Since this week’s WFMW is about Birthday tips, I thought I’d share with you two things I have found that really work for me.
Don’t you hate it when the cake is cut and all anybody is waiting for is a scoop of ice cream? One way I save time is to scoop it beforehand. Place each scoop in a paper baking cup and place the cups in a muffin tin. Place the tin in the freezer, pull it out right before serving and drop the baking cups onto waiting plates.
I used to make goody bags for every little guest that would come, but after tallying up the cost, I realized I was spending somewhere between $5-7 on each bag! Instead, I pick a game (like Uno) or a toy (like a frisbee) and have a bunch in a basket and each child gets one before they leave. I just think this is something they are more likely to use and maybe they’ll remember their friend when they play with it.
Do you have anything that works for you? Head on over to Shannon’s for more WFMW Birthday tips!
