One of the most fun things I get to do during the year, is decorate for our basketball banquet.  It will be here on Saturday!  We do a semi-casual banquet that’s catered.  I get to decorate and every year I try to do it different.  This year we are on a very limited budget, so I have to be very creative.  It went from $150 to $50.  Yikes!  Did I mention I plan for about 120 people?

Last night I made new table numbers and they are so cool!table numbers  I don’t know if this picture gives them justice.  But they are really cool!  I’m also redoing the menus that we set out at the buffet line.

For decorations this year, here’s the plan.

  • White paper table cloths (already have)
  • Black runner down the center of the table.
  • Basketball scrapbook papers in cheap ($1) frames in the center to be the base of the balloon centerpieces.
  • Table numbers
  • On top of the runners I’m going to print out 3×5” pictures from the season and scatter them down the runner.
  • Tons of balloons everywhere!

Anyway, that’s the plan.  We’ll see what happens!
