Surfs Up! Summer Family Beach Bash

When you can’t go to the beach, bring the beach to you! That’s exactly what Angela DiVincenti Babin of Angela Marie Events did when she shipped in truckloads of sand and set up this  ‘Surf’s Up!’ Summer Family Beach Bash in her front yard! Other seaside additions included the Shaka Sweet Shack, beach chairs with coolers nearby and a huge crab feed! Proof that being landlocked is not so bad! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Hanging paper lanterns & string lights + vintage surfer & station wagon printables
– Shark cake balls, blue coral popcorn, Goldfish shark bait + bikini rice krispies
– DIY wooden arrow sign & painted wave photo booth backdrop + a cake with a giant surf wave
– A Snow Cone machine & water slide + towels, sunglasses & woven bracelet party favors

Printable Flamingo Party Silhouettes {+ Summer Blog Hop}

I’m a fan of flamingos all year round, but there’s no denying that they fit in especially well during the warm summer months… which is probably one of the reasons I’ve seen flamingo parties (and flamingo everything else!) popping up so much lately.

So for this month’s (Summer Themed) Free Printable Blog Hop, I decided to offer up these cute & girlie Flamingo Party Silhouettes, as seen on the charger plates in our recent Flamingo Fiesta Party theme. I’m thinking they would also be really cute strung into a banner, used on chair backs, or attached to gift bags. You can now download these silhouettes over on the flamingo party recap post, along with the 8×10 Drink Sign and Blank Tent Cards. (You’ll find download links for all 3 items at the bottom of the post.)

P.S. Make sure to scroll down for lots more (free) summer inspired printables from the other Blog Hop participants below… the designs are all so cute! Here are a few hints on what you’ll find: rootbeer floats, lemonade, summer bucket lists, watercolor, retro sunshine, pool party… sounds a lot like summer fun to me! Enjoy :)

Flamingo Fiesta Girls Night In {Part 2: Crafting & Desserts}

In continuation of today’s Flamingo Fiesta Part 1 post, here we go with Part 2: Crafting and Desserts!

Just like the Sauza® Sparkling Margarita bar and dinner table from Part 1, the dessert station features playful flamingo-inspired colors and elements + an ample dose of sparkle. The treats were simple and easy: homemade watermelon cupcakes + grocery store goodies that were given a little creative presentation. (For example: a freezer-section key lime pie was cut into mini squares for a modern “small bites” look, then garnished with quarters of lime!)

COCKTAILS + CRAFTING

I also set up a craft table with “ingredients” for guests to make their own set of ceramic tile drink coasters, which tie in well to the cocktail theme of the night. Added bonus: the plain white tiles used for the coasters were only .13 each! The original plan was to focus on decoupaging them with patterned paper, but I got sidetracked by my washi tape bin and ended up loving that idea even more! {Added bonus – it’s SUPER easy. More on the craft project below.}

P.S. If you’re looking for additional crafting ideas, check out Sauza’s cheeky “Make Anything with a Cowboy” craft video series featuring fun projects like Sparkly Acorns, Margarita Charms, and even Jorts. Who knew cowboys were so crafty?! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Red velvet & marbled cake shooters served in disposable “cheers” themed shot glasses
– Bright pink, accessorized flamingo + simple feather garland & pink honeycomb wall backdrop
– Cupcake toppers made from flamingo themed stir sticks + paper party circles
– Pink toothbrush-holders-turned-craft-supply-holders, embellished with a metallic gold Y-A-Y!
– Mini notebook party favors (only $1 for 3!) dressed up with favor tags & baker’s twine

You can never go wrong with crafting, cocktails, and a little sparkle …at least in my book! So when I was recently asked to dream up some creative inspiration for a fun Girls Night In featuring Sauza® Sparkling, last month, this tried-and-true combo is exactly where I started. ;) The weather is warm and summer […]
