Inspiration: Father’s Day – Super Dad

Photo Source

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th, and it’s the perfect time to let your dad know how SUPER he is.  Piggy Bank Parties has even created this amazing set of Super Dad printables, and you can download them for free.  All they ask in return is that you “like” them on Facebook.

Of course you’re going to need some goodies for dad on his special day, and these cakes, cake pops, cookies, and cupcakes would surely be a hit.

Don’t have time to make anything for dad, but still want to give him a sweet treat?  These free candy bar wrappers from Lauren McKinsey Designs are perfect.  Just wrap them around a candy bar, secure with tape, and you’re done.

If your dad isn’t a sweets lover, then how about this free soda pop tag printable from Whipperberry?  Just attach with ribbon or twine to your dad’s favorite soda pop.

Hopefully you’ve got enough inspiration now to create a super day for the Super Dad in your life.  For more great Father’s Day ideas and printables, be sure to visit some of these great blogs – Tip Junkie, Eighteen25, Living Locurto, How Does She, Shindig Parties To Go, Tatertots and Jello, and Catch My Party.  Enjoy!


Party Obsession: Dr. Seuss Party

I’ve been seeing a lot of Dr. Seuss themed parties lately, and I must say, I LOVE them!  There are so many options, because you can either pick one of his books as a theme, or you can combine a few of your favorites.

Some of the more popular themes seem to be The Cat in the Hat.  Like this baby shower designed by KojoDesigns.

You could also go with any one of the many other Dr. Seuss books, and still have a cute party.  Just look at this Horton Hears a Who display on Kara’s Party Ideas.

A photo booth is sure to be a fun addition at a Dr. Seuss party.  Just look at these cute prop ideas from Creative Baby Shower Ideas and Briar Patch Lane.  Just paint an empty frame the color you’ve chosen for your party, add a couple coordinating props, and you’re good to go.  If you’re a little more crafty, then painting a cutout of your character would look great.  Really, there are just so many options.
