Tee Time Birthday Party

The invitation:

We had a fun birthday for Miss Lucy yesterday afternoon.

Originally I wanted to have a tea party but many of her friends are boys, so a Tee Time seemed to work better. I called it Lucy's Par 2 Golf Course. There were 6 holes:

1. water hole: knock your ball to the pool, scoop up the letters that spell lucy’s name, then throw them back into the water. get your ball into the hole for a bonus point.
2. sand trap: smack your ball to the sand trap, dig up two number 2’s, then bury them again for the next player to find.
3. silly putting: work on your putting skills. get your ball into the hole 2 times.
4. driving school: practice your swing. hit the ball as far as you can at least 2 times. make sure everyone is done swinging when you retrieve your golf ball(s).
5. sitting pretty: feeling tired? pull up a chair and rest a while then hit your ball through the row of chairs and into the hole.
6. two for one: take your pick. get your ball into one of the two holes to end the game.
Bonus - hide ‘n’ golf seek: find 2 golf ball (circles or spheres)shaped objects hidden around the
playground/house for 2 bonus points. finders keepers.

Before the kids started golfing, they received a bag with a score card and stickers, a pencil, and a bottle of water. Then they picked up a golf club and a ball and set off for an afternoon on the links.

Each hole had a flag and an instruction card.

All that golfing made everyone hungry so we took a break to enjoy Club Sandwiches (your choice: PB & J Club or Turkey & Cheese Club).

A white chocolate covered popcorn golf ball.

And, of course, a cupcake.

Kristen you are too creative, I wish that I could do things half as creative as you! I bet Lucy loved her party and I'm sorry we didn't call her! Great job everything is so nice!

What program do you use for all the little handouts, etc. that you make? Like photoshop or something?

Super cute. Makes me tired thinking of all the work involved!

I don't use photoshop. Just Microsoft Publisher. I wish I had photoshop :)
