School is starting up soon, and i am tryin to find a fun club/on going class that i can do like once a week, i found tons of art, dancing, sports, etc. classes, but no craft ones. if there are any teen ones that would b great, but adult classes would b cool too (assuming that i could even attend them) all the craft stuff i find is for little kids, so maybe sum of u fellow st. louis-ans could recommend any clubs u guys r n? thankz, a fellow crafter, w/ the urge to craft n a club
that sidewalk sale would b fun to come to, but i'll b out of town thursday-sunday, thats when The Endless YardSale Is (450 miles from KY to AL), i'll b comin back with loads of craft stuff, so i'll check the posts to c bout meetin up with everyone for sum crafting fun!
~you could use lots of colorful streamers to decorate and hang decorative pool towels for the theme, and if any forgets a towel ~ make pillows out of a chili pepper print, shaped like peppers and set out on the tables ~make candles shaped like chilies or piniatas ~ dont forget the mexican style food like tamalia, quesadillas, and a taco bar (shells, meat, lettece, tomato, cheese, salsa, etc.) ~cut up scraps of colorful tissue or construction paper and spread around table for a cheap, fast table decoration
~if its boys and girls, have girls n poodle skirts and boys n jeans and white tee-shirts ~ play 50's style music ~hang pics of poodle skirts and dogs on the walls ~make a cake shaped like a cute poodle ~ make all your food pink, with food dye, like veggie dips for the adults ~serve strawberry jello, easy for little kids to eat, and red is sorta like pink, lol
I'm having a HOLLYWOOD themed sweet 16 party. I have ALOT of ideas all ready, but it just doesnt seem to fill up the space n my house, i'll give u guys a little bit of wat i have planned, so i can maybe help me plan sum cool stuff! im new to craftster, but i luv crafts and DIY ideas, so i figure i'll b here awhile... ok here's the over view (for anyone thinkin of having a hollywood party, or for anyone who wants to get my 'party drift')
~outside the house is the red carpet, grammy music, mini strobe lights, ropes around red carpet, big hollywood sign on roof and white christmas lights n bushes
~when u get n, u hit the living room or the 'movie theatre' with glow lights on the ground (for aisles) consession stand with soda and movie candy, giant popcorn box filed with balloon 'corn' (each balloons has truth or dare ideas n it for later n the nite), a cardboard usher, with a reel basket of movie mints, a cardboard coat clerk (like at the fancy movie theatres)
~u keep walking, straight into 'outdoor hollywood' with a wall mural, walk of fame w/ my guests name on them, street signs, and famous ppl cut outs (to 'spot' celebreties) wat i need sum ideas on-
~cool food, aside from the movie munchies (i was thinkin maybe ritzie food, like stars get before the grammys n the 'green room', but im not sure how i could work that)... everyone will have dinner at my house, or at least snacks for dinner, so we will need sumthin other than candy
~decorations for the bathroom (the other rooms have a theme, but i cant think of one for n there, its small, but its tropical decorated now, so i need to think of somthing to cover that stuff up and stay with the theme)
~party favors (its hollywood, so i thought about movies, but that would b expensive, so i got nothin, lol)
~ any decor for any of the rooms
~any craft ideas to make as an activity for each person to take home (maybe a hollywood style purse or something?)
u guys r all smart, so i put the current fate of my party n ur hands!!
I hope it will be sweet , lol. i figure, w/ a scavenger hunt, i'll get to drive alot, with out my mom for once, yay! lol happy early b-day to u too! my birthday is june 9th! the theme for once we get back to my house is HOLLYWOOD (we r gunna have alot of fun decor and games n stuff, since the scavenger hunt takes a long time, but it cost like almost no $$, like $30 bucks or so, and i've been savin since my b-day this year, so i can have alot of cool stuff, lol) i wanna get a caricature guy (since they have ones of famous ppl n hollywood restaurants), but thats for another post, hmm...
