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!

Movie Character Costumes for Halloween!

Movie characters have taken over the Halloween scene since we can all remember. Now for this year, people are looking all over to see who they want to be for Halloween. We have compiled some of the cooler costumes that you can purchase. To start our list, above we have the popular Kick Ass! His new movie Kick Ass 2 is just as over the top as the first and continues the idea that if people can be superheros without powers, then why not?! But let us not forget that Johnny Depp did have a movie release this year in the form of The Lone Ranger! Of course you can play as Tonto for Halloween, but we always suggest being the headliner! Dress up as Armie Hammers character Reid, aka The Lone Ranger!

Us at MPP like to make things very easy as well, so if you like a costume idea that we put up, click on it’s image and you will be taken to one of our partners that carries that exact costume! This way you don’t have to search the web for a costume that you like from our post. Now back to the list!

One character that seems to come back every year is Captain Jack Sparrow! So we really need to mention him here. The Captain of the Black Pearl and wanted by all forms of the law, Johnny Depp created an incredibly likable pirate that is mimicked all the time. But let us not forget that Johnny Depp did have a movie release this year in the form of The Lone Ranger! And you can be Tonto if you wish, but we always want to be the main character. This year, try becoming Armie Hammers portrayal of Reid, aka The Lone Ranger!

And for anyone that wants to become a team of big screen heroes, The Avengers is going to be a great choice. You and all your friends are going to be able to choose their favorite superhero and go out to save that candy from the menacing Red Skull. No matter who you choose to be though, have fun this year. Us here at MPP are just trying to give everyone ideas because it can be hard to pinpoint who you want to be and then another task trying to find the right costume for it. We pull from multiple companies to give you the best priced and highest quality costumes available!

If you dress up early or want to share what you put together for Halloween if you made your costume, we would love to see it. Send all you pictures to chris@mypartyplanner.com and we’ll post the ones we love!

Snow Machine Party!

Winter is coming! And for many parts of the country we don’t get that famous White Christmas that Irving Berlin has been dreaming about. To fix this we call upon the help of technology. Get all you friends together, grab a snow machine and you’re set! Now before we get to ordering something like this, you’re going to want the details of what is a snow machine and what does it produce.

The first one we want to talk about is the fake snow machines. Or as we like to call it in the Biz, flurry foam machines. What these machines do is shoot up a ton of white foam to make it look like snow. Great for a club or house party, these foam snow flakes evaporate when they finally touch something. Easy clean up and a very cool effect. The only problem with this though is that it’s not cold or actual snow. So if you’re wanting a snow ball fight or want to create a snow angel, this is not what you want.

Now before we go into the real snow machines, just remember that pricing, although different depending on who you order from, will always be more for real snow vs fake snow. And not only do you have to think about the size and price of the machine, but also the fuel. For the fake snow you just need to have a special solution that you mix with water and that goes a long way for the amount you need. When producing real snow, you need to find the ice for it. For many companies big blocks of ice is the best because it’s the easiest to insert in the machine and produces the most real snow.

Now you probably started reading this post because you’re wanting to know about real snow machines. If you’re reading it just for the literature, we applaud your drive to consume all forms of writing. Let’s refocus, a real snow machine will not shoot up snow into the air. There are blowers that you can order and companies that send blowers with their snow machines for a price, but most snow machines are simple enough where you put ice in at the top and snow gets dumped at the bottom. The best strategy to get this snow where you want it is to make sure you have some buckets available to disperse all the snow.

Since we know that the time for snow is coming up, we wanted to keep you informed and make it easy on you if you plan to order something like this. So we teamed up with a company that is a foam/snow rental company and if you have any questions or concerns left, they will be happy to help. You can get a hold of them by calling 888 – 660 – 2045! We here at MPP hope you have a great Holiday Season!

Baby Costume Party

We have just entered October and Halloween is coming up fast! We all know that costumes and candy are the biggest thing that people are going to be buying for the next few weeks. We here at MyPartyPlanner love Halloween because of all the unique and fun costumes that can be found or made! Of course we are here to help you find what you need, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with what we find. We have decided that for the brand new parents out there, you are going to want to celebrate your baby’s first Halloween the right way. That means that you’re going to have to make the cutest pirate or dinosaur ever!

So we decided to group up some of our favorites that we could find after scouring the internet. And even though there are only a few costumes here, you can look at the myriad of costumes from just clicking on one of our photos. And depending on how tall your little one is, they have sizes for all. Just make sure you can get your baby to hold still when you measure them. If they are anything like my boys were, the only time they weren’t squirming is when they were eating or sleeping. So good luck!

Like many of us with kids, a lot of your friends also have new born babies or toddlers. You can take advantage of this and get everyone together for a baby Costume Party! Seeing a group of young ones dressed up will put a smile on everybody’s face.

Make sure you get a lot of pictures of all the kids because when they are older you are going to be able to show their future husbands and wives how cute they used to be. I have that ammo locked away in the closet for that day! And to keep the adults entertained during this Baby Costume Party, you can determine who got the best costume. And don’t just give out one prize, pick out the cutest, the funniest, the most original. Everyone’s baby will have something great to point out.

To leave you with some final thoughts, I just want to say that you will have fond memories if you do put together a Baby Costume Party. This isn’t a party you put together for the kids, you put this together for yourself and all the friends and family that go to it. It will make your Halloween memorable rather than regrettable when you eat the bowl full of left over candy the day after. I’m going to put the last few outfits we liked at the bottom of this page, we hope you can find something for your baby boy or girl. Happy Halloween!
