Let's get this party started! With a red die - cut graphic and white page you can run through the printer, tie it together with the grosgrain ribbon and it is party time. Comes in a pack of 10 from Kate's Paperie.

The blue streak-- Bodum's new Fyrcat Picnic Grill comes in some electric shades.

Or maybe you prefer Lilly Pulitzer Party pom poms also from Lifeguard Press.

I love these stylish Blue Dragon tin plates from Mottahedeh. Just like the porcelain version they do!

I have always found Caspari to be a reliable source for great paper napkins and plates in fun patterns. I have been waiting for the right time to show these and the time is now! This season, they up the ante with new Paule Marrot and Dabney Lee Collections. Fantastic.

A selection from both bold new collections, some are daring and bold, others, soft and sweet.

DABNEY LEE the preppy paper girl from Brooklyn channels her inner Sister Parish/Lilly Pulitzer/Babe Paley gene for her fun new summer designs with Caspari:

Turquoise Seahorse paper napkin

Coral Seahorse paper napkin

Greek Key Moderne paper napkin in coral and pink

Greek Key Moderne paper plate in red

Goldfish paper napkin in coral

Goldfish paper napkin in green

Goldfish paper plate in natural

PAULE MARROT I have a thing for anything that reminds me of the lively and fresh floral prints I grew up with. Loving the huge Marrot renasissance, I was thrilled to see Caspari doing the French artist's designs on their paper entertaining stuff.

Throw your stuff in Jack and Lulu's Whistle Bag, with a whistle attached to the canvas, the kids will listen up and pay attention when you tell them it is time for watermelon!

My 12 year old granddaughter used the Lilly Pulitzer pom poms to decorate for her birthday party. She printed out the invitations on the computer with Lilly prints for the border. Happy colors!sup
