Mission Birthday Party Part 2 : 6 things I Have Learned from Planning a 5 year Old’s Birthday Party

The invitations are out, the RSVPs have started coming in, thanks to Pintrest I have all the decorations ideas on my “board”, and the decoration materials (for the most part) have been bought. I have the cake on order and even secured a face painter. It’s been a very busy few days and here is what I have learned that hopefully you can learn from should you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

  1. It’s possible to spend over $120.00 at the Dollar Store
  2. Everything looks easy on Pintrest specially when you’re making decisions after 11:00pm
  3. Don’t share what your ideas are for the party with the birthday girl until you’re sure the ideas are actually as easy as they look
  4. Taking your birthday girl shopping with you for the birthday loot will only end in tears when you refuse to spend $40 per child.
  5. Don’t promise the birthday girl a piñata when you have absolutely nowhere in your home where a dozen little girls can swing a bat.
  6. Take good care of your dishwasher. Mine has suddenly decided to stop working, and I have been sick all week so there is a pile of dishes in my sink and 27 hours until the party. ( Cinderella washed dishes didn’t she? Maybe it can be a fun activity…….)
