Simple Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving dinner calls for festive table settings! Keep it simple by using pretty paper goods. We played with some of the fun items my mother snagged for her kids' table at our family dinner to show you some fun ideas!

Our fall floral plates mixed with the gold foil pine napkins make such a gorgeous combination. Top them off with festive crackers and place cards, and you have a great Thanksgiving setup! We laid one of our gold foil runners underneath - love the kraft paper for a fall look, but the white would be gorgeous too! We kept it simple with a greenish-grey pumpkin as the centerpiece, but you can definitely get creative with this: pumpkins, flowers, turkey, crafts and more.

Need a fun, affordable hostess gift? These Sugarfina pumpkin pie caramels fit the bill! Also, an adorable party favor if you want something fun on your place settings for guests.

Stop in this week and next Tuesday-Wednesday to pickup supplies for your Thanksgiving! We hope you have a fun one and enjoy the day.

Lots of Love,

Pastel Unicorn Party

When Sarah approached us with the idea for a Unicorn party for her 5 year old daughter, we were so excited!  She came in with a few inspirational photos, and we chose her color scheme based on the Studio Pep Mermaid confetti.  Studio Pep’s color combinations are often perfect starting points for party planning.  The result was a LOC dream come true; beautiful, classic, loud and tons of FUN!  These kiddos partied hard, and we loved seeing the smiles on their faces throughout the event.

Sarah requested a balloon garland, and those are so stunning, the other decor can be simple.  On the backdrop, we added an iridescent Meri Meri customizable garland to recognize the birthday girl.  These garland kits are a great party buy because you can reuse for any event following. We sprinkled in Studio Pep Mermaid balloons around the party space to continue the color scheme throughout the space.

We chose striped plates in colors that complimented the confetti and brought some variety to the table.  When done right, mixing and matching brings a fun and unexpected element to party decor! There were 25 little guests so we set out Meri Meri Unicorn Horns for everyone on the tables. These are always a unicorn party favorite!

Sarah wanted a craft to double as a favor and we offered two; a paper unicorn activity and the Meri Meri Unicorn Balloon Kit.  The kits were a big hit and each child took home a stick-unicorn of their own!  Other party activities included Pin the Horn on the Unicorn and Pumpkin Unicorn Ring Toss.

Cheri’s Bakery made the whimsical cupcakes and Sarah added Meri Meri Unicorn Toppers.  The hostesses’ friend made the sweet Unicorn cookies which perfectly complimented the party colors.

This party was a blast!  Hopefully it provides some inspiration for your own Unicorn party, and if you’re hosting here, we now offer the option to add a balloon garland!  Call or email us for more details!  Thanks for partying with us, Sarah!

Lots of Love,
