This was a party that I planned 5+ months in advance. Because of that, I was able to find a lot of things in Clearance Bins, Marked down, Using 40% off coupons at craft stores and hand make most things using my cricut and inspiration from various websites.

    I got paper food trays from Jilly Bean Kids. You can't see them in this picture. The striped paper is waxed paper from the craft store, and so are the cotton candy pics
