Easter Eggtravaganza Event at The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale and Aviano!

Parties On Purpose had the pleasure of providing Easter themed Glitter Tattoos for an event last Saturday.  We have a blast!  The event was put on by Aviano and The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale.  We have worked with them in the past and are always so happy when we get to be at one of their events.  Thank you Christy and Caitlin!

There were lots of activities for all the children such as Easter Egg Hunts, a Petting Zoo, Face Painting, Bounce Houses, Games, the Easter Bunny, a Stilt Walker and Glitter Tattoos by Parties On Purpose.  It is always so much fun for us to have a chance to meet all the families.  Fun Fact!  Did you know that we are usually the last vendor to leave at family events (if we are not booked for another engagement right after)!  Why you may ask?  We can’t say no!  We never want anyone who wanted a tattoo to leave without one.  A sad face is truly our kryptonite! Lol!!

Why I Love Glitter!

As most of you know, I am a party planning mama who loves parties, parties and more parties!  I have to confess something though…I am truly obsessed with Glitter.  So much so that I am always trying to find ways to incorporate it into my party themes.  Yes, the birthday party themes on Parties On Purpose are such in that it would be easy to add glitter, glitter and more glitter.  Now I have been so in love with it that I am trying to add glitter to themes that don’t even require glitter or where glitter really wouldn’t fit in.  One of the “non girly” parties that I am working on now is a Horse Themed birthday party.  I have it all planned out with fun activities, games and a cute little horse themed craft.  But what do I want to do?  Add glitter!!  Don’t horses wear glitter on occasion?  I had to restrain myself.

Now I want to tell you about what has caused me to go down this glitter path with which no one can return!  For our birthday parties, we do several craft activities, makeovers, mini-mani’s and glitter tattoos, all which require glitter.  If you could have only been with me at these parties, or have been one of the moms or one of the invited quests and had the pleasure of witnessing the sparkle, the amazement, the excitement, the perfect little smile from the birthday girl and her guests, then you would know.  We’ve even had boys and grown men (not naming names) that have been wowed by the sparkle of our glitter tattoos.  Who knew a skull head could be so sparkly!

If you want to change the word, even for a moment, even just with a few people…just open a bottle of glitter!  Trust me, it will make you smile!

Getting ready for the Sweet Heart Cafe

Happy Friday everyone!  I posted a few pictures last Saturday on Face Book but was not able to share them all with you until now.  Laura Maloof and I had so much fun putting this event together or North Ridge Community church.  When the Children’s Ministry Director Bev and Children’s Ministry coordinator Lisa asked for our help, we were more than happy to do so.  Laura and I met up at Hobby Lobby to get a few accessories and I have to say, there’s a lot of LOVE going on in Arizona because the Valentines area was almost sold out!  Wow!  I then ran over of Party City to get some small accessories but I was so happy with these printables I found on Paging Supermom’s blog.

Here’s a few pictures of our event prep…

Make a big impact with big Birthday Party Balloons!

I am sure that most of you have seen those amazing, beautiful and gorgeous balloons all over the pages of countless party blogs and websites.  I have to say, here at Parties On Purpose, we are in love with them.  What I love about them for children’s parties is that you can make such a huge impact with such a simple decorative item.  The balloons are great for birthday parties, wedding, showers and much more!  They are even great for photographers!  If you are planning to put together a party or event, consider adding a few big balloons to add that WOW factor!  I purchased my balloons for a recent birthday party from the Petite Party Studio.  So easy, so simple!!  Love it!!…
