The 2017 Great American Eclipse is a great opportunity for a party. For eclipse-y food, costumes and supplies, head to Target for some great ideas. (This is not a sponsored post; I just love Target!)
Spent a fun couple of hours in Target today looking for supplies for our Space Fashion Show & Eclipse Costume Party and our Eclipse Baked Goods contest at work during the employee service association’s Pre-Eclipse Week celebration, and for ideas for an at-home eclipse celebration, too. (When you live in the Path of Totality, all your relatives want to come visit!)
And Target didn’t disappoint. Here’s what I found:
- Eclipse party food that really resembles some phases of the eclipse — yellow and black madeline and brownie tiny treat pairs.
- Inexpensive costumes for space lovers of any age — eight paper masks with elastic bands cost less than $4 in the children’s party department.
- Star design light-up balloons (Who knew balloons could light up?) The package says they’ll glow for 15 hours.
And I couldn’t resist this cute Nate Berkus chalk board and the multi-colored chalk pencils for my workplace wall (where I can write “Out to Lunch” anytime…) A friend pointed out that the blackboard part looks like the moon hiding the wicker sun.
Are you having an eclipse party? Find any interesting supplies?
