How about the fact that I couldn't just have solid colored boring balloons. I opted for the cow print balloons from Hobby Lobby (HL). They were only $1.99 for 8 balloons. That's a steal, right? We dropped them off at Party City to have them filled up the day before the big shindig.
Being the cheap woman that I am, I didn't want to spend $2-3 on weights for the balloons so I wrapped a can of tuna in some scrap fabric, tied it with twine and then tied bunches of balloons to them. Easy, breezy, beautiful. (Should have been in the previous post, but oh well.)
We bought stick on mustaches, sheriff badges, a couple of bandannas, fake tattoos, and a couple of cowboy hats so people could spice up their wanted posters.
Since the weather cleared up, we were able to use the patio. For $2.99 I picked up a package of ceiling swirlies. I don't think that is their technical term, but it works. They were an inexpensive way to bring the party outside.
This concludes party two. Up next, Favor-fave. I know. I know. I promise not to make any more Flavor Flav references ever again. You're welcome.
