If there is one thing I love to do, its plan parties! I'd make a career out of it if I could. Its the most fun stress can be! So when my friend asked me to plan her baby shower, I was honored! I had to tell her we couldn't afford to pay for it, especially with less than a month to plan it. Her theme is hot pink and zebra stripes, which isn't very cheap. She gave me $150 and I've already spent $50 on a big sister sash, something she really wanted her DD to have, 2 zebra striped table runners (I can get hot pink tablecovers from the dollar store to put under the runners, making it cheaper than buying hot pink and zebra striped tablecovers), cards for guests to fill out writing their guesses or the baby's birthday, height/weigt, first words, etc, and balloons. This cost me $10 in shipping but I've not seen this stuff in the stores.
I have $100 left to buy a few props for games, prizes for games and the wine basket for the diaper raffle, food, plates, napkins, cups and probably a few more decorations. My friend said she'd give me more money if needed it but I want to make this stretch! She's having a baby, she shouldn't go broke for her shower lol.
Wish me luck! I really wanna pull this off!
