As we all look forward to 2021, it’s exciting to safely plan moments to mark special occasions. Add in a bit of creativity and you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
Celebrated is passionate about making celebrations vibrant, creative, and fun. The crew is full of imagination and spark which are evident in their curated boxes. No occasion is too big or too small for this bunch. They’re a helping hand throughout the year that you can turn to for supplies and advice. Best of all, most items are disposable which is great for our current times (and fewer dishes to wash!).
The founders of Celebrated, Jessi Means and Lindsey Kauffman, are mom entrepreneurs that know a thing or two about crafting perfect moments. Here are four of their tips on planning festive and colorful celebrations no matter how or where you celebrate.
Extend the Valentine’s and spring holidays so it’s more than just one day.
Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Mother’s Day are perfect for a seasonal theme that you can carry out for the given month. Decorate your home and table around these special times. Get your kids involved and transform your house into a festive environment that will bring joy to everyone.
Load up on activities and spread them out over several days.
Check out Celebrated for new crafts and fun things that will keep everyone happy, smiling, and occupied. Send special care packages to friends and family. Start with a themed box from Celebrated, then customize it with your own flair.
Celebrate your kids birthdays in an “over the top” way at home.
Go BIG on decorations. Superheroes, unicorns, mermaids, happy campers – you name it, there’s a favorite theme for all of your child’s interests. Balloons, garland, signage all add to the festivities. Plan a virtual or driveway party. Celebrate via Zoom or outdoors with just as much activity and fun. Send favors and activities to guests ahead of time. You can share an activity card, for example, with all participants to enjoy together and include themed favors as a thank you gift.
Surprise friends and family with driveway drops to celebrate special events.
Balloon garlands create a huge impact and you can customize them with more than 35 colors to choose from (and be Instagram-ready!). Plus, they last for several days. Bring the party to them with balloon signage and get the virtual fiesta started! Don’t forget to coordinate food and dessert with selected plates and utensils that follow the theme (i.e. Fiesta, Game On, Mimosas, Donut Grow Up). Make it a drop off to remember!
Reward yourself with a Zoom night with friends.
Celebrated has beer tasting and wine tasting kits that are incredibly fun to do virtually with friends. Or make it glam with a Hollywood theme and have everyone tune in to a favorite movie or TV show.
About Celebrated: Co-founders Jessi and Lindsey were two working moms with families and corporate careers. They loved creating memories, and with young families and friends, those memorable events came fast and often. Celebrated was born out of a need to solve event-organizing dilemmas. They knew there had to be a better way to plan events that didn’t leave them feeling frazzled and exhausted. Follow them on Instagram @shopcelebrated for your one-stop-shopping party accessories.
