Another Wednesday night with the girls....this weeks theme is "My Favorite Things." I asked each of the girls to bring one of their favorite things (under $5 and in triplicate) to the party to share. After explaining why it was one of their favorite things, you chose 3 names and shared your item.
This is a great way to introduce new things and what is better than a recommendation from one of your girlfriends! My contribution to the party was E.L.F. is a great way to inexpensively experiment with new make-up colors and styles....everything is $1! So I put together a grab bag and 3 of the girls were able to choose 5 items.
Here is what I took home from the party...SELF Magazine, lip gloss, sharpies and local mango honey.
So it is time for the kiddos to head back to school - here are some cute ideas for them to share with their classmates and teachers!

For your teachers...

For your classmates:

So this week's theme was "All Things Mini" 
So here is out creative "potluck mini menu":
Fish Tacos in Wonton Cups
Mini Grilled Tomato and Cheese Sandwiches
Mini Sausage Balls
Mini Pecan Tarts
Mini Calamansi Tarts
Mini Banana-Nilla Pudding Bites
I am so fortunate to be a Make A Wish volunteer! Here are the party favors for a special 4 year old boy's wish - a Cars themed birthday party
Each bag included a CARS beach ball, Pez dispenser, water bottle, candy and fruit snack
How about dressing up your cake pops with a beautiful sail for your next nautical party!
These are great for place card holders or buffets label...inexpensive and can 
be customized to your event's theme
Make pretty place card holders from home store finials. If the finials have a dowel at the base, snap off the dowel using pliers. Use a handsaw to cut a slit for a card, and sand the finials smooth. Paint in fun colors. Set out extras to display photos 
This is so easy and can be made for any letter or number. I cut out a rough sketch of a #2 on poster board. I then used my 2" hole punch to cut out circles from coordinating paper to the party's theme. It turned out great....such a big impact for such a little amount of time and money!

Catch My Party chose Jacob's 2nd Birthday as a "featured party"
 So excited that Jacob's 2nd Birthday Party was featured at Simply Captivating Events!
