April Celebrations - Days 1 Through 8:
Beekeeping season starts in April. A bee has to make about 2 million "flower stops" in order to make only one pound of honey. Now we know where the expression "Busy as a Bee" comes from....
BASEBALL SEASON STARTS!! We really feel that the month of April puts us into the Baseball Season. Definately the time to buy your baseball tickets!
Baseball fans are truly excited that the competition is warming up for a long hot season to come. Start this April Celebration with a gathering of friends with a BASEBALL THEME party. It will be sure to score several points with your "Bleacher Bum" buddies. It's time to step up to the plate and prepare for a party that will knock all other parties out of the ballpark. Have everyone dress in the colors of their favorite team and have fun. Don't forget to sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at least once during the course of the party! What to serve at this party, you ask... Hotdogs, of course. Don't forget the popcorn and crackerjack as well. If the weather permits, have the party out of doors to really get into the swing of things.
