Monopoly Birthday Party, sneak peek

Hi!
I thought I would stop by and show everyone what I am working on this week.
You see my oldest just turned 12 and we are having her party this coming weekend so we are busy, busy, busy.  Being a preteen now, she waned a "cool" party and came up with the idea of a Monopoly Birthday Party. 
Here is a peek at our "cool" Monopoly Birthday Party






Can you see the game pieces, houses and hotels hanging from the chandelier.

I love how they look like they are floating in the air.



The shoe, I love the shoe.....well all shoes.



I covered a lamp shade with money



and made subway art out of all the property names (did you notice it was glittery)




Here is our collection of goodies to give out as people land on each spot.


Sweet little rings for each time someone gets money from CHANCE or COMMUNITY CHEST.


Plastic horse for KENTUCKY AVENUE



Water ballons for WATER WORKS.


Glow sticks for the ELECTRIC COMPANY.


Brush for winning a beauty contest.



Train earsers for each of the RAILROADS.



We still have a few more tricks up our sleeves and I will share more pictures after the party.



Sit Relax and Read
