Don't overlook discount and dollar stores in your party planning. I was able to do this entire thing including party favors, food, decorations and beverages for under thirty dollars and I had a great time with it.
I wasn't able to find a tablecloth to match so I used a big banner which only cost one dollar. I trimmed it to fit the table and then cut the leftover bits of it into streamers and bows for the balloons. That's what I call "a lot of bang for the buck".
We were all quite pleased with the results.
Some of the party favors included balloons, stickers, bubble blowers and poppers with streamers.
I kept the menu easy and mobile with choices for dieters as well as anyone else.
Coffee or tea
individual shrimp cocktails in shot glasses
Breaded/battered green beans, clam strips and mushrooms
Yes, a good time was had by all.
