Do you feel lucky? You should because I found loads of treasure on Etsy to help you throw a smashing St. Patrick’s Day party!

I love the “Go Green” tags…so clever! In fact, I think a “Go Green” themed St. Patrick’s Day party would be adorable. Someone get on that and send me pictures! Happy March!

Conversations Hearts Party {Etsy Finds}

You are going to die when you see this party and then you are going to die when you hear how easy it is going to be for you to plan one yourself but first the pictures…

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “I want to plan a party exactly like that.” Well guess what? You can throw your very own Conversation Hearts party because the printables are for sale at the Green Apple Paperie shop on Etsy for $10! Now that is a deal and look at what all you get!
So get to planning and invite me! 😉

Hostess Gifts {Etsy Finds}

I am always hard pressed for an answer when asked for ideas for hostess gifts. It depends on the party, the hostesses and your own personality but otherwise can be a pretty generic gift in my opinion. I always try to look for something that I personally would enjoy receiving. With that in mind, here are a few ideas I found on Etsy. The great thing about Etsy is you can purchase as many as you need and some items can be custom made for you as well. With all the love I give to Etsy you would think I’m being paid to do so. I assure you I am not, I just have a slight obsession with adorable things and Etsy delivers when it comes to adorable! So without further ado, if I were hosting this holiday season, I know I’d love to receive any of these wonderful gifts!

If you’re having an autumn shower or party, these little cozies would be a darling gift. There are a few different styles and they come in many different colors too! You can also have them custom made depending on your hostesses’ personalities! Love it!
When I first saw this I thought it was food. It looks THAT good right? It’s a Pumpkin Spice Latte Foaming Sugar Scrub. Also a great autumn hostess gift and probably not something you would normally find in stores. After working hard to plan a party for you, the first thing your hostess needs is a nice long bath don’t you think? This seller has many other soaps and scrubs you can purchase as well.



This is Sweet Pumpkin Pie goats milk soap. I love these because they come pre-packaged in that darling box you see in the picture. These are great gifts because they’d be perfect for your hostesses’ kitchen or bathroom sinks!

If you’ve never had mulled cider you’re missing out! These Organic Mulling Spices make it SO EASY for your hostess to add to hot cider or wine for a party or for her family during the holidays AND $9 gets you 3 bags so they are super affordable if you have a lot of hostesses!

Halloween Glam Party by Tom Kat Studio

It’s October and time to start thinking about Halloween parties! Trust me, if you start now you might just finish in time for Halloween. 😉
I plan to showcase several Halloween parties this month by event designers around the web. If you haven’t seen the one I am showcasing today you are in for a (trick or) treat! Kim at Tom Kat Studio designed this gorgeous Halloween table and the best part is she sells the printables at her Etsy store so you too can have the cutest Halloween party ever!

I LOVE that big flower! It fits into her color scheme perfectly and adds such a unique touch. The flower is from Banner Botique on Etsy!
Here’s a close-up view of the cupcake topper printables available at Kim’s Etsy shop.
The whole spread! I love the colors she used. So non-traditional and spunky!
The invitations are also available as part of the printable collection. They are blank but she will customize them for you for an additional cost.
The purple tree was actually part of Kim’s inspiration for the whole project. Kim says,” My inspiration came from the purple glitter trees and a plaque that I found at HomeGoods. I wanted to put a glam, glittery, sophisticated spin on a Halloween party.”
The Chocolate Covered Oreos were made by Kim of Sweeties.
She bought the poms from Pom Love but here’s a tutorial if you want to make them yourself!
I’m not a huge fan of spiders (I mean who is right?) but she sure did make them look adorable. Never thought I’d be calling a spider “adorable”.
They found the spider web pumpkin at Hobby Lobby.
