Host A How To Train Your Dragon Party

Dreamwork's How To Train Your Dragon is the perfect theme for any age!

Dreamwork's How To Train Your Dragon is the perfect theme for any age! If your child has been asking for this specific party, you can make it happen!

If you don't have room in or outside your home to host a lot of children, think about finding the perfect venue. You are going to want to find a kid-friendly venue that may have some sort of outdoor area to allow the children to join in on outdoor party games. You can even rent a water slide or a bouncy for them to enjoy. On a side note, it helps the children relieve some of the energy they have, and saves you from a lot of indoor noise.

When looking for a venue,  think about a bowling alley or local pizza place (if you don't mind skipping out on the outdoor fun). Those sorts of places will assist in the decorating and possibly provide balloons and other party decor. It's not going to be cheap. so you may want to re-think the party at home.

Once you've decided on a place to host your party, it's time to get those invitations out. Depending on the age of your child, you could sit them down and have them make cute invitations for all their friends. You can even have them make one full-sized invite and print out as many copies as you may need. They can do it at the table (you will need to scan the finished product) or they can do it with software or online at a site. Either way, it will give you more time to decide on a cake!

As far as paper supplies for your party, if your dragon cake is green, simply buy napkins and plates that match or accent your other items. You can do this with balloons, as well. If anything, it will save you a bit of money in the end.

(Note: There's excellent concept pages, full of unique and exciting "Dragon Party-themed" party decorations! Check them out on Pinterest!)

As far as other decorations, you can be as creative as you like. The cake can be a mountain lava cake, with tiny dragons around the base. There are plenty of party stores that offer " How To Train Your Dragon" supplies, and just by stepping in the aisle, your creative side will kick in, and before you know it, you are loading everything you need into your trunk, with a smile.

Party Favor Ideas: Paperback books from the movie. Dragon erasers, pencils, and so on. Look for these at local party stores or online.

Food Ideas: Dragon Balls (Meatballs with food coloring). .. and so on! Be creative, good luck, and have fun!

A Guide To Choosing An Accept Chair

Choosing an accent chair is much easier than you thought!

When seeking the perfect accent chair, whether it be for a recently renovated room, an empty space, or any other reason, the first thing you should consider is color.  Do you have an accent wall that you plan on placing the chair in front of? Is it going to be in  a corner, where both walls are the same color?

If you do have an accent wall, you may want to think of a chair that does not sink into that wall, by being the exact same color.

Choose light colors that liven up the other walls and make your chair stand out. Although, a chair with a variety of colors AND the color of your accent wall, definitely works.  If anything, you can always go a bit further and choose a paint that fits and go from there. Many local hardware and paint stores have color swatches that you can take home and work with.

Once you decide where your chair is going to be placed, it is time to choose that perfect chair. You are going to want to consider size, comfort, price, material, and style.  You may also want to decide whether you prefer arms or not.  Arms are a great addition to an accent chair and hold whatever is placed on the chair much better. On a side note, you can choose a decorative pillow (it does not have to match anything else in the room) to place on the chair.  I have found that some people assume that a lot of things in life have to match, but they truly don't. Be creative, create your own style, and simply be yourself. 

*Have you thought about antique or even second hand? What a wonderful DIY project, where you can refinish grandmother's old chair and make it stand out once more. And what a wonderful way to fill your home with memories and presence.

You can find many stores that sell accent chairs, it is just a bit of foot work. In the end, when you have what you have been looking for, you will be glad you invested the time.  Online research, referrals from friends and family are always other options.

There are so many styles out there, it simply depends on your taste. I have a few accent chairs in my home, and believe it or not, they don't match any other furniture and it works!  Good luck on finding and placing that wonderful addition to your room!
