Have you ever been setting up for a party, only to realize you forgot something? Something important?
What do you do? I'm not gonna lie...most times I kinda panic at first then stuff an extra cupcake in my mouth (because usually I don't eat much the day of a party & because carbs + sugar always help you feel better ;p).
Last weekend, I threw a birthday party for my husband. I can't show you the pictures yet (hopefully soon). But I forgot to make sure I had something to hold the food labels. Ugh...party foul. But you know me, I like to take party fouls & turn them into party fun.
So, I grabbed two things I had around the house -
A Bottle Cap & A Paper Clip
* I spray painted the bottle cap silver & let it dry
* Took my trusty glue gun & glued the paper clip to the bottle cap so it was upright.
If this wasn't a last minute project I think I would've spray painted the little glue hump too. ;p
So put away your wallet!
Don't spend money on those menu card holders...or even place card holders...just start saving your bottle caps. We usually buy Mexican coke bottles from Costco (it isn't made with the high fructose corn syrup) so we have quite a storehouse of bottle caps. ;p
Have you ever forgotton something for a party you were throwing?
