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!
