All the RSVP’s are in. This year I did the WhatsApp invites, and they worked really well. All the RSVP’s came in before time and it was so easy to do. Perhaps some people still prefer the paper invite, however, these just get lost at the bottom of the school bag. The paper ones we did receive, were followed up with a WhatsApp anyway. We had to be reminded to look at the bottom of the bag.
Next week I will confirm which siblings and parents are attending and let them know how to get there.
The savoury food is all under control. This week I will have to do the sweet stuff and ensure Hubby is on track with the cake. The bouncy entertainment is organised (this took some doing).
I have organised that Honeybear go playdate with a friend that morning. I want him to arrive at the party and see everything all set up.
I think I am looking forward to this more than anyone else. I love organising kids parties. I love making the party packs and cookies and cake and food and decor. We had a visiting IT guy in the office and he was listening to my party planning. He said that it sounds like the party he always wanted. His parents did not do themed parties…I hope Honeybear looks back and knows we had fun.
I would have liked a photographer, but she is not available. This year my plan is to be at the venue early so I can do the set up I want. The last time I did not have enough time to get everything organised before my guests arrived. I have tried to do as much of the food prep as possible and then I only have to stick them onto the trays with the fresh ingredients. Hopefully this will wok out. I have stuck with food I know and have cooked before.
