Game of Thrones Viewing Party

Game of Thrones! The drama, the secrets, the lies, the betrayal, and the loss of so many favorite characters! I threw a Game of Thrones Season Premiere Viewing Party, but you can do this for any episode and it would be perfect for the season finale! In this podcast I talk about decorations, food and tablescape, making a cake in the shape of Winterfell, and a chest with Daenerys’ Dragon Eggs.

Avengers Birthday Party!

I have been wanting to doing a superhero party for a while and with the new Avengers movie out, it was the perfect time! This party was so much fun, I love the bright colors, the kids (and adults) loved the games, masks, and capes, and I loved how the cake turned out! In this podcast I’ll cover how-to’s for the masks, capes, cake, comic popcorn cones, Hulk smash wall, Hawkeye bad guy target shoot, and lots of food and decorating ideas.

Anti-Valentine's Day Party | MyPaintingShirt.com

 

Not everyone is into the lovey-dovey, ooey-gooey celebration of Valentine’s Day.  You may be single or perhaps in a couple but just don’t like the over the top mush that is Valentine’s Day.  Let’s face it, the restaurants are overcrowded and have limited menus, flowers are crazy expensive, and if you’re single you don’t want to be surrounded by couples making googly eyes at each other all night.  So my solution? Throw an ANTI-Valentine’s Day Party! It doesn’t mean you don’t love love (you can have a date with your special someone anytime), but on Valentine’s Day you can have a lot of fun with ALL your friends, single or not, with an Anti-Valentine’s theme!

MPS005 – Ice Bar Party

Ice Bar Party

When life gives you snow, make an ice bar! I live in an area that gets a lot of snow and around the beginning of March, I start to get the snow crazies.  I’m ready for Spring, but with each new March snowfall I start to get a little bit more twitchy. It was during one of these March snowfalls that I was looking into our backyard at a large snowdrift and thought, “that would make a great bar!”

autumn party and thanksgiving

Podcast Notes:

Autumn, my favorite time of year!  While my favorite Autumnal parties are, of course, Halloween Parties…I do love any event that has a Fall theme.  This year I was lucky enough to have three events with a Fall theme! A company BBQ for 120 people, a family gathering for 20, and a small Thanksgiving for four.
