Planning Elliot's 2nd Birthday Party

We are in the midst of planning Elliot’s second birthday party.  Kayla and I have
bounced around a few ideas about Elliot’s second birthday party.  First she was going to bake a cake and we were going to order sandwich trays.  Now that the guest list is around 35 (and that’s just 3 friends and the remainder is family!!!), we have decided on buying a cake and making the food.  My Mom suggested a pizza bar.  I don’t think Kayla is too keen on that idea, but with so many younger children, pizza may be the way to go or hot dogs.  For the more mature, ahem, I am going to make this super duper recipe, Creamy Potato Soup served with a good crusty bread, creamy butter, and a salad chock full of good stuff, i.e., cranberries, raisins, almonds, buttery croutons – heck, it will be a meal in itself!

The party plates, cups, napkins, tablecloth, streamers and other décor were ordered on-line (since received) from Party City a month ago.  Our theme is Thomas the Train.  Left to purchase is the Thomas the Train piñata.

The menu needs finalized.  I think we should go with hot dogs and mac n’ cheese for the little ones.  That would be Elliot’s pick.

The invitations are written, addressed, stamped and ready for the post.  They are being sent out today.

This weekend, weather permitting, we will be raking the front yard and getting the front porch ready for entertaining.  It’s currently raining here.

And of course, the house needs a good cleaning, as always.
