With the new Miss America being crowned last night, we congratulate Miss New York for coming out on top over 49 other beautiful women. Nina Davuluri, you deserve the win and are a great role model for all women out there. After such a great show though, for most families with little girls, they are going to want to put together a show just like it! So we’re going to say that it can be a very fun and memorable party for your little princesses.
There really is only 3 things that you’re going to need for this party: Sashes, Tiaras, and a pretty dress for your little girl. The sashes are going to be the most fun to put together. The birthday girl definitely has to be name Miss America, but you’re going to have to have each girl make their own sash. When all the girls get to the party, have a wide, white ribbon waiting for them. A bunch of black letter cutouts and little knick knacks to decorate. Each girl is going to have a blast putting together their beautiful sashes for the beauty and talent show that is about to happen!
For the Tiara, we have many to choose from here on MyPartyPlanner. Look through our supplies or just Click Here to see one of our favorite Tiaras! Now once all the girls are dressed up and looking like cute little Miss America’s, you get your camera ready and start the show. A fancy walk down a runway and a talent show where each kid shows off one of their wacky talents is the way to go. Remember, all this is just to have a fun time and celebrate the birthday girl. Once the show is over, you sing happy birthday while crowning the new Little Miss America. This is truly fun for the girls and all the parents as well.
This idea can also be mixed with a Princess Party since many little girls love Disney Princesses. And if they want to put on their sash a name of a princess rather than a state, let them do so. Like we said before though, make sure you have a camera around because this is a party that you will love to talk about when your little girl gets older. She’s going to see just how adorable she was, even if she’s blushing because of the embarrassment of being a tiny Miss America. Don’t forget that MPP is always here to help with your party, so keep following us for more ideas!
For fans of this classy show you know that it’s based in the 1960′s and it follows an advertising firm in New York. Now we’re not going to focus on the fantastic story of Mad Men for now, because when putting together a party, you want to make sure you include every partygoer whether they know the show or not. So to prepare, we’re going to look at where you’re going to have the party. Moody but classy is your goal. And even though that might seem vague, it just means focus on lighting and furniture placement.
When it comes to the lighting, darker equals classier. When you watch Don Draper go have a drink at his favorite local bar, you notice that it is covered in moody lighting. The ambiance that you see here is your target for the party. As for furniture, the simpler the better. Make sure there are places for everyone to sit and places for everyone to put their drinks down.
Now we’re going to have to talk about what the party guests are going to be wearing. For the men it’s going to be very easy. Classy suites, hair parted on one side or with 60′s hats, and nice brown loafers. The women are a different story though. Starting from the head down, even make up on the face with bright red lipstick. Hair is easier to get it looking like it’s from the 60′s if it’s up. If you would prefer it down though, parted to the side like the men and curl the ends. If you google “Mad Men hairstyles” you will get plenty of ideas.
Now in the 60′s, parties were not only in peoples living rooms. Especially since it’s still the summer time, the party can move into the back yard and having a pool party! You will have a great laugh when all your friends are looking a bit nerdy trying to be super classy. But that is the fun of having a Mad Men Party. Just make sure you put on your aviator glasses on and your colorful bathing suit!
Halloween is on its way and you want to make sure everyone in your family is involved this year, even your pets! So I went to scour the internet to find some of the cutest and best priced costumes for small dogs available. So lets not waste anytime and get to the fun stuff!
Celebrity Dog Costumes
We start off with the best of the celebrity dogs. If you find the right costume, everyone is going to know who your dog is dressed up as. So before you see the descriptions of each of these costumes, try to guess who the dogs are dressed up as!
That’s right, it’s none other than Mr. T himself! He pities the fool that doesn’t remember this iconic tough guy. From the wild hair cut to the jewelry he always wore around his neck, your dog will feel like a bigger dog with this outfit. If you want to know more about the Mr. T dog costume, click on the image!
This is more for the crowd that follows Pop Music, but this is Katy Perry from her California Gurls music video! The iconic blue hair will get any Katy Perry fan to smile at your pup when she walks down the street.
Everyone that has ever heard good music will know this one. This red jacket from the wildly famous Thriller Music Video, and the curly Q hairstyle that goes with it creates a perfect Michael Jackson Canine.
Unique Dog Costumes
So I hope you figured out each of the previous costumes on our list of great dog costumes, but there are a good amount of people out there that want a good theme or just a unique costume. So we start with the pirate dog costume. A great costume all around and since pirates are popular right now, you can find a matching costume for yourself and come out with a gang of pirates on Halloween!
And to have a little more fun with some of the cutest costumes we have ever seen, we have Dinosaur Dog Costumes! Very affordable and great for any dog, these will make your dog the talk of the block when you walk him out on Halloween.
Here we have a Corgi in a Stegosaurus costume and looking super cute. Made of a very light foam material, your dog will be walking around looking like a creature from the dino period in comfort. Very easy to put on and it looks great once on, unless your dog hates clothes, this is one outfit that works. And this is not the only dino centric outfit we found, we loved seeing this next one just as much as the stegosaurus!
If you’re a fan of Raptors or even just liked that scene in Jurassic Park where the kids were being stalked by raptors, you can order this creative Raptor Dog Costume! If you can, get the Jurassic Park outfits for your kids and have a movie themed costume set that includes your pup. It will be a Halloween where everyone will be commenting on your facebook pictures. Who wouldn’t want that!
All these dog costumes are available and affordable. And not only that, if you have a large breed dog, most of these come in multiple sizes to fit all dogs! So if you liked something up on this wall, or even just liked the style of one and wanted to see what else is available, please feel free to click on one of the images and continue to search through the other costumes! If you dress your pup up, send us an email showing us and you can find you and your dog on the MPP Blog!
HEY! If you’ve ever turned the TV on in the last year, you’ve seen Willie and his crew messing around when they should be putting together duck calls. And when they’re messing around, things are usually blowing up or getting crazy. Now that Halloween is coming up, if you dress like Willie or someone from his crew, people are going to know who you’re dressed up as. So we here at MPP decided to go looking for the most affordable and best costumes we could find, these are them!
We start with the one and only Willie! CEO of Duck Commander and the smart one of the bunch. He has brought the company to new heights along with giving his crazy family too much money to play with. Great guy all around that tries to put up a great example for his employees and kids. If you want to know more about the costume, click on the image and it’ll take you right to where you can buy it. If you also want to complete the costume, make sure you buy yourself a set of awesome RayBan’s!
If you’re looking to be the craziest one of the bunch, you need to look no further than Si! Always with his tea on hand and as many unique popular saying variations he has, Si is one character that you better know how to act as if you’re going to put on this costume. This man is so fast that a speed camera can’t even measure his punches and so smart, can almost closely recite popular song lyrics. Si is one man that Duck Dynasty loves to have. Just like Willie, if you’re wanting more information on this costume, click on the image and you’ll be sent directly there.
MyPartyPlanner is on the lookout for really cool and popular costumes that are affordable, so keep checking back for the latest in what we find. And also if you’re thinking about getting a group of your friends to be the Duck Commander workers, please send us some pictures and we’ll post your images here! Have a great Halloween and I’ll post again soon!

Labor Day, or Labor Day Weekend since Labor Day is on a Monday, is on its way. Landing on the first Monday of September, this year it comes on September 2. Hopefully we are giving you plenty of time to prepare for an All American BBQ with the family and so all the ladies out there has a chance to wear the rest of your white summer clothes! Of course for most Americans, Labor Day is the day we honor the hard working with BBQ’s and Parades. Us hard workers need a vacation sometime! So MPP is always here to give you tips on how to make it a great day!
The best way to spend a great weekend where most people are not working, is a picnic with the entire family over with a few close friends. And don’t forget, since we are celebrating the American Worker, you should get tons of patriotic silverware and plates! If you want to find a bunch of fun and easy Patriotic Supplies, Click Here! Ordering stuff now will make sure you’re not rushing a few days or hours before your picnic and find that everything at the store is all sold out!
Now, many people are going to wake up and turn on a Parade on their television or go take the kids to the city Parade if you live in a big enough city. But may we suggest getting the kids involved and find some way for them to put on a parade for the family! Of course there isn’t much out there to help make the crazy big floats you see on TV, but we do have a section for Parade Floats Supplies to get you started. Talking about everything that can be done during this weekend is already getting me excited for it!
Now since we are a party site, we can’t really help you with the food you are going to have to get. Just know, that it’s not going to be very hard to know what to buy, just make sure you buy early and buy enough. The reason for this is because there will be a ton of people fighting for the same kinds of food for the one weekend. Hamburgers and Hotdogs are the go to foods for your picnic. Very traditional, but also very easy to cook a lot of it at one time. Don’t forget that some of your guests may be vegetarians and you will have to find something for them to eat as well. Honestly, you will be on your own for that kind of food, i’m a meat eater that loves soda and chips. I would be covered at any picnic!
We do hope you have a great weekend, and if you’re out of the state or even country that you come from, don’t panic if you can’t have a huge party or haven’t been invited to one. Find a special person in your life at the moment and appreciate the great weather and time you’re spending with them. Labor Day is for every hard working person here in the U.S. and we welcome everyone to celebrate it the way they want to. Last but certainly not least, we want to Thank everyone out there that is working hard to make all of our lives better within these States we call United.
