Party Plannng

Little one's birthday is coming up at the beginning of next month. And I am so unprepared. I am a serious party planner. I used to consider becoming a professional party planner, but somehow I don't think I'd get much business in our little podunk town.

I have 2 1/2 weeks until his party. We have a theme, we have plastic ware, and we have ideas. That's about it.

I ordered invites, or I think I did. No response so far from the company though. I tried shopping for favors, complete failure. The only thing I came home with was a headache.

I really need to get on the ball or our party's going to consist of 10 little kids screaming at me that there's nothing to do. (That's if I ever get the invitations to send to them.)

Why does a 5 year old's party stress me out so bad? (Okay, maybe it's because although I love the planning, deep down I hate hosting parties.)

Aw don't worry I am sure it will all come together! Whats your theme and stuff. Since your a big party planner person you should do a post on the last 4 you have planned! Would love to read:)

Oh no, that sounds stressful! I've had moments where I've considered how fun it would be to plan parties professionally, but I'm sure the stress always wins out in the end. But hang in there - I'm sure everything will work out and the party will be great! :-)

I love to plan too but hate to host. That's why I always want the party to be somewhere other then my house. I'm sure you'll be able to pull everything together. The kids don't need a lot to be entertained so you can keep it simple. Good luck!
