It's May, which means one thing: We're talking about parties...and have done so for months.
Literally the day after my daughter's 5th birthday, in which I went out at Goodwill to create a Fancy Nancy themed tea party, she announced the theme for year 6: a Mamma Mia party.
Yikes. The pressure was on. And it stayed on, until the last week or so, when we finally discussed what it meant for a Mamma Mia party. Apparently it involved the girls and boys singing renditions of the songs. Except that I don't know that every child has the same affinity for the movie. Or if her best friend Jonathan is ready for the solo act.
So we've been talking alternate ideas of late. She's kicked around princesses and rainbows, and thankfully hasn't brought up the idea of partying at venues like the gymnastics school or pizza places. But finding a theme that works for six year olds, doesn't cost $150 and still is resource-friendly is a challenge.
So today, Boothers, I'm turning to you: What are you best party ideas that you've done for your families?
Thanks to all of you who responded about the farmers market wrap-up. We'll get this started soon!
