Angry Bird Party Prep

My hands are covered in glue. I HATE that feeling and it hits me.  “Ugh!  I’m pretty sure I said I was never making a pinata again a couple years ago. I can’t believe I forgot that.”

Hubby nods.  “I thought I remembered something like that.”

“What? Why didn’t you say anything?”

He just smiles.  He knows me so well.

I may not be any good at it but it’s still a fun result.  And for all my complaining, I’m glad that even if there’s no party budget I can still make our house a fun looking/silly place for a day (or two…or a week if I’m still too worn out to tear decorations down).

For the record, the pinata was going to be a pig but I couldn’t find green tissue paper. All the green streamers were sold out too! What is up with that?!  But we’ll work with it… instead of hitting the pig with birds, the pigs (i.e. tennis balls) will wage a war right back until the candy all falls out.I still have to blow up balloons (and put faces on them), put together the cardboard boxes in the garage, and paint some eggs gold.  Okay, truth is I get just as excited as my kids during the planning stage.  Hope I see some great smiles tonight!

On a planning note, I discovered that a lot of those great ideas I saw on pinterest used templates from the Party Animal Blog.  She has some amazing printables for you party planning moms. She rocks!

    I am so impressed! That pinata looks awesome! I love the line about not remembering to not do a project until you are in the middle of it. Happens to me all the time! I am a complete failure as far as parties go so I am going to have to check out The Party Animal!

  • That is one handsome looking bird… I would never even attempt to make a pinata, much less successful like this one.. Kudos to you!!
