, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, beans, you name it! Mix it up with a fork and you have a portable dinner (With no plates to wash!)
While we’re talking about portable food…Mexican Style Street Corn would be delicious and check out these adorable Individual Seven Layer Dip Cups! We came across them at spendwithpennies.com and think they would be the perfect appetizer for guests celebrating with you.

Hope you got a couple of fun ideas for your next party! Let us know what you need from us to help make your next event one to remember!

Temperatures and humidity are high, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay cool outside!

We’re all ready to get outside after being cooped up all winter (and during those stretches of rainy days in the spring), but when there’s no air conditioning outside, we have to find other ways to cool off!  Whether you’re planning a big outdoor get together or just looking for some ideas to get your family outside this summer, we’ve got some fun ideas to help you keep cool!
One of the simplest ways to stay cool (without jumping in a pool) is a good old fashioned water balloon fight! We found these fun homemade reusable “water bombs” made with sponges and can’t wait to make some ourselves soon!
DIY Sponge Bombs at MomSpotted.com
But if you’re going to have water balloons, we think these are GREAT! They fill up so quickly when you connect them to a garden hose over a bucket filled with water. No more sitting in the sun struggling to fill water balloons one at a time. 🙂
Then, use those handy water balloons to play a game of catch or batting practice…brilliant!
Batting Practice at iCandy Handmade
Another great way to use water balloons is with our Water Wars!
Check out how much fun it is to catapult water balloons at the opposing team!
Of course, we have plenty of other water activities available as well, including water slides, slip n slide, and water obstacle courses!

Check out this cake we found that would be the PERFECT addition to a water birthday party, especially if your cake decorating skills (or the skills of a local cake decorator) could make the make match the water slide you have set up!

Water Slide Cake by Babasuesue

Of course, with the temperature reaching the mid 90s, you’ll want some cool snacks to have on hand.  Popscicles, shaved ice, watermelon, and cool drinks are a must!


What do you always have around when you’re spending time outside on these warm summer days?

Don’t you just love weddings?
We do, of course!
We love planning weddings, going to weddings, talking about weddings…you get the picture.
With another Royal wedding coming up this weekend in England, the media is covered with speculation regarding the bride’s dress and hair,
details of the newlyweds’ carriage ride after the wedding,
photos of the traditionally printed wedding invitations, 
plans for the cake, flowers, and music,
and of course photos of the wedding location: St. George’s Castle.
This has us thinking…if were planning a dream wedding fit for royalty, what would we include? 
Simple, elegant entryways to the wedding venue…
Chandeliers as the centerpieces to an overall beautiful lighting set up…
Decorations that remind us of our loved ones…
Crowns on the tables at the reception, to make the guests feel like royalty as well!
Modern wedding stationary with a touch of traditional gold elements
Beautiful in-season flowers…
and plenty of food to go around!
If you’re engaged and planning YOUR dream wedding, visit Your Alabama Wedding on Facebook and enter our giveaway for $500 credit towards wedding rentals!  The contest ends 5/18/18 and is open to residents planning weddings within our service area.
