This is such a great idea! If you have an old dresser or drawers you can easily used them from storage under your bed. Or dog beds that can be easily put away when not being used.
Cute center piece idea & cost less than $2 Each. They're dollar store vases the inside lined w/ scrap book paper then embellished. Fill with your choice of filling (flowers,tissue paper, candy) u can even put a picture in between the paper & glass to personalize them a little more:)
Storage boxes can be a little expensive, especially if you need alot of them - recycling cardboard boxes might just be the trick!

Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups: These have quickly become a weekend favorite. I make an entire pan full and then the hubby has a yummy, wholesome breakfast to grab and take with him as he's running out the door at the crack of dawn. Yay for cooking once a week! ;) 1 24 oz. bag of shredded hash browns 2 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper 2 tbs oil (I use olive oil) 1/3 cup shredded cheddar Bacon bits or 8=10 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled Eggs Extra shredded cheddar Muffin tin Take your bag of hash browns and mix in the salt, pepper, oil and 1/3 cup shredded cheese. Divide amongst the cups in your muffin tin, making sure to grease tin beforehand. Bake hash browns at 425 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until toasty. Once they're finished, take them out and lower the temp of the oven to 350 degrees. Crack an egg into each of the cups Top with bacon and a sprinkle of extra cheese Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes (or until the eggs are as firm as you like them). Slide a knife along the edges to remove from pan when cooled. Notes: I like to break the yolks in my eggs a bit once I put them into the hash brown cups When I cheat on these, I use the Oscar Meyer Bacon pieces found in the "salad dressing" section of the grocery store. They're the closest thing to fresh bacon I can find, and all-natural. :) You can also experiment with ham, sausage, and veggies to make them your own!
25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
Best advice someone gave me that helped a ton, NUMBER your rsvp cards because some people write a note where they should put their name and you have no idea who it is! Once you get them back in the mail, go into your excel spreadsheet and mark them coming or not coming. Then you also dont have to worry about losing the cards and you can easily tell who still owes you one! (For the OCD planner in me)

... I know this is an iPhone background.... BUT.... if you cut half circles like this out of scrapbook paper and arranged them like this, maybe put them in a frame or something, that'd be really fun! I know you can get sparkly gold paper like that. Just a thought!
