I’m throwing the first of many birthday parties this weekend and since it’s kinda Cracker Jack themed, I’ve been stocking up on red and white supplies. I have no idea what I’m doing with all of it yet but I’m sure inspiration will strike an hour or so before the party (isn’t it crazy how things always work out that way?) I got the baker’s twine (swoon), the polka dot packaging tape and striped ribbon in the holiday discount bin at Micheal’s. The paper everything is sitting on is meant for scrapbooking. I may not be one of you scrapbook crazies but I sure do love your products!
I’ll be making some homemade “Cracker Jack” to give out as favors and I’m still trying to figure out packaging options. I would loooove to find some glassine bags but I’m afraid I’ve backed myself into somewhat of a time crunch. No way I’m going to have time to order them, receive them in the mail and still have time to fill them with popped yumminess. Anyone know where I can possibly get some locally? My back-up plan is to use bags that look similar to these. Jim thinks they’re a perfect fit but I worry that they look too carnival-y. We’ll see, I’ll probably talk more about the grown-up favors later this week.
Tomorrow, I’ll post about the favors for the babies that will be joining us!
