new: fotess birthday bash swap
FOTESS stands for Friends of the Earth Simple Swaps. You must be a member of the group in order to participate in this swap. If you would like to find out more about joining the group, contact Jeanne or Shirley (or ask a question on this thread and we'll get you connected)!
(birthday box or birthday bag)
Answer these questions and post them on the thread. This way we'll get to know a little bit more about each other. This is not supposed to be intimidating, just FUN! Even if you would rather skip the Swap part, feel free to post answers to the questions (please).
1. If you were planning your own party, what would your favorite themes be? (list 5)
2. Favorite birthday experience, tradition or gift.
3. If you could choose any birth date, what date would you choose? Why?
If you want to sign up for the swap, here's what we're doing!
Since we all have different birthdays this is a way we can all celebrate them! You get to send a Birthday in a Box (or envelope). Imagine what they would like, what you like--creativity encouraged. Of course upcycling is always applauded.
Star Wars Birthday in a Bag
Star Wars napkins, 1 pkg.
Princess Leia doll, 4" tall
Star Wars plastic table cover
6 red balloons
6 black balloons
1 pkg. Texas STAR seeds (Star Wars--Texas Star...see the connection?)
Hint: Please try to include 1 package of seeds that goes along with the theme!
Make your own confetti or table trimmers. Mix up and place in a little baggie.
Have 3 Barney invitations left from a kids party? Use that to start your Birthday in a Box!
When I get my Birthday In A Box I'm going to have a party. Even though it's nobody's birthday in my home at the time, we're going to decorate and enjoy during our evening meal just to have fun and do something different! Don't pack your Birthday in a Bag away and forget it. Enjoy it!
Sign up date: Feb. 6
