Partying with Channel 2!

We want to give a BIG thank you shout out to Casey Scott and the team with Channel 2 News!  We had so much fun partying with them this morning!  For all of you late sleepers who missed todays morning show- check out Channel 2's website.  For the rest of you, here are a few behind-the-scene pics of all the fun we had.  Enjoy!
Our wonderful party gals got up extra early to be to work at 5:00 am!

Not to mention, we worked hard the night before to make sure everything was perfect!

Emily kicked it off with an intro of our store.  It was here, Casey was introduced to our original Birthday Bra!

Ali and Shantel played Marble Grab with Casey... Ali won!  She's a 12 marble wife!

Afterwards, Callee talked with Casey about some different gift ideas that we offer at our store.  (Did you know that you can come in our store and pick out a whole bunch of random products and we will put it all together for you to give as a gift?!)  We invited the Lehi Pioneer Cheerleaders to come and play Bottom-End-Blow-Out with Casey.  Although, none of them popped Casey's balloon... it was still a blast!

Next, we took Casey out for more games with our Lehi Pioneer Girls Soccer team.  Here's a picture of Casey playing Garden Hose Limbo.  Don't you just love those coconuts?!

After all the games were done, Cait taught Casey how to make a fish balloon.  For those of you who don't know, we have the best balloons in the state!  Here's small list of what we offer:
Fish, octopus, caterpillar, butterfly, dragonfly, Spider, 5-petal flower, luau flowers, topiaries & much more!

We ended the show with Emily shoving foam in Casey's face!  Our local Fire Department came to spread the word about Lehi's Annual Foam Day.  If you live in the area, we highly recommend heading down to the Sports Complex (2100 W 700 S in Lehi) for some foam fun!  It will be July 24, 2010 (tomorrow!) from 11am-4pm.  Foam will be from 2pm-4pm.

All in all, it was a pretty fabulous day with Casey, Channel 2 & the Party Gals at Pioneer Party.


Pioneer Day Ideas...

The 24th of July marks the day that the Mormon Pioneers arrived in if you live here, you will have another day to celebrate this month!  Here are some ideas to incorporate with your kids, neighborhood, or family:


Three Legged Race
Button, button, where's the button?
Stick Pulling
Sack Race
Wheelbarrow Racing
Tug of War
Horse Shoes

And a few more that need some explanation...

Shadow Tag This game needs to be played on a sunny day. The person who is it tries to step on another player's shadow. If their shadow is stepped on they have to stand still. The game continues until every person has been tagged. Then the first person tagged becomes it. If a player gets tired of running they can lay down. Then the player who is it can't tag them.

Ducks Fly This game is similar to Simon Says. One child is chosen to be the leader. The other players face the leader. The leader tells the other children what to do. Then they copy the actions and sounds that the leader makes. The leader will say "ducks fly" and flap his arms. The players also flap their arms. The leader continues with other actions like "cats meow", "dogs bark," etc. But the leader also tries to trick others by mixing up the animal and sounds. If he says "sheep oink" the players must remain quiet until the leader says it correctly. If a player oinks then they are out.
Poor Doggie (or Poor Kitty) The point of this game is to make a player smile. The player who is "it" is the doggie. They must try to make someone smile or laugh. The players sit in a circle and the "Doggie" goes to each player and barks, whines, and imitates a dog. The players have to pet "Doggie" and say "Poor Doggie, Poor Doggie, Poor Doggie!" The player must not smile while saying this or he/she will become the next Doggie. Players are allowed to laugh and smile when the "Doggie" is not visiting them.

Here are a few helpful links if you are wanting craft ideas:

If you ARE going to have a party, make sure everything is simple - use brown kraft postal paper to cover tables, use jute or string to tie silverware together at each place setting, and keep favors or decorations to a minimum!  A fun favor and treat is a good old fashioned candy stick.  We have several to choose from in store or online.  Just remember to keep it simple and focus on the activities - the way it would have been!  Good Luck and Happy Pioneer Day!
