My...you are such a good looking person...and very kind...and generous...and the perfect size...and you absolutely DO.NOT.HAVE.BIG. THIGHS, they're perfect...for real...Angelina's legs WHAT??? they ain't got nothin on yours...and creativity...pinterest sminterest...if you had an extra hour in your day you could put the pins to shame...and talent, I mean seriously, how much can one person hold in their tiny little petite finger?? ;p
Was that the pick-me-up you needed this week? ;p
Sometimes we need someone that's not our husband/boyfriend, or sister or best friend to just tell us "you pretty much rock!" or just a "thank you" will suffice sometimes. ;p
That actually does lead me to what this post is about...
(said Mary Katherine Gallagher aka Superstar way)
One of my
2 readers Sonia Najera asked me for a centerpiece idea. Her daughters' elementary school was having a Daddy/Daughter dance (awww...how sweet) & the theme was "Daddy's Little Princess." She wanted to stay away from the Disney princess theme but they were on a very, very tight budget. This was an idea I thought of for her.
Glasses from Goodwill or
Old baby food jars, salsa jars and/or pasta sauce jars
Glitter of your choice
Glitter Glue (I'm sure you can use most glue for this but I used Martha Stewart's)
Start by covering the outside of your glass in glue. Try & make sure it's as even as possible.
Once you've glued your glass guzzle it in the glittery glitter.
I have this love of alliteration. It's a sickness.
You could sprinkle the glitter on but it worked faster for me to pour the glitter on a paper plate & start it rollin.
Rollin on the glitter...rollin...rollin....rollin on the glitter. These big glasses started shinin, yeah...they were lookin fine (an)...and they were rollin (I'm making up new words to Proud Mary). Sorry...I'm posting this way too late! ;p
Ta-da! :-) Now THAT's something Mary would be proud of. ;p
I used three different colors of glitter. The white one didn't give me that shimmer I really wanted but it still looked pretty grouped with the rest of them.
Those silver confetti pieces are actually made from foil!
I took a small piece of foil & folded it a couple times then used my hole punch to make the confetti.
I was kinda digging what I was left with! Wanna start a foil bracelet trend? ;p
I filled all the sparkly centerpieces or you could call them fairy dust centerpieces...whatever floats your shimmer, with candles.
They made the table feel really special & girly & princess-ey. :-)
So...there you have it people...a cheap & easy centerpiece idea.
I can't wait to share with you what I'm doing this weekend! :-) I'll give you a hint...I'm gonna need to dig out my gloves & scarf! (If you don't live in Atlanta...it's been quite a warm winter)
Couple o' things -
1) I'm on Twitter...I just found out that Carrie Underwood just joined so I don't feel like a complete behind the times loser. ;p It took me awhile. ;p You can follow Parties for Pennies @Parties4Pennies & my personal twitter @HeidiRew
2) Parties for Pennies has a facebook fan page! I know...swanky, swanky. ;p If you're sitting with some coffee & have an extra "mouse clicking" hand...you can "like" the page here.
Adios Partying Amigos!
