Birthday parties for 9 year olds are still events highly anticipated. This one isn’t fancy. But we sure had fun getting ready and even more fun at the party.
When you live where options and money are limited like we have in past years, you learn to be extra creative. A full craft stash is a must! My cuties did most of the creative work after I laid out different items for them to use. Instead of place cards, sticky foam letters on the glasses coordinated with striped straws.
are basic to any china cabinet. My momma taught me that!
She and her friends would borrow each others’ when they had a dinner party and not enough white plates! Somehow those plates never broke or chipped!
Plain clear glasses
can be decorated in all sorts of ways. Only a cutie could think of sticky foam letters with matching straws!
Another item from our craft stash was the
primary colored foam “buttons” .
Flowers can be found at local markets all around the world;
