Goodie Bags: The Modern Party Must Have

I don't know about you, but when I was a kid there was no such thing as fancy goodie bags.  The closest my (numerous) siblings and I ever got to one was a brown paper bag to retrieve Pinata candy, if we were lucky enough to even be invited to a party that HAD a Pinata.

Now-a-days, however, goodie bags are a MUST at parties and, unfortunately, we moms stress to keep up!  In fact, I see more "performance anxiety" over goodie bags than I do cakes, which is such a shame.  Not only do we stress about what to put IN the bag, we stress about the COST of the bags; and often kids end up going home with a cute little bag full of absolute junk.

Thus, I am dedicated to the goodie bag!  Yes, here at MareAmi you will be seeing lots of goodie bag ideas.  Some more fancy than others but always sure to be a hit with the guests at your own party.

Stay tuned for a Littlest Pet Shop goodie bag that is sure to be a kiddo-crowd-pleaser!
