  1. Kids birthdays
    So for DD's 9th Birthday she wanted a harry potter birthday party so I thought I would share some of the stuff we did for those who may be looking at having one. When the kids came in I had Harry potter movie them playing on my mp3 player. I had the speaker hidden under a witches hat. We did...

    Hormel This is really awesome. Click on the table and you get all kinds of choices, from recipes, to lighting, to decoration templates, to sounds of creaking doors and chains rattling. Shame we don't celebrate halloween.

  5. Christmas
    If you work outside the home (or if your spouse works outside the home), do you have a Christmas party through your employer? The water utility I work at has a potluck for all employees plus board members. I am taking a cream cheese appetizer with wheat thins, blt cups, and pumpkin spice...
  6. Kids birthdays
    DD is turning 14 this month. For her birthday, I'm splurging on the party and paying for her and 8 friends to do rock climbing at an indoor rock climbing facility. This alone is going to cost me about $200. We will also provide pizza, drinks, and cake for the party. Now my dilemma. It has...

    It's dds birthday next weekend and her party is from 11-2, what are some ideas for food that won't break the bank. I was planning hot dogs, a pasta salad, chips, fruit tray, veggie tray, and then cake/ice cream. But there's going to be anywhere from 40-60 people there I'll know more this weekend...
  8. Meal planning
    Just a small thirty-one party here for about 15 people and normally I can think of things to serve just fine but have been so busy I haven't even had time to think. It will be at 6 so I probably need something a little more than appetizers but not sure what I want to serve. We have shredded...
  9. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    Party Store - the card outlet and party sup0ply store - has Halloween costumes, including for adults, on clearance for $5. Unless you insist on the latest, this might be an opportunity.

    This is the invitation that my parents received for the Royal Garden party. The quality isn't all that great but it is readable.

    My parents have been invited to a Garden Party at Holyrood Palace near Edinburgh where they will meet the Queen. They were flabbergasted! My dad's typical reaction was, if she (the Queen) thinks I'm driving all that way just for a cup of tea with her, she's got another think coming. My mom of...
  12. Kids birthdays
    DS5 is a SuperHero fanatic. So, he's asked for a SuperHero themed party. He only invited 5 little friends and we're having it at home, so I don't need to go nuts, but I have 5 5-year old boys coming over for an hour and a half. I plan on doing "pin the mask on Batman" and we're getting a...

    My daughter had to do a "rock project" for her science class and of course waited until the last minute to tell me so that meant we couldn't do a kick butt volcano. Instead we made treasure rocks with a bouncy ball hidden inside for each of her classmates to break open :) This recipe costs a...

    My DH is heading out of town for business this afternoon and won't be returning till Friday. So I'm hosting a party thread: If you could plan your own party, what would you throw yourself? Budget: Virtual Cost is no object :) Guests: Frugal Villagers Plan for theme, food, drinks...
  15. Frugal Living
    Any ideas? We have some friends who want to come over. DH is putting in a request for a chocolate cake with custard filling, or a Boston Cream Pie. Should be yummy! I know what I'll be baking Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon! I'm trying to think of a frugal, but celebratory menu to suit...
  16. Holidays-Special Occasions-Celebrations
    I will be having a grad party for my oldest in June. I am expecting anywhere between 50-80 people I think. I haven't had to do food for this many people since 2000! We are actually renting the Lions club for $75. It sounds ridiculous because we have 10 acres but we don't have room to park...
  17. Secondhand Shopping
    I just had to share this one. There is a small thrift shop in an upscale neighborborhood that I like to go to because they have some really nice items there. I found the perfect dress for my company Christmas party. It is a black silk dress with a heavily beaded bodice and chiffon skirt, and...

  20. Christmas
    We're going to a annual christmas party that a husband and wife couple are having. Last year was our first year going to their party. They are rather new friends to us. We've been hanging out with them a lot this past year and have grown close. We have actually been talking for the last 6 months...
