In prepping for Claire’s party, I have spent $0.00 on party decorations.
Thanks to my trusty printer, standard household and craft supplies, and the wonderful world of free printables, I am decorating Claire’s “Gingerbread House” party for zero clams!
As I have mentioned in a previous post, I don’t like to go overboard with children’s parties. This is especially true with decorations. I love a good, themed party, but feel guilty about the cost and wastefulness. Below are the free printables I found online that I am using for our party. Although I am hosting a “Gingerbread ‘House’ Party”, the theme colors are red, ‘hot’ pink (Claire’s favorite), and aqua.
So, that is where I am in my party preparations. I have “miles to go before I sleep”. I swear the cleaning is never-ending in my home. I can’t wait until 3:00 p.m. Sunday when this party is done. Of course, it is all worth it to me, as I will see my little girl enjoy celebrating her birthday with beloved family and friends.
