So as she got older and appreciated it... I got a little more involved...
and so did the invites lol - I got a couple paper cut outs off ebay (hat, cat globe and kettle) and used glue dots to adhere them. Then printed the invite on white cardstock (believe it or not the green bubbles are on the printed cardstock and not an add on) - then I attached it to purple cardstock.
We had a fortune teller section behind the purple wall - neighbors girl came over and told each girl a fortune - just had her keep it pg13 lol
Streamers - balloons - signs and more were all over the house - where ever I could find a spot! They even had these cute things to fill out when they came in - as I didn't know all the numbers for their parents.
This big guy is my favorite and he just passed away this year (2010) - he's a puff ball with streamer legs that you could angle any way you want. I love making them look UP at decorations!
Ok I love these witches hat cookie - there's a surprise in the middle - I bought store made cookies and had them frosted black. I then took cones, filled them with mini m&m's and then put them on the cookie (upside down) and finished them off with cans of orange and purple frosting and a few sprinkles. I made mummy finger hotdogs too.
my favorite popcorn in a bag trick - easier than everyone fighting over a bowl of popcorn - brown paper bags, rolled down and ready to go!
The gang and two tv's for them to watch both movies - one was a premier and the other was a dvd. I just spread them out and let them have fun!
And our huge cake to feed all 24 kids lol
