When the reservations come in go get large letters of each child s name. Have lots of stickers, paints, glitter, paper, glue, pipe cleaners, sequins, brushes (for glue and paint) and any other little embellishments kids can decorate with. Don’t forget the plastic tablecloth – when the kids are done grab each of the four corners and bring to the top – discard. Such an easy cleanup.

Anything else anyone can think of post in comments….. I am sure the creative people can come up with lots of ideas!
Use clear disposable cups. Use diapers/receiving blankets and fold so the top of the blanket will come over the edge. Notice how the one side of the top is higher than the other – play with the fabric when rolling and tuck to give desired luck. Wrap cup with a ribbon and attack embellishment. Top with a pompom to look like a cherry. These can be used at a baby shower for decorations or used as name cards at a table. They then can be presented to the mommy/daddy to be to take home a use. Heck, you could even use this as a party game for your guests.
