If you arrive from Stephanies Blog then you are in the right place. If you are just here visiting and want to start from the top click here KinderStampo Blog

Okay I really love Birthdays with all the planning and picking out the decorations matching everything to your party theme...

But what I love the most is the little touches...
I love name cards... don't know what it is
about having someone place
 your name {spelled correctly} that say your special
I wanted you here...

These adorable name cards where cut out of
Cricut Birthday Bash Cart
3" allows the flame to hang over
The hot pink tag was cut from
Once Upon a Princess Cart
I chalked around the edges and use my
Royal White Gel Pen to ink around the edges...

Can you see a entire table setting with these awesome
name tags with all your guest names...
Another tip for the perfect name card is to print your name on
clear avery labels, they work great and you can even choose a cute font...

Linda Peterson said...

Love the place cards---they are so cheerful looking. When my children were young, I always planned some kind of project -- one time it was painting on t-shirts---not a good idea-it was pretty messy but the kids loved it.

Brigitte said...

Those are so cute!!! I would recommend having lots of activity prepared, even if you know that you don't have time for all of them. You never know, the kids might not like some of them!

Brittney said...

Awesome name plates!


Tip: When you're having a dinner party, bring out the dishes that your food will be served in the night before and put a sticky note with what dish will be going in what. Then people wont be asking "what dish will the corn be in?" when they're helping. So simple (works really well for big dinners, i.e. Christmas)

spelsue said...

I'm a new follower. My party tip would be to have your camera/s available to all guests to take a snap so you don't miss anything. It's always interesting to see each guests perspective as well.

I'm going to lift your idea. I use a lot of place cards.

Julie said...

That candle is so cute and it's the perfect accent on your placecards! My pary tip is more of an idea. I like to do wish jars. I did this at a high school graduation party last year. We had the guests write down their wishes for the graduate and then sealed them in a jar for her to "reopen" after her college graduation.

JennyKozar said...

These are adorable! My Aunt shared a party tip with me years ago... she said you run around cleaning everything but the only person who sees that is the first guest to arrive. The rest focus on each other and the party itself. Don't stress about cleaning under the microwave - no one sees it!!!

I still stress about it but that is always in the back of my mind.

Thanks!

Melissa Bell said...

Wow those are really cute. I just helped make some place cards for my friends 30th birthday and I can't wait to share them. I guess my best party tip is don't forget to have fun. Sometimes you lose focus on the party itself when you are worried about making it perfect :)

Jenny said...

So cute! I am actually making invites for my daughter's first birthday this weekend and this would be a perfect fit for the party! Thanks so much!

I love the name cards. My party tip, every year for my son's birthday I make a 12x12 sign in sheet, mark an x on the back and it's an instant game. I love seeing how the kid's writing changes year after year, (mostly the same kids attend) Hope you liked my tip. :)

Great idea, thanks for sharing.

party tip- If its a baby shower have each guest right their name and address on an envelope, and do a drawing for a prize. Keep all the envelopes to mail thank you cards in to your guests. Saves on looking up all those addresses.

Love the name cards they are awesome.

ricet said...

This is such a cute idea! My party tip: I have guests fill out envelopes as they enter a party or celebration, with their name and address. Then I use the envelopes to pull names for door prizes and also to send my very own homemade thank you cards in. It saves me the set of addressing them all myself. I love your nameplates and am so excited to start following your blog!

LOVE these name cards and what a cute way to show each person they ARE special and so wanted at an event! When my boys were little, we had many parties and my best tip was to have several games planned to keep them having fun, prizes for winners and then some down time of just pure play and laughter! *Hugs* and TFS~

Scrappy Jackie said...

The Purple Scrapbooker said...

I am over the moon about these! The candle poping out over the card is just an amaing touch! I just can't tell you how much I LOVE this idea!! My party tip is to alway make sure your guests leave with something. It doesn't have to be something expensive, but a little something letting them know how happy you are they were able to join you.

Dee said...

I absolutely love your project for Jess. I am also a follower and glad to meet you through this hop. I really don't have any party tips for you since I don't drink. When I do have a little something, my one pet peve is that I never want to run out of food, I would rather have too much and give some to the guest or save it for leftovers. It is always nice to meet new friends & I have done that through this hop. TFS

Dee:)

Donna said...

My best party tip is to serve "Make Ahead Food" Anything that can be all ready to pop in the oven makes it so much easier to entertain!

Gina said...

LOVE these! Child or adult party these are great!! My tip: being a mom of 4 boys, took a long time to realize goodie bags need NOT be expensive, not the main part of the party. I use each year a pkg of 6 white t-shirts and iron on each child's name along with a pic of the theme (spongebob, cars, etc.)
They wear them all the time!

The place cards are so cute! Love the colors too. One year we made birthday party hats and let the girls decorate them for themselves. They loved it! This year I took a picture of each girl, sent it to a one hour photo and had them make christmas photo ornaments to put their picture in as their gift to take home. They had so much fun. kimmariebaker@gmail.com http://kimmarieskorner.blogspot.com

Too cute! Love the place cards & I bet the table would love awesome with them on it. My favorite party tip would be: Have someone else help you so that you are able to relax & enjoy yourself too.

Best party tip? HAVE FUN and worry about the small stuff later! (I used this philosophy at my wedding and it was GREAT!)

My favorite party tip is instead of giving candy as favors I try to find something theme (or color )oriented that is useful such as hair ties, barrettes, bows,cars...since so many kids have allergies these days and they love it. Also love putting it in a small purse from the $1.00 store another gift that is reusable.

Party tip: never serve Hawaiian punch if you have carpet. LOL!

Melissa said...

These place cards are so stinkin' cute! I love how the candle was cut bigger than the card and comes over the top! Nice touch!

My party tip is to always make more food than you think you'll need! Running out is never good and leftovers are a blessing! :)

Creating a Crafty Life said...

My favorite party tip is always have a craft table for kids. I cover a table with a long sheet of paper and put put crayons, markers, stickers, glue, pop sickle sticks and some other odds & ends and the kids love it!

These place cards are so cute!

Favorite party tip...well...I actually have a wedding tip. Does that count as a party? LOL. I tell this to all the brides to be I meet. Pencil in lightly little numbers on the back bottom corner of the RSVP cards and keep track in a spread sheet of which number was sent to which person. This is easy if you use excel to oragnize addresses and RSVPs. That way, when one comes back with no name or a name you can't read (It happened to us!) then you know exactly who sent it. :)

Instead of spending $200 at "Chucky Chesse's" I had my grandson's party at "Chic Fil A"
it was wonderful..... the children played and ate... I was soooo glad it all turned out so good. It was his first party and I said for a one year old, I have never seen such a cool and amazing party.
I always enjoy reading your blog, it is always inspiring. Thank you

p.s. McDonald's no longer host parties, so chic fil a was the only one who allowed us.

Simply AJ said...

What a great idea! I am already a follower and always enjoy your projects. I put out different color Sharpie markers for ppl to write their names on their solo cups - easy fun way to keep up with drink and the kids love it and usually draw hearts and pictures along with their name.
