A bit of a different twist to a timeless theme. I have been wanting to design a luau themed party for quite a long time now but I wanted it to be different from what is available. Most party supplies that I see are really bright colors with the common tiki and hibiscus flowers. Although I do love the bright colors that are commonly used for luau parties I wanted to offer something that could give an alternative to the bright colors since everyone has different things that they like.
Metro-Events on Zazzle offers: address labels, thank you cards, envelopes, napkins, cups, paper plates and more!
If you prefer to print invitations yourself, Metro-events does have offer printable files available as well through our Etsy shop:
Some may be reluctant to get printable party files for a birthday or baby shower because they don’t know what to do to put this stuff together or they think it’s going to be a lot more work then they want to put forth. I admit the first time that I put a printable party kit together it was a lot of work… The outcome wasn’t as awesome as I had hoped either.
I have learned, after creating over a dozen of these better ways of doing this. Printable parties are awesome because they allow customizations, they are unique and they are not factory produced. This is one of the reasons I started designing them. This fairy party kit is now discontinued from my shop, I have since become a better graphic designer and I feel this isn’t my best work though I really loved it at the time.
Printable parties don’t have to be extremely time consuming to put together and they don’t have to cost a fortune. You don’t need a professional party person. If you are on a budget you can still throw a fabulous party! Here are some hint’s to help out.
Figure out what you need. At Metro-Event.com I offer a ton of items but you do not have to get a full kit, honestly as I have put kits together I realized that printing everything that I have in the kit can actually be quite wasteful. Not everything is used. You can get a smaller party kit through the metro-events party shop where you can choose your own kit by using the “Build Your Own Kit“. Here is how it works:
Choose the number of items that you want out of the 29 party printables that are available.
Purchase the number kit that corresponds with the items that you would like, for example: If you wanted an invitation, cupcake toppers, thank you card & favor tags this would be a 4 item kit.
Once you purchase the kit send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the items that you want in your party kit along with the information that you want on the custom designs.
THAT’S IT! WAIT FOR THE EMAIL FROM METRO-EVENTS THAT WILL CONTAIN YOUR CUSTOM PARTY FILES.
Get the tools that you need for creating the party. Tools are EVERYTHING! If you try to cut everything with scissors it will make your hand hurt and take forever. The following are the recommended tools that help create these wonderful parties!
For the 2″ favor tags use a 2″ hole punch: Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon that can be used online if you don’t have a store near you, this coupon makes all of these items affordable: 2″ hole punch at Hobby Lobby
For large circles use a large circle cutter, I have found that the Martha Stewart circle cutter works best. This circle cutter does take a little bit of getting use to so I recommend drawing some different sized circles on pieces of paper to practice using the tool. If you try using it on your prints you may ruin your prints and have to spend more money re-printing the party designs, once you have learned how to use the tool it’s easy. Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter.
For straight cut party designs you can use scissors however if you have a paper cutter that is less stress on your hands. I am not a huge fan of paper cutters myself because I can’t seem to get the designs cut close to the edge. I prefer to use a ruler, x-acto knife and cutting board. I learned how to use these when I was in college learning graphic design and yes I have tried to cut my finger off a couple of times so you have to pay attention to what you are doing! This is the best for me personally however I am a picky graphic artist that needs my prints to be perfect. So if you are a perfectionist like me learn how to use a ruler and x-acto knife!
If you get a party banner there are number of ways to put these together… I have tried them all! You will need a regular hole punch to punch holes at the end of the pendants or a x-acto blade to slice slits. Here are options to adhesive them together. You can make the banner a little bit stronger and add extra design to it by cutting pieces of scrapbook paper a little large then the pendant triangles and paste the 2 pieces together. If you have a Cricut cutter they do carry a pendant cartridge, this is the easiest way to cut background paper. For gluing the 2 pieces of paper together spray adhesive will work however the stick does wear off of them and the printing paper may fall off of the scrapbook paper so the pioneer glue is a better option to avoid this issue.
Ribbon or string, this option cost a bit more because the prices of ribbon is a bit more. There are a couple of ways to use ribbon. You can tie each pendant together with a piece of ribbon and make a bow or you can string the ribbon through all of the banner pendants then tie the ends. The photo below shows the banner linked together with ribbon, I actually sliced the ends of the banner paper to create slits on this one so that the ribbon would lay flat.
ii. Another option for attaching party banners is to use brads. It’s funny a lot of people don’t think they have heard of brads until I show a photo of what they look like. Brads are the less expensive way to link the pendants together. There is also more control when using brads because they twist with the paper easily once they pendants are linked together.
Glue, I prefer this glue called pioneer glue. This stuff is pretty amazing, it’s inexpensive and it sticks to nearly everything, it’s also not messy because it’s a stick. Hot glue or whatever glue you prefer is fine to use as well.
If you are going to use the cupcake toppers make sure to get some sticks for it. You can get the candy sticks but I prefer Woodsies. Woodsies are awesome for the toppers, it’s flat so they stay on a better. Candy sticks are round which makes it a little more difficult to stick to flat paper. Woodsies are also super inexpensive! 750 for $4, you only have to purchase them one time and you will have enough for quite a few parties. You can also paint them to match your party, if you want to get really creative add rhinestones to them!
Look around your house for items to use, you don’t have to buy EVERYTHING!
Spray paint old bottles and jars. This is a great inexpensive way to add matching party decorations to your printable party items and it’s also a good way to reuse old things for something cool!
4. Make some things for CHEAP!There are a number of things that are really inexpensive that you can make. the stand that is shown in the image above is something that I made. The total cost was under $10 and you get six of the stands because the terra cotta pots that I use come in packages of 6 for under $4 at Hobby Lobby.
Now that I have created a few different parties using the printables created by Metro-Events. I have created some better parties.
I will continue this series of hints to help out so please check back on Metro-Designs & Event Services blog for more later! Please comment for questions or feel free to email!
These party decorations were created for New Years Eve 2014, since it’s a vintage style party designs it’s in some ways timeless, I always love timeless designs. The vintage art deco/ art nouveau period of art history has always been one of my favorite eras so I thought it would be great to create a design for New Years Eve party inspired by it.
This was just a small get together that I had for the celebration, I had served the following snacks:
Garlic cream cheese and crackers
Italian tortilla wraps
Lots of Chocolate!
All of the glass items used were from the dollar store! I just spray painted them with gold spray paint. I couldn’t find gold glass in the store and I didn’t want plastic. Since I could not bring myself to spray paint something that cost very much money the dollar store turned out to be the perfect place to find glass! I spray paint EVERYTHING! If you get Rustoleum spray paint it will work for just about anything.
Over the summer I had found this really cool old metal scale at a flee market for $10! I Spray painted it gold and used it to hold some of the chocolates. This was probably one of my favorite decorative pieces that was used in the party.
I also made the black “dip stands” I picked up little plant pots from hobby lobby then glued and painted them.
