For today’s Resourceful Wednesday post, we gathered a whole bunch of party planning ideas and inspiration from one of our favorite party planning resources, Minted.com. When it comes to planning the perfect party, Minted has you covered. From Baby to bridal showers; from first birthday parties to bar/bat mitzvahs, Quinceañeras, and sweet sixteens. We especially love that Minted has SO many products that can be personalized with photos! My friend told me that her personalised Styrofoam Cups for her baby shower were one of the highlights.

PERFECTION!

We’ve put together a botanical baby shower, a ferociously fun birthday, a classy quinceañera, and a sophisticated sweet sixteen bash to get your party plannin’ wheels turnin’! Items marked as “personalizable” can be custom made with almost any message to fabulously fit your fête!

Classy Quinceañera

Party Planning Ideas and Inspiration for a Quinceanera

Okay, seriously, we are CRAZY over the scalloped and hole-punched edges of this quinceañera invitation and the coordinating (and personalizable!) table number signs. And the hand-painted design element of these paper goods is just gorgeous. We think the gold glitter garlands add that necessary “bling” that any young girl celebrating an important right of passage would just adore for her special party! Also, we think the personalizable photo backdrops from Minted are pretty much genius.

Lastly, a friend was recently telling me about the fantastic Callebaut chocolate they bought for their chocolate fountain. They tell me it was also perfect for a lot of baking they used it for and the quality is great, from what I hear.
