Hope your holiday weekend was great. It was all about friends and family gathering to share lots of good food and be thankful for each other and the love we share.
We had our Thanksgiving on Friday instead of Thursday. With having a firefighter son in law and a daughter that is a nurse it is hard sometimes to get our schedules all the same. They both worked the holiday so we did our Thanksgiving on Friday all together. It was fun and yummy.
I wanted to share with you a few more things I made up for the girlfriend charity party I am hosting this Friday Night.
|Found these cute chalk board tags at Michaels. They came 12 in a package for $1.99 with 40% off. Great deal. Used a white paint marker to write "For Your Mistletoes" on the tags.|
|Got boxes of Brach's candy canes from Walmart. 98 cents a box.|
|Tied everything off in little clear gift bags.|
|So each girl will get a "For your Mistletoes" favor at the party. Cute favor for less than $5 dollars to make. Here is the post on the cute gift bags I made for the party if you missed this post.|
Have you ever played the "Purse" game. It is a fun party game. You have everyone grab their purse and we sit all together with our purses and then I pick out of a bowl items that can be found in your purse. For example a tube of lipstick, a costco membership card, gum, mints, grocery reciept, toothbrush etc. If they have this they get a piece of candy or a point. Then the one with the most points or pieces of candy at the end of the game wins a prize. I try to come up with hard things to find in your purse to make it a little more challenging along with the usual stuff.
It is fun to see what peeps find in their own purse. My daughter won last year because she had a sock in her purse!!!! Yep don't ask me why but she had a sock in her purse. Anyway it is a fun game. At the end of the game I give each player a little prize for playing.
|Found these sassy little purses at the dollar store. I think they are actually cute gift card holders. Anyway they were cute and fun for the girls and I nabbed them for a dollar.|
|I then got $1 scratch offs to put in the little purses along with a lucky penny. Every girl needs a little holiday cash right?! Hope someone wins big when they scratch off their prize ticket.|
Happy Decorating if you are starting your decor happy.
So there you have it. A couple more little things I have done up for my girlfriend party for this Friday night. I will show you some of the prizes in the next post.
Have a great day.
