Cupcake Wrapper Drink Covers

There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to cupcake wrappers! One party trend we can’t get enough of is using cupcake wrappers with drinks. A cupcake wrapper on top of a beverage not only stops bugs and debris from getting in your guests’ drinks, but they also look adorable! Here are three ways to pull off this party trend:

Cupcake Wrapp Drink Covers

Cut  a small x into the center of each cupcake wrapper and set upside down on cups. Insert a straw, and voila, adorable drink covers!

Cupcake Wrapper Mason Jar Covers

If you have younger guests at your party, consider these mason jar sippy cups. The rings from the mason jars can be used to secure the cupcake wrappers to lessen the chance of spills and keep bugs out of cups. Write each guest’s name on the cupcake wrappers so everyone can keep track of their drinks!

Cupcake Wrapper Drink Bottle Hats

These cupcake wrapper bottle skirts may not have a practical purpose, but they sure are adorable! To make these, cut the bottoms out of baking cups and place over the necks of drink bottles. Also adorn with decorative straws for  totally festive party sips!

Wedding Anniversary Party Ideas

Big milestone wedding anniversaries call for big celebrations — and big celebrations call for PartyPail party supplies! We’re excited to offer an elegant line of wedding anniversary party supplies to help you ring in silver 25th, ruby 40th, and gold 50th wedding anniversaries. We have the anniversary party invitations, tableware, decorations, and favors you need to celebrate the day you said “I do.”

Are you throwing a 25th, 40th, or 50th wedding anniversary party? Read on to see our anniversary party supplies and get ideas for how to celebrate.

Silver 25th Anniversary Party Supplies

Our 25th silver anniversary party supplies feature an elegant chrome and silver damask pattern. Pair these party supplies with flower arrangements in silver or mercury glass vases, silver candlesticks with elegant taper candles, and crisp white linens.

Wedding Anniversary Party Idea: For flower arrangements, incorporate flowers that were included in the bride’s bouquet on the wedding day years ago. The couple will love this attention to detail!

Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Party Supplies

Our 40th ruby anniversary party supplies feature a bold red and crimson damask pattern with crisp white accents. For a romantic touch, pair the party supplies with flower arrangements in gold metal or copper vases and gold linens. For a stunning dessert display, serve a tiered red velvet naked cake with white icing between each layer and berries on top.

Wedding Anniversary Party Idea: When it comes to cuisine, use the honored couple as inspiration. Serve a meal similar to that which was served at their wedding reception, the cuisine from their honeymoon destination, or catered food from their favorite date night restaurant. 

Gold 50th Anniversary Party Supplies

Our 50th golden anniversary party supplies feature the same damask pattern, but with a light metallic gold atop a bold matte gold background. 50 years calls for pulling out all the stops, so make it grand with a recommitment ceremony, an elegant catered reception, and a DJ.

Wedding Anniversary Party Idea: When giving the DJ instructions or curating the perfect party playlist, be sure to include songs that were popular the year the couple was married. All the guests, and especially the couple of honor, will love dancing the night away to these tunes.

4 Back-to-School Apple Party Ideas

Believe it or not, summer is winding down and the kids are heading back to school. Give the kids a sendoff that will get them excited about another year of learning with a back-to-school party featuring every teacher’s favorite fruit, apples!

Here are four back-to-school apple party ideas to inspire your party planning:

1. Apple Plates

DIY Apple Paper Plates

To make these paper plates, all you need are our Red 9″ Paper Plates or our Red 7″ Paper Plates and some green felt cut in an apple leaf shape. Glue the felt to the edge of the plates, and voila! You can use these plates for eating, or you could even arrange them on a wall to make a red apple backdrop for a photo booth or food table.

2. Apple Pops

Apple pops are just as delicious as cake pops, but are much healthier and fit our back-to-school party theme perfectly! Get creative with various sticky candy coatings and toppings and arrange them on a cake pop stand. Secure your spot as teacher’s pet by sending the kids back to school with wrapped apple pop gifts!

3. Hanging Honeycomb Apples

Use our Red 8″ Honeycomb Tissue Ball to make these hanging apple decorations! These would look fabulous hanging above the food or favor table. Or, if you’re a teacher, consider hanging them in your classroom for some classic back-to-school decor.

4. Apple Paper Lanterns

 To make these adorable apple lanterns, you need our Red Round 12″ Paper Lantern, green construction paper cut in leaf shapes, and green pompoms. Tape the leaves to the tops of the red lanterns and glue the green pompoms to the sides of the lanterns in a caterpillar shape. Hang these in your classroom or above the party space for an adorable effect!

Ice Cream Social Party Ideas

Nothing says summer like a delicious ice cream social. Perfect for birthday parties, block parties, church events, or casual get-togethers, an ice cream social is a fun way to gather family and friends for a refreshing and heat-beating treat.

Cute and cheery decorations featuring a pastel color palette are perfect for an ice cream social. Use assorted solid color bowls, napkins, and cutlery as serving pieces and cover tables with plastic tablecovers, which are easy to wipe clean from sticky drips or spills.

When creating your ice cream buffet, be sure to include bowls, wafer cones, sugar cones, waffle cones, and chocolate-dipped cones rolled in sprinkles for a yummy party spread. Our Treat and Ice Cream Cups are available in an assortment of colors and are a cute way to serve ice cream to young guests. Be sure to have several flavors of ice cream as well as sprinkles, cherries, nuts (if there are no allergies), candies, whipped cream, and flavored syrups.

 

Ice Cream Scoop SignsSource.

Create signs to look like ice cream scoops using cardstock or construction paper spelling out “Toppings” or “Ice Cream.” Hang over the serving table for a cute accent.

Yarn Ball Ice Cream ScoopsSource.

Colorful yarn rolled into balls and placed in large serving bowls looks like scoops of ice cream and makes a sweet tabletop decoration. Use assorted colors for playful fun in your party space.

Ice Cream Cone Wall or Door Decoration Craft

Ice Cream Social Party Decorations

Use solid color paper plates to create a charming ice cream cone decoration for a wall or door at your event. Hot glue 14 Classic Pink Dessert Plates into the shape of an ice cream cone. Use 4 plates glued together for the bottom row, 3 plates for the center row, and 2 plates for the top row. Layer three more plates on top of the bottom two rows and two plates on top of the top two rows. Add a single Candy Pink Dessert Plate on top to look like a cherry. Attach a pink pipe cleaner to the back of the top plate to look like a stem. Sparkly confetti glued on in a scattered pattern will look like cute sprinkles. Using cardboard or construction paper, add a brown cone with lines made from marker. Cute signs spelling out the famous cheer “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!” make a darling accent to the decoration. Symbols used for the words, like using an eye for “I,” add a clever touch to the signage.

Ice Cream Cone Hanging Decorations DIY

It’s easy to create ice cream cone hanging decorations with party supplies and cardstock. There are several styles of hanging ice cream cones to make depending on which types of party supplies you have on hand. Cones can be created using cardstock or construction paper as a base – they can be made from solid color cardstock or patterned paper depending on how you prefer your decor. The “ice cream” portion can be made from:

Whether you’re planning for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, or Labor Day, Maria from Our Home Away from Home showed us how easy it is to create a patriotic tablescape with our Classic Red, True Blue, and White tableware.

In preparation for her sister’s bridal shower, Ashley from She Makes a Home shared fun ways to dress up plain tableware.

We can’t wait to see the rest of the bridal shower come together later this summer!

The Style Sisters Yellow and Turquoise Bridal Shower #PartyPail

Karin from The Style Sisters used our Mimosa Yellow, Bermuda Blue, and White party supplies for a lovely bridal shower. Karin showed how you can combine solid paper party supplies and your own entertaining items to make a stunning effect.
