Party Picks: Tangerine

Good morning and Happy Monday!

Last week, I was unexpectedly quiet on the blog…work projects and regular ol’ life stuff filled up the time.  But, that’s all squared away – for now – and I’m back with a new party picks board for all of you who are tossing around ideas for little shindigs here and there.

It’s been seriously warm lately and the weather has me in a citrus-y frame of mind.  Pair that with this year’s Pantone color of the year and I’m all for some tangerine tango love!  So here’s a rather large board of pickin’s…from do it yourself fun times to bits that you can pick up on the net.

Fun n’ Flirty…Confetti!

With the arrival of Spring, I find myself wanting to shuck off the darks and embrace the amazing world of color!  And, what better way to celebrate color than through confetti!

There are a slew of options as far as party bits go when entertaining the idea of throwing a confetti-centric party, but here are just a few of my favorites that I’ve found through the web…
