Japanese Sushi Party

This is an easy and fun party to plan for just a few friends, your family or a large group of people...
just add more sushi or less sushi to your party depending on how many guests you have.
I created this party for  our family only.
This is a fun way to enjoy sushi and a unique way to make dinner extra special!

My family gets excited about "theme" nights and my husband has plenty of Jui Jitsu Gear...(enough said!)
this is a very easy party to set up (and a good excuse to use my new square plates)
The mini take out boxes make a fun inexpensive centerpiece.
I also bought a bulk package of chop sticks, but you can get those free when you buy sushi.
Hot Tea is a nice touch,
I have had this glass tea pot for a long time, and I am glad to finally use it.

The Sushi is from our local grocery store, I just arranged the sushi on other plates
Cut up fruit....easy!
And the best part....


we had a contest to see how many mini marshmallows we could pick up using chop sticks
and the biggest hit of all
We started easy with cute hearts and moved on to cranes

 In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true!
We started our cranes...but, we have a long way to go to 1,000!

You have the most fun at your house. I am seriously taking lessons for when I have my own space and especially if I ever have a husband and children!
