Themes

Themes are fun!  Sometimes I keep the theme a secret and then have “goodie bags” for everyone to open on the Saturday morning and then it’s time to improvise!  Because we’re BIG on budget, the goodie bags are filled with non-expensive accessories.  Other times we plan the theme properly between us and it’s amazing to see how everyone contributes to make it great looking and fun! Occasionally, there has been no time to plan a theme properly, then we all just bring a hat or wig and wear it 🙂

Another fun part of having a theme is to plan the menu around it for a day.  When we had an “Indians and Cowboys” theme, we had breakfast with baked beans and bunny chows for lunch.  With our latest 80’s theme, we specifically bought the snacks that were popular in that era.
