The girls will be 2 on 12 March so it is time to plan the festivities.
Seeing how they are in school now we’ll invite some of the kids in their class (do I have to invite all of them??). The thing is, a lot of the kids have older siblings in class with Daniel, so that is automatically another few children. I shudder to think how many children and adults in total when I add family and other friends.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a “the more the merrier” type. I love the chaos of a party at my house. But I need to get my head around the logistics of this one as money is really, really tight at the moment.
Theme: I’m thinking polka dots or flowers or butterflies – any thoughts or suggestions? I can just go to Merripak and get paper boxes as usual and do my own party packs, so any of the above themes could work quite easily.
Cake: I need to decide: 2 cakes or 1. Last year 1 cake was fine, but in my obsessiveness to be fair I know I’m probably going to completely overcompensate and overspend as usual.
Entertainment/Venue: We are lucky enough to have a nice big garden, but if it’s going to be so many people I’m not sure it will work. Anyone have any ideas? A school friend of Daniel’s is having his party at Altydgedacht, and apparently you can do your own catering?? A friend has a jumping castle business, so she normally rents out at a “friend rate” and I can probably get face painters again??
Horror of all horrors, from the depth of the couch I have just heard hubby mumble the words “low” and “budget” in one sentence. The man clearly has no idea.
