With limited funds and the never ending of two birthdays smacked in the middle of two holidays. We decided this year to put the two birthdays together for a grand celebration. We are opting for a carnival them party. My father in law recently passed away and was soo looking forward to come to the party so we will have to make this the grandest one so he can see it from way up in heaven. Oh did I mention I only have a budget of $200 (what I normally spend on one party so I may have to go over a little) to include food, drinks, prizes, planning, etc.
I have some ideas so far....
Camera Booth---Cardboard box lined with fabric
Strike alley-Coke bottles painted white with stripes
