Party Decorations: Setting the mood with a theme
Start with a Pinterest board to get inspired by Pinterest-worthy parties. There are hundreds of themes you can easily save onto your board like the type of bachelorette, baby shower or toddler party you’re looking for. You’ll want to save things like types of desserts and cakes that will fit your theme as well. Remember that details are important since it’s the littlest things that count. Once you have everything on a board, you’ll send them to a list of decorators you’ve chosen.

What could this look like for you?
This Christmas, Play by Double A innovated a game called: “Santa’s Workshop featuring ‘The Nathanis’”. The family was split up into teams of 3, and each member played the part of either a little kid, or one of Santa’s elves. Helping Santa prep for Christmas Eve in the North Pole, the teams raced against each other to write letters, sing Christmas carols, and wrap presents for kids around the world.
