Nothing ties a party together better than a theme.  There are a ton of cute themes out there but some of the best parties are those that think outside of the box when it comes to the theme.  Everyone has their own passions, quirks, loves, so begin there. Pick one of those and set the whole party around it.  This week's featured party: Fondue and Fabulous Shoes is not a "standard" shower theme and is a perfect example of making a theme more personal.

 The guest of honor has always had a love of fashion and shoes.  So much so that this love inspired her career: owner of a high end shoe store.  So we chose to let that inspire the theme.  All guests were asked to wear their "most fabulous shoes" to the party.   A more laid back feel to the party fit the guest of honor best so the great mingle food "fondue" made the perfect pair to our fabulous shoes.  Here are some other clever themed party ideas which carry extraordinary very personal themes:

1. 2nd Birthday Trash Themed Party by Cakes Like a Party Themed around a toddlers obsession.

2. Big Lebowski 30th Birthday Bash by Heart Tree Home - themed around the cult classic movie. 

3. Coletti Spaghetti 1st Birthday Party from my daughter's first birthday themed around her favorite food, spaghetti and playing on her nickname: Coletti Spaghetti.
