I know I have been blogging few and far between but, I have busy! Busy doing things for Bella's Birthday party(and working my new job)... her theme is candy land.
Her is her demo invite* I made little changes to the actual invite such as I used ribbon and different font:
It's hard to read on purpose so you can't read the address but, the invites say: We think it would be just grand, if you helped us celebrate bella's 2nd birthday in candyland!
and the giant cotton candy i made... I got "snow blankets" (the white fluff they sell at Christmas to pout under your tree or Christmas villages) and turned it into cotton candy. I got the snow blanket for 90% off after Christmas!
And the very best part about planning a party in advance is... DEALS! Knowing your theme in advance means your always on the look out and can find amazing deals!! The snow blanket for 90% off. I found candy land board games for ONE DOLLAR!!! I found candy shaped lip gloss for .10 cents, Candy shaped silly bands for a dollar a package! In the target dollar isles I found lime green and hot pink metal buckets that match the candy land theme and only cost $2.50! I also found tons of candy ornaments at target that are candys, lollipops, gum drops etc. that will also be used next year for a kids themed Christmas tree so it has double use!
