My daughter turns 3 years old on the 16th. I can hardly believe it!
To celebrate, we are having a playgroup the day before her birthday, and a tea party birthday on her actual birthday.
She’s excited, I’m excited, everyone’s excited.
I’ve been spending the last month or so browsing for inspiration on Pinterest and creating a board with possible food, decoration, and activty ideas for both the play group and the birthday party itself.
If you’re new to Pinterest, you might want to check out my tutorial for Pinterest Beginners.
Pinterest takes the idea of an inspiration board and makes it digital. Members of the site can pin their favorite pictures, websites and blog posts and then categorize them and share them for others tons see, and possibly pin.
Pinterest is a virtual playground of ideas.
You can follow your friends and see the things they are pinning, or you can check out all of the pins on the site by topic. Either way, inspiration is everywhere. You can surf through pins, or use the search function to find just what you’re looking for..
Want to take a peek at the ideas that I am toying with for my parties?
Here’s my Tea Party pin board:

I’ve made this tea party pinboard to help me come up with fun ways to decorate, fun foods to serve, and fun activies for the kids.
Here are some of my favorites:

I’ve been scouring Goodwill and Dollar Tree stores to recreate things I see without going broke, and I love it!
How do you get inspired for party planning?
I’d love to hear!
