 RECESSION.... WHO CARES??  LET'S HAVE A POVERTY PARTY!!!

 
So.... We're in a recession.  To get us out of our doldrums let's remember the Breadlines of the late 1920's and 30's and then raise a toast to 2009!
 

 

Invite Your Guests

Everyone is broke.  Let’s do the invites on the cheap… Cut brown paper grocery bags (without printing on them) into 6” X 8” rectangles.  Fold each one in the middle to create a 4” x 6” “card”.  Hand write your party info on the inside and print your guest’s address on the outside. Use stickers to close.  Be sure to ask your guests to bring a bag of groceries for your local food bank. 
 
Set The Scene  Here are some ideas to make your home look like the “Breadline”:
