Happy New Year 1.1.11

It's a brand new year.

A brand new chance to start fresh in choices, chances and Christ.

Yes, I know this is my party planning blog, but Christ is part of every party that I plan or entertain at, in my actions (God willing) and my motivation. He gives me the courage to enter into a strangers home and create a connection with this family in participating in their very important and special events. I adore my job. It's giving me life long friends as well as many, many clients that I would do just about anything for.

So, thank you all and hopefully we will start our 11th year of business with a bang!

1.1.11 11th Anniversary!

Fun Christmas Craft for Kids

Christmas Crafts for Kids - Reindeer Craft Treat Holder

A Reindeer craft that kids can make and give as a gift.
These whimsical little reindeer can serve as place card holders
for a holiday table, party favors, or give a large reindeer as a gift,
filled with the recipients favorite candy!

They are an easy and inexpensive craft for classrooms or scout troops.

You'll Need:
Craft glue, glue stick or glue dots
Terracotta clay pots; 2"-5"
Plastic eyes
Red pom-poms (glitter pom-poms are a fun addition!)
Three shades of brown craft foam, cardstock paper or construction paper;
we combined all three to make our reindeer family.

parts pictured for the large reindeer
2 antlers
2 large ears
2 small ears
2 eyes
one red nose

How to Make It:
First, with one shade of brown, cut the antlers to match the size of
your pot. If you are making the larger reindeer, use a child's handprint as pattern. Then, cut the ears with the other brown. We used a lighter shade of brown to add yet another layer to the ears but that's not necessary.

Attach they ears to the back of the pot. Then add the antlers.

Glue the eyes and nose the front. Fill the pot with candy, nuts or other goodies. It's that simple!

Twitter Party Tips of the Day - November 2010

Party tip of the day: November 2010

Party tip of the day: Now is a great time to start planning ur Christmas open house! A fantastic way to enjoy company throughout the day!

Party tip of the day: Jumpers are a great add to a party but bring your child flip flops so they won't b running around on the cold floor in socks

We offer Party planning and event entertainment for all occasions! Call to book your birthday or Christmas party today!

Party tip of the day: Flowers can be a beautiful add-on to your event but think thru the size of centerpiece, table length etc. before u buy!

Party tip of the day: 1 of 25 kids have food allergies, don't forget to talk with the parents before you plan a meal full of nuts, eggs & milk!

Party tip of the day: Please,Please cover your rental tables! Go to the 99 cent store,buy disposables,it will bring color & safety to the event!

Party tip of the day: Always make a few extra goodie bags just in case you have a sibling or extra guest! Don't use them, donate to a shelter

Party tip of the day: Order your birthday supplies earlier, if ordering them online that way you don't any added stress to your day :)

Addition to today's party tip: Entertainers can only entertain so many kids at one time, so please don't expect 40 kids to be painted in 1 hr.

Party tip of the day: PLEASE DON'T tell your entertainers 20 kids guests and actually have 40 show up! Most work on a per kid & hourly basis

Party tip of the day: With Thanksgiving approaching don't forget to include the kids in the cooking, prep and the event all together!

Party tip of the day: Don't keep up with the Joneses! Your 2 year old will not remember that you spent $1000 on a party! Spend wisely!
