Relay For Life Party!

Relay For Life!
We wanted to bring awareness to the Relay For Life events that are taking place by showing you some simple ideas for putting together a very easy, budget savvy dessert table, using our free Relay For Life party printables.We shared these printables with you in an earlier post and are happy to share them with you again for such a worthwhile cause. 

We hope you will be inspired to host a Relay For Life party in your home, church or place of business to raise proceeds to help with the cure of ALL forms of Cancer. For more information please go to the American Cancer Society. 
                  Now, on to the party stuff!!!

                      Something good to eat!



 We used store bought cupcakes and topped them with our Relay For Life cupcake toppers by cutting them out with a 2 inch scallop punch and securing a lollipop stick on the back. {We usually bake our own cupcakes, but because of time, we opted for store bought}. We added another cupcake paper to the cupcake for fun and appeal!

                Something to wash it all down!
                       {WATER BOTTLES}

 We used our Relay For Life printable bottle wraps to wrap the water bottles. TIP: Always remove the water bottle label prior to attaching your bottle wrap as it gives a nice clean surface to work with, and your bottle wrap will look much nicer! For our straw slips we simply used our party circles, cut two slits in them, and threaded the straw through.

                  Something to say "Thank You"!
                       {PINK GUN BALLS}

We placed pink gum balls in treat bags and tied  them up with ribbon and our party circles! It is always nice to send your guests off with a special little treat of some sort.

So that is our little impromptu Relay For Life party ideas! We truly hope we have inspired you to get involved, have a Relay For Life Party, raise awareness and dollars if you can. You can find our Relay For Life party printables here, and more information on how you can get involved here.

Remember, keep it Homespun!

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in His ways.
Psalm 128:1

Homespun With Love
