This is my end of summer blog celebration with some tropical fun! I made some easy diy paper palm fronds for my daughters party and I wanted to show just how easy they are to make. You can’t have a tropical party without some palm fronds. You could decorate a whole party with a bunch of these on banners, table decor, and with balloons. Add some pineapples too and you are good to go. They can be in any colors to matching party colors. I only made one size but make them in a variety of sizes to give it more dimension as well. I know fall is coming but who doesn’t want to stay warm and tropical with some tropical celebrations. They are probably needed more in winter. I live by the beach so tropical parties are always an option!

Summer is coming to an end and I thought I would go out with a bang! A bang of colorful fruit party ideas. I am ready for fun but I live by the beach and will definitely be continuing the tropical vibes all year! I made these simple pineapple party favors or treat cups perfect for a fruity or tropical party theme! These are fun for all kinds of parties for kids and adults. Pineapples are my favorite summer fruit to eat and they are just so cute for decorations too. I painted pineapples before for cute decorations, made pineapple cupcakes, and now pineapple party favors! I’m a one stop pineapple party idea place here. You can make these pineapple cups for party favors or to hold candy or other foods. Guests can unwrap them for a surprise food, that would be fun!
Some bouquets are sweeter than others. This sweet diy cinnamon roll bouquet is easy to make and a fun gift to give friends. You can make homemade cinnamon rolls or a package. I went the easy route with a tube of rolls. Add colorful sprinkles to brighten them up more and put them on bamboo skewers to make a bouquet. I love how this bouquet turned out and seriously who doesn’t prefer a bouquet that you can eat?! Edible bouquets are becoming more and more popular because birthdays are a time to splurge on your favorite treats. Cinnamon rolls also go great with coffee so making it in a coffee mug is a perfect fit. I just used a large plain white mug with colorful tissue paper. You could also decorate a mug to give as part of the gift or get one with a funny saying on it. Lets get these cinnamon rolls started!
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet just like the tutorial for the post. I made this floating tray with dollar store and dollar section materials. I have to tell you this isn’t 100% an original idea because I saw something similar. However, this is a much easier way to make it. I saw a tray that was made with pool floats and it included a lot of cutting and gluing to make the finished product. I don’t know about you but when I’m hanging by the pool I want to be lazy and relax. That is why I made this simple dollar store floating tray. It includes just a simple round tray and round float. If you cant find the round float at the dollar store check the grocery store for just a simple small float.
This year my daughter knew right away what her party theme would be. She has been obsessed with Moana lately and wanted to have a Moana party. It’s actually a really good movie, one of the best kids movies I have seen in a while. I couldn’t find a lot of actually Moana decorations but this time of year the party store is filled with colorful, tropical fun so I snatched up all of those fun decorations! I love how everything turned out and my daughter really loved it. Of course I had to DIY a few things but most of it was simple to put together. I hope I can give you some inspiration and ideas to make a fun Moana party! Let’s get this party started!
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because I’m moving this week and tired. Pardon any grammar mistakes. I also started this project one way and ended it another so I didn’t get pictures of the process for what worked.Originally I was going to use tissue paper for the firework part but it didn’t quite stay on right. In the end I used glitter glue to draw on little fireworks and I love how easy it was.
What you need to make them:
dollar store star balloons
Who doesn’t love fireworks! Ok dogs usually don’t and sometimes firework shows are just too crowded. However, once those beautiful shining fireworks start it is all worth it. That is one of the best parts of the Fourth of July and I wanted to make fireworks fun for kids too. Not with anything flammable because kids and fire do not mix! I’m talking about the squishy fun tissue paper kind. Kids can throw them all around and make their own firework show. They are also super cute for a decoration at parties! So lets bring on the summer and the Fourth of July with some fun fireworks!
These flamingos are almost too cute to eat but they are edible! I made some cute cupcake and donut flamingos that are super simple to make with printable flamingo heads to add as toppers then pipe cleaners for the legs. They are tall but they have to stand tall like a flamingo to be a true flamingo treat. This is another one that I made a video for hopefully the video will help show you how easy they are to make. I also have some easy instructions for the bodies.
All you need are cupcakes or donuts. I have to say I prefer the donuts with the candy melts but with frosting piping the cupcakes would look adorable!
Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to make. I am especially a fan of the easy recipes.Quick and easy is kind of my specialty. I especially love to make Mexican food probably because it is one type of food I could literally eat every day! Mexican food is also always a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love chips, salsa, guacamole, and tacos? It is one of the best foods to make for entertaining. This easy chicken taco bite appetizer is a fun appetizer to serve for guests. They look adorable and are guaranteed to disappear in minutes.
Graduation is such an exciting time and reason to celebrate! I remember how excited I was to graduate and move on to the next exciting stage of my life. I have some fun graduation party game ideas for both high school and college graduation parties. You don’t need anything too complicated or cheesy to have some fun at graduation. You can pick a couple games you like from the ideas I have that fit your crowd.
