Party Recap

I planned my own party to celebrate my 50th birthday. I thought the hillbilly theme would be a lot of fun to plan and it was great! Everyone came dressed in hillbilly attire and really got into the theme. The games were especially a big hit and worth a million laughs. The food was kept simple and picnic like and party favors were fly swatters with thank you notes attached. Decorations included a wash line hung with plenty of coveralls and underwear with holes in them, etc. Picnic tables were decorated with red and white checked table cloths and mason jar flower arrangements. I gave prizes for the winners of the games. I made t-shirts for "Fryin' Pan Toss Champion" and "Cheeto Head Champion" by using clipart from the internet and computer transfers that you iron on the t-shirt.
