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!
