Alright, this is my last & final post on the boys' Uglydoll Party (here, here and here in case you missed the other posts). Since the party was held off site at the Laser Tag place I had very little control over the decor of the space. In general the party room was pretty bland even if you did happen notice the random "gear and splatter paint" mural on the walls. I had planned to bring in my own plates, cups, etc. to carry the color palette and I am glad I did. The last-minute $1 table cloths were key to giving the space some much needed cheer. In addition to the coordinating dining gear, each place setting had an *Uglydoll M&M Tube*. The kids loved these and there was much happy chatter about their new U&U's moniker. I will definitely make these again for future parties as they were so easy and well received! See down below for the how-to instructions...
Here is a look at the improved tablescape...
Every laser tag party should have at least one fun prize...
Custom M&M Tube How To:
Step 1 - Print out your design on regular white office paper and cut out. You should be able to fit six designs per 8.5x11 sheet of paper.
Step 2 - Remove the original plastic label from each tube. This is something the kids can help out with (you may need to help them get started). Hint: You do not need to get every piece f the original wrapper off.
Step 3 - Using regular scotch tape, tape one end of your custom label to the tube.
Step 4 - Place a piece of double sided tape across the width of the other end of the label (on the inside). Roll the label smoothly around the tube and press firmly on the end with the double sided tape to secure.
Step 5 - Enjoy!
So easy, right? The hardest part is coming up with the design, but if you are like me you will probably enjoy that part the most.
