Painting Concrete

http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/inspiring-ways-to-perk-up-your-patio-with-just-paint-or-chalk-229826
Sooooo it's August, and still HOT here in Charleston, SC so instead of actually working on projects I am dreaming about them. Our front porch is in need of some major TLC... MAJOR!
However, my budget is itty bitty... best news, I found my solution.

PAINTING CONCRETE!

I've been scouring pinterest trying to find the right idea and the picture above stopped me in my pinning tracks. IT'S PERFECT. Thank you Southern Living! Even the porch ceiling is haint blue.

Once upon a time, way back when in the deep South, many folks painted their porch ceilings a specific shade of blue to ward off evil spirits called "haints.
So neat right! Plus, that color blue is dreamy.

Oooo I am so excited, a new project on the horizon + budget friendly. Happy Friday!

Printable Wine Labels

http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1941/Book-Club-Wine-Label.htm
As I have entered my mid 30's I have really developed a true love for red wine.
The funny thing is, I only used to drink white... is this a sign of getting old?!? HA!

With my love for wine, I have started designing more and more wine labels for social situations.
How fun are these book club wine labels?!?!

Ooooo and for your new neighbor! Perfect for a welcome to the neighborhood gift basket.

Also, a fun bridesmaid wine label....
The best part... you can order these from Party Box Design in either a printable file for only $8.99 or we print, cut and ship the labels to you! So exciting + budget friendly.

It is WINES-DAY afterall!

Shark Party Ideas on a budget

http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1918/Shark-Birthday-Boy.htm
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/category_145/Printables.htm
I can't believe my baby boy is TWO. The days can be so long at times, but the last two years have literally flown by. My son Crew is a total water baby, or ahem TODDLER...
so a shark party was so fitting. This party was done on a serious budget, using mostly printables + creative shark party ideas.
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1918/Shark-Birthday-Boy.htm
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1919/Shark-Birthday-Boy-Water-Bottle-Label.htm
The main attraction was certainly the food + drink table. I used a roll of brown paper and drew a shark fin + added some budget friendly plastic sharks from amazon as décor and cupcake toppers.

Another highlight... Ocean Water!
{Blue Hawaiian Punch + Sprite + Vanilla Ice Cream!}
So much cuter then a juice box, and the kids loved it.

I couldn't resist adding shark water bottle labels and of course some Landshark!

The dessert options were fun and affordable, blue jello cups + cupcakes + Swedish fish.
Simple and delish.
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1920/Shark-Birthday-Boy-Bag-Topper.htm
The take home favors were adorable!
Blue chocolate covered popcorn, using printable shark bag toppers. Literally print + cut + staple.

This party was just pure fun, where I didn't break the bank and style certainly wasn't compromised.
The colors and patterns are really bright and cheerful. Any busy mom out there can pull off this entire party with ease and no one will ever know!

You can find all these items at Party Box Design!
HOPING to have inspired some party loving Moms and Dads out there!

Happy first week of school y'all!

I love when customers contact me and request custom invite + party décor designs! This might be my new favorite birthday party invite to date! If you have followed me for some time you know how much I love POPCORN, paired with PJ's ='s only the best party ever!!! OOOO and breakfast for dinner, yes PLEASE!

I designed these items, and couldn't help but blog about them. The awesome part, you can purchase these as printed items, or DIY printables! The water bottle labels are so fun right?!?

Also, the invite is pretty versatile and would really work for a variety of parties... movie night, sleepover party, girls weekend! Literally, the ideas are endless! 

I created some fun drink flags which you can see here!

Luau Party Invites + Friendship

http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1929/Hula-Happy-Birthday.htm
It's been such a busy + wonderful week here in SC.
My best friend of 16 years is visiting with her three kiddos and we are just having a blast.
Countless pool, park and beach hours have been enjoyed by all.

Last night we sat by the fire pit and made s'mores, laughed and enjoyed a gorgeous evening. These memories are so special and what life is really about. She lives 9 hrs away and we only see each other a few times a year, but always make the time count.
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/
Before they arrived I created a fun hula girl invitation. These invites can really be used for more than a birthday party... bridal showers, engagement parties, etc.
Anyhow I wanted to quickly blog this fun design in case anyone still reads this little blog and is looking for invites!

Enjoying every last minute of Summer over here and heading to the beach in a few!
You can find this luau invite over at Party Box Design!

Poolside Movie Night Birthday Party

http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1841/Poolside-Movie.htm
This might be one of my most popular birthday themes to date at Party Box Design!
I can't tell you how many movie night invites I have shipped out + digital files!
The reason being, it's such a fun party for kiddos and adults.
To sit outside, swim, float and watch a movie, just the most perfect Summer evening.

Plus this party can be done on a budget, which is always a bonus.
You can purchase the invites above in a digital file for only $16.99!
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1841/Poolside-Movie.htm
For this party I went ultra simple and the kids still had a blast.
You can buy candy + soft pretzels in bulk at Sams Club and make your own popcorn!
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/item_1843/Poolside-Movie-Beer-Label.htm
I did provide some delish adult beverages as well, but of course had to create some fun beer labels to match the party theme! I actually bought this really yummy beer called not your fathers mustache, it tastes exactly like root beer, but contains alcohol.
Literally the most perfect drink with some salty popcorn!
http://www.partyboxdesign.com/
This has been my most chill party to date, and instead of running around like a nut job, I actually relaxed a bit and enjoyed the movie with friends + family.
My daughter picked Pippi Longstocking, a total classic.

Oooo I purchased the simple banner from target and the popcorn boxes from Home Goods.
All super affordable and matched perfectly.

If you are planning a movie night soon, hopefully this post can offer a little affordable inspiration. I like to include some fun details, while also saving some money! If you get beer labels, buy a digital file... if you want printed invites maybe buy coordinating printables!

Happy party planning and be sure to visit Party Box Design for more inspiration!
