Back in June I bought some luau decorations at the dollar store. My mother teased me mercilessly, but that’s okay,
I’m used to it. Despite the hit to my self esteem (ha!), picking up the luau decorations seven months in advance really proved to be a prudent thing to do. Have you ever tried to find luau decorations in January? Honestly, I’m sure it’s *possible*, but I didn’t even have to try to locate any because I used my wits and thought ahead. Thinking ahead saved me a headache or two and also the potential for Caroline to resort to having a princess or Dora party instead. You can find princess and Dora stuff all year round. However, to a soon-to-be-nine-year-old-non-girly-girl, either a princess or Dora themed party would be tragic.
You can laugh all you want, but I think I’ve proven that sometimes being neurotic can be a good thing.
In preparation for the big party, we practiced making tissue paper flowers last night.
I like to do some sort of crafty project to keep the girls entertained.
I know I mentioned earlier that we’ll be painting initial letters, but I thought it would be fun to have two projects.
The flowers turned out pretty cute. I didn’t pay a super amount of attention to every detail, so they’re not perfect, but they are still colorful and fun.
I think the girls will have fun making them, too.
