107 - Another Year
Big Bang Theory
Ever find yourself having to throw a big party on a small budget?
You may want to consider visiting ethnic neighbourhoods for party
favours at favourable cost. Our Chinese-themed birthday party was
very elaborate, yet I spent very little. Chinese paper lanterns
tied with raffia and bear grass or palm leaves cost next to nothing
and I can someday re-use them to spruce up my place.
Vibrant oriental fans and a tablecloth made from silk remnants enhance
the already exotic look. Unique and inexpensive china pieces left
money for accessories such as dipping bowls, soy sauce containers,
tea cups, chopsticks and even chopstick rests! How about sandalwood
fans and fortune cookies?
Oriental flower arrangements are simple, meaning fewer flowers.
All you need are half a dozen spotted orchids in a glass vase. Break
off a few of the petals and place them on a tray with heated face
towels. A little imagination and even less money goes a long way
in making an event memorable!
