This is so simple and cheap and makes a huge impact of color that can be hung from a ceiling or tree or from whatever is above you on your next celebration. When balloon is blown up add a penny to the balloon before you blow it up. This is just the perfect amount of weight to stabilize the balloon so it will hang with little movement from wind or air conditioning. Pictured is all white for a wedding - but think about what your color combinations are for your event and play them up. Multicolored would do for a birthday party; white silver/gold for anniversary; colors of a school for graduation; red white and blue for Fourth of July or Memorial Day; red pink and white for Valentines Day – the possibilities are endless. You could literally have hundreds of these for under ten dollars. Major impact of color(s) and you will be sure to have people in awe.
Blow up balloons and with a needle and thick thread thread them together to make a balloon garland. This is very cheap and a great way to add a lot of color to a party. You can use thread but would be more secure if you used embroidery thread. Mix and match colors for your theme to go with the colors of a school for graduation or just go random for a birthday party. This can be something done at the last minute as well as you can get everything you need and have it ready to go.
It is that time of year again – both for those delicious fresh strawberries and time to express your patriotism by celebrating all things red, white and blue for 4th of July and Memorial Day. Here is a simple way to dress your strawberries up and it will make your next get together more festive. Simple dip strawberries into melted white chocolate or melting chocolate and dip end in a mix of red and blue sprinkles. They even have sprinkle with little stars that come as blue and red.
Have everyone bring what it takes to make ‘their signature’ drink…. along with a favorite appetizer with enough for everyone. Great experience and great conversation starters. Challenge guests to make a special one-of-a-kind drink if they don’t already have one – and allow people who don’t drink to bring in a special non-alcoholic ‘signature’ drink so they can feel incorporated into the festivities.

Sent to us from Cynthia and this originates from FaceBook profile: LittleBirdieInvitationsandDesigns. What a great cheap little egg gift that could be used to put in a basket, to decorate a table, little party gifts for adults, name tags with a tag tied on with a pretty ribbon. You can even used a multitude of different colored yarns that you have as leftovers. I am even thinking red, white and pink for Valentines Day, black and orange for Halloween. Birthdays could be colors to match your theme. Christmas red, green, white with something just very special inside. See where I am going? I even think you could get extra creative and glue or tie little embellishments onto these to make them extra special. You could even get the kids involved to make a bunch for a class party.

A delicious white grape spritzer is the perfect drink to bring in the New Year. Frozen fruit serves as yummy ice cubes and the super sour rim just might be sour enough to knock you into 2013.
What you need to make this delicious drink: 6 cans Welch’s white grape peach juice, 1 bottle cold sparkling white grape juice, fruit cocktail that you will freeze into pieces, Hawaiian Punch “singles to go” packets.
Dip the rim of a glass into the Welch’s white grape peach juice and then press the rim down into the Hawaiian Punch powder.
To create the Spritzer: 1. Add a few pieces of frozen fruit to the glass. 2. Fill half of the glass with Welch’s white grape peach juice. 3. Fill the rest of the glass with sparkling white grape juice.
Fruit flavored suckers make the perfect stirrers for these Super Sour White Grape Spritzer! If the Hawaiian Punch is too sour on the rim, use sugar instead.
Thanks to Colleen Beckem for this submission!
So now the holidays are over and you have that leftover wrapping paper – and the questions comes up of what exactly to do with them. This creative idea was shared by Barbera Lipten and is much appreciated. Use four eye hooks and wire thinned than bailing wire. My wife and I still just take the remnants and carefully fold them down to go into storage with our Christmas decorations. We will even do this with brand new rolls of paper. But this idea is really great for the everyday paper for us. Birthday paper, baby etc. It also makes it so the paper is very handy to get to and put back.
Cut a 2 liter of pop/drink like shown above. Will eliminate drink spillage when guests are visiting and make one less thing for you to cleanup. Once done wash and dry and store inside the cooler for the next time.
Found this incredibly tasty looking drink and just had to share. I remember one time when my son and I were at The International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, NM and we shared a watermelon drink over ice and this reminded me of that occasion. The memories of seeing the hundreds of hot air balloons at the show for the first time and the watermelon drink were fantastic. Now I will surprise him with this drink one afternoon when he gets home from school and see if it brings back the same memories that we once shared.
