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!

Miss America Party

Miss america party

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!

Mad Men Cocktail Party

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!

Duck Dynasty Costumes!

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.
