parties from the bookshelf

November 4, 2010

Using You Can’t Take a Balloon Into the Metropolitan Museum as party inspiration provides the perfect excuse to fill your space with big round yellow balloons!  Not that you needed an excuse.  Add some traditional NY street flair, a few easels and paint kits and a security guard repeating the phrase, “No flash,” and you’ve got the perfect Met set-up.

Each of these keeps getting better! Great job, Melanie. Love the idea of the kids easels, and the street food.
