If you are having a party, my new favorite thing to do is:
Create personalized party labels
*create simple labels (I used Microsoft Publisher)
*send them to your local print shop via email
*have them printed on large clear sticky backs
*stick them on everything!
A few bucks goes a loooong way!
A little "Thank You" tag for the favor boxes.
Boxes 8 for $1.50 @ Walmart
Some plain cirlces always come in handy too.
Perfect for their candy bags.
And run just a few copies of everyones names.
They're great for any favors.
Another good tip is...
...just because they sell Do-it-yourself balloon animal kits,
doesn't mean you should buy them.
Last summer, my lil sister & I
thought we would be such fun moms
& she got her kit out.
First of all...
We had fun trying to make something better than each other,
I totally won...I won't even embarrass her by
posting her creation
(Code for: I can't find a pic of hers, but mine was way better anyways.)
"What is it?"
"It's a puppy Bo."
"It's a puppy? I LOVE my puppy!"
"Look Zadie! I have a puppy!"
"Zadie let's see your balloon?"
Like, where's the fun in that?
See the tears on that poor girls shirt?
