This week has been crazy. I was out of the office yesterday due to Isaiah being sick. I had to take him to the doctor. I've been spending all of my spare time working on party stuff. Even though I started so early, I feel like it's coming down to the wire and I'm scrambling to get everything finished. Part of the reason is that I have too many ideas floating around in my head, and not enough time to finish all of them. I keep reminding myself that there are two more movies to premier, so I can always save things for an Eclipse Party or Breaking Dawn Party (can't wait for that one!!!). Every day this week, I had things I wanted to post, but here we are...it's FRIDAY! (way way early Friday for me...so pardon any grammatical errors) AND it's 6...six...SIX days away from New Moon!!! Woot!
I finally downloaded some pics of a few things I've been working on.
Like these fork arrangements...
I know they're a little different, but I really love the forks! What do you think? These were super easy and way cheap. I just bought some clay pots ($0.50/each), foam oasis ($1.50/each), gold forks ($1.99/24), and moss ($5.00/bag). Then I gathered some twigs to give the pots the "Forks" effect.
I just used my handy dandy hot glue gun and started putting the twigs around the pot, pushed the forks into place (after writing "I ♥ Forks" on them), and added some moss. In retrospect, I should have added the moss first. It was a little difficult getting it down in between the forks.
I'm also making these cute little pocket-size tissues for my goodie bags.
I just measured the tissues (8"x4 1/2" - in case you were wondering) and cut a piece of card stock that would wrap all the way around it. I then made creases at the folds, put a little dab of glue where the card stock meets, and embellished them with ribbon and some New Moon phrases/terminology. TA-DA!
One last thing I wanted to show you guys today...
Bookmarks. These were so easy. I went into Microsoft Publisher and used the bookmark template. I just started changing out the pictures and inserting text...and filling in the background (on some)...until I came up with a few I was pleased with. I think they turned out pretty cute. I was going to laminate them, but haven't...yet. I'll show you the final product, if I end up finding the time to laminate.
My goodie bags are going to include, but not limited to:
- Pocket Tissues (because, let's face it, we're all gonna cry when Edward leaves)
- New Moon Bookmarks
- plastic vampire fangs
- mini vampire teeth soaps
- pocket hand warmers (to represent Jacob's constant 108.6 degrees...He's HOT...literally)
- Ghiradelli's Twilight Delight chocolate squares
- New Moon chocolates
Tomorrow, I'll show you some of my other decorations, the menu, and what I've picked out for the candy bar. 6 DAYS!!!!
Hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Friday!!
