I could just gaze at pretty party pics all dayโ€ฆ sigh. But who has the time? So here are five our favorite party ideas to give a short, fun sample of inspiration.

I can safely say, I never wanted a bachelorette party until I saw what Geronimo Balloons created for this bash featured on 100 Layer Cake. The explosion of pink frill and gold balloons just makes me so happy. Now I need to have one!

I need this fiesta-inspired decor in my life, all day everyday. Beijos Events was at the helm of this gorgeous inspiration on Green Wedding Shoes.

The balloon arch to end all balloon arches. I mean, this just makes me want to cry. It's so incredible. Created by The House That Lars Built for BHLDN.

Here's one from our own moody spring dinner featured on My Domaine. Photo by One Eleven Photography.

These pretty donuts get me every time. So perfect for a baby shower. They're from a pink & gold sip n' see by Melissa Baum Events on 100 Layer Cakelet.


Cinco de Mayo calls for a flower crown, don't ya think? 

You'll need: 3-5 sheets of colored card stock, glue gun, scissors.

The paper flowers are based on this DIY from The House That Lars Built on Oh Happy Day, with a variation from Tania Fischer Design (if you're in California, I highly recommend Tania's giant flower class).

Make three flowers. Hot glue them to a headband -- glue them CLOSER together than you think they need to be.
