|My neighbor Carol and I decided to have a cul-de-sac party for Halloween but the dilemma was that there was not a single cent from the Social Committee funds left over from the Labor Day party. |
The challenge: ONLY spend $25 each
|I was in charge of decorations so of course I was going to make the tissue paper pom poms, seen at Doak's baby shower, to hang from tree to tree.|
tip: I bought 3 packs of 20 and only used 5 sheets per pom pom to make a total of 12 pom poms. Most instructions online say to use 15 to 20 sheets but I don't think it is necessary. The ones I made are full enough and you save on tissue paper.
|I used a paper clip in the center of the accordion fold and hung them with raffia.|
Super easy, super cheap, and super cute!
|Johnna's thrift store Amelia costume, my apron, her gloves.|
I had both Superwoman and Superman from years previous and found Doak's at a thrift store.
Total cost for costumes this year... $1!!!!!!!!
|Super baby flying!|
|Notice the table full of Pumpkin Ale... so good!|
|Carol and I...|
|Neighborhood Social Committee|
Add it to the resume, haha!
|Super and Wonder Woman unite!|
|Candy and prizes for the kids costumes!|
note: All from the Dollar Store
|Adult Prize Winner- Bag/Cat Lady|
$25 Gift Card to Olive Garden
note: The only thing she bought was cats, glued to her night gown, from the Dollar Store, and a wig. Creative and funny!
|Everyone brought something to add to the Potluck party... that way no one is stuck paying a ton of money for food and beverages.|
|And a TON of food was donated from a Martin's Grocery Store that one of neighbors works at in the area. So awesome!|
|Super baby curl|
|Sleepy baby... after partying all day.|
