Tweens are a notoriously tough age to please. If you’re in need of a little party inspiration, check out our tween birthday ideas for a guaranteed good time!
An art inspired party is the perfect way to celebrate the Picasso in your life. Think colorfully for the decor— blow up balloons in red, yellow, orange, green, and blue; tape them in a cluster to the ceiling above the cake table. Add a little artistic flair to your snack table with “paint chips” and rice crispy paintbrushes. Use a popsicle stick as the handle, then dip the first half of the treat into melted white chocolate dyed with different food coloring. Serve up a cake in the shape of an artist’s palette, or if cupcakes are more your style, buy a real artist palette and paintbrush. Frost cupcakes in red, orange, yellow, green, and blue, and arrange them on the palette to create art you can eat! Give the artist in your life the palette and brush as an after party gift. Set each guest’s artist station with a smock (save some money and create them out of old t-shirts and ribbon), canvas, paint brushes, and paint. Hire an artist to come in and teach a class, or let their imaginations run wild. Make sure you have empty gift bags ready to go so your guests can take home their new supplies.
Movie Night Slumber Party
Does your tween fancy themselves the next Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorcese? Maybe more of a Johnny Depp or Julia Roberts? Make a movie night to remember with all the biggest stars! Send invitations on ticket stubs encouraging guests to bring their favorite pillow and blanket. If weather and space permit, set up a projector for a movie night under the stars. Opting for a cozier night in? Arrange your couches and chairs for the optimal viewing party. Play movie classics, like The Wizard of Oz, or go with timeless summer blockbusters, like Jurassic Park. For decorations, set up a faux concession stand complete with hot dogs, popcorn, and candy favorites, like Junior Mints and Red Vines. Make a bucket of popcorn shaped cake with birthday cake flavored popcorn spilling out of the top. To really set the scene, decorate with faux film strips and ticket stubs. If a store nearby has a dollar bin of movies, grab a few to tie together with the boxed candy as favors for more fun later Read more –>

“The Finishers” and “We are #JasperStrong” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!
This past weekend, friends gathered to participate in the Griffith Park Relay Marathon in Los Angeles, California. Some were first-time runners and some were experienced runners, but all ran in dedication to those who have lost their battle against cancer and all finished the race strong in their Hanes Cool Dri Performance Shirts!
When this customer’s 10-year-old cousin, Jasper, was diagnosed with Leukemia this year, she knew she wanted custom #JasperStrong t-shirts to not only support him, but to spread awareness about the wonderful boy Jasper is. Most recently, Jasper’s family showed off their shirts on a trip to the beach.
