Professional Party Planning

Time goes by so quickly. Grace is only 9 months old, but I started to put her 1st Birthday party plans together yesterday.

I’ve always read that the etiquette for a child’s birthday party is to invite 1 plus the child’s age. This would equal 2. That does not work. I can see that number being practical when she is 10 and wants to invite the entire 5th grade. Sorry honey, 11 is the magic number- you need to narrow down your list.

We are not talking about 9 years from now though. We are talking about 3 months from now with a lot of family planning to travel out from Chicago. It is going to be her Baptism, the duce.

Family: 8, Friends: 12, Neighbors: 17 = 37 people for a 1 year old birthday party. Wow. And that’s with leaving off a couple of question mark friends because their kids are older than Grace.

We’ve got a lot of work to do.

Even though it's 3 months ahead, it's better than waiting at the last minute!
