prepping for a party

It’s looking like bad weather outside, rain hopefully turning to snow soon. What I want to do is curl up with a blankey and a cup of tea but instead…  I plan the Footloose Preference pre-party, which is also fun but a little more like work.

Gathering up party supplies…
… must haves for a Footloose party: disco ball (at least one but more is better), glitter stars, twinkle lights and a few other fun things thrown in.

Incidentally, here’s a remake of Footloose 58 different scenes from 58 different directors. Looks very entertaining, wallpaper for the party?

Off to make glitter stars, cassette tape place cards and set up for tomorrow!

Behind the scenes, a How-To.

    It looks so fun!! I love the mirror balls. We have one about that size hanging in the den and Rocket just stares and stares at it when he’s in there – he could be a real dancer when he gets bigger!

      You gotta have a disco ball… at least one.
