Is there any activity that strikes as much fear in the heart of parents as that of planning a child’s birthday party? If you have friends who pride themselves on Martha Stewart-like capabilities, you may feel negligent if you haven’t picked out your theme, personalized invitations, and artisanal birthday cake at least six months in advance, never mind deciding whom to invite and what games the kids will play.
Warm up the cold winter months with a fiesta! You and your child’s party guests can escape Jack Frost at home with this Taco Bar Birthday Party! Kick your party food up a notch with a delicious selection of taco shells, meats and toppings, plus brightly-colored fiesta décor.
While you could create a romantic candlelit fondue dinner for two, it’s easier and just as much fun to invite several other couples to join you. I suggest three to four couples total, including the hosts, depending on how many courses you want to include in your meal. If you don’t mind hosting it potluck- style, asking each couple to bring ingredients for one course not only disperses the food prep, it also adds variety as each couple has the opportunity to select their favorite ingredients to share.
Winter is a tough time to host a birthday party for your child. It’s cold and generally unpleasant outside, forcing you to be creative with your indoor party theme. This year, embrace the chilly weather by hosting a Winter Wonderland Party! A great indoor party offers the best part of Mother Nature’s frosty venue, but in a much warmer space.
