1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Wicked Party (broadway <3) on: January 25, 2007 06:21:05 PM
I'm not sure if you've seen the play by now or not, but if you haven't.. you're going to LOVE it! I saw it on Broadway last Thanksgiving and thought it was fantastic.

And I think it would be fine if you let people loose to decorate their own tshirts. It'd be a good activity to keep people busy.

My sister and I like to sing along to the soundtrack and try to imitate the things the do with their voices.. maybe you should set up some kareoke.. it could get pretty entertaining! Hahah I know it always does when we try to bust out like Glinda and Elphaba Cheesy

It's never too early to plan in my opinion!

I wanted to try and help you out because I saw that nobody had responded to your post yet. I've hosted many parties not only for myself but for others as well and really-- it all depends what kind of halls you are looking at. Are they in churches, community centers, the Ritz Carlton? All the prices are going to vary.

If your a member of a club (like a country club or some other equivalent) the often let members rent out halls at discounted prices. Churches are really good places, often times if you plan in advanced they'll wave rental fees (especially if your a really involved member), community centers are great too. Several years ago a few of my friends rented out a community center's hall here and it was very affordable.

Dig into the back of your mind and try to think if you know anybody with any "connections". Often times family friends can help you get a hall for a lot cheaper.

Quinceanera's are very elaborate. They take lots of prepartion, just like a wedding. LittleMissPink has to hold rehersals so that all the people on her court know what to do. Have you ever watched My Super Sweet Sixteen on MTV.. a few of those girls have had Quinceaneras, all of them had to hold rehersals so all of the members on their courts knew how to do the chosen dance. 

In reference to your question though, is there anyway you could just put all the important info on another matching card to put in the invitation? You wouldn't want anybody getting confused about where to be and when on such a special day! Put the day of the actual party on the date/time openings in the poem and then include a seperate coordinating insert and then on the insert list all the rehersals and any other important information.

Good Luck!  Cheesy

Those look great! The detail is awesome. I just did my intials a week or so ago and they're not nearly as pretty and ornate (couldn't think of a better fitting word?) as these!

Thanks Guys! I'm going to start searching the stuff you suggested around here.

I know the felt monsters and decorated flip flops would be huge hits!!

Holy Moly! If I were a guinea pig I'd want to live there.

I love all the different "carpet-y" looking things. The one that goes up is so tight, haha it looks like condos!

Your clothes are so much cuter than anything I've ever bought for my Lucy! They probably fit better than anything mass produced too  Smiley
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / A bit broad I know... on: November 29, 2006 09:16:58 PM
This is a pretty broad question I know, but I need some suggestions...

I'm eighteen and the eldest of ten grandchildren-- for my whole life I (along with my cousins) have received a gift from each individual family in my extended family. That meant at christmas time we always got four seperate gifts. This year, however, due to tight budgets the adults opted to have their kids draw names (like they do). That means that each cousin has one other cousin to buy a gift for.

This totally works for me and will definitley make my holiday shopping a lot easier but I'm a little worried about all my younger cousins. (Ages range from 16 to 3) I'm afraid the younger ones won't understand why we're doing this (like why they got so many gifts last year, and only one this year) and get upset and stomp on some feelings if you know what I mean... I also feel a little bit bad because for 17 years I've received so many gifts and now our tradition is being changed and the younger cousins are "missing out".

So my question is-- can anybody think of some fun gifts that can be crafted that can be given to the younger kids? I know this is such a broad question but I thought maybe if all the adults came together and crafted up a few fun items then the younger kids would still think they're getting "a lot" of gifts-- simply because they have more packages to tear through.

I know this all sounds a bit materalistic but I didn't mean for it to sound like that at all. I'm just afraid that my younger cousins won't understand and will get upset and hurt somebody's feelings. Also, this is such a great opportunity to get together and craft and make gifts that truly mean something and could (possibly) be held onto for years.

Like I said-- our ages range from 18 to 3. Our interests range as much too-- we all lead pretty active lifestyles and almost all of us are involved in some sort of sport. I know last year my aunt made us all the tie fleece blankets and those were a HUGE hit because we could all take them to our various practices and games to keep warm. My grandmother has also made us all matching travel cases to bring with us when we visited her and that was a huge hit as well.

I know whatever we end up making will be much appreciated-- my cousins arent brats in the least and love to receive homemade gifts. Any ideas?? I apreciate it!!

Love that. My ex's boyfriends from Jersey.. that might not go over so well if I showed up on their doorstep with that though..I'll just have to think of someone else who might like a jersey shaped stocking!
