Are You Ready??...

... to party with The Grinch??

Just a couple of shots of the Grinch Party we had last night.

We watched the movie, ate from the popcorn buffet ( a popped bag of popcorn per person and you top with whatever you want!!) and drank Grinch Punch (Sprite and lime sherbert) from Grinch cups that we got to take home!!

 I just gathered up anything green - napkins, plates, plastic serving containers, trees, etc and added the awesome Grinch cups I found at Wal Mart. I bought swirly candy cane straws at The Dollar Tree. A super easy party to prep for!

I painted the classic Grinch quote on a pre-cut smooth paneling board from Home Depot. It is about 30 x 40 and is less than $6.00. It has a great surface to paint on - a coat of primer and off you go- and is easy to transport because it's so much sturdier than foam core. Since it costs about the same thing as foam core I prefer to go with the board. It is thin and lightweight, too. You can paint over it if the prop isn't something you want to save.

 The Grinch in the box of Christmas wrapping trash is straight off Pinterest* ( I saw this project on Pinterest but it has been brought to my attention that it was not linked back to the originator's website. Please see the comments below to link back to the original website. I created mine from the picture on Pinterest and did not take credit for it but I'm sure the original instructions are very helpful) as was the idea for Grinch Punch.
 The Grinch from a milk jug - right up my alley!!! Wish I had thought of it :)

So, Merry Christmas to all you Whos in Whoville!!!

*Dear Mollie's Mom. I commented on the Milk Jug Grinch Craft you have up on your blog, but you didn't acknowledge my comment. The Milk Jug Grinch Craft was created by me and is up on my web site on this page:

You state that you got the idea from Pinterest, but Pinterest is not the source, my web site is the source and you must follow my copyright regulations which state that you must link back to my web site for the complete directions and give my site credit.

I spend a lot of time developing them and when people copy them and post them on blogs and don't give me credit I lose customers. Thanks
By the way, it came out great!
