April Fools Day Ideas!

The day of jokes is coming up soon - and we have some fun tricks up our sleeve! Here are a few of our favorites:

Give your husband a scare by bringing home "It's a Girl!" or "It's a Boy!" balloons to announce a fake pregnancy! (order your balloons here and just pick them up!)

Tell your kids you made brownies for them - really hype it up and get them excited, then pull out a pan of brown E's! (We suggest having a back up of REAL brownies, otherwise this might be just too mean!)

We have a bunch of inexpensive prank items to choose from! Try the mouse or fake poop and set them around the house or office to startle a friend (on a pillow, keyboard, car seat, breakfast plate, etc). Get the fake bullet hole stickers and put on your friends windshield to give them a scare, or try dumping some of our itch powder in your husbands shirt before work!

Some additional ideas:
  • Unscrew the shower head, add kool-aid, replace. Whoever takes a shower next will get a colorful, sticky shower!
  • Take out a fake classified ad and put a friend or family members phone number as the contact - they will get random phone calls all day!
  • Skim off the top layer of a solid deodorant stick and replace it with cream cheese.
  • Bake "chocolate chip cookies" using mashed potatoes and raisins 
  • Fill ice cream cones with mashed potatoes and freeze them. Add nuts, cherries, sprinkles, etc. 


Happy pranking!

Paper Gift Sacks - not just for gifts!

Warmer weather is coming! And with it, picnics, parties, and fun! We found some cute out-of-the-ordinary ways to use our striped/gingham/chevron paper gift bags. 

Use as a silverware holder for a party or gathering! We're thinking a little green for St. Patricks Day lunch? Or maybe some sweet pastels for Easter breakfast?! Birthday parties!? (We carry a ton of plastic wear - almost any color - you can order you personalized colors for your special silver wear craft here! And we also carry the ever popular paper straws, you can order here!)

Or they could be cute used as a sandwich bag - maybe for a special occasion for a child's lunch bag or a picnic? 


OR there is the good old fashioned way we Party Gals use them - fill 'em with candy! Anyway way you look at it, these bags are adorable and in stock! You can check them out here or come in the store to see full selection.

Easy DIY Rainbow Chains!

One of our talented Party Girls made this adorable paper rainbow chain backdrop for one of our St. Patrick's Day displays. Isn't is so cute!? It was super easy - so we thought we'd share!


Cut 1 x 9 inch strips of both color and kraft colored paper. (We like the look of backing it with kraft paper, but you don't have to). We cut about 30 for each chain and they are 5 feet long. 



Put the color and kraft together, turn into a circle and staple. Thread the next strips through the first circle you made and staple the same way. Continue on until you have a long chain (however long you want).



Do whatever colors you want. We chose rainbow colors and love the way it turned out! We used it for a display in our store, but you could use it for a ton of different things! 


Hang in front of your window or in your house above the mantel. Your kids would love to help make decor for their own house or even their room! Use it for a party backdrop for pictures or a backdrop for a serving table at your St. Patrick's Day party.
