Water Party

I recently hosted my upcoming CC class for a fun afternoon of water games! I had been working on the ideas all summer and had hit up my Mom's amazing dollar store for some water games/goodies.

In the end, the most popular activities were water balloons (no picture - too chaotic!) and playing with the hose. Things got pretty energetic - and most of the games weren't even played in a group effort to just dump water out. But, all in all - I think everyone had fun!

The original inspiration for this party can be found here. I especially had fun doing the snack table and making it cute and pretty!

And, it is so fun to look at the vintage goodies and know they were either a generous gift or a very inexpensive find! The silver thermos jug was fifty cents at a thrift store this summer and red and white enamelware was $1 at a garage sale thanks to my Aunt! The Coke crate was a gift from a sweet friend (Thanks, Mel!) It is fun to be able to use these things and think of the sweet friends and family behind the gifts!
