Hello Summer!

Summer is just around the corner!  Summer is a great time to gather with friends and family for cocktails, BBQ’s, Fourth of July and much more.  We’ve put together some great ways to entertain this summer with ideas to get your party started!

 

Boat Party

Whether you own a boat or rent a boat, invite friends aboard for a day of summer fun.  You can keep it casual with lighter fare and portable drinks while you enjoy a day on the water.  You can bring sandwiches from your favorite deli and a cooler for your drinks.  You can always find an island or marina to enjoy an offshore picnic or visit a restaurant as well.  Just don’t forget to pack sunscreen!  Use a personalized tote to keep all your boating gear in (which also comes in handy for farmers markets and pool/beach days!).


Cocktails on the Patio

Spend a beautiful summer evening on the patio with friends.  You can serve cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while you chat under the stars (we found some great hors d’oeuvres recipes to get you started).  Set the tone with string lights, candles and music.  You can serve beverages in shatterproof drinkware to keep entertaining stress-free (here are some great cocktail recipes to try). For personalized napkins, cups, plates, trays, cutting boards and more, shop our Summer Entertaining Supplies boutique.


Ice Cream Social

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned ice cream social. You can easily put one together for young and old alike.  This would be a great way to have a fun Sunday {or SUNDAE!} afternoon with neighbors.  So easy to have either in your garage, on your patio or even your front driveway.  Have guests come and make their own sundaes to enjoy on a hot summer day.  Make sure to include all the toppings like nuts, candies, cherries, whipped cream and sprinkles.


Fourth of July

Nothing says SUMMER like the Fourth of July.  A time to celebrate our independence and enjoy time with family and friends.  You can plan a fun dinner and the entertainment is already set if you plan to watch the fireworks.  Plan a whole theme of red, white and blue from outfits to food to drinks.  You can also plan to see a local parade!

I hope these ideas help you with making fun summer memories!

All About: Personalized Stadium Cups

Personalized Stadium Cups

Personalized Stadium Cups

Personalized Stadium cups are a fun choice for any celebration.  They are a heavier weight cup that also serves as a take home gift for your guests.  Personalized stadium cups are perfect for BBQ’s, sporting events, milestone birthdays, pool parties, tailgating and more.  They are available in over 20 colors and 4 sizes and are offered in 12 oz., 16 oz., 22 oz., and 32 oz. These quality cups are BPA free, reusable and are made and printed in the USA. Our stadium cups are recyclable (#5 polypropylene).

“Ordering the 16oz stadium cup for a graduation party was so easy! I loved how I could see every change so quickly on the website. They look great and can’t wait to use them!” ~ Tina D.


“Purchased these cups as favors for my niece’s graduation party from nursing school. I love the idea of giving these to guests because it’s something they can use over and over. The quality and shipping exceeded my expectations. I would definitely utilize this company’s services again.” ~ Tanyeka H.


“I love the cups I ordered for my daughter’s engagement shower. Fairly priced and they look awesome.” ~ Jennifer F.

What size cups should I order?

The most popular sizes are 12 oz and 16 oz as they are the perfect size for the most often poured beverages including sodas, iced tea, lemonade, beer, mixed drinks, lemonade, sangria, bloody Marys and also shakes and slushies. These sizes also hold candies and other smaller items so they are also a perfect container for a party favor.

The 22 oz and 32 oz Stadium cups are a very generous size and would make a for a great container for very large pours of drinks over ice like iced tea, sodas, and lemonade or large-volume treats like popcorn or caramel corn. The 22 oz Stadium Cups and 32 oz. Stadium cups are also a great idea to use for a favor cup filled with treats, souvenirs and items you want to provide for a take home gift. Not only would the items inside the cup be enjoyed, the cup itself would be enjoyed again and again as personalized stadium cups are washable and reusable.

How many cups should I order?

This can depend on how you will be serving your beverages.  If you set-up a self-serve beverage station, your guests may place their drink somewhere and forget where they left it.  Keeping this in mind, it’s wise to plan on 1-2 cups per person to be safe.  Seeing that stadium cups also serve as a take-home gift, many people will hang on to their special cup to bring home.

We hope this is helpful in planning your next party!

Personalized Plastic Frosted Flex Cups

Personalized Frosted Plastic Flex Cups

Personalized frosted plastic flex cups are flexible, shatterproof, reusable, and are the perfect solution to easy entertaining. These cups are top-rack dishwasher safe, are recyclable (#5-polypropylene), BPA Free, made & printed in the USA.

There is a cup size perfect for every beverage you are offering. They come in 5 oz., 9 oz., 12 oz., 14 oz., 16 oz., and 20 oz. sizes. They are ideal for wedding bars, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and baby showers for punch and drinks, birthday parties, graduations, holiday events, home bars and more.  They’re popular for weddings because they keep broken glass off the dance floor!  They’re also ideal for outdoor entertaining so there’s no broken glass on your patio or near a pool.

Some other great uses?  They are fun to use at a dessert table for ice cream sundaes or at a dessert bar.  Beyond dessert tables, these also make great cups for fresh-cut flowers, favors and appetizers.  We’ve seen our customers use our cups for almost everything!

“Durable, lightweight cup that holds its shape well; perfect. Design print was exact, proportions correct and print seems durable; holds up the ‘fingernail scratch test’ after two washes. They’re disposable cups, but capable of multi use for those that don’t disappear. I have only been washing them on top rack.” ~ Travis

“The cups I ordered were exactly as described and the customer service was excellent! I ordered reusable cups for a party so I could use them for future parties, and guests liked the cups so much, they wanted to take them home and several did!” ~ Marilyn 

How many cups should I order?

This can depend on how you will be serving your beverages.  If you set-up a self-serve beverage station, your guests may place their drink somewhere and forget where they left it.  Keeping this in mind, it’s wise to plan on 2-3 cups per person to be safe.  Even if you are handing out your drinks, it’s best to order more than you think you may need to be safe.  If you have leftover cups, why not use them when in a pinch?  Or you can use them to start your garden early indoors with a fun view of your plants growing!

What size should I order?

To help you plan for parties, we’ve put together this helpful chart to show you how many ounces fill one cup.  Keep in mind, it shows cups filled to the brim for reference only. Plan accordingly!

We hope this is helpful in planning your next party!
