My husband is the Associate Youth Minister at our church. He's in charge of all those crazy high schoolers and he is great at it. I also enjoy working with those lovable drama queens, however, my scene is more of those hyper-active yet painfully shy middle schoolers. I run the EDGE program and it's a lot of fun. It's hard work! But tons of fun too.
This year for our big kick off event, I decided to plan something with a carnival theme. Growing up in Texas our parish had this amazing church carnival every year. It was seriously awesome. So it makes me sad that more churches don't do that here in Tucson! Anyway...so I'm bringing a bit of the carnival to my middle schoolers.
Picking out/planning the decor has been fun. There are still a few DIY projects to tackle but those will come later. Here are my five Lovely Links for this Monday. These items will be filling the church hall come September!
For the walls! These are just way too much fun. It's like, they capture the essence of a clown without being terrifying. Found these from EverydaysBeautiful.
Rosette center pieces! Going to use these on the food and game tables. The kids can take these home too! You know, since they need more junk in their room... haha. Sorry parents.
Photo booth back drop! I want the kids to take some crazy pictures! I say this with love... middle schoolers awkward. These photos will be awesome.
Some sweet photo booth props from Party Goodies.
Finally my favorite piece of party decor! I love these garlands so much. I want to hang them everywhere!!! For now, I will settle to hang them at the EDGE kick off. There are so many gorgeous colors at StudioMucci.
I'll make sure to take pictures of the kick off so you can see the final project!
