end of the school year party [storyboard]
A friend of mine is having an end of the school year party for her kiddos and she asked me to help her come up with some ideas - yippee! She's already got some outdoor games and a mini-pie eating contest in mind - the kids are gonna love it! Read on for what I've come up with so far and don't forget to stop back Thursday for a yummy seasonal recipe.
Fun and fresh - buntings draped on the deck, pinwheels on the snack table, gender neutral summer colors like teal, red, and yellow.
1) buntings by Starlit Nest
7) pinwheels by Elizabeth St.
I am totally hooked when it comes to the fun photo booth ideas floating around the internet these days! Large empty frames, jumbo sunglasses, fake mustaches, and chalkboard bubbles on a stick make for some super photo ops! How cute would it be to take those photos and pop them in a photo strip collage using picnik?!
2) jumbo sunglasses by Oriental Trading
(I bet you could even find some at a thrift store!)
3) chalkboard speech bubble by mister mustache
4) fake mustache by stichesintime
Since this party will take place after school, a light snack is a must. A while back I saw the cutest "make your own snack mix" idea and have been itching to use it! I just ordered myself some fruit baskets (the ones shown, actually! don't worry, she has more...) - they would make the cutest serving pieces at a party like this one. Most aren't food safe, so make sure you pop a bowl inside before adding the food.
