We are giving a party for my daughters 18th Birthday in July. She has chosen "Girly Skulls" as her 'theme', we have an image for the cake, and the invites made, colors are Hot Pink, Black & White. Other than that I am stumped. lol
Food: We were thinking maybe a pasta dish with garlic bread, some pizzas & salad & of course cake & ice cream. But I am willing to change this if any ideas I like better! lol I can keep foods hot in crock pots on the serving table, but cant keep cold foods cold at the table, would have to store those in fridge in kitchen.
Location: We have rented a medium sized bldg for the party, she is planning to have a DJ & dancing if they wanna. There is a full kitchen on site.
Thats about as far as we have made any plans. Please give me ANY ideas you got!!!! Thanks all!
Although my daughter is now 17 & doesnt believe in the Easter bunny (and hasnt for quite awhile) I still like to do up a 'basket' for her. But this year I am kinda stumped, what to give a 17 year old in a basket other than some chocolate (that none of us need LOL) She is into : her Ipod & cell phone (texting) loves music Spongebob Squarepants (ugh) Eeyore purses television & movies clothes favorite color is green
I was thinking the possibility of using a new purse as the 'basket' & filling it with stuff, would that be ok to do or TOO non traditional??
Have been with my Hubby almost 7 years now, married for 4 of it. I always make a big deal out of V-Day every year & he loves it. But I am running out of ideas here, so am looking for some new ones. They have to be easy ones tho, I aint that crafty! LOL
I have done most of the lil things you find online in searches, have done CDs of love songs, have done a candy bouquet (this was a hit tho, so may do again) love coupons (every year) always do sexy boxers & a funny Tshirt. He isnt much into sweets, but loves home cooked food (steaks are on this years menu) last year was lasagna.
He doesnt like any sports, isnt into video games, loves the computer & tinkering with them.
We are thinking about doing some traveling this summer, museums, Amish country, things like that, but cant come up with anything along those lines. I did buy him a GPS for Christmas tho if anyone has any ideas there? (Already has a case & warranty LOL)
Just wanted to say Thank you to everyone for sharing your thoughts, ideas, & crafts here. I have found so many useful ideas & have used many of them for my upcoming wedding (only 10 days left) and I felt that I should say 'Thanks for Sharing!!'
I will be sure & post lots of wedding pics, but dont be surprised if you see one of YOUR ideas in there somewhere!! LOL
I have decided on getting wooden boxes from WalMart & hand decorating each one with things the person likes (colors, flowers etc) then filling them with small gifts for the person. Any ideas on what I could put in them? I have a locket & earring set for each of the bridesmaids & the flower girl, but need more ideas. And have no ideas for the best man. Help please!!
I am looking for food ideas for renaissance type foods, Yes, I have looked on the search engines! LOL But hoped to get some tried & true recipes here if possible.
So far I have decided on:
Dragons Tail (this is a sausage roll type thing) BBQ Pork (with hot rolls) Cooked cabbage with green peppers Roasted Potatoes
Not a lot so far, so need all the help I can get here! I will be doing all the food prep myself, so anything that can be kept hot in a crack pot would be great!! I am expecting only about 30 people for the reception if that helps any.
