Last summer just before we moved I had a "Farewell Party" for my daugther. It was one last chance after school had let out to see her friends before we took off for the Gulf Coast.
I decorated as a I would for a birthday party. We had cupcakes and drinks. The kids played in Ashton's playhouse and on the fort one last time and we watched a movie and had popcorn, too.
Thanks to my Cricut machine and my endless supply of scrapbook papers, I was able to make the invitations, and all the decorations to match.
Not sure anyone is moving, but if you are and you have some time to plan. Have a Farewell Party for your kids. Or if you don't have kids, have one for yourself. Invite your friends.
Here's one last thing to share. In the goody bags I added these little boxes with my daugther's picture inside. The message says "Good bye, I'll miss you. Don't forget to write!", along with a few pre-addressed envelopes addressed to my daughter so her friends could write her. I tied each stack with a pretty ribbon.
