Jack's Minion Party Review

Jack had his 4th Birthday at the local Bowling Alley, 15 kids with balls, pins and slick floors...sure had a ton of laughs!  We had a great time, this year was not very DIY, although I did have adorable cupcakes and cookies were brought to school prior, (both made by a friend).  I did make the invites and thank yous myself, and Tim made the bowling pin which we had the kids sign at the party.   Just a quick summary of Jack's Party and ideas if anyone is looking for things to do with Minions. theproctorfam.com
FAVORS:

Check out my post here about Kiwi Crate's favors.  We loved the Wand and Rockets for boys and girls. 

CUPCAKES/COOKIES:
A friend made these for Jack's classroom and then party.  She is so talented, and if anyone is in Dutchess or Putnam and would like her info, please email me.

SUPPLIES:
I had the pleasure of reviewing party supplies from Oriental Trading for Jack's upcoming 4th Birthday Party.  They have supplied for over 80 years unique and fun favors, toys, party supplies, crafts and novelties for tons of occasions.  As the Nation's Largest Retailer it should be your first stop when in need of supplies.   Have you looked yet?  Besides birthday parties, as a teacher it is also great for supplies, classroom decorations, rewards and teaching tools.

This year Jack decided he wanted a MINION party, you know those little yellow dudes with their own language, 1 or 2 eyes, and work for Gru in Despicable Me 1 & 2.   Oriental Trading had everything Minion related: cups, plates, napkins, balloons, banners, table decor, table cloths, tattoos, stickers, and other favors.   Even in the Pinterest era we live in, buying the basics through Oriental Trading first is fast, easy and leaves you with time to work on your crafts still.

Oriental Trading has great quality, shipping and customer service.   They are always offering specials, such as discounts and free shipping to save you money.  We all know shopping with kids is never an easy task, but shopping online is.  I know it is for me!  Join their mailing list and request a catalog today!
