Party Decorating for Little or Nothing and THE GAME

Yesterday was GAME DAY and our friends Dan and Nancy (Acorn Cottage) came over . In order to get ready for our fun, I did an inventory of party decorations and paper goods saved from previous parties and activities. I tried to use as many things I already had. Above you will see (top right around the table) red dinner plates, football napkins, red cups, foam football cutouts, confetti, football snack dishes, white plastic forks, red silicone cups and in the the middle are football cutouts to hang up. When I buy these type of items I ALWAYS save anything that is leftover--one never knows when they will need it. This way I hopefully don't have to buy anything for the next party or event. These are then stored in a spare closet for the next use. The items above are the only things I bought. Out of all the tablecovers that I have I did not have a white one---go figure. Total spent $3.00. :) THE GAME---getting ready for the appetizers. THE PICKS---I have had this chalkboard since I was a little girl! THE TABLE---before. Here is a peek at the confetti. THE TABLE---after it is laden with round one food. There was a mishap with round two so no pics. Lost a pizza in the oven! :( THE WINNERS!
Next year, Dan--Nancy's husband
and I have vowed that we will be
THE WINNERS!!!!
Great fun was had by all.

  2. What fun you all must have had! You must be related to my daughter in some way!! With my son-in-law being the athletic director, Trista is the host to a lot of sports get-togethers...she saves all left over party supplies and is always looking for a bargain on napkins, cups and plates...
    Glad you all had a great evening..

  5. Thanks for coming over to visit my blog. Yours is great! I am like you, I save left over party supplies to use for future parties. It sure is nice to walk to the closet and pull out supplies instead of going to the store and spending lots of money! Carla
