Bow Tie Party
We had a bow tie themed blessing party for our little guy, Cruz. It was a lot of fun. We had a family gathering in our backyard with family. We kept it super simple. Because the blessing was in the morning, we had a light breakfast menu. We served muffins, french toast sticks, fresh fruit, and o.j. I have learned over my years of party planning, that when preparing a party menu, the simpler the better. You don't need 20 things. Just make a few things really well. Anyway, as you continue through this post you will see the fun projects I made for his party. yippee for cruz!
Bow tie napkins were easy enough to make. We bought yellow rectangular napkins. You then fold the middle of the napkin in a little and then press the rest of it together to create the creases and folds in the napkin that make it resemble a bow tie. My mother in law and I made these and we realized that it took a bit if patience and each napkin kind of took a different shape so you had play with them a little to get the right shape. I had pre-cut strips of paper that would wrap around the middle. After I got the shape together, I wrapped the piece of paper around the middle and made it as tight as possible and then taped it. You want them as tight as possible so they will stay together. They arent hard to do at all! but they do take a little bit of time.
