Outdoor Party Themes for the Upcoming Spring

Spring is right around the corner, and it’s never too early to get going on party-planning season. The first major thaw brings about numerous opportunities for outdoor themed parties, and at Simply Wrappers, we’re here to help.

Our custom cupcake liners are the perfect accent to a spring-themed outdoor party. We can match up with any event – let’s look at a few popular or interesting party theme ideas for the springtime when the weather starts to get nice.

Graduation

These are still a couple months off in most cases, but it’s never too early to get planning. Whether it’s high school, college or even a middle school commencement, few party styles are more synonymous with an outdoor barbeque and a nice, healthy crowd.

You want to go big at a graduation. Lots of finger food is good for all the guests, and the meat of choice for the graduate of course. Cupcakes adorned with Simply Wrappers special cupcake liners in the school colors are only appropriate.

TV-Themed

Spring also brings about the restart of several of the day’s most popular television shows, so if you and your friends are into such things, it can be a great way to kick off the season. Maybe everyone has to show up in their best Game of Thrones garb, or perhaps everyone picks their favorite character and brings a party favor in their honor.

Breakfast for Dinner

The perfect alternative style for a sunset themed party. Use eggs and toast as appetizers, and include cocktails like the mimosa or Bloody Mary if guests are so inclined. For a little topper, revert back to the traditional style with some cupcakes.

Vegan Party

If you and your guests are of a healthier persuasion, why not celebrate it? A vegan or vegetarian party offers opportunities to get creative with fresh takes on traditional party specials, plus keeps things healthier than the standard get-together. And of course, for healthier cupcakes on the menu, the liners at Simply Wrappers don’t discriminate.

The Subconscious Effects of Party Color Scheme

If you’ve shopped with us at Simply Wrappers before, you’ll know how our products can set off the feeling and mood of a party. Our unmatched color section for our custom cupcake liners leaves you dozens of options for setting the tone of your party and showing your guests what they’re in for.

Did you know, though, that the color scheme you use in a party can have even deeper meaning? People are subconsciously affected by color patterns all the time, and there’s a reason some of the top planners out there are paid huge sums of money to get these kinds of details right in a corporate setting. Let’s look at a few of the effects color scheme can have on people in a party setting, and the benefits these may hold for you.

Psychological Effects

Colors and color combinations create feelings in people, both above and below the surface. This could mean the color of anything at a given party: Lights, flowers, furniture, linens…and cupcakes or other foods. It’s all part of the scheme.

Take the color blue, for instance. Blue is the color of water and the sky, and as such, many people find it calming and soothing. It can lower heart rates and slow respiration, and can have a real effect on the way people think about or perceive things they see or hear.

Decision Making

In turn, this can affect decision making in many people. Subconscious messages are sent through various color schemes, and they can linger in people’s minds down the line even when they may have consciously forgotten about them.

Branding and Marketing

The most obvious and common application for these themes is in the corporate world, where business events are commonly designed with these ideas in mind. A company looking to energize investors or make them more aggressive, for instance, might theme a party heavily red, a color which can incite these emotions. Many will infuse color schemes with the company logo, or will just set a basic mood using a combination of color and light schemes.

There’s no better way to accentuate these themes than with special cupcake liners from Simply Wrappers. To find out how our themed cupcake wrappers might benefit your latest party, speak to one of our experts today.

Planning the Perfect Valentine’s Day Party

Simply Wrappers is your first stop for accessorizing anytime you’re throwing a themed holiday party, and there’s a big one around the corner. That’s right, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and we’re here with our themed cupcake liners to help accentuate the style of your party.

Whether it’s for a group of adult friends or simply a fun way to get the kids and a few of their crushes all in the same place, you want your Valentine’s themed party to go off splendidly. Here are a few tips for making that happen.

Theme

Firstly, you’ll want to pick your theme. This is your baseline for the rest of the party, the basis around which all other decisions are made. Keep a careful eye to your audience – nothing too racy if it’s a bunch of high-schoolers! Your theme defines how you’ll decorate outside, inside and throughout areas like the dining room. A few fun theme ideas, in case you’re coming up blank:

  • Affair of the Heart
  • Cupcake Tasting Party (perfectly complemented by Simply Wrappers custom cupcake liners)
  • Celebrate the Single Life (for a group of mostly men or women)
  • Truth or Dare Affair (if appropriate)
  • Valentine’s Day for Kids

Personalize

Once you have your theme, personalize the event in your own way. Our special cupcake liners are a great start, and this can extend to everything from invitations to party favors. Maybe you make a photo booth conducive to your theme, or maybe you create a themed sign-in board for everyone to enjoy. The options are virtually limitless.

Activities

No party is complete without a few great activities. If it’s a younger crowd, truth-or-dare type games can be fun if they’re kept appropriate. There are games both for couples- and singles-themed parties, or the intellectual crowd might enjoy a “history of Valentine’s Day” segment during the proceedings. If everyone is up for it, you can even make a party out of a day of romantic Valentine’s movies.

No matter what your choice, Simply Wrappers is here to accentuate the big day. For questions on Valentine’s Day designs or any of our custom cupcake liner products, talk to our friendly staff today.

Gobble Gobble!

Hey there, folks!

Thanksgiving is inching its way into our hearts with each and every passing day.
So...what are you gonna do about it?!

You can either sit there and slowly but surely await the pending arrival of the splendid day, ORRRR you can....BAKE BAKE BAKE!!

Get your house in the Thanksgiving spirit (if you haven't already), put up some decorations, do some crafts with the kids, display everything all over the house, and top it all off with some delicious cupcakes!

Here's an idea, why not bake some cupcakes now, and some for after Thanksgiving dessert?

I'm not saying to replace the pie...that's just un-American. 
Just simply add some cupcakes to the mix! It's such a great twist to the traditional Thanksgiving way.

Surprise your family with some scrumptious cupcakes after dinner. No one will be expecting it, and you'll be the belle of the ball!

Here at Simply Wrappers, we have come prepared.

Here is the recipe and directions for making these delicious cupcakes! Now read on and HAVE SOME FUN!

Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • Cupcakes from your favorite box of cupcake mix - Tops flattened and with a light slather of frosting on top
  • Chocolate frosting - for the slather talked about previously
  • Oreo Cookies
  • Whoppers
  • Miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  • Candy Corn
  • Assorted Icing - yellow, white and red (the pre-filled frosting tubes you can buy at the store are really great)

Directions:

  • Follow the cupcake directions on the box and pop those babies in the oven! You could also use your own favorite recipe from scratch! We'll let you decide.
In the meantime, start making your turkeys!
  • Grab an Oreo and put a little bit of chocolate frosting in the middle - this is just to make the candy corn pieces stick a little better
  • Start Stuffing the Candy Corn! 
  • Put a dab of frosting on the bottom end of the Oreo to allow it to stick to the bottom, or base cookie. (Place them next to a wall so they can dry and keep their shape)                   
  • Now, unwrap a peanut butter cup and cut a sliver off of one end. Place the cup upside down and cut the sliver off in a sawing motion.
  • Once the cookies are ready, flip them over and place a little frosting on the top of the PB cup to secure it to the cookie. 
  • With the turkeys in the same position, glue a Whopper on there with some frosting on the whopper and on the peanut butter cup.
  • After that, put two yellow frosting dots on for the eyes, and for the pupil, you can use a dab of chocolate frosting or a mini chocolate chip, or even a sprinkle.
  • Fort he beak, add a dab of yellow frosting with a smaller dab of white frosting on top.
  • Leave them here for 5 to 10 minutes to solidify.

 

  • Once dry, you can flip them over and add yellow feet!!

  • Once the cupcakes are out of the oven, let them cool until they are cool to the touch.
  • Slather on a thin layer of chocolate icing.
  • After that, carefully place your turkey on top of the cupcake.

Aaaaaaand.....Voila!!! You have done it!!

 

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Don't forget to add the best finishing touch!!


Pair your turkey cupcakes with our Brownie Dark Brown Cupcake Wrappers! You will, without a doubt, send off your family and friends in a cupcake frenzy afterwards!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!!

It's Halloweeeeeeeen!

Happy Halloweeeeeeeen!

Don't you just love this holiday?? 
Getting all dressed up, pretending to be something crazy or someone that you aren't, and getting free candy from all of your neighbors?
Think about it. How crazy is that?! On one day out of the year, we get to go to our neighbors' houses, or even strangers' houses, and ask for free candy.

AND THEY GIVE IT TO US.

What better way to celebrate the lives we live and to spread happiness??!
I know. A HALLOWEEN BASH! 
A "THE MONSTER MASH" themed Halloween party!!

You can make the party big by inviting all of your friends, or small and just have it with your hunny and kids!

Go ahead! Throw a fun party, with games and awesome festivities, and end it by gathering around the TV and watching "Halloweentown". C'mon. It's a true Disney Channel classic! Your kids will thank you for it, believe me.

And of course.....DO NOT FORGET THE CUPCAKES! You would ruin Halloween without them. 
And here at Simply Wrappers, we have just the ticket!
