The twins and I went shopping today for supplies for our Chinese New Year themed party this weekend, but we did not have a lot of success. We know what we are doing food wise, but I need help with the decorating. This party is just for the family, but I like to have things looking festive anyway to put us in the mood.
So we went to the dollar store and the party store to buy some Chinese lanterns, but we didn't find any :/ This past summer I saw tons of lanterns and I kept telling myself I should buy some, but neglected to.
Luckily, I found this really neat folding paper lantern tutorial here, so the twins and I will be making some of our own tomorrow. Now I just need to come up with more ideas for decorating. Have any?
When I told the twins that we were going to go with a Chinese New Year theme they were hesitant at first, but only because they thought that this meant that we would not be celebrating the Chinese New Year in Chicago like we do every year. No worries though, because I love any excuse to take them to the city for some fun!
