Have you noticed that people are really getting into party hats? I LOVE IT! People who are willing to be silly and to dress up are usually the most fun, whether they are kids or adults. So basically if you have fun party hats at your party or in your daily life, I love you.
Here are my favorite party hats, some you can buy, some you can make, all are welcome at my next party:
20 Best Party Hats
Wee Three Kids Shop crochet crowns are precious in the best way
Geronimo Balloon confetti party hat screams PARTY!
Ban.Do party headband is a nice twist on the party hat tradition
Oh Happy Day DIY party hat including a template.
A Pumpkin and a Princess also made DIY sparkly party hats. I never say no to sparkle.
A Pretty Cool Life DIY party hat cupcake toppers are possibly the cutest thing ever.
Opening Ceremony pompom hats used store bought party hats and gussy them up. That’s my ideal.
Jacks & Kate made these genius sprinkled mini party hats. I know the hats are paper but I really want to just try a bite.
Confetti hats! 100 Layer Cakelet always has the answer.
Just so we’re totally clear and there’s no confusion, my birthday is July 7th and this is what I want it to look like. Those hats are a must.
Party headbands a la Julep (Minted’s blog) are also acceptable
Ambrosia Girl made this DIY wire birthday crown and I really love it because you can go so many directions with it
I realize spelling out these letters can make me sound vapid but Oh. Em. Gee. THESE from Baby Jungle. And you can actually make them.
The immensely talented and creative Merrilee of Mer Mag made these awesome New Year’s Eve hats which you can obviously adapt to any celebration (or daily life if that’s how you roll). Her blog is now at here so go get lose there for awhile and then get her book so your kids think you’re much cooler than you really are.
LACE CROWNS! Girl Inspired indeed.
Polka Dot Chair has printable…. wait for it… polka dot party hats!
I just can’t say no to confetti. There isn’t enough self control in the world to make that happen. This is also really quick and I think it would be a super cute (albeit super messy) party activity. Just have the adults tie on the elastics after the kids decorate and they can put them on once they dry and then they can eat cake while wearing fun party hats. Heaven. Confetti Sunshine, I applaud you.
I don’t want to confuse anyone into thinking that I’ll be making any of these for Mia’s upcoming birthday party. BUT if anyone else wants to, that would bring me pure joy. It’s really just a time issue. Even though some of these are really quick and easy (or you can purchase and have someone else make for you) I have a tendency to go overboard with all the things I want to do, so this year I’m trying to stick to one or two things and I’ve already gotten the supplies and am forcing myself not to get more.
So… party hats. Do you love them as much as I do? Do you think they’re overrated? No, don’t tell me if you think they are because that would put our relationship in jeopardy. Unless you think we are so strong that we can withstand that kind of discrepancy. But maybe just don’t.
P.S. Honorable mention because I just saw it, Best Friends for Frosting disco ball party hat. Aw yeah!
