My Neighborhood Rally was a Blast and I couldn’t have done it without the help of some very kind friends, family, neighbors and companies with BIG Hearts!
Putting this together was a labor of love! I love to throw parties, I get very excited about all the little details right down to choosing the napkins, and well some (my husband) mightsay I tend to go over board. But that is what being Savvy and Sassy is all about! Giving a 110% , doing it with style, a little bit of flare, keeping it organized, making it look easy and of course looking good while doing it:)
So without further Ado let me stand up and say Thank You to the people who helped make this a Smashing Success!
My daughter McKenna, Abby and Kristie who helped bake 150 chocolate chip cookies! We set up Bake Sale that day and we placed 3 cookies in each bag and they were sold for $1 and I am pleased to say she SOLD OUT!
which means her Bake Sale helped to raise 350 meals
Glimmer Body Art for impressing kids and even the adults with their Glitter Tattoo’s! All the kids went WILD for these and the line was well werth the wait. And no these are not just for girls, there are plenty of snakes, dragons, skulls and cross bones for the boys to sport some glitter and feel like a bad boy too! They also were able to giv e me a discount which was very much appreciated! GlimmerBodyArt
Sassy Apron the adorable apron my daughter is wearing was made by SassyApron she made a mother and daughter set for us!
So what were some of the other Fun Activities that went on?
We set up 2 craft tables, one for Dot Art and the other for jewelry making. Dot Art is the best no mess craft station for any party, no spills, gooey mess, stains on clothing , or clean up. Kids can create any picture on plain paper or you can buy the picture books that have pictures to fill in with the dots.
There was a Bounce House, which I forgot to place the order for so when I called to confim (4 hours before the event) I was told my order didn’t exsisted. Just a small oversight – and they couldn’t get me something by 2:00. So I called another company and they were able to deliver one just in the nick of time! Of course the only one they had left was a bright pink floourescent castle, not my first choice but I said “l’ll take it!”
