So last week I couldn't decide what to do for the OP's birthday/ goodbye party. I asked for ideas and my bloggy friends came through. Yes you did! Short Mama from Family of Shorts mentioned Wizard of Oz and I went crazy. INSANE really! I loved that idea. I love parties. No no - I love planning parties. I go NUTS! I get all elaborate. The child in me comes out and there's no stopping her. Wizard of Oz is a fabulous idea, thanks Short Mama! Not only do I LOVE the Wizard of Oz but it's perfect, you see, because this is not just a birthday party but this will be the last time the OP sees all her friends before we move. She is leaving the Land of Oz or as I so endearingly call it the Land of Nowhere to go to our new home. So the munchkins will have to say goodbye at the end of the party. "There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home" Way cool right? You know what else is cool? This Invitation I made (with the help of some friends): Oh ya! Check it out. It is called a waterfall card. A friend turned me on to it - you can find instructions for it here. It really is quite easy. Mine is different because we had to incorporate the Wizard of Oz theme or the Emerald City (thanks Torey) but Voila:
and here is a video:
What do you think? I am so so excited (so is the OP). You can't tell, right?
Now if I could only get that Lady Di to come for a visit so she can put her talents to use and make my house cake with little witch legs sticking out! Hint, Hint Lady Di! Come on you know you want to! I'll even let you dress up as Glinda the Good Witch. That's right folks - costumes. I told you the little girl in me comes out.
If you have any ideas for games, food or anything else. Please share. I already have a scavenger hunt planned for the Tin Man's heart, the Scarecrow's diploma and the lion's badge of courage. A broomstick relay is in the works too. So fun.
