Party Time!

July 15th, 2017 at 02:01 pm

Oh my word--I wish I was one of those people who entertained without stress. My poor DD. This was her first birthday party at home in years, and she must've caught my nerves. She was awake at 1am the night before fretting over having chosen what she feared was the "wrong" flavors for her ice cream cake. She worried about the guest list; she threatened to cancel. My maniacal cleaning probably didn't help. For some insane reason she thought she should invite friends from 5-11, plus I had to drive 45 minutes south to pick up her friend who has moved. So how did it go? Fabulous. People told her it was the best cake they ever had--a Baskin Robbins Oreo ice cream cake. Four pizzas, endless bags of snacks, our new patio lights, games and chatter until their parents hauled them away. One girl slept over and they weren't up until 11. Her first party with BOYS.

DH and I sat outside for much of it, admiring our new patio lights and enjoying a nice bottle of rose'. I'm exhausted, but the whole thing probably only cost $125 or so. England in 12 days.

    I'm like that, too, and it always works out fine! So glad the party was a success! Wish we were coming with you to England!

    I am also pretty awful before throwing a party or holding a dinner so don't worry! However things generally go off without a hitch and all ends up usually being well, so I guess the aggravation beforehand is worth it Smile.

    I get it...I stress over everything. I'm glad the party was a success for everyone involved and it sounds like it was economical as well.

    Enjoy your trip!
