So Lainey's 3rd birthday party is this Sunday and I'm excited. Even for this "nothing special" party at a local park for 25 kids and 35 adults, it's amazing the number of lists I have going, and the amount of time I've spent planning instead of blogging.
Now that it's all set, here are the details... For the kids, I've ordered pizzas from Rosti, a tasty local Italian joint up the street, and for the adults, as I mentioned earlier, I ordered the most awesome 24 inch sandwiches from Bay Cities Deli. Delish! To go with the sandwiches, I bought a case of Kettle Chips on Amazon. I'm addicted to Amazon Prime.
I splurged and got the cake from Susie Cakes. It should be pink and purple with lots of hearts. Direct orders from a 3 year old.
For entertainment, it's still Goofy Gil and we're thinking an hour of crazy dancing. Let's burn these kids out. And to make it festive, mardi gras beads in hot pink and purple for everyone (including the parents if they're game).
And as for party favors, I initially wanted to put together a mix CD of Lainey's favorite dance songs, but it got a little complicated, especially with song rights and duplication, so instead I bought pink and purple glow sticks, some Wikki Stix, and some old fashioned Silly Putty. To be honest, I bet these go over better with the discerning toddler crowd.
In this economic climate and because we are starting a business, I've been trying to keeps costs down, but all in, this casual, low-key, (but hopefully still awesome) party wasn't as cheap as I'd planned. This is why we will soon be creating a simple-to-use party budgeting tool to put up on the site. I promised my husband I will be the first to use it.
