    What a great party!! Pretty much everything I do qualifies for this except my tomato cage chandelier even though it only cost me the price of the bulb… the light kit was $15 but I already had it from another project which we did not like plus it was purchased with a gift cards that I received for doing some surveys.

    So far there are already some super cute ideas! Have a great day!!
