DIY The Party
Host a Japanese Garden Party in #DIYTheParty with Samantha.
Japanese Garden Party is an actual party I plan to throw at my new house once we move in, I love the idea of sitting outside with nature having some fresh brewed tea and delicious desserts, while dressed in relaxing kimonos with cute decor!
Celebrate Star Wars Day this May The Fourth in #DIYTheParty with Kim and her Star Wars themed party!
Star Wars has always been one of my favourite fandoms and Star Wars Day is the perfect reason to celebrate. So grab a Jedi robe, pop on one of the movies (or all of them back to back if you fancy a challenge) and of course May the Force Be With You.
Create an awesome Mario themed party in #DIYTheParty with Hello Sweet Taco.
I’ve been a huge Nintendo fan since I could talk, I grew up with them like family so what a dream a Mario party would be. The characters are all so fun and bright, their designs are iconic. Who wouldn’t want to smash open a Boo piñata? Or pin the tale on the Yoshi? Bobbing for mushrooms anyone? Okay maybe we’ll leave that one out

Create a party for the undead in #DIYTheParty with PixieFey.
With the new series of The Walking Dead (one of my favourite series) soon to be aired, I put together this undead list
Create an art deco inspired soiree in #DIYTheParty with campaspe.
The Art Deco style is a total art that influenced the design of fashion, furniture, cars, trains and more generally of almost all the objects in a household. It was an international style, influenced as well by the cubism, fauvism and exotic styles from China and Japan and therefore it still speaks to people in different country. It is classy, yet inexpensive and easy to adapt to all circumstances: mostly you will only need a black and white printer and a little bit of glue. Therefore it’s also an ideal theme for marriages and parties. For example, it’s a nice decor for Hercule Poirot style murder parties or treasure hunts since most of the town still have building from this style: To gather some friends, take pictures from details on these building that they will have to recognize on a path through the town.
Create the perfect family Christmas in #DIYTheParty with Beth.
Christmas is big in my family. It is the only holiday where we are all together and can celebrate as a family. Every year Mum makes a massive turkey and ham with roast vegetables, greens and gravy, despite it usually being 35oC. Dessert always consists of homemade plum pudding made and hung the month before by myself and Mum and trifle. As it is our big holiday, we have some traditions that simply must be followed each and every year, such as Grandpa carving the roast, my sister and I setting the table and laying the buffet, and everyone wearing the item of choice for the year, last year it was stripy red socks, the year before, woolen scarves. So the following are all items that are necessary for our Christmas party to take place and for it to be the foundation for great memories to be made.
Host a Paddington Bear afternoon tea for your cubs in #DIYTheParty with Cat.
I've started a new tradition of treating my family to Afternoon Tea on Christmas Eve and this year the theme was Paddington Bear. We designed the table to look like a train and each "passenger" got a set of bear ears, and a passport with the menu and a ticket from Darkest Peru to Paddington Station. We tucked into mini bear burgers, bear paw crackers, soup in marmalade jars and marmalade sandwich cookies from mini suitcases. After our tea, we went to see Paddington 2 at the cinema and it was the perfect day!
Make a splash and host a mermaid party in #DIYTheParty with PienderZ.
The winter is almost done! Thank God cause I am done with the winter! So let's celebrate the upcoming summer with a Mermade party! I love the colours of the sea, de shells and the vacationvibe. But I also love fantasy, so I decided to combine these two things. That's how I came up with this Mermaid Party. Give your party colours of blue and green and here and there a splash of red. For more inspiration to lift your party to the next level, check the tutorials I've picked out for jou. Have a great summer!!
Create a jungle themed party in #DIYTheParty with Helen W.
The weather is cold and grey at the moment so I wanted to create a party that would help transport us to more tropical climes. I decided a jungle themed party would be perfect. I'd invite my guests to create their own animal masks or maybe some funky animal print jewellery or a headdress. I'd set the scene with plants, fairy lights and wind chimes to help transport us into a another world inspired by far away lands. Of course, we'd need some snacks and who could resist guacamole or maybe some fruit pizza all washed down with some exotic punch or a super green smoothie for the drivers.
