Exciting Changes Coming!

Do what you do BEST, let the others handle the rest!  That’s our motto!

A while back we started asking our customers, especially our regulars – you know who you are, “Why do you come here? Why Fancy That?”  And while the answers were somewhat varied, they all came back to our unique product. Whether it’s a party, a gift or a little something for yourself, you guys like Fancy That, because, well, we are fancy… Go figure?!

So, this is awesome, you guys dig what we are doing, which is why we are going to start doing more of it!  Yep, while we love all of our product, frankly some of it you can get just about anywhere now.  And, let’s face it, it takes up a lot of dang space.  Space that can be filled by even cuter and more unique decor and gifts!  We are going to start transitioning away from a few of our party basics – think table cloths, utensils, pom poms, you get the idea… and fill that space with more super cute, unique and yes, lots more of the snarky products you love.  We will for sure always carry favorite lines like Meri Meri, Sambellina, Slant, My Mind’s Eye, and About Face – just more of it!

At the end of the day, we are going to stick to what we do best and that’s FANCY!

Beauty and The Beast Bridal Shower

Be our guest at the most fab Beauty and The Beast themed bridal shower! It’s all in the details and Bella C Parties did an amazing job styling this magical soiree with party pretties from Fancy That!


From the tiny gold teacups to the stunning cake made by Sewell Sweets, there is nothing ordinary about this party, so let’s take a peek, shall we?

We love how Bella C used our gold acrylic letters as both a photo prop and a banner!

Balloons are so in right now and people are coming up with such creative ways to use them! Our Mrs. & Mrs. , and metallic gold balloons were used as a table back-drop here and we love it!

All the heart eyes for these place settings! Our custom favors look so cute in the little gold tea cups! And check out our yellow scalloped plates and rose gold napkins.

Champagne on the rocks! Pouring champagne over rock candy is probably one of our favorite things. The rock candy flavors the champagne for a fun and easy cocktail! Try it with a clear soda for a non-alcoholic treat!

We love getting to collaborate with so many talented women and this was such a fun shoot – check out the list of vendors below and show them some love!

Easter Bunny Craft

Easter is almost here! We still have some adorable Easter party supplies left, so hop in and grab some before they are gone!

While your there, pick up a honeycomb ball or two and make these super cute little honey bunnies (get it…honeycomb + bunny…honey bunny)!

These little cuties are so easy to make! Here’s what you will need:

Supplies

5″ Honeycomb ball

Card stock in 3 different colors (I used silver, pink and black)

Hot glue

Printable guide (print out on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper)

Print out the guide on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper, then cut out the shapes. Trace the cutouts onto your card stock. For the ears and eyes I traced just one and then folded the paper in half and cut. Hot glue the inner ear to the outer ear, then hot glue the completed ears onto the honeycomb ball. Make sure the string to hang the balls is at the top of the head.

For the eyelashes cut along each of the vertical lines to make fringe, then cut every other piece off. This is a little tricky, but it makes the lashes more noticeable. Hot glue the lashes to the ball.

Next cut out the nose and hot glue to the honeycomb ball. You can add whiskers, but I chose not to.

Place the little bunnies on your Easter table or outside at your Easter egg hunt.

There you have it! A fun and fast Easter craft. What kind of Easter crafts, besides dying eggs, do you do at home?

Hoppy trails!

Katie
