Party Recap

This was a quick and dirty lazer tag party for our 11 year old. This close after the holidays, it's a challenge to get a party together, but we did it by using the local lazer tag place, some pre-made printables and a little creative thinking. This is not the most professional looking party I have ever done, but I am posting it because I wanted to inspire those moms who feel like they can't dress up a party because it's not at home. I tried to go half way between doing nothing and going all out with personal touches.

January in Massachusetts is always a time when some good old fashioned movement is needed and welcomed. Lazer tag works great for this, and everyone had a fantastic time.

So the printables I mostly got from Family.com. I modified the invitation (http://family.go.com/printables/article-960519-tron-party-invitations-t/) to add our information digitally, and used the printables from Family.com for papercraft lightcycles (http://family.go.com/printables/article-917791-tron-3d-light-cycle-t/). We made the cake at home (obviously - LOL)!

If you are looking to use similar fonts the two fonts I used were OCR A Std which is an adobe font. You can find it here http://www.fontyukle.net/en/OCR+A+Std.ttf or something similar at http://www.fontsquirrel.com. The Tron font is called FLYNN and can be found at http://www.dafont.com/flynn.font. The two images I used (backdrop and candy bar wrapper) I just printed off the internet.

We hung up the banner in a hurry because we were running late and it looks hysterical, but the kids didn't care. I did not sweat the small stuff on this one.

The best part is that it was self-contained, built-in fun and games, came with a party helper and involved NO CLEANUP! Overall a relaxed and fun party!
