Party Recap

Our Kids turned 5 and 2 this year, on the 5th & 6th of October. I said I would never put their parties together, but since our 5 year old picked a boys theme, I let it go this year! The weather was perfect for our haunted house, a hunt for the marshmallow man, and eating outside! We followed with cake and presents inside when it got dark. The kids had a great time, and I think the parents had just as much fun!

    I actually found the plates at an estate sale, a lady had kept tons of party supplies and they were unopened and in perfect condition from the late 80s! I have seen some on Ebay though, so you might want to try there.

    I had purchased the backdrop at Party City (in-store) in their Halloween Section (which would be stocked right now if they are carrying it this year).

    I made them. I have the file, but since my computer is different now, the font's aren't the same. It's an indesign file - if you're familiar with it, I can send it to you.

    Sorry! Disregard that last comment! I fixed them...if anyone would like to send me their email I'll send you a pdf of the labels. Just put "slime labels" in the subject line.
