Are you looking to throw the birthday girl a tea party to celebrate her big day? Read on for party ideas that are perfect for the Tea Party birthday party theme!

Tea Party Supplies #PartyPail

Decor: Our Tea Party supplies have a decidedly shabby chic, vintage-inspired, and girly feel. Begin by decorating tabletops with the Tea Party Plastic Tablecover, which features a dainty floral print design. At each place setting, use the Tea Party plates and napkins and pastel blue cutlery. To give the tea party a vintage, shabby chic feel, use a different tea cup and saucer at each place setting for each guest to sip from. If you don’t have tea cups and saucers on-hand, check out Goodwill or the Salvation Army for cups and saucers that won’t cost you much! In the center of the table, place tea pot filled with flowers. Babies breath, garden roses, and dainty wildflowers are all perfect for a vintage tea party!

Food: Classic tea party foods are a must! Delight your young guests with decaffeinated tea, which they can sweeten up with sugar cubes.For guests who don’t like tea, hot chocolate is perfect substitute. You could also consider serving cold drinks like iced sweet tea and lemonade. To eat, serve dainty tea sandwiches, scones, and petit fours.

Activities: When attending a tea party, proper attire is a must! Before sitting down for tea, have a dress-up session where the girls can doll up with hats, gloves, and costume jewelry. For a crafty activity, have each girl make her own beaded necklace by supplying a variety of colorful beads, cord, and clasps. An activity that will get the girls moving is sugar-cube-on-spoon relay races.

You’re now all geared up to throw a lovely tea birthday party … pinkies up!

Woodland Creatures Party Ideas:

Decor: It’s easy and fun to add adorable woodsy elements to your Woodland Animals party! For the table decor, use a roll of sheet moss down the center of the table as a runner. In the middle of the table, set a wood slab, and on that set a wildflower arrangement in a mason jar. Add a twine bow  to the jar to top it off.

Food: Think rustic and natural when planning the party food! Mix up a fresh berry salad featuring strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Have a variety of local honeys available for party guests to pair with bread, crackers, charcuterie, and cheese. Salted caramel popcorn, s’more pops, caramel apples,  and donuts are a few other food ideas that fit the theme.

Activities: Keep the activities simple when planning a first or second birthday party. One fun idea for little ones is to create Woodland Discovery Boxes. Make a box for each child filled with age-appropriate forest items, such as pine cones, acorns, leaves, and wood. Lead the activity by pulling each item out one at a time and encourage them to use their senses to investigate each item.

Happy Happi Woodland party planning!

Food: Here are some Zou zebra party food ideas to keep your guests happy:

  • Zou Zebra Cakes — Buy Zebra Cake snacks and place on sticks. Arrange in a bouquet.
  • Zou Zebra Strawberries — Dip strawberries in white chocolate and pipe on dark chocolate stripes.
  • Zou Birthday Cake — Make the birthday cake a layered chocolate “naked cake” with no icing on the sides, but vanilla icing in between each layer of chocolate cake.

  • Zou Pretzel Sticks — Dip pretzel sticks in white chocolate and drizzle with dark chocolate stripes.

The Old Fogey Moonshine birthday party theme is perfect for hosting a whiskey tasting party! Here are some tips for pulling the party off:

  • Choose at least three different whiskeys for the party. Talk to an expert at the liquor store, who should be able to help you choose a variety of whiskeys with different tasting notes.
  • Have tulip whiskey glasses for your guests to use for tasting.
  • Give your guests basic notes about each whiskey, like where it’s made and what to expect from the taste.
  • Have room-temperature water on-hand for cutting younger whiskeys.
  • Coffee and chocolate are great for accompanying a whiskey tasting session.
  • After the tasting is over, provide mixer ingredients for those who would like to make a cocktail using their favorite whiskey.
  • To eat, serve a variety of finger foods, like bourbon meatballs, cheese, chips, pretzels, and bbq sliders.

After the party, use small pint or nip bottles of whiskey as favors. You could also find some “moonshine” to give your guests, such as Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine.

Labor Day Party Ideas

Are you ready for the big Labor Day weekend?! It’s summer’s last hurrah, fall’s unofficial launch, and a perfect opportunity to invite family, friends, and neighbors over for one last summery fling. Here’s some Labor Day entertaining inspiration to kickstart the long holiday weekend:

Red Gingham Picnic Party Supplies #PartyPail

Party Supplies: Our Red Gingham Party Supplies are perfect for Labor Day! Red gingham has a patriotic feel, especially when paired with our True Blue Party Supplies. The gingham print also goes hand-in-hand with picnics and summer, so it’s perfect for the occasion. Check out our Value Pack quantities, which are ideal for feeding large Labor Day crowds. Our Red Gingham Pie Box, Red Gingham Cookie Candy Box, and Red Gingham Cupcake Box are all designed to help you serve your guests sweets on the holiday!

Flower Arrangement in Mason Jar

Decor: There’s no need to go overboard on your Labor Day decor. Some flowers from your garden or grocery store arranged in mason jars make simple and inexpensive centerpieces. If you want to take the decorations further, consider Classic Red and True Blue streamers, paper lanterns, tissue pom poms, and tissue fans.

Labor Day Hot Dog

Food: Labor Day is a perfect opportunity to heat up the grill one more time before it cools off and you rely on your stove top and oven. We love the idea of setting up a hot dog bar where guests can add the toppings of their choice to their dogs. You could consider writing classic topping recipes on chalkboards to inspire guests. For example, a classic Chicago-Style Hot Dog, as pictured above, takes a beef hot dog, a poppy seed bun, yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, chopped onion, tomato wedges, a dill pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt. Also have classic summery sides like potato salad and mac and cheese. For dessert, use up the last of summer’s peaches and bake a peach pie.

Corn Hole

Activities: The weather’s about to cool off, so take advantage of this last summer day by keeping the party outside. Set up a variety of lawn games like corn hole, horseshoes, croquet, and bocce ball. If you have a pool, invite guests to bring their swimsuits and take one last swim. If you don’t have a pool, you can always set up water games for the kids. As the sun sets, light a bonfire and have marshmallows  to roast and ingredients for s’mores. Also use up any fireworks and sparklers left from the Fourth of July!

Happy Labor Day weekend from PartyPail!

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!

Want to bring try this party trend out for yourself?  Shop our nine colors of baking cups and mix and match with your party colors and theme!
