When I throw a party, or do anything really, necessity is truly the driving force behind the creative process. I couldn’t round up the 20 chairs I needed for the kid’s table, so I put the table on a couple of paint buckets to raise it off the floor.
Since the kids were going
Admittedly, one of the more labor intensive things I did for the frog prince’s party was make 20 little lily pads for the kids to sit on at their table. I upcycled an old duvet cover; I dyed it green, then sewed, stuffed and painted the tops of these little gems. The good news is that they were enjoyed far beyond the party, as the birthday boy really enjoys rolling around like a little pig in mud in the piles of them.
