Here we are in what seems like week 800 of COVID-19, and I am aching for life to get back to normal or even semi normal. I miss seeing my friends in person. I miss having my kids at school rather than at home to learn. I miss teaching my own students at work and not through the computer. Overall, this distance learning has me STRESSED! With all the craziness of distance learning right now, I am in desperate need of a girls night! Hence...Operation: Girls Night!
Invite: We used to play the board game Operation when I was a kid. I thought it might be a fun theme to work with for our girls night. Turns out it was just what the doctor ordered (yes...corny joke time). I created the invite with the color scheme to match the game (the original version). I added some of the game pieces into the text of the invite as well.
Party Details: Due to COVID we are still on Zoom for these dinners, so I am not doing table decorations, but I still try to add fun party details to play up the theme. For my mini wine bottles for each guest, I purchased tweezers from the dollar store and tied them with ribbon to the top. This was to simulate the tweezers attached to the wire that are used in the game.
I created a wine label using "Cavity Sam" just as he appears on the game box, but with one small addition -- I added a body part/game piece. This was the wine glass where the mouth is. It was so small on the wine bottle I am sure most of the girls didn't even notice, but it made me chuckle! I think I should have just included the head-shot of Cavity Sam like I did here, so it would have been more noticeable. Hindsight, I guess.
