It was our hubbies birthdays this past week. Being 2 days apart and pretty much having all the same friends, it's always a combined party. Seems like we have parties coming out of our ying yangs lately...hehe
I went with a game night theme and it worked out perfectly! We had different stations set up for yahtzee, black jack, uno spin, wii, rockband and cranium. It was so hilarious to watch people play, what a great time. I made up signs for each station and plopped them in some frames I already had. Here are the signs I printed.
Akiko and my mom are laughing histerically at the yahtzee station and here's the tidy cranium station before it was destroyed with 15 players....haha....sooo much fun!!!!
Now lets talk Decor!
I made playing card flowers and plopped them around the house. Love how they turned out and sooooo quick and easy.
While Judge Judy and I caught up on some lost time, I wrapped some square vases and tealight holders I have in red & white tissue paper then added some black punched out circles to create dice.
We hung up some streamers and a banner I put together in about 5 minutes. So easy. I printed and cut monopoly money and bingo cards and picked up a pack of playing cards from the dollarstore. Ran all of them through my sewing machine and voila....a custom banner that cost me $1 =) Okay...maybe the cutting took me h o u r s u p o n h o u r s.....
Now for another banner. Using the Accent Essentials & Zoobaloo cricut cartridge I put together this banner for the boys and again ran it through my sewing machine. Badda Bing Badda Boom! Kinda went a little wonky since I didn't tie it tight enough =(
And the best part....The Food Table!!!!! I covered the table with twister, decorated it with more games, dice vases & tealights and my card flowers. This area was me and my little sweet potato's favourite hangout....tee hee Btw, Akiko is the best at decorating platters with scrumptiousness =)
CAKE and the birthday boys.
And PARTY FAVOURS....wohooo. Everyone went home with a drink, a little treat and a game. And here are the custom labels I made for the drinks. Label making makes me happy....haha
lifted the label layout from HERE To see the label bigger, click on the picture.
We are so lucky to have the friends and family that we do. Everyone had so much fun that the last of our party-ers left at 4:00AM.....now THAT'S a party!!!!!
Did I forget to mention that in total it cost me $20 to decorate???? That's what I'm talking 'bout...whaaaat!!!
