The party is almost here. I have sewn and glued so many things. So what do we have:
All the tablecloths are done and I shall iron them tonight.
Ninja masks done.
The picnic blankets are completed.
Sweetie guessing jar is done.
I caved in and made a pinata last night, as hubby actually wanted one.
Hubby is done with the ninja ball toss
The cake layers are baked and will be put together on Friday night. Hubby has been so efficient.
Pizza ordered. Hubby once again.
Pizza labels done (found a great free TMNT font)
Centre pieces are almost done. Balloons will finish them off on Friday night.
Hubby made all the sweeties and they look brilliant. I am very impressed with his confectionary skills. ( He is a trained confectioner, but works on the management side for the last few years).
HB’s clothes for the day…he wanted a TMNT costume…but I actually did not make it,a s I forgot in the day of the terrible headache. However, my sister sent him a mask and we bought the turtle shell. I am opposed to weapons, even as toys, however, Hubby says we should get him the plastic sword. Not sure about it still. He does have a costume, but it is a winter type thing and will not work in the high heat we are already having.
Things to do:
Glue my labels onto the party packs.
Clean house…there is play sand and cardboard shavings in the little corners. This is hubby’s job today as he is home and I love him so much. (the domestic lady abandoned us for a two day a week job so we are on our again).
Get beds ready for my parents who arrive tomorrow morning. I have already done the clean linen.
Cook lunch for Friday, tonight (so my parents have lunch ready while I am at work tomorrow).
Fruit and fresh veggies to be shopped on Friday evening as we cannot really get them any earlier…or maybe tonight…our fridge, shop fridge, should be the same.
Get out all my serving plates.
Balloons and more balloons to be filled and hung in the trees on Saturday morning.
Confirm the jumping castle today. (well it is done, but I need to make sure)
Send out security codes and map pins on Saturday morning.
On the RSVP’s…five people did not bother to reply. I was expecting more to just forget. So 5 out of 30 is not bad in my books. I have made extra party favours, etc for the unexpected. Though no one can get in without a security code. In Gauteng you need a swipe tag, code or ticket to get in everywhere. It is crazy this world we live in. We live in a place where you need to get through a boomed guard entry point where your drivers licence and car disc is scanned, and they still take a picture of you and the car. Then another coded gate pad and then your house door. It is nuts when I write it out like that.
I will make up a private post with pictures for anyone who is interested to see them.
