I'm pretty new to this forum and mostly just browse and love reading all your tips and suggestions!
I'm currently planning my son's 3rd bday party and want to make it as affordable as possible. I am having it at a gymnastics school (my home is too small to have all the kids and adults) and it will cost me for the place and entertainment $200 (a lot for many but the only affordable thing i've found in my area, believe it or not)
I need to come up with goodie bags, food, cake, plates...etc
I will have about 16 kids at the party (plus parents) - which is all family.
I have a DELICIOUS chocolate cake recipe, but don't know how to decorate - anyone have ideas? sticking to a gymnastics theme if possible.
a cheap craft? I was thinking of oriental trading? anyone have other suggestions?
Food - pizza for the kids (2 pies - 1 slice each, right?) and baked ziti, meatballs, dinner rolls, salad for the adults.
dessert would just be cake
It's only a 2 hour party but will run into dinner time so I can't just have snacks.
Any suggestions you have would be GREATLY appreciated.
