Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

I almost forgot to post about Lindsey's Oz party. Let me start off by saying, it was not one of my best many things went wrong. Charles was priming/painting every night, so we weren't able to get anything done outside....okay you get the gist.


My mom made all the character posters.....we used the tin man poster for Pin the heart on the Tin Man.
This table was a big hit...they made Glinda crowns and Tin Man hats.
The amazing cake Janice made for Lindsey....could that field of flowers or yellow brick road get any more perfect?
Ah, yeah....add the HOMEMADE rainbow sugar cookies! Thank you so much, Janice.

Madeline standing above the bounce house.... What would an Oz party be without the "rainbow candy", Skittles.
Cinnamon hearts(get it, Tin Man needed a heart)
Potato represent the straw.

A fruit rainbow that was gone pretty quickly. We also made monkey bread, yummy!

Do your best, bravest, strongest lion roar.

Yummm cake!

My FAVORITe they look like they are having fun or what?

Aren't those two cute kids?

Present time! She rec'd so many great gifts!

Once we saw her room, we knew she had a good time. She took down some of the cutouts and stuck them on her wall! They are still there today.

While it didn't turn out quite like I wanted........It was HUMID so they only bounced in short spurts, No balloons because of no helium, no Dunkin Donuts Munchkins(how clever was that?), totally forgot to play the soundtrack or movie(what?), Lindsey wouldn't let me do her hair Dorothy style, didn't have time to make chocolate hearts for the favor bags, could not find mini bags of Skittles for the favor bag, oh the list could go on and on.............................SHE had a great time and that is all that matters. Her friends had fun and it was so wonderful to see her as the little social butterfly. There is always next year!

Holy cow, if that is not one of your best parties, I would like to be at one of your best parties!!! You went all out. And had you not listed the things that went wrong at the end, nobody would have EVER known. I think it turned out fabulous.
BTW got your sweet comments. And the letters that I appliqued on Julia's backpack aren't from a pattern. I just straight cut them out. But if you want some letters, the ones that I used for your magnets are on Purl Bee.

What a great party!!!

I'm sure it was a huge hit. (I love the witch legs...SOOOO creative...and the 'over the rainbow' fruit -- so clever!)

Give yourself a big pat on the back for a job well done!

This looks like an amazing party, I can't imagine what your best parties must be like! You went to so much effort and had so many clever ideas. Wow!

You are absolutely brilliant! I think your party was probably more of a hit than you realize. Potato sticks for straw...ha, ha!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had a great time at my mother's house! (Home now...12 hours of driving and 625 miles later!)

I was just blog hopping and landed onto your site. What an amazing party. This could be published in a book. I love parties and this one looks fabulous! What a great memory
