Problem with being in the promo/events line is that when I have my own non-job related event to plan, I'll try to make sure it ends up being as successful and fun as possible. Occupational hazard I guess! Like what hubby said, the parties I'd done for Aidan seemed more for me than him..But it is always worth it when I see the big smile on his face and the boy telling me how much fun he had (although I'm sure if he just had a big room to run around with his good pals, he'd enjoy himself just as much :P)! The compliments from the other guests also makes it all worth it.
I had the entire function room decorated in the High School Musical theme.The party was jammed packed with activities with face-painting & bouncy castle, games for the kids and entertainment in the form of a magician. I think I crammed too much in that 3+ hours that there wasn't even much time for the kids to eat! The hotdog stand was a hit with the adults (even though it was meant for the kids)..at least the children loved the candy floss! I was supposed to be a cheerleader and hub wore his sportsgear! Couldn't find any nice sportsgear for Aidan so I just dressed him up in the red/white colors to match the decor hehe..Some folks had actually asked me why I don't consider doing party-planning for a living but I think I'll probably go mad if I do. Doing it once a year is enough for me!
Thanks to all who'd came for the party and all the pressies!!! And wishing all a blessed & joyous Christmas and a fabulous 2008!!
