Beach Bash in a Blizzard

Anyone else suffering from the winter blues? We know how you feel! January is usually a pretty dreary month; it's cold, snowy, and warm, summer weather seems just way too far away! Cure your winter woe with a beach bash (an indoor one, of course). Invite your favorite people, turn the thermostat up, and pretend it's summer!

Make your guests feel like they're in paradise the second they get in the door with a lei backdrop! Use lei strands, which can be found at most party stores and website, to easily create a stunning backdrop. Put out some fun summer props like sunglasses, beach balls, and more, as the lei strands make the perfect photo booth backdrop! Photo credit: Bambini Soiree.

This aloha party punch will have your party guests feeling "beachy keen" in no time! With only four ingredients, this non-alcoholic, tropical punch is sure to be a hit with guests of all ages. And, of course, no tropical drink is complete without a crazy straw, fruit garnish, and mini drink umbrella! Find the recipe from The Frugal Girls!

Painted pineapples make the cutest centerpieces! Use bright-colored paints that coordinate with your party colors for fun and easy party decor. Bonus, the pineapples double as awesome photo booth props AND can still be eaten afterward! Find the step-by-step instructions at Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Shoes!

Pin the tail on the donkey doesn't really work for a beach party, but pin the coconut on the palm tree sure does! While these types of games may seem like they're "just for kids," we can assure you that the results are equally hilarious with party guests of all ages! Check out the directions at Domestic Mess!

Stay tuned for more party ideas!

Party Tips and Tricks

It's not until you start planning a party that you realize just how taxing and time consuming it can be! From the invitations and decor, to the activities and food, there are a lot of details that need to be accounted for We know you're busy enough as it is, so we thought we'd share a few of our favorite party hacks to make your life a little easier!

One of the worst parts of party preparation is blowing up a ton of balloons! It doesn't take long to start running out of breath! Did you know that you can easily blow up dozens of balloons in no time using vinegar and baking soda? Talk about a breath of fresh air! Check out Nature Hacks for the directions!

Is your child celebrating a birthday at school? Don't forget the treats! Bringing in cupcakes for your child's class is a fun way to celebrate, but transporting 20+ cupcakes is way easier said that done. Use clear plastic cups and cellophane for easy transportation and no mess! Find the instructions at Michelle Paige Blogs

Planning to serve ice cream at the party? Make life easier (and less messy) by scooping it ahead of time! Scoop the ice cream into a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners and freeze overnight. When it comes time to serve the cake, just remove the ice cream scoops from the liners! Find the directions and more ice cream hacks at Real Simple!

Sundae bars are fun, but putting all the toppings out can be messy! Use a muffin tin to put out tons of toppings all in one place! This hack works great for sundae toppings, but would also be great for burger or hotdog toppings, like ketchup, onions, and more! Photo credit to Two Peas & Their Pod!

These ooey, gooey pepperoni roll-ups are full of pepperoni and melty cheese, perfect for dipping! You can make them with pre-packaged crescent rolls, saving you time and effort. If your guests aren't big pepperoni fans you can substitute turkey or ham! Find the recipe at Taste of Home.

Holiday Hoopla

The best part about the holiday season is celebrating with those close to you! Whether you're helping out at your child's school party or you're getting friends and family together for some festive fun, these holiday party ideas are great!

These "Christmas light" balloons are a fun, easy way to add some festive flavor to your home! Use light up balloons or glow sticks for an awesome glow in the dark effect! You can also add glitter or confetti to make your "lights" shine! Find step-by-step directions at Living Locurto

While it may look like a kid's game, this snowman mummy game is hysterical and perfect for any party! Split into teams and use toilet paper, scarves, and hats to turn one of the team members into a snowman. Whoever creates the best snowman in five minutes wins!

Gingerbread houses look so fun, but they're usually a messy pain to make. It's nearly impossible to keep the sides together and, with one wrong move, the whole thing falls apart.

You get all the decorating fun without the structural mess! Check out Hostess with the Mostess for instructions!
