Fun at the Farm

Ahhh Fall..the leaves are turning, air is crisp, pumpkin patches are popping up and cider is flowing. What’s not to love?

Throwing a farm themed party is the perfect way to celebrate this season. Set out bales of hay, put on your cutest overalls, cook up some of your favorite fall foods and have some fun outside with your pals. Below are some tips for throwing a farm party!

SET THE TABLE

Pull in different colors, patterns and fun shaped plates for this tablescape. We used these items:

You can get all of these on our site! (Chickens not included 😉 )

PLAN ACTIVITIES

Need a super fun activity to keep the kiddos entertained? Try making these adorable pigs!

YOU WILL NEED

  • Pink Plates
  • Markers
  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes

This craft is super east! All you need to do is cut out two pig ears and a nose. Decorate the nose using your markers. Then glue the ears, eyes and nose on the plates.

If you had white plates you could make cows as well, or yellow plates to make chickens. Let the kiddos get creative and decorate their animals however they want!

We can’t wait to see your fall themed celebrations. Tag us @jollityandco and use hashtag #partywithjollity – hope you have a good ole time!

Theme: Breakfast Board | Mauve-Elous Charger Plate

We all love a good charcuterie board, right? Beautifully displayed meats, cheeses, tasty crackers… YUM! Well, since snack boards have been all about creativity lately (think dessert and candy boards), we thought it could be fun to make one at home (but with a little competitive spin!)

Theme: Fiesta Board | Femme Charger Plate, Avocado Canapé Plate, Spicy Canapé Plate

Take game night with your couple friends to the next level by having a Snack Board Contest. Think outside the box and make sharable boards using all of our favorites snacks and treats!

Here is how it works:

  1. Each couple picks a theme for their board (Shh! Keep it a secret).
  2. Make a shopping list and have everyone bring their groceries to the host’s house.
  3. Pour a glass of wine and start building your board!
  4. To amp up the intensity, set a timer.
  5. Once time is up, have everyone guess what each theme is and vote for the best board.
  6. The winning board can be based on appearance, food styling, overall creativity and deliciousness.

LDW Pool Party!

This summer has come and gone, but we can’t say goodbye without one last bash! What better way to celebrate the final days of summer then lounging poolside with your squad? Check out our 5 tips to throwing an unforgettable pool party this holiday weekend!

#1 Theme

Choosing a theme can be simple and FUN! In the photo above, Klos and Co combined her love for beach balls and palm trees to style the chicest “Palm Springs Beach Ball Bash” right in her backyard.

#2 Photo Moment

Now that we have a theme, don’t be afraid to incorporate it everywhere! Document all of the fun with an epic backdrop! Don’t have ample amounts of wall space? No problem. Decorate the beverage area with a WOW-factor installation!

#3 Party Favors

Everyone loves a treat bag! When the kids have had enough pool time, lean into the theme and give them something fun to play with! Fill our Jellie Handbags with towels, sunnies and other adorable DIY goodies!

#4 Signature Cocktail

Now the parents get to have a little fun too, right!? Klos and Co served her Palm Springs Punch (pink lemonade for the kids, and a spritz for the adults). Add a fun drink stirrer or our Hey Pool Boy cocktail napkin to lean into the pool party theme!

#5 Pool Side Snacks

A sign of any great party is a good menu. Keep it simple, yet delicious and turn sliced watermelon into popsicles. Keeps your guests full all while trying to beat the heat!

Bonus points for setting a full tablescape! We love how Klos and Co carried the theme onto the deck table with our Vacay All Day cocktail napkins.

Now let’s get to planning! We’ve listed below a few of our summer favs that were featured above:
