6 today ♥

Good Monday.
Anita's birthday party was lovely but I don't think I will do a big party again! ;^)
So far we didn't have any tantrums, sugar highs were contained
and we had just a couple of minor casualties.
Mums had fun drawing and making origami with the kids (better say for the kids),
draw on tablecloths is very appealing to kids and it makes a great keepsake for you.
Competitive games make only unhappy bambini 
I banned them from our parties, unless everyone win something.
I had lots of wonderful helpers and little leftovers,
I hate food waste but home made is quite appreciated.
Keep it simple: brownies, popcorns,
mini pizzas, cheese sandwiches and little fairy cakes
are easy to make and easy to eat.

It all looks superb! I know how hard parties can be. I have now a few times after a party said 'NO MORE' but there have still been more! I always enjoy the calm after the storm! :)
