Our Transformers "Brinner" Party11:56 PM
Have you ever had "brinner" at your house (breakfast for dinner?) We love this meal idea, and it also makes a super party treat. When we needed to do something special but affordable for a group birthday at our house, we chose pancakes for supper!
We also headed to Walmart to check out their selection of party supplies. I was under the impression that the selection would be either too expensive or very limited. I was wrong on both counts. We found lots of licensed options for our party; I wanted Phineas and Ferb, but my 4-year-old talked me into Transformers. (It think it was because of the Optimus Prime masks and hats, actually.)
We also found a nice selection of items for the VERY budget conscious. There were entire decor kits for just $4 which were generic enough for any age of birthday guest.
We took our hats, plates, napkins, tablecloth, decorations, masks, and party favors home to enjoy with pancakes, sausage, and, of course, ice cream! We had a great time, and it all cost less than $25 for our family of 7 to enjoy a very special birthday.
If you aren't super-creative and need a ready-to-go assortment of products for your next party, you'll likely find it in-store. They also have portable balloon helium tanks, piñatas, and cake and cupcake decorating products.
Here is a video recap of our fun (note that the baby got a bit cranky at the end.)
