Hello from your new CPP Hostess

Hi Everyone,
Let me introduce myself…!!! I am the new Owner/ Hostess of Creative Party Place and I am so thrilled to become YOUR new PARTY   HOSTESS…!!! My name is Dianne Wood / aka The Sugar Diva and my personal blog is HAPPY HOME
You can visit me there to see MY STYLE and also see our fun PARTY PRODUCTS that will add the PERFECT TOUCH to all the wonderful party themes that I will be sharing with you. In my family, I was always the “go to girl” when it came to planning parties, weddings and family get togethers. I must have heard it hundreds of times, “You just go overborad” …OR..”It doesn’t have to be Perfect”….OR…you just do TOO MUCH..!!!  Of course that’s what everyone EXPECTED of me and is why they always called on me to get the job done. I must admit though, I LOVE IT and it’s what I do best.  My biggest and proudest accomplishment is the Gourmet Party and Paper Product Line that I have designed and sell to stores and shops across America.  Here are just a few of our fun products.

FIRST…..are the NEW PAPER STRAWS that I designed and am having produced just for us. We are “OVER THE MOON” excited over these. I have designed the FIRST ORIGINAL…..POLKA DOT PAPER STRAWS…!!! We also have some really pretty STRIPES.  You can Mix Them UP for a fun and festive party theme.  NOW…the straws in the pictures are actually “mock up” samples since our first shipment won’t arrive until November 1st.

Also new are our pretty designer Party Favor Treat Bags….perfect for filling with candy, cookies, popcorn and party loot or surprises. Watch for more designs coming REAL SOON..!!! Our fun bags will add the perfect touch to any party theme. A great way to say Thanks.!!! Use them at weddings, baby showers, birthday parties or any other special events.

And what’s a party without Balloons….Our CUTE and FUN POLKA DOT BALLOONS…..Add a POP of COLOR to your next party or event with our Big Dot Polka Dot Balloons…:)

OK…..Enough about ME…!!!     When Shannon returns next week  from “House Hunting” in Alaska, she will SHOW ME HOW to start posting YOUR PARTIES. I’m new to Word Press, so it may take me a while to learn my way around.

I look forward to getting to know each of YOU and hope you will continue to VISIT ME here at YOUR CREATIVE PARTY PLACE…:)    Please comment in to say “Hello”….!!!
Dianne ….. Creative Party Hostess

Drumroll please……

Hey Everyone.  Well…it’s done.  There is officially a new hostess taking over here at CPP.  Her name is Dianne Wood.  She is quite the ‘party girl’ herself.  She has a few other sites you may have visited…..

I’m really excited to be handing the site over to her.  She is passionate about parties and she is ready to inspire you by sharing more ideas from all of YOU party girls out there as well as her own.  She also has lots of fabulous products to show you that are sure to be a hit at your next event.

It’s been a fun ride for the last year and a half.  YOU have all inspired me so much.  I’ve been amazed at the talent and creativity out there.  And the fact that many of you are even MORE party crazy than me has made me feel, well….not so crazy! LOL! 

Because of everything going on in my life it is in a way a relief to hand this over to someone else.  But, it is bittersweet.  This was my baby and I created it from scratch.  It”s a bit sad to let it go, but I fully trust Dianne to take care of it and help it grow and blossom into something even better.  

I hope you will welcome her with open arms.

Blessings to you all….


Moving forward….

Thank you for your interest in the site.
I have chosen the person who will be taking over the site and she has been notified.

It will be announced soon once all the details are finalized.  I hope you will all continue to frequent the site and support her.

Sweet Strawberry Party

This Sweet Strawberry Birthday Party was originally hosted by Glory over at Glorious Treats.  Glory listed her party on the Parties 4 Girls page.

Check it out…..

This weekend I added some sweet details to my niece’s 9th birthday party.  I got to be in charge of the things I love best, the sweets and the favors!  I set up this little dessert table to display the treats together.
Forever inspired by Amy Atlas and my good friend Sharnel, I always start planning a party with lots of grand ideas.  But somewhere along the way, a pesky little thing called a “budget” often gets in my way!
For this party, I used dishes, linens and ribbon that I already had on hand, and kept the entire cost of the sweets and favors (for 8 girls) under $40.00
The mommies got a little favor too, a basket of fresh strawberries (picked by my sister and myself).  Even the strawberries got dressed up with ribbon!
Total cost for sweets and favors for a party of 8 = $38.08
Want to see the breakdown of the cost and more pictures?  Visit Glory’s original party post over at Glorious Treats.

Bug Themed Birthday Party

This Bugged Out Bug Themed Birthday Party was listed by Pink Peppermint Paper.


Pink Peppermint Parties has been all abuzz over the details for Lauren’s son’s 2nd birthday. No flies on us, for sure. For those of you who don’t remember or weren’t following me very early on, this is the adorable party she worked up for his 1st birthday.

This year’s theme was Bugs, and the challenge was to make it a party any boy would be proud of but also keep it sweet for a birthday boy still knee high to a grasshopper. We set the mood with this invitation design.

The munched edges turned out to be one of my favorite little details! Lauren even munched the flap on the envelope. Love it.

The adults enjoyed their drinks from these adorable homemade bug jars.

There is SOOOO much more BUGGY stuff to see over on the orginal party post.  So hop on over to Pink Peppermint Paper to check it out!  Thanks for listing your party on the Parties for Boys page Eleanor!

Baby Gender Reveal Party

I think these new gender reveal parties are such a fun idea!  Check out this one with the theme “A Little Birdie told Me” which was listed by Beth Beattie.

Inspired by the familiar saying, “A little birdie told me,” we added “It’s a ?” to the invite for the recent baby reveal theme. A green and pink gender neutral custom invite was created. Once we found out it was a girl, we designed the pink and natural bird tablescape with letters to spell G-I-R-L from Anthropologie, bird decor and cages from Michael’s. Moss and rattan chargers, rented from Panache Party Rental added to the natural texture of the table. The invite was turned into a placecard design and attached to the bird nests with pink Jordan Almonds as eggs and bird feeders. The Nest Egg Scented Soap was the party favor for the ladies. Opi “It’s a girl” nail polish was given to the girls who guessed it is a girl. Cupcakes with toasted coconut to look like a nest with pink birdies were made by Southern Belle’s Cakery.

Mad Scientist Birthday Party

Following Phubie listed her Mad Science Birthday Party.  Check it out….

Caitlyn became fascinated with science when she started kindergarten, and it was her idea to have a “Mad Science” party for her sixth birthday. These custom designed invitations from Melanie Crownover at ewe hooo, provided a lot of ideas and inspiration, from the color of the decorations to the design of the cake.

To help set the scene, there were mason jars filled with radioactive rods (i.e., glow sticks), real laboratory beakers containing Potion No. 6 test tube favors, and essential books in every mad scientist’s library.

Inspired by the invitation, Loan, a full-time pharamacist and part-time “Ace of Cakes”, created this phenomenal 2 tier red velvet cake. We loved all of the clever details that went into the cake, from the bubbling flask, mortar and pestle, book of potions, and spilling test tube, down to the lab rats pleading for help.

Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from Happy Eatery were topped with my handmade toppers and displayed on the custom cupcake stand.

Our gummy worm and brain cultures grew in Jello petri dishes overnight in the refrigerator.
