Fall Trends- Plaid and Deer

Fall calls for fun times with friends. A chance to get together before all the holiday busyness begins. The last few years I've had a pumpkin carving party. Not this year. I saw this invitation and a party idea formed. Who knew I would be so on trend. I had my party the first weekend of October and now BAM!  I'm seeing plaid and deer everywhere. 

Guests were greeted at  the door by an easy diy sign.  Small Moments  created the graphic. I took an artists canvas, wrapped it in faux bois contact paper, attached the graphic and added a feather. 

A splash of colour at the front door from the fall mums, buffalo check fabric and antlers on the pumpkin hinted of the party theme inside.  If you're on Instagram check out the hashtag for more photo's of the party. 
Hay bail from Michael's. Faux pumpkin glittered up with an antler template I made.
When we bought our house I knew this red wall was perfect for parties. You would think a cream wall would be better but this red goes great for Valentine's, Cinco De Mayo, fall, Christmas...

Red being my fav colour I just love the look of this fall spread. It makes me think of a cozy cabin in the woods. 

Fancy & Fold 's cupcake toppers fit the theme perfectly and added that rustic touch to my mini pumpkin cakes. These cakes are great for breakfast too.  

Yep, the table linen isn't smooth for a reason. I wanted it to look like a picnic blanket tossed onto a lawn for a fall picnic. 
Antlers borrowed from Bella Grey Designs.
The little fox place card holder I picked up at Khol's a few years ago. I knew it would be perfect for a party someday. 
If you want mini donuts for your party,Green Mountain Mini Baked  is who you need to order from. I had a hard time not eating all of these before my guests arrived. They make great party favors too.

The show stopper. Caramel Apple Snickers Cake. I followed the recipe from Half Baked Harvest. Does it look as pretty as her's? No. But here's the thing. My guests didn't care, they didn't know what it was suppose to look like and it tasted amazing! 

It's not a fall party without apple cider. 

After loading up on tasty treats my friends and I retired to the living room to catch up on everyone's summer activities and fall plans. I kept the comfy cabin feeling going with natural elements, buffalo check, candles and a great banner by Fancy & Fold

I can't help myself with the details. Sure the label on the wine bottle would have been fine. But look how great the label Small Moments created looks with everything. It blends seamlessly. 

Auntie Beas  acorn cookies mimic the acorns in the napkin rings and the glittered acorns from the table. Gratitude cards from Small Moments helped steer the conversation away from work.  Work dominates enough of our life and it's stressful enough. This party was all about fun and relaxation. No work stress allowed.  

Guests were sent home with homemade pumpkin scrubs.  They make your shower smell just like fall and your skin so soft. 

I hope you enjoyed this fall party. I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you use any of these ideas let me know.

Gift Guide-Bird's Party

From now through December I'll be bringing you Gift Guides from some of my fav party people. 

Up first is Bird's Party who's every issue of her magazine I look forward too. They are always filled with beautiful parties and inspiration. Let's take a peek at what Bird's Party would love to give and receive this holiday season. 

Bird's Party has her eye on this gold hammered metal drum table at Target.  "It would certainly make its appearance at many events but still look stylish around the home", says Bird's Party. 

As a party lover, any Rosanna cake stands would be a welcome addition to Bird's Party's collection and to the party lover in your life too. 

I snooped around the Rosana site and found these fun gifts too:

If you're more the type to give handmade gifts  Bird's Party thinks they're "so cool to make and give and that the packaging should reflect the love too." Bird's Party has selected some of her cutest packaging to help embellish all the DIY gifts.  

Favor boxes with satin bows , available in a variety of colours are perfect for small gifts or cookies.  You can add a thank you sticker for a personalized touch.  

Mini Retro Candy jars filled with fun candies make great place card holders and favors and are the perfect size for stocking stuffers.

Do you have a Secret Santa? Love to surprise friends with baked goods? Mini Gable Boxes are perfect. They come in so many colours and are easily dressed up with ribbon, stickers, bows and more. 

Who's ready to get a jump on their holiday shopping and DIY gifts? 
Thank you Bird's Party for the great gift ideas.

Etsy Shop-Did you know Fizzy Party had one

 Did you know I have a shop? It's full of fun party goods with more items coming soon. Tulle poms, tulle wreaths, yarn poms and fabric garlands are just some of the items you'll find. 
Fabric garlands are always fun for parties. This red check one in the shop is the only one available. I also have an orange and white one if those are more your colors. I really need to get that in the shop don't I. This red and white check one is similar to one I created for 4 Kids Cakes pizza party. 

This is one of my hottest items! Any guesses as to why? You got it, Frozen parties. I only have 4 available with the silver glittery snowflake. This wreath has been featured in parties by Soiree Event Design, Swishprintables and more. Great for winter parties, Christmas and New Years parties. 

Christmas is coming and this wreath is perfect as a backdrop for your party, as a welcome on your door or as a gift. Only one available. I'm going to be working on getting more in the shop. I have some fun snowmen and other Christmas ornaments that will be so cute in a wreath. 

I love creating products for peoples parties and if you have ideas for items you'd like to see in the shop, leave me a comment or send me an email and let me know.
