Halloween Party

Adrianne Pepitone

It's almost here -- Halloween! The ULTIMATE party of the fall is just around the corner and we are going black and white!

Halloween Party Ideas | Black and White Halloween Party

Our party is inspired by old black and white horror films, so we ditched the traditional orange and black and did a classic black and white that will work for both adults and kids!

Halloween Balloons | Marble Balloons

Our Marble Confetti balloons fit perfectly into this theme! Especially our swirly, marble balloons for some fun detail.

Mermaid Party

Let's dive in and plan a gorgeous Mermaid Party! This classic theme is every girls dream -- big and small! Psst -- do you still do a little flip with your feet after driving under water??


Simply combining shells, strands of pearls and some sea glass inspired pieces make the perfect under the sea atmosphere! Not to mention adding some little bubble balloons!


Shiny purple, shimmering mint and ocean blue makes the perfect mermaid party balloons!


Sprinkle some confetti and loose pearls for an added detail to the desert table.


Short on time mama (when are we not!), I've curated the best of the best mermaid party decorations! 


Tropical Baby Shower

Baby ShowersAdrianne PepitoneComment

Oh baby, baby! The summer is here and so are all the pregnant mamas! Seriously, what were we all doing in the winter I wonder?! Anyways! Tropical is the way to go with a summer baby shower, add some pink for a girl, mint for a boy or yellow for a neutral. Either way, grab your cocktails (and mocktails) and start this summer fun party.

Sweet and simple go a long way for a baby shower. Simple cake with these adorable pink sunnies, plus a toss of confetti and some tropical balloons and you're ready to celebrate mama and baby. 

Are these cute sun plates not perfect for a summer baby shower?! Paired with pink and mint and yummy cupcakes and you have yourself a simple way to incorporate "cute" without going crazy. 

I've rounded up some party essentials for your tropical baby shower to make your shopping easier!

Magical Unicorn Party

Adrianne Pepitone

We are big fans of unicorns over here at Studio Pep (and that's a major understatement)! This is a theme that works perfect for little and big girls alike. Anyone else want to have a 30-something unicorn party?!

We've paired our Unicorn Classic Balloons, a fun piΓ±ata (that we got at Wal-Mart --- seriously), some fun disco balls (Amazon prime for the win) and pretty unicorn plates from Target, because when are we not at Target?

Don't have a fancy cake topper for your unicorn cake? No problem babe. We've created this cute little number with a fun, glitter birthday candle, stickers from our local craft store and disco balls. Super simple, just how we like it!

Feel like you're missing a little bit of something on your tables? Grab a tube of our hand-pressed unicorn confetti and toss it around to add some sparkle!
