Whether you’re hosting a celebration or were asked to bring something to a party you’re attending, you’ll love all of the fun and festive recipes we found on Pinterest and pinned to PMall’s “4th of July!” Pinterest Board! As you can see from the American Flag-inspired cake at left, people have been sharing some great red, white and blue ideas – and we just can’t get enough of them!
For those of you don’t want to take on the challenge of the flag cake, be sure to check out our board at the above link – you’ll find tons of easy ways to add some July 4th flare to your food!
We found everything from using cookie cutters to create star-shaped watermelon bites to strategically making fruit kabobs with bananas, strawberries and blueberries so when you fill a platter with them it looks like the American Flag! We even pinned some great drink recipes for kids and adults!
Once you’ve created your red, white and blue snacks or desserts, present them to your family, friends and party guests in the new Patriotic Pride Embroidered Gift Basket at right!
The reusable red liner is artfully embroidered with PMall’s exclusive stars and stripes design and personalized with any family name or message so you can add a personalized touch to your party! If you don’t want to fill it with food, the gift basket can also be used to store all of the party plates, napkins and plastic ware that the guests will be using at the party. If you host the 4th of July party every year, this basket is a must-have! It also makes a great hostess gift for your friends and family, too!
Now that it’s summer, everyone will want to enjoy the nice weather outside so make sure you clean off your lawn chairs, stock up on sunscreen and bug spray and decorate your yard with one of our Personalized Yard Stakes, like the All American Personalized Yard Stake at left. The yard stake will let your guests know where the party is AND act as a great outdoor decoration! Customers love our personalized yard stakes because the design is magnetic and can be taken off the stake and switched out with another design whenever you’d like. Once you’ve purchased the yard stake with your first personalized magnet design for $32.95, you only have to pay $15.95 for any new magnet designs you’d like to personalize! You can switch out the magnet so that your yard stake is always celebrating the current season, holiday, birthday or any other celebration you’d like. The beautiful star pattern featured on the All-American magnet design will look great with all of your other party decorations and your guests will love that you’ve thought to have that July 4th flare outside.
Even though your guests may spend the majority of the time outside on your deck or patio, they’re sure to be coming in and out of your house to use the bathroom or to help bring refrigerated foods outside throughout the celebration. Personalize the Patriotic Flip Flops Doormat so they’re met with 4th of July fun at the door and also to prevent your guests from tracking mud, water, or anything else into your home! The fun flip flop design is so cute you’ll want to leave the doormat out all summer long!
If you like the All American and Patriotic Flip Flop designs that you see here, be sure to check out all of our 4th of July Personalized Gifts - these same designs can be personalized on other gifts plus we have other great gifts you can use at your 4th of July party! You can personalize a blanket to save your spot at your local parade or have one of our party tubs engraved so your guests can drink ice-cold beverages in personalized style. Head over to PMall now to find all your 4th of July party needs!
If you’re planning a wedding, you know how stressful it can be to put the celebration together. There are a million things to do and it’s easy for things to slip through the cracks. Well we’re here to help you in two ways today! First, check out this photo-shopped wedding photo we came across on Pinterest at left. Hilarious, right? Hopefully that made you smile and laugh and you were able to forget about wedding plans – even if it was only for a second .
Now that we’ve helped you de-stress a little bit, we’re here to help you with one of the items on the wedding planning to-do list that is often over looked – the wedding favors!
Our collection of Personalized Candy Bar Wrappers are one of our most popular Wedding Favors, especially the Filigree Wrapper design, which comes in different colors and can be personalized with or without a photo of the bride and groom. You can leave one at every seat or decorate a display table that features a sign saying “Love is sweet, please enjoy a treat!” and have your guests take one as they leave the reception! We love the idea of tying in the “Love is sweet” theme – it’s cute and perfect for all wedding celebrations! The personalized candy bar wrappers will not only add a personal touch to your wedding, your guests will LOVE the treat, especially because they’re sure to be pretty hungry after a night full of fun and dancing at your wedding! If you’re a big fan of the candy idea but don’t want to limit yourself to just chocolate bars, create a sweet table and personalize the Elegant Monogram Custom Favor Boxes that your guests can fill up with an assortment of goodies!
If you’re looking for a favor that isn’t edible but is a gift that everyone can use, you may be interested in our Personalized Candle Tin Favors - especially the Wedding Monogram design which has become a favorite among PMall fans. They’re the perfect size for people to use when they’re traveling or at home and they’ll be able to think of you and how much fun they had at the wedding every time they use it! Plus, since you can pick out a design to match your wedding colors, you’ll be adding a personal touch to the centerpieces or tables at your reception that could otherwise seem stale.
Brides and grooms who are looking for a wedding favor that will really leave an impression on their guests will LOVE some of our unique wedding favor gifts. Whether you or your future spouse are musicians or just love listening to music, our Personalized Guitar Picks are always a big hit! You can pick a design that lets you upload your favorite photo and a personalized message, or pick a simple design that will feature your own special words on either side! They come in all sorts of colors and fonts so you can customize the guitar picks exactly to your liking. Have your wedding band toss them out to the crowd while they’re preforming or leave them spread out as confetti to decorate the tables at your reception. It won’t matter how you display them – all of your family and friends will love the unique touch and will be talking about them for years to come!

Now that it’s wedding season, all of you maids-of-honor and bridesmaids should get started on planning your bride’s bachelorette party. We know you want to make sure that your friend or sister has the best, last night out as a single girl – that’s why we’re here to help with some fun ways to personalize her bachelorette party, making her last night out, her best night out … ever!
No party is complete without a fun dessert, which is why we had to share this photo of high heels cookies that we found on Pinterest! Aren’t they fun!? We love how each cookie has it’s own colorful design, but you don’t need to go to that extreme if you plan on making a cute, girly-themed dessert for your party. You can save time and money by decorating each of the high heels in the same color and style or you can create other styles of cookies, such as lipstick bottles, lingerie, martini glasses, etc. that fit the girly theme just as well as the cute pumps, too!
If you like the high heels cookies as much as we do, you’ll love PMall’s Wild Side Personalized Bachelorette Party Invitations! The invitations feature a fun & flirty zebra-striped shoe design that will get all of the girls excited and pumped out for the night of fun! They are sold in sets of 24 and can be custom personalized with all of your party info – you barely have to lift a finger (except for typing )! Once you get the invitations personalized and sent out you’ll be ready for the next step – bachelorette party games!
There are a ton of bachelorette party games out there that people like to use, but our favorite has to be the bachelorette party truth or dare!
We like to make our own Truth or Dare topics because the game will be much more fun when you tailor it to the taste and personalities of the bride and her guests. Plus, when you personalize your own truth or dare questions, you can make sure that they’ll fit with all of your party plans, such as location, time, and the activiities you have planned for the night.
All you have to do is write down 10-20 (or more depending on how many guests will be attending the party) dares and truth questions and put each of them in envelopes that are labeled so you’ll know which one to hand out when the time comes. Make sure to seal the envelopes with the Bachelorette Personalized Party Stickers so no one can peek! These fun stickers help add a personal touch to the game that the bride will really appreciate. She may have been to several bachelorette parties where they’ve plaid a similar game, but when she sees her name on the cute stickers she’ll be truly touched that you spent the extra time and effort to make it special. Have each girl continue to pick a card and answer a truth question, such as, “Who was the first boy you kissed?” or complete a dare, such as “Dance with the first guy you see at the bar!” Once they have successfully completed their task, hand them a sticker to wear for the rest of the night! It’ll show that they’re part of the fun party and that they’ve already participated in the fun!
Everyone will notice when your group of girls enters the room once you’re all wearing the fun, pink stickers, but don’t forget to make the bride stand out! Personalize the Bachelorette Bash Satin Sash to say “Bachelorette (her name here),” “Future Mrs. (groom’s last name here)” or anything you’d like! You can have it personalized in one of 10 colors – we think pink or purple look great, but you can also select a color that matches her wedding colors for that extra special touch! Make sure the bride keeps her sash on the whole night, that way everyone around you will know to congratulate her throughout the night – and she may even get a free drink or two out of it!
It’s adding little personal touches like these that will make her last night out, one of the best of her life. She’ll know that you spent the extra time to make it special for her and she’ll never forget it!
So head on over to PMall.com now to get started on planning and have a great night out with the girls!
