I so do not like party stress. I really don't like it when at a party you spend all your time running around before during and after like a crazy chicken and do not get to enjoy, talk or just take a few minutes.
The party's over and you never got to interact with anyone.
Every time I do a party/gathering I swear the next time I'm gonna employ someone/find a friend to help out/find a neighbourhood teen to be a servant or something!
And every time I never do.
But one thing I do enjoy about parties is the little details I can do well before the day.
OH they make my heart sing!
To accomplish things slowly and surely without rush, makes me think that if I don't get to enjoy the actual party, I can enjoy something before hand.
I usually have a week/two week plan before Parties.
I like to make pinata's about a week before. I make bunting or decorations 5 days before. I bake the cake and freeze it (un-iced) 3 days before. That leaves the last day or night before for food prep.
I'm never stressed before a party, just during. Heres to preparation making it a little easier.
*I think I've found a new addiction. Using a 2 cm circle paper punch I punched out a bunch of circles then put them through the sewing machine. Voila - paper confetti strands. IT was so RELAXING and FUN. I want to make a bunch more! Very very cheap decoration idea and they look really cute!
*For the pinata this time I invested in a large 18 inch balloon from the party shop. This makes the pinata a lot bigger than using a regular balloon and it has a lot more impact. Worth the $1.60! Pinata's were $35 in the party store, I made mine for about $5.
*Free Printable Photo booth props from OH Happy Day and thanks to Aunty Gilly for printing and cutting them all out. They look amazing and I can't wait to get some wacky photos.
