We are so excited to introduce to you a series of videos we hosted in collaboration with Food.com! A few months ago, we had the opportunity to feature four amazing DIY parties and show how to create tons of party crafts, decorations, favors, and recipes!
Malissa and I spent a couple months putting together these parties and really poured our heart and soul into each! Along with our creative directors at Food.com, we came up with four fun themes and 12 DIY elements for you to follow along with! Each party has its own video, and each DIY element has been broken down into its own short segment for you to watch as well.
This was our first foray into video ever! We barely even share videos on our Instagram, let alone on the blog. But its a segment that we have been hoping to get into. With the crazy end of 2016 we had (read: I had a second baby who was also very sick, and, you know, America *eyeroll*) we really didn’t think early 2017 is when we’d get a chance to try out a new media. But, we were so thrilled for the opportunity when Food.com reached out, we were immediately on board!
It was a lot of hard work! But a lot of fun too! And a GREAT learning experience. We busted our bums and now we are so excited to see the fruits of our labors and share it all with you!
These videos are titled “Party Starters!” and they are meant to encourage just that, starting a great party! Though we worked hard on these, we ended up creating several very easy to do parties. All the themes are universally loved and the kind of thing you’d say, “Hey! Lets do this TONIGHT!” So, with that in mind, we wanted these parties to be easy enough for any family or friend group to throw together real quick. We decked ours out A Joyful Riot style :) but any of these can be done in a pinch and on a dime. They can also be expanded way beyond what we’ve done here! These are just to inspire you to start a fun themed night with your loved ones!
The four themes we featured are: A Movie Night Party, A Donut Party, A Pizza Party, and A Sprinkles Party! All four parties featured a DIY decor element, a DIY party favor, and an easy recipe! We will be doing an individual post on each of these parties and DIYs, linking to the videos, written instructions, and templates! We also want to share some behind-the-scenes tidbits, insights, additional info and of course photos!
We’ve got oversized desserts, unicorn popcorn, donut clutches, homemade sprinkles, printable labels, glittery star marquee lights, sprinkle covered everything, lightweight awnings, flair pins, mini piñatas and tons of decoration and food ideas! Plus more!
We were very lucky to be a part of this experience and we hope you’ll stick around to see all the fun! I’m certain there is something here for absolutely everyone. And at the very least, go ahead and watch Malissa and I learning how to be in front of a camera haha! We’re hoping to take what we’ve learned and apply that to more videos in the future, which hopefully you’ll stick around for too!
We will be sharing all about our donut themed party, including a fun paper awning, a giant donut cake, and the cutest little clutches, this Friday, August 4th! So check in here for photos, links, videos, and behind the scenes fun!
