For busy moms and dads, it can be hard to plan anything very far in advance. Someone inevitably comes down with a stomach bug, baby gets an ear infection or there’s a surprise make-up ballgame. With a plethora of printables on the ‘net and a marginally good printer, however, last-minute party-planning is a cinch. Although Independence Day is tomorrow, you still have time to throw a great holiday party. The printables and tutorials below are all reasonably-priced–some are even free–and all can be completed with just enough time to spare before the guests begin showing up.
