At my house...




Today is a busy day. Birthday party planning and crafting is on the top of my "to do list"
I am feeling excited and inspired with what I have laid out before me so far. The party has a very...little boy carnival... theme to it.
My husband and I have had fun coming up with some vintage style games such as: Knock em down tins (I have been saving tins for weeks now)! Spoon and ball races (I have painted some wooden spoons and found little coloured balls to be placed on top) Tug of war (this one is on my husbands to do list) Bean bag toss (I found this at Spotlight - they carry a lovely range called Amscan) you can see it in the image above and it is made of wood which I just love! The funny thing is this is a family party...there will only be 3 little boys and 13 adults. So the adults are in for lots of running about and laughs and not a lot of sitting about eating cake...not that they would I know they will all get in and have a laugh with the kids and each other. Over the next couple of days I will post some of the crafty preparations and some of the delicious (I hope) food recipes that I have planned for Sunday. Happy Monday...I am off to start some crafty chaos!

So many fun things in there. I love the popcorn bags. I think adults love an excuse to party like children. You can pretend all the games are for the children so the adults can relax and have fun. Sounds like a great party is coming together. I look forward to seeing more.

Thanks for joining in this week. Lou.
