One of my fave event planners, Jamee at Setting the Mood in Indianapolis put together this great Colts table. If you're hosting a Super Bowl gathering, it's time to start working on the details and this table has many that I LOVE! Click on the photo to see it larger. Here are some of the smaller details that really stand out:
sweatband napkin rings
full blue tablecloth under a cut turf (outdoor grass) overlay. Spray paint stencil the hash and numbers on the "field" or use vinyl.
jersey chair covers
love the blue plates turned upside down and used as chargers. It gives the dinner plate additional height.
That's my son, Keaton, about to nail me with a snowball on the snow day we enjoyed Monday. We live in a neighborhood packed with children and yet he was the only out for most of the day. I was really surprised.
And much later, while we were enjoying hot chocolate and drying out, I was thinking we should have knocked on doors and had a Snow Day party!
Of course, we knew a couple days before of the weather forecast and it would've been fun to put something together for the neighborhood children.
And it doesn't have to be complicated. A few ideas:
Start by serving a warm lunch. A large pot of chicken noodle or vegetable soup would work well. A standard soup that many children will eat. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and use a cookie cutter for fun shapes like a snowflake!
Stock up on scarves, gloves, hats at places like the Dollar Tree. The Dollar Tree frequently has 2 pairs of gloves for $1. For next to nothing, you can fill a basket with extras for when it's time for a change from wet items.
Stock up on supplies for a snowman. Buttons, carrots, pull some sticks for arms, etc. Also, clean out your closet and provide the children with some clothing for Frosty then donate when you're finished.
While you're at the Dollar store, stock up on squirt bottles. Fill with water and a few drops of food coloring and children can "paint" the snow.
