Since we dedicated yesterday’s blog to an all white Labor Day party, we’re coming back today with a more colorful party idea for Labor Day weekend (also known as LBW)! Did you know Labor Day (along with Memorial Day and 4th of July) is also synonymous with red, white, and blue?
Today, we’re going to share with everyone more red, white, and blue party ideas for Labor Day. Don’t forget to check out our 4th of July posts earlier in the summer as well for even more RWB party ideas!

We’ve been a fan of tea parties since we were young. This may have a little something to do with watching Alice in Wonderland on repeat, but who knows! Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to host a tea party in the outdoors with all the flowers in bloom.
Since we still have a month left of summer, we’re going to share some of our favorite tea party ideas to inspire you to have your own before fall begins. Get ready for whimsy and pretty overload!

We came across a lot of cute ideas this summer while we were blogging and Pinterest-ing (check out our Pinterest for holiday ideas year round!), and one idea that caught our eye time and time again is a fun treat that we personally like to call a teddy beach party in a cup!
We know what you all are wondering: “Beach teddy?!” Isn’t it beach bunny??” Well, these treats are made with yummy teddy crackers and gummies, made to look like they’re lounging on a beach! Keep reading to get inspired to make your own before the end of summer!

Ingredients & Supplies (inspired by images above!)
- blue jello mix + water
- whipped cream
- graham crackers crumbs
- plastic clear cup
- teddy bear crackers or gummy bears
- peppermint swirl candies
- candy roll up
- gummy rings
- paper umbrella
Prepare the blue jello mix as instructed on the box. Let mixture cool slightly before filling into 2/3 of the clear cup. Refrigerate until solid. Put a dollop of whipped cream on top, and sprinkle on a thick layer of graham cracker crumbs to one side for the beach scene.
Here comes the fun part–decorating the beach scene! Here are some ideas to try:
- Put a teddy in a gummy ring for a floating teddy in the water
- Use an inch of candy roll up for a teddy lounging on the beach under an umbrella
- Peppermint swirl candies make perfect beach balls for playful beach teddies
The teddy beach party in a cup is perfect for end of summer parties by the beach and pool, or just a beach themed party anytime of the year! Prepare the cup ahead of time and let your guests decorate their own beach teddy scene. If you make some, share with us your creations below!

We love our themed posts, especially for back to school because they’re reminiscent of our younger days (check out our previous post on Pencil Themed Back to School Snack Ideas)! One theme we couldn’t wait to blog about for BTS is apples. It used to be tradition to bring an apple on the first day of school for the teacher. That soon evolved to other back to school gifts, but apples always made an appearance in the classroom.
In today’s post, we’re going to bring back the BTS apple idea, but with a twist! Instead of real apples, we’re going to share some fun apple themed food ideas for back to school, perfect for students and teachers!

We know this summer we’ve been all about the bright colors (flashback to: Lemon Themed Summer Party & Home Decor, Summer Neon Trend – Home, Fashion, and Party Ideas, and Rainbow Party Decor Ideas for Summer just to name a few)! But if bright colors aren’t your cup of tea, don’t fret! Today’s post is just for you!

So with no further ado, we’re sharing our favorite pastel party decor ideas for inspiration today!
