Well, we never do parties, let alone 'big' parties, but this time I am going all out. At first, I wasn't even going to have one, but then last week I had a lot of time on my hands and got carried away.
We are also moving sometime within the next 6-8 months. I think that was also part of the incentive.
I am doing a "Root Beer & Summertime" theme. There will be more adults than kids. I am going to make all the food and already have my menu planned out. Most of the things I can make the day before and will actually taste better.Here
are some of my decorations I have already gotten or made. The old radio flyer I am going to fill with ice and root beers. and if you can see the Kern-mason jars, I am going to fill them with ice cream and put on ice near the root beers. So, people can make their own floats. I'm also going to buy some of those old, paper straws.
This is some of the flag garland
that I made.
Here are the cupcake holders
that I am going to put the cupcakes in (and last night, I found recipes for root beer cake, so, I am going to give that a shot!!!). Who knew they make root beer schnapps.
and here is the cutest, littlest, itty-bittiest bunt pan
that I found at an antique store that I am making my DS's cake in. Probably just vanilla.
Since I never throw parties, I am determined to make this one fantastic since I won't be doing it again for a long time!
