Pool Parties

Every body loves pool parties, and they are a great way to cool off from the summer heat or to just make a splash at a special event.  When throwing a pool party there are a few things you want to keep in mind like invitations, music, food, toys, games, party favors, and safety.

Start with the perfect invitations, you can use aqua blue paper to get your guests thinking of water.  Playing tropical or beach music will set the mood for relaxation. Keep the food simple, having the BBQ fired up for some burgers and hotdogs is always a winner for party guests.  Toys and games are great for any age party-er, diving sticks, pool floats or noodles, water guns, and any sporting ball are great ideas for your next party.  Just because its not anyone’s birthday doesn’t mean you can’t give out party favors.  Even the smallest party favors are appreciated and can be inexpensive to give out to friends and family.  Safety is the most important thing to plan out when throwing a pool party.  First make sure your pool chemicals are balanced and make sure sun screen is readily available for anyone who might of forgotten their own.  If there are any non-swimmers, make sure they have a swimming buddy (parent or bigger and a strong swimmer).  If you are mixing adults with children and plan on having adult beverages, hire a lifeguard for the younger swimmers.

Having the latest and greatest party accessories will keep your friends talking about it all summer long.  That is why we recommend having a Foam Machine at your next pool party!  A foam machine will bring new life into any pool party and is only one of many new ideas/inventions that are coming out for pool parties.  The foam machine is easy to use and a safe addition to the party.

We here at MPP would love to hear your pool party ideas and successes, just let us know.

Fourth of July! Fireworks

What’s the one tradition that almost every American associates with the 4th of July? Fireworks! I know personally, I have vivid memories as a child watching streaks of light short across the sky, before they burst into magnificent colors. I can still feel the internal BOOM of the concussion created by the explosive force of these festive treats. I can even smell the pungent odor of the sulfur as it floats to the ground.

The tradition of Fireworks in America dates all the way back to the year following the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. And ever since, Americans have celebrated their Independence by the brilliant colors created by fireworks. In 1783, Philadelphia began selling fireworks to its citizens, allowing them to create their own celebrations. Around the early 1800’s, cities sought the best pyro technicians they could amass in order to deliver a more stunning experience. During the Centennial celebration in 1877, some of the first well-organized platforms were designed in order to deliver synchronized shows to stun the masses in attendance. It wasn’t until the 20th century when cities began to really regulate the sale and use of fireworks.

Today, only 21 states allow for the full sale of fireworks, making them a more limited but well sought after commodity. While it may not be legally allowed to purchase fireworks for your personal use, many fireworks companies work with cities and counties to legally to create and host fireworks displays! Fireworks are not only a great idea for any Fourth of July celebration; they are also a wildly popular attraction for graduation parties, birthday parties, and especially weddings!

Here at MyPartyPlanner.com, we have many vendors that can offer you fantastic fireworks displays for any one of your events!

Plant a Tree Party!

This past week has been a very busy one for most of us. Easter was on Sunday, we were all either traveling to go see family or having family come over, and then the next day it was time to start the work week. One thing that went nearly unnoticed though was Earth Day. And to celebrate what mother Earth has given us MPP wanted to come up with a party idea that would help out. This weeks featured party is a Plant a Tree Party!

Nearly all over the country, the weather is beautiful, everyone is joyful, and the need to help out our home is at it’s highest. This is the best time to get the family together, get some friends to help out as well, and plant a tree.

Although we are making it sound like a very easy activity to go out and do, there is a lot of planning before you can have a party like this. If you are thinking of planting a tree at your local park or at a state park, there are city and state ordinances that prevent you from changing the landscape. You will have to contact your local representatives to find the right permission for the plant. It’s a bit easier if you want to do it at home though. First, check to see if there are any Home Owner Association rules preventing certain trees or sizes of trees. Then you should look up your city ordinances about the same subjects. If you are not breaking any rules, you are all set for the party.

This kind of party is also the perfect time to get the kids involved. Pull them away from their video games and computer, put a tiny shovel in their hands, and let them take in the sun as they do some good. We here at MPP would love to know if we were the reason a couple trees were planted, so if you take our idea and plant a tree, Let us know!!!

Puppy Party!

There is a growing trend in America and it couldn’t have been a cuter one: Puppy Party! Of course all dogs are invited, but the main attraction will be who’s bringing their cute little pups. Now that summer is here, there is ample time to get all these cute little ones together so they can meet all of your family and friends. You’re going to find out that your little bundle of joy is going to have the time of his or her life rolling around with other puppies.

This will also be a great time to tire them out so that they can pass out the moment they get back home!

Now with puppies especially, there is no way you’re going to be able to make them play games that little kids play. So musical chairs, red rover, and pin the tail on the donkey are all out for party games. Since you are on this article though, you might be wanting some ideas on what can be done with a back yard full of puppies. Well, here are some things that us here at MPP have though about:

- Races : Puppies are going to want to chase anything that they are curious about or anything that is considered a tasty treat. This is a great time to entice a whole group of puppies and start making friendly wagers to see what puppy will get the treat first. If you have enough gates available, a track can be built to make sure the race can go on a couple of laps. The fastest puppy might not win this one, it could be the pup with the most focus.

– Puppy Spring Training : Since football season is starting, you can have these little pups wrestle and tackle each other for possession of a couple foam footballs. All your guests will have a blast seeing the pups jumping on top of each other and the best part is, a couple of foam footballs is a very inexpensive way of keeping pups occupied.

– Obstacle Course : Since it is pretty difficult to keep the attention of puppies, one of the easiest ways to keep them busy is to just put a whole bunch of them together in a space that can be fun for them. As puppies too, they can handle some hard hits, so when it comes to protecting them, you just want to make sure that there are no pointy or sharp edges in their play space. This also brings us to something important that should be on the top of your list as a dog owner…

Keep the Puppies Safe

Since you are bringing your personal and beloved pets to a party where there will be many other dogs, you want to make sure you keep your pup safe. Here are a few tips that we suggest:

– Make sure you and all the other dog owners bring a leash to the party. If you are the host of the party you might want to keep spare leashes.
– Before the party, make sure your pup is up to date on all his or her vaccinations. There are some sicknesses that can catch onto a pup that is tough to get through.
– Before you allow the pup to roam, make a few observations: Do you see any ticks or lice on any of the dogs or in the yard? Has your pup been introduced to all the dogs there? And where is the dog area and is there enough water for the pups there.

Countdown to Christmas

It’s the first week of December! Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday is now behind us and we have Christmas to look forward to! Now since we are a party site, you know we’re going to tell you to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to set up a great big party where you invite all your family members. And that would be great to do, but we also know that you have gift shopping to do and also have to battle the hordes of shoppers and traffic everyday. The pressure and stress can build up pretty quickly.

Posted by Robftw on reddit

So this year, we’re suggesting a nice quiet Christmas with those you are closest with. Friends and family are great to have around and keeping the focus on them this year is going to make sure you can plan out something fun and simple. If you do, however, want to invite 100 of your closest friends, visit the MPP Homepage, and look for vendors that will get your party started. Most of them even have Holiday Specials that you can take advantage of. And when you search for DJ’s or Party Planners, you’ll see how many are right next door to you!

Also, around this time of year, many people talk about a white Christmas but many of us don’t live in a place where it snows. So to help you with finding a company that brings the snow to you, visit SnowMachine.co. They rent out machines that can create snow from blocks of ice or you can have snowflakes that dissolve the second they touch something. It’s a great detail that can help any party of any size.

For those that want to keep the party small though, make sure you look in our Supplies Section. Here you might find some good items for any party. And when you put together a nice, small party for everyone, the details are more important than in larger parties. So make sure you find items that can become talking points for your guests. If you’re reading this close to when I posted it, you have plenty of time to get ready for your get together no matter what direction you go.

Also, when you do put up your party, we here at MyPartyPlanner love to receive pictures of everyone having fun. So don’t forget to send in your best pics and you might even see it put up on our site!
