Resolution #6:
Throw more parties.
Guest Blog post by Elsie of A Beautiful Mess

Hello there! I’m Elsie from A Beautiful Mess and I am super excited to share some fun party ideas for this new year! I put this little party table together in 30 minutes, for under $40!


Parties with pals don’t have to be super expensive or time consuming to be fun and memorable. I opted for colored candies and fresh fruit and flowers. My sister, Emma, created this yummy raspberry sparkler cocktail too! Don’t forget to take photos of your cute parties and get-togethers because they’re a lot of fun to blog about too.



Here are a few sweet ideas for 2011 parties…

*Have a fancy ‘girls only’ tea party. Dress up and take lots of instant photos!
*Have a donut party. You know you want to…
*Have a movie themed costume party. Make sure you have your camera too. ;)
*Invite your pals over for a craft night. Be sure to collect lots of cute supplies in advance!
*Make your own photo booth backdrop for a cute get-together.
*Host a back yard camp out with friends, tents, sleeping bags and smores.
