Ugh! I have had NO NO NO time to blog, POO! I miss my weekly posts. I finally have a minute to post my newest item in my Etsy shop. Plans on how to build your own floating ping pong table for your pool. I have to say, this is one of the most USED pool items we have. My poochie Phoebe even loves to get on it and float around hahahaha, not to mention she goes crazy when the ping pong ball is going back and forth! (I posted photos quite some time ago). I have had so many compliments about my pool toy that I decided to go ahead and make the plans so you can make your very own ping pong table for your pool. The kids (and grown ups) will love it!
Just wanted to share some Party Invitation ideas that I have done over the years. I just recently did the Survivor Theme. I like hand making my invitations, I just think it is more personal, more creative and a lot of fun to do! You can get the kids involved as well, I mean it is THEIR Party isn’t it! LOL!
For my Survivor themed kids party last weekend, I made up a batch of Mojito’s (Of course with NO Alcohol, although at 2:00 in the morning listening to the noise they were making in the tents, I think my neighbours wished I would have put a shot or two of rum in the drinks, maybe they would have slept better! Ooops hahaha). I used cute little blue martini glasses (plastic, no injuries here), the girls loved them, they were asking for more!
MOJITO’S A LA KIDS (YUM!)
– 7-up or Sprite 2Litre Bottle
– Our Finest Mojito Mocktail (3 Cans 250ml each)
– about 3 cups ice
– Sliced Limes
– Mint Leaves
Put the first three ingredients in a blender and blend, you can use the ice crusher setting first and then blend. Pour into your prepared glasses and top with a sliced lime and mint leaf, awwww so refreshing and citrus on a hot day! 🙂
We had a “Survivor” Themed Party here last weekend. I just wanted to share a game that I crafted up, a game that we are all familiar with, adults and kids alike. The Memory game, survivor style. I am sure we have all seen the “Survivor Memory Game” played on the television series, although that game is more technical in it’s layout, this game is more simple and you can do it right at home!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
– Black foam cardboard (the pieces you need depends on how many boards you want to make. I cut my boards to 11″x9.25″ inches).
– Shipping Tape in Clear (it’s easier if you have a tape gun, and this step is optional)
– Colour Printed Photos (the same size as your board, and you need 2 of each design. I went with a survivor theme for picture choices).
– Glue Stick
Cut out all your boards. You can make them bigger, you can make them smaller, it’s all up to you. Just make sure they are all the same size. Cut out all your pictures to the same size as the boards. (I had 24 pictures in total). Glue each picture with the glue stick to the foam board. If you are not using the shipping tape, you will have to use quite a bit of the glue stick to make sure the pictures are glue properly to the board. When the boards are completely dry, I carefully taped the entire board with shipping tape, front and back, this protects my “Memory Game” for many future uses at other parties. It is less costly than having them plasticized (which is another good idea). When setting up your game, remember to either set up the boards facing down all horizontally or all vertically. I played this game in teams, our survivor party had “Two Camps”, each team was timed, and whoever completed the game the fastest, WON!
This is a great easy game that everyone has fun with. You can always change your pictures to match whatever theme you are doing.
Just another one of my great passions… throwing those awsome kid themed parties. I have done tons and tons of themes. From “Survivor”, “Spa-Day”, “Super Model”, “Hawaiin Beach Party”, I could go on and on. I am going to showcase some of those parties here. I will also be offering them as “Party Pax”. You will get all the information on “HOW-TO” do everryyyything. The Theme, The Games (with instructions on creating anything for that game and how to play), The Prizes, The Loot Bag Goodies, Awesome Recipes, The Cake (or cupcakes), absolutely all you will need to know to throw your amazing day.
I hope to even have video segments. My parties usually last a good 4 to 8 hours and I even have the sleepover ones. You can even get the Birthday Boy or Girl involved with helping you out. My Themed Party Pax are always the parties that are talked about forever and forever. But the best thing…. A most memorable and incredibly fun party event!!
Keep your eye out, I plan to have some news coming soon.
