By Jeran McConnel, Oleander and Palm and a Minted Party Ambassador

A circus themed party is a classic right?  It’s great for boys or girls, there’s animals and it offers a great bright color palette.  I made these “Greatest Kid on Earth” badges for 3 special birthday kiddos to wear to their circus themed party this weekend.

DIY Hair Ties

This just might be our easiest DIY ever. It’s as simple as tying a knot! We’ve been seeing these hair elastics in our favorite stores and all over the web, and can’t get enough. They’d make a great party craft for girls, a cute addition to a bridesmaid’s kit, or maybe they’re just the thing to brighten up that laundry-day-ponytail.


Happy Easter!

We hope you are having a wonderful day today with family and loved ones. And for those of you who are celebrating, we wish you a very Happy Easter! Click through to see a couple more Minted Easter celebrations.

Graphic designer Lauren Hom chronicles the little white lies we tell ourselves on a daily basis and in such a fun, colorful way it almost makes you not feel bad about it.
