Project Celebration Boxes!

As I have been reorganizing around the house I was trying to find a place to store the party decorations from Danya's birthday party. What do you do with these things?! When we went to drop off Danya's gift last fall, we talked to a patient rep who said that they often throw parties for the kids for their birthdays and for final Chemo and many other moments that deserve something special. So I started thinking and I wrote an email to the representative to find out what their needs were. She said that often they can't give the kids a real personalized party because they don't have a lot of options on hand. Upon reading her e-mail I really felt like God was confirming and encouraging me to mobilize the troops and do this thing. Our MOPS group started brainstorming ideas today. Our plan is to take plastic shoe boxes and put together themed party items so that when they need to throw a party they will take the items they need and then put the decorations and such back in and us it for the next one. We'll laminate banners and such so that they can be cleaned and used over and over again.
There are some No Nos to keep in mind.




Ideas of what to put in the boxes:

Party Blowers
Plastic Clapping hands
Paper Streamers
Crafty items
Table Cloth

These are the themes we are going to start with, If you want to put together a whole box choose your own theme and go ahead!
* Princess Box
* Thomas
* Sesame Street
* Music Theme
* A day at the Spa
* Animals / Zoo Theme
* Super Heros (any and all)
* Cheetah Girls / Hannah Montana

The Snap-N-Style dolls I mentioned before will be going in with this gift. Can't wait to see what we can do when we work together!
