NOW there are far less box robots produced that I had planned, but a prego girl can only handle so much spray paint!!! So decoration idea number 1 is using old boxes, some paint (whether it be craft, spray, or house) and turn your old cardboard into a bunch of robots. These robots were created with spray paint in the colors of the party and then detailed with craft paint. Add some craft foam for arms and you have an army of robots.
Decoration idea number 2 was to make the house look like a "factory" by putting cogs all over the place. My cogs were cute out of paper plates and craft foam. The plates by far are the cheapest (well if you get them at Walmart) but you can't always find all the right colors, in comes the craft foam. I free handed mine, hence the lack of perfection. Cut out tons of cogs and place them in all the rooms you want to decorate.Number 3 was not my shining moment of pride, but it works...and could be done better. We had a robot factory where found robot parts were put in a little slot and then each child went in a "door" and came a robot. It is so easy to make rooms, rocket ships, factories, okay anything really, out of plastic table clothes and craft paint. Just tape it up to a wall and POOF you have an instant party decoration or game.
And Lastly, number 4 was the decorating of the table. Again, using plastic table clothes from Walmart is the cheapest and easiest way to set up a table. I used one for the bottom and folded the other for the runner. Then I just had cheap plates and napkins in the colors that matched the party. Using candy to decorate is also a fun cheap way to add something to the table. I used licorice in coordination colors (thank you Amish Country).
So there you have it. Pretty stinking easy and cheap. All it takes is a little time and thinking outside the box.
