A Hippie Party
My daughter would have been a wonderful flower child, had she been born in the sixties instead of 2000, so it was no surprise when she told me that she wanted a "hippie/groovy" theme for her eleventh birthday party. Like any good mother, I took her to the party store and bought the themed paper goods: plates, napkins, cups, table cloth, etc. We also thought an enjoyable and theme-appropriate activity would be to tie-dye bandannas. Off to the craft store we went, in search of plain white bandannas and tie-dye materials. On the invitations, we told the children to come in sixties-themed clothing.The kids had a great time, and the tie-dyeing wasn't as messy as we had thought it would be. The tie-dyed peace-sign cake that my niece made was also a big hit. I took a lot of pictures, and I made the two-page layout below with some of them.
