All-Sports Banquet

As I have mentioned before, Miranda & I work for Huff & Puff Trucking.  (Find our FB page here.)  If you'll remember, back in the winter, we helped decorate for the baseball kickoff banquet.  Find that post here.  So, Melodie volunteered to help decorate for the All-Sports Banquet that took place last night at our local high school.  I wanted to share with you some of the table decorations that we used, because I thought that there were some very unique ideas that would be great for a banquet or even a child's birthday party.  Since there are so many different centerpieces, I'm just going to give a brief description in the caption to keep this post from becoming super overwhelming.

Round Mirror (Hobby Lobby), Square vase (Hobby Lobby) filled with rubber soccer balls (Party City),
whistles, ceramic soccer ball (Hobby Lobby)

Finished off with a spike plant.
