Bringing People Together.
Who else is beyond excited for the live action version of The Beauty & The Beast to come out?! I'm all but jumping for joy at the moment & have decided to compile a fun list of fun party ideas (Beauty & The Beast themed parties are going to be an inevitable trend for our little one's birthdays, as well as for big-kid-type adults, such as myself.) too pass the time until I can take my daughter on a much needed mommy-daughter date to watch the movie. I want to be crazy & attempt to go on the release day, but I'll opt to wait until the lines have calmed down a bit.
Anyways, enough rambling! Here are some awesome Beauty & The Beast party ideas!
Start the party off with a bang by ordering a grand balloon arch... castle style! Or some decorative balloon bouquets you can sprinkle around the party area to give it that fun party atmosphere.
You can even go the extra mile and add cute blue bows to your balloons, or draw cute eyes on them to help turn your home into that epic, enchanted castle (Better yet, put eyes on absolutely everything!).
Talk to our Balloon Specialties who can help you design the perfect balloon masterpieces for your even!
Photo Booth Magic
Find a local Photobooth Rental Company who can come to your home (We recommend Wish Photobooth, a local business.) with their specialty camera, lighting, printer & backdrops and let the kids (and adults) have a blast playing dress-up. Your guests will also get some pretty awesome keepsake prints out if it!

A Rose By Any Other Name...
The iconic rose is a pretty big deal & it just wouldn't be a Beauty & The Beast party without it! You can purchase a pre-made rose from this Etsy Shop or make some yourself using a cut up soda bottle & a red rose from Michaels Craft Store!
You can even do a Rose Craft with the kiddos!
The Magical Characters
I wasn't kidding when I mentioned you should put eyes on everything! Just print out those wide-eyed-disney-styled eyeballs and stick them on your broom, fridge, chairs, tv...etc. Or you can create a wonderful Chip party favour buy decorating some plain white tea cups (Ikea has pain white ones that are the best price) or you can print out this Chip Craft for the kids to do! They also make great place setting decorations you can get creative with!
You can really have fun with the yummy teats your guests will fill their tummies with! Find local bakers like Delightful Tastes and Sugar & Spice Bakery who can create some magical Beauty & The Beast Inspired treats for your guests, and/or make some goodies yourself! You can have fun with your Chip Teacups & do a Red Rose hot chocolate (Or cupcake). You can do Red Rose mini angel cakes with some Shirley temples on the side! The possibilities are ENDLESS!
I hope we have given you some great inspiration for your Beauty & The Beast party! Don't forget to make (or order) a cute "Be Our Guest" journal & have your guests write a little note about their experience, and kind words for the birthday boy/girl (Or woman/man) so that they can also have a cute memento will will hold onto forever & ever!
You're getting married & it is now up to you to pop the question... too your possible bridesmaids! We are here to help you out with some creative ideas that may put your own proposal from your hubby to shame. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon gather your nearest & dearest together for some pink champaign (or tea) & a nice brunch! Perhaps at a local establishment such as the classy Cafe Cristal, the rustic Heart & Soul Cafe, the relaxing Strathmere Retreat Cafe or the charming Alice's Village Cafe! Create the prefect setting in which you can hand out their thoughtful proposals!
Have a bouquet of beautiful balloons at the ready (One for each person) & have a calligraphist (or someone with great penmanship) write, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on the balloons. Hand them out to your friends & have a photographer on hand to take some really cool pictures with fresh/happy faces & pretty cool balloons! Or you can put little notes inside the balloons and have your bridesmaid pop the balloons in order to retrieve the little notes! Warning: Activity may be loud!
