pinterest party anyone?

Hello, hello, hello! This week's Scrap Gals Podcast is all about having a crafty party aka a Pinterest party. I thought it would be fun to do a round up of my favorite Pinterest party ideas here on my blog. I really would like to do something like this or at least be invited to one!! :)

In the show, I talked about making cute invitations for your party. I think I would make something that had a chalkboard look to it with hand lettering but here's a really cute Pinterest themed invitation and the blogger sells a download to this invite for $15 so you can make it your own!

My perfect Pinterest party would include:

  • great food (with recipes)
  • fun and easy crafts
  • everyone looking cute so we can take a picture
  • a printed picture for everyone to take home
  • happy music

Of course I have one bajillion appetizer and dessert recipes pinned on my "Yummy Food" board. Here's a favorite...
Grape Salad

You'll think you've died and gone to Heaven when eating that!

One of my favorite crafts to do would be paint something ceramic with a Sharpie and bake it on, like this:

If you really want to see a lot of good Sharpie projects, click here for a long page of them!

I really like how this group took a picture and I think it would very cute to all dress to match and then print a picture for your friends before they leave! I saw another picture where everyone wore black and white and it was a cute crowd. 

I guess if you didn't have a photo printer at home, you could text your friends the picture.

In this week's show we also talked about having a craft night and including a variety of crafters. I think that is an idea that will grow more popular as crafting continues to grow in popularity. I love it and I absolutely love to see other people making stuff!!!!

I think a fun idea that we didn't discuss in the show, would be to have each crafter at the party do a little make and take or take turns each month having one make and take. I could have everyone make a card and someone else might have a tiny cross stitch project for us to make. You could be exposed to a lot of different crafts that way and may find one you love!

Here's a fun article from the Etsy blog that has some good ideas for throwing your own craft party! So how about you? Have you gone to a craft night or a Pinterest party or are you interested in having one? If the answer's yes, please invite me. :) I want to go and be crafty!!
