This post is much-needed! I am so sorry about not posting & being on here. I have been so swamped with things to do. I have been helping people out & the holiday… All in one! So, I am very sorry.
I will be picking up slack :) That is something good, right? I have missed you all! I hope I never get this busy again!
On to the party. On February 3, 2013, I was one of the lucky ones to have been picked to host this party. I did mine on the day of the Super Bowl. Which might have been my downfall. We will get into that later though.
There is this great site called Crowdtap. & I won’t go much into this because I am going to make a post on it! But, in summary, it is a site where you can do questions, earn points, parties, samples, discussion, & more.
There are rules & things to these parties! & you win things for doing more. I love that part. I invited tons of people to this party. Facebook friends, family, friends, etc. But only my true, few showed up. I am grateful to them.
I planned this party rather quick. I was having so much fun doing it, that I didn’t really think of it as party planning. Me & my daughter shopped & made things for hours!
CrowdTap sent me the information through my email. I used most of their suggestions & created things! We made the food they suggested. We had Scream Cheese Dip with Doritos & Fritos. & Green Sludge Punch to drink. They were both really a big HIT !
Me & my daughter got to spend quality time together during this time. We decorated cheap styrofoam cups. We made monsters & things on them for the guests. This was one of my daughter’s favorites! All the kids got to decorate valentines cards.
My daughter gave her card to mommy & daddy :) She is so sweet. We all chatted for a while & hung out. Let the kids play.
Then we settled down to watch the movie! I cannot say how awesome this movie was enough! I really enjoyed it! Actually everyone did. From the babies to the oldies :)
Answers to some of the questions:
- Mavis makes the cutest little sad bat face to her dad Dracula. Does your little one have a look that just makes you want to do whatever they say? MY DAUGHTER DOES DO A “FACE” :) SHE LOWERS HER HEAD & MAKES HER LIPS QUIVER! AND IT GETS ME EVERYTIME!
- Dracula throws an awesome 118th birthday party for Mavis. Were there elements of her party that you wish you could have for your own birthday party or your child’s party? I WOULD LOVE TO THROW A MONSTER PARTY! MY DAUGHTER, NOT SO MUCH! SHE IS INTO PRINCESS & MINNIE! BUT, IT WOULD BE REALLY AWESOME TO HAVE A BAND OF MONSTERS PLAYING & MUMMIES WALKING AROUND SERVING DRINKS :)
- Both Mavis & Dracula have some awesome vampire powers. For example, they can both turn into bats.Which one of their powers do you wish you could have? WHILE TURNING INTO A BAT WOULD BE PRETTY AWESOME. I HAVE TO SAY THE MEMORY ERASING POWER THAT DRACULA HAS WOULD BE THE BEST OPTION FOR ME! :) THAT WOULD BE A SWEET POWER!
Overall, we all had a very nice time. & gave the kids time to play with each other. It was a get together we all needed!
I just wanted to say thank you to CrowdTap for choosing me to host this wonderful party! & say thanks to everyone who came :)
I hope you all enjoyed reading about my very first hosted party :) I really had a blast doing this! I cannot wait for another one :)
