PARTY TIME! EXCELLENT BALLOONS

We love parties! So I thought we'd dedicate today to party supplies, specifically balloons. There are so many incredible balloons now -- just one gets me in the party spirit. It makes sense that the queen of party crafting, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, now has an online party decor shop. I mean, dream come true, right? So lets start with some our favorites from OHD and move onto more great picks!

PARTYING WITH SURPRISE BALLS

Have you tried a surprise ball yet? They're so fun -- stickers, miniature animals and other little treasures wrapped in crepe paper to resemble a ball. They're made in the form of everything from fruit to flowers. We fell in love with Robert Mahar's bright beauties at Crafting Community in Palm Springs. They're perfect for holidays, keep the kids entertained at a party and can even be DIY'ed, if you're so inclined. Here are some of our favorites.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARTY SUPPLIES

Wanting to celebrate St. Patrick's Day but don't know where to start? Not feeling very crafty? Here are some great St. Patrick's Day party supplies to fill your celebration with green, gold and rainbow. You won't have to stay up all night to get lucky.

Let's start with the cupcake toppers, because that really sets the mood for the rest of the party, dontcha think? And how cute are the gold horseshoes in this cupcake kit?

Should you decide to go the cake route, here's Acme's rainbow bunting that will certainly accessorize well. 

Listen, I know we're celebrating the Irish, but the French really know how to do it, don't they? My Little Day takes tableware to a whole new level with this green triangles dinner plate via Shop Sweet Lulu.

You definitely need these rainbow stripe utensils. Don't worry, we'll figure out something to eat with them.

We shall call this the pot of gold cup.

Half dot rainbow garland from Land of Nod.

Bring that field of clovers feeling inside by covering your dining room wall in grass green honeycomb fans.

A gold piñata makes everything better. 

Don't forget the confetti

And the perfect party favor: a four-leaf clover temporary tattoo
