Barn Party


 
One of the other things I really love to do is decorate, and plan parties. I know, I know…another thing on the list. My husband asked me the other day if I was striving to be the next Martha, ugh, no….While she is an inspiration with her many, many talents…I don't want to be anyone but me. I just do what I do, I like what I like, no other explanation. I'm glad I have a wide range of hobbies, because I don't know what else I would do since I get bored easily.  Maybe I'm wired a differently. Who knows.

 

This farm party was my favorite. Can you guess what I used for hay???

 
 

A hula skirt!

 

My sons birthday is in the summer and I searched high and low to find real hay but came up short. My last resort was the dollar store. The minute I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for simulating hay. Clever, huh?

 

I was lucky when planning this farm party. I found everything at the dollar store. When I'm planning a party (once a year…lol!) I always stop at the dollar store first because I usually can find everything I need without spending an arm and a leg.
