Have a Ball

Made popular in the 1950's, the original surprize balls are back with this handmade version. This is the ball you have to "destroy to enjoy". Unwind to discover keepsakes, fortunes, and prizes. Another "layer" to making any party special. Put one on each person's place setting to use as place cards or get one and pass it around the table. They are perfect for all kinds of parties. Going to dinner to celebrate an "older" birthday....bring one of these to have fun with as you wait for your food to arrive.

The photos show just a couple of ways to use them. These are a favorite because they are so versatile with endless possibilities. The balls can be decorated for any occasion or theme. Add the words, "have a ball" and you can say just about anything. Have a ball with your new baby. Have a ball with your new job. Have a ball in retirement. It's your birthday, have a ball.

OMG! My mom usd to give these to us when I was little and I always loved them! I have not seen them since then. Where can I find them? I think my kids would love these, even though they are teens.

P.S. Thank you for the kind visit to my blog and the link! You have a very nice blog and I think I could definitely use your help in the gift department. So I am adding your link! I hope that is OK.
