Welcome to Parties and Fun

Hi Everyone

My name is Lisa and I have created this blog to help people plan parties and get ideas to create fun and create parties favors, tablescapes and more...

I have always loved to plan parties and create cute favors for my guests. My motto is always take care of your guest. That is why you invited them. When I invite you to my house I want to make sure you enjoy yourself and feel comfortable. 

Here are just a few rules when having a get together.

1. Make sure you mix the right people. If you are going to invite some friends over make sure they like each other. I watch Orange County House Wives and they are always throwing some type of party and they always are fighting and not getting along. Why would you invite people over that don't like each other. That just makes an uncomfortable situation for everyone. 

2. I like to make it small. If you can. Have about 10 good friends or people you know will mix well.

3. Have a theme. People love themes. Maybe even have them dress with a certain color or outfit. Ex. Host a summer party and ask them to wear light color colors like aqua and lime. Then create a beach theme using those colors for the tables. You could decorate with shells and sand. That could be a later blog:))

4. Set up a table where everyone can see each other. Maybe a round. Those are the best for seeing everyone and you can add lots of decorations to the tables.

5. Make the tablescape simple but fun. You see this Holiday party was simple but fun. I used a red table runner and different plates for each table. I used some candles in the middle which I decorated using a gingerbread theme. (one of my favorites) Sprinkle some cute sparkles around and you have a fun table that your friends will love. 

6. It is always nice for your friends to go home with a small token of the fun. In this party I used this cute gingerbread cookie that I found at the dollar tree. I tied it to the napkin using a sweet ribbon. You could always create use something like this to create even a nice name tag too Just print out a cute label and attach to cookie or whatever little token you find.

7. The food. That is always one of my tough shoe to fill. Make it simple. You can order some premades to help save time and make some stuff a head of time. And maybe ask some of the guest to make their dish. 

8. Make sure you enjoy your party. Take time to enjoy your guests. We sometimes get so wrapped up that we don't sit down to enjoy.
