MerryB Events is so excited to be teaming up with skilled silhouette artisans to bring you these beautiful keepsakes that make amazing momentos for moms, dads, and grandparents (Christmas is right around the corner!).
Each silhouette is cut freehand in the European embellished style and mounted to a white 5" x 7" mat suitable for framing. Oval mats and picture frames are also available. See the order form for pricing.
There are two ways to order your silhouettes:
1. We take the picture for you.
Bring your child to any of the following local events and we’ll help you get a suitable profile shot for the artist to work with. We’ll have order forms on hand or you can print one ahead of time.
August 18 - Castles & Crowns Trunk Show @ Ross Bridge Welcome Center
August 25 - Castles & Crowns Trunk Show @ Lake Cyrus
We can also schedule an individual sitting. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a date and time.
2. You take the picture for us.
Snap a good profile photograph of your child and bring it (printed or on a disk) to any of the events listed above. Or email it to email@example.com. We’ll email you back with ordering and payment instructions.
We'll be taking orders through the end of August and proceeds will benefit Camp Smile-A-Mile! Contact Dawn Ey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205.215.3035 with any questions.

The recipe is easy to make at home (see it here)! The "trick" to making the polka dots is marshmallows! Just think of the color combinations you can do with all the different available marshmallows now - pink, green, blue. So many options for your next polka dot party!

Make invitations in the shape of a school bus or crayon using cardstock or print party details onto a designed invitation. We like these mod apple postcards designed by Antionette Palmieri and found on etsy.com.
* Don’t Miss the Bus Race – Have the children pack a lunch, grab homework, collect milk-money from mom, put it all in their backpack and hop on the bus
* Volcano science experiment – Things have changed since Peter Brady got hot lava all over the Brady den. Now you can pick up a pre-made kit that erupts more gently… and the kids still love seeing it in action.
* What I Did on My Summer Vacation Charades – Give each guest a turn to act out their favorite summer memory.
* Scavenger Hunt for school supplies.
* Show & Tell – Invite guests to bring something to share with ‘classmates’.
* Create handprints using tempura paint and colored construction paper.
* Play Red Rover, Freeze tag or Kickball.
* Gift certificate to a local office supply store.
* An artist sketch pad and pastels
* Personalized stickers or labels for school gear.
With these fun Back-to-School party ideas, you’re sure to relieve any worries and give enthusiastic students an outlet for releasing all that energy!
