Party Trends: Golden Birthday

Here at Evite, we love any excuse to make a celebration extra special. And what better reason than a golden birthday? A golden birthday is when your age aligns with your birthdate (for example, you turn 28 on the 28th of October). We loved how Stacey Sargent of Mrs. Sargent celebrated her golden birthday so much, we had to share some pictures of the festivities! The color palette was gold and all that glitters, complete with tassel garlands, DIY flower crowns, and 35" round balloons.

Use our gold foil-inspired Autumn Leaf Evite invitation to invite friends and family to your golden birthday!

Party Trends: Monster Mash Bash

October 03, 2013

Fun and friendly little monsters are suddenly all the rage for kids' parties. And with such a fantastic theme, your party is sure to be a scream! P.S. It's not just a theme for Halloween; you can use it to celebrate your little monster's birthday any time of year.

Monster Mash

A few ideas to get you started:

  • Fill a table full of mini monster munchies
  • Set up a monster ice cream parlor with a sign saying "I SCREAM for Ice Cream!"
  • Stick cake pop "eyes" into a layer cake to create an instant "monster"
  • Add googly eyes and construction paper teeth to plain party hats so every guest can be their own little monster

Send our eye monster Evite invitation for your next monster mash bash!

DIY Honeycomb Ladybugs for a Little Lady's Birthday

October 01, 2013

We love a little ladybug theme for a little girl's birthday party, and this decor DIY is sure to make guests smile! Our DIY honeycomb ladybugs, crafted out of construction paper and red honeycomb balls, are so easy to make. And they add a cute, personal touch to the ladybug party items in our party store.

Honeycomb Ladybugs

Materials:

  • 1½" circle punch
  • Circle cutter
  • Scissors
  • Black construction paper
  • 12" red honeycomb balls
  • 8" red honeycomb balls
  • Hot glue gun
Ladybug Tutorial

Step 1: Use circle punch to make circles out of black construction paper. (You can also do this by hand with scissors, but a punch will save you time.) We used 5 spots for our 8" honeycomb, and 7 spots for our 12" honeycomb.

Step 2: On a safe cutting surface, use circle cutter to make a 4" circle for an 8" honeycomb ball, and a 5½" circle for a 12" honeycomb ball. 

Step 3: Make antennae that are 2" long and ¼" wide for an 8" honeycomb ball, and 2" long and ½" wide for a 12" honeycomb ball.

Step 4: Use hot glue gun to affix circles on antennae and then to ladybug's head. 

Step 5: Glue head to honeycomb and affix spots on honeycomb ball.
