Pokémon Go Party – Part 2

Today’s party post will be a bit of a mismatch of ideas and photos – but all relating to the Pokémon Go party we held on the weekend for our 11 year old son…

As I’ve said in previous party posts, we begin thinking about the party in that quiet time after Christmas. I start a new Pinterest board, in this case Pokémon Party, and I usually start a word doc where I list any ideas that come up. This year I caught up with the times, and started a Google doc!

Pokemon Party Prop – DIY Photo Booth Frame

Perusing Pinterest gave me some inspiration, but I was wanting a wreath that doesn’t include snow/snowflakes/ice etc. It doesn’t get that cold here in Sydney, Australia!
