Decorate Your Polka Dot Party!

Look what we found! Get ready to throw that "Polka Dot Party" you've always dreamed of with Target's line of affordably cute entertaining accessories in our favorite pattern: POLKA DOTS!

Available in two weeks from - The "Big Bash Collection" is a bright polka-dot-inspired party line of plates, mugs, serving pieces and even an adorable polka dot party cake stand. The cake stand is $24.99, a set of four cake plates or four ice cream bowls is $19.99 and a set of four mugs is $19.99 too.

Polka Dot Party Ideas:

Kid's Ice Cream Sundae Party - Use Target's polka dot ice cream bowls to create an entire theme, "Summer Ice Cream Sundaes". Cover the party table with two plastic tablecloths (stacked) from the dollar store (use blue tape to secure it under the table for a worry-free party). Use your polka dot cake stand as the centerpiece and top with small favor boxes for the kids, fresh flowers, or a balloon bouquet. Fill colorful bowls with sprinkles and candies, then set out chocolate and strawberry squeeze-bottle toppings. Have wipes and paper towels on hand. Give each child a polka dot ice cream bowl filled with scoops of ice cream, then let them play "Ice Cream Shop" at the table. Pre-ice cream activities could include coloring printed pictures of ice cream cones, playing "Pin the Scoop on the Cone" or even decorating little aprons.

Wedding or Baby Shower - A popular theme for showers this year, decorate with polka dots! Create a beautiful dessert table, then let guests serve themselves using their "Big Bash" polka dot cake plate. To use the large polka dot mugs, create a delicious coffee bar with flavored coffees, creamers, chocolates, liqueur, etc. After the party, you can then wash all the polka dot dishes and give to the new mom or bride as a special gift. Or, if you have a way to wash the plates and mugs at your location, guests can take their plate home as their shower favor! If you want to give the plates or mugs as a shower gift (only $5 each), but don't want to wash them, use them as your table setting decorations! I can see the plates holding a special card, photo or handmade placecard. The mugs can be filled with a single flower stem, candy, fancy tea bags or specialty coffees (chocolate covered pretzel sticks would be cute inside the mugs too).

I love parties and could go on and on with my ideas! I can't wait until this line of polka dot plates, mugs, bowls and serving pieces goes on sale at

Hope you enjoyed our polka-dot-find this week!
