Around the World: The Decorations

This year, I planned an "Around the World" theme for my children's choir (1st-8th grade). As we approach the end of the choir year, I am planning an International Night/end-of-the-year party to celebrate!  Today, I’m sharing my inspiration for the decorations. As a visual aid for the kids during the year, I made an 8.5″x11″ paper flag of each place that we visited, leaving me with 8+ flags to use for decorating at this party!  I like this idea of hanging them behind one of the food tables but I’m also considering stringing them together to make some colorful bunting.


I think a colorful bunting would bring the whole room to life.  Bunting (in some fashion) is a must.

Everyone knows drinking with a straw make your drink way more fun.  How about some striped (color-appropriate!) ones like these?

Lastly, it wouldn’t be a party without some type of favor!  I’m still trying to decide what will be best.  A flag key chain?  A sweet treat?  An iTunes download?  The possibilities are endless!  I've seen mini paper bags made from recycled maps – perfect for giving away a prize at the end of the night!
