Big Hero 6 Partying With Baymax

Who doesn’t love that big ball of chubbyness Baymax? He’s honorable, sweet, smart, strong, funny, and above all adorable. If you’re looking for a theme to your next party, Big Hero 6 is a winner. I hunted down all the Big Hero 6 decorations and party supplies I could find. Here are some cool things I found.

When preparing for a party the first things you need are the basics: plates, napkins, cups & invitations. Once you have these, you can focus on the other decorations and activities you want to have at your party.

Easter Party Decorations

I like to buy my party decorations online because I have a better selection of cute stuff. However, this means that I need to get started on the party planning and decoration shopping way early. Following that early-worm-gets-the-best-party-decorations-thinking, I decided to get started on sharing Easter party decoration ideas. So for all of you planning an Easter egg hunt, scavenger hunt or good old bunny party I will posting all my findings. You can also find more ideas on my Pinterest Boards for: Easter, Parties: Food, & Party Decorations.

Today, let’s get started with The Land of Nod’s Easter decorations & party kits. The Land of Nod has the most adorable set of Easter party decorations with banners, cookie cutters, bunny ears, plates, cups, egg decorating kits and more.

Easter Party Basic Set

The basic party kit will get you going with the basics you need: paper plates, matching napkins, adorable cups with die cut bunny ear sleeves, cupcake liners and cupcake toppers. Even if you were not considering having cupcakes at your Easter party, the cupcake toppers can decorate pretty much anything from cheese, fruit, cake, or sandwiches. Plus, cupcake liners can be filled with other things. For example, you can fill them with jelly beans that match your party’s theme. With just this kit you have an adorable Bunny Party in the making. For those of you who like to go overboard (like me) I will continue with the rest of their Easter party line. Onward!

Valentine’s Day at School

Minted has a great selection of custom classroom valentines cards & stickers. I remember being a little kid and my school had this brilliant idea of selling heart shaped lollipops. If you had a crush you could buy a lollipop that would be delivered to the student of your choice on Valentine’s Day. However, these adorable lollipops were not distributed to every kid. Let me tell you, it was heart breaking to be a third grader hoping you to get a heart lollipop and realizing – alas, you were not another third grader’s valentine. Wow, heartbreak starts so early. I mean, couldn’t we wait until middle school to learn the rejection lesson? I like it how these days everyone gets some love and kids take a treat or card for every classmate. Every third grader gets to feel special and no one is left out.

Gifts For Your Flexible Yoga Friend

Whether you are looking to buy a gift for someone who does yoga everyday, multiple times a day, and doesn’t care about materialistic things; or for someone who tends to go to yoga class right before their shopping sprees – you can’t go wrong with a yoga mat. It doesn’t matter what brand of yoga mat you own, if you use it everyday you will need to replace it eventually. Daily use wears the little grooves designed to stick to your feet, making the surface slippery when you sweat. So take a look at these beautiful yoga mats I found at Urban Outfitters and other colorful stores and see if any of them catch your eye.
