Onto my project....
On Tuesday was our annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon which myself and another mom coordinate. It is the event that the teachers wait all school year for! We get volunteers from other parents to supply dishes and set lunch up buffet style. Well can you guess the theme for this year....LOL!
One of the "extra" things I do to make the event more special is make all the decorations and party here they are.....
Since the theme was Mardi Gras I wanted the decorations for the tables to be interactive. The atmosphere is very laid back during the lunch and the teachers tend to hang out, eat and chat so I made these 3 mask that they can pick up and put on.
This is the how the mask looked on the table...I added bead necklaces, coins and feathers as well.
Here is a close-up of the table...doesn't the mask look awesome on the table???
This is the invite that I made to post in the teacher's lounge
And finally these are the treats that the teachers left with. My husband and I ended up dipping 170 pretzels.....and believe it or not, they took next to no time to complete. 
Talk about a HUGE hit!!!

So there it is....
What do you think???
