13 Things I have to do for the Fairy Party!


1.  Laminate the place mats. (We’re teachers, of course we have our own laminator)

2.  Find and set up the castle tent.

3.  Go through the Fairy craft book with big girl and negotiate which craft activities she wants and I think I can manage.

4.  Decide on and prepare the food, including a couple of extras because I’m really not a good cook.  I think I can probably guarantee fruit kebabs, but you never know.

5.  Shopping expedition for food and craft stuff.  Don’t forget plates and glue.

6. Complete the present for the guest having a party the day before.  It’s a small town, so we’ve managed to have two fairy parties with the same guests on Saturday and Sunday.  Do you think they’ll notice?

7. Clean the house and backyard.

8. Graciously accept the local teenagers’ offer to come along and ‘join in’.

9. Find the various fairy/princess/mermaid costumes floating around and make sure I have enough for everyone to dress up in something.

10. Get all the craft bits and pieces half done so they are manageable for 3 year olds. 

11. Do you think we need party bags?  I have some hair clips I’ve been meaning to glue ribbons on for most of a year, plus a million stickers and balloons and they’ll make things.  I think that’s more than enough, don’t stress if I don’t get to the clips.

12. Clean the house and backyard.  That’s not a typo, it probably deserves 3 or 4 spots on the list!

13. Organise something for parents.  Lucky my husband drinks coffee or guests would be out of luck with me.

    Oh Deb, this is so funny. This is the most anticipated birthday party, and I live across the country from you! How many more sleeps?

    I agree with Cap! I am counting down the time until we can see photos from the actual party!
