My idea is very similar to Joy's: You bring items of clothes, accessories, nick knacks, or any other kind of cool unwanted item, and swap it for something you friends bring! Whatever you don't swap should go to charity! There must be DVDs, Drinks,and food for a little spice:
- For a cheaper, but still delicious food table, have pizza, pasta, pretzels, and for a healthy touch some fresh fruit. (Strawberries, Blueberries , Melon, etc.) Also for a more free easy party have it buffet style so anyone can eat whenever they get hungry!
- For a sweet, but non-alcoholic drink center have punch, water, juice, soda, etc. And remember for food and drink if one of your friends have an allergy, make sure you keep that in mind when you make your food and drink selection!
- Next for a funner swap in the backround have on some of your favorite shows! For my Swap Shop it would be: "One Tree Hill", "Pretty Little Liars "(At night for a spooky effect), and probably "Switched at Birth"! If you're not much of a TV fan you can put on music.
- Finally if your my age and still have the tolerance for slumber parties have your friends sleepover! So, now you have New clothes and other items, a full stomach, and a memorable night with your friends!
