So you’re a little down on parties this year because of the recession? Parties can be expensive, especially if you’re throwing them yourself. Not only does the host provide the location, food, drinks, decorations and sometimes party favors, but the host also cleans up!! That doesn’t sound like too much fun.
I was looking at an article this morning and even tweeted about it earlier. Do you remember what it was? Hint: The title of this blog post is kind of the answer.
Yea, I think you get the idea. The new party idea is a block party! Your kids will have fun, the parties expenses are covered equally by everybody and if you have a neighborhood pool, then that just creates even more opportunity for a good time. And you can have more than a one person clean up crew.
If you were hoping for something a little more grown up, just do what I plan on doing fairly soon and have a wine and cocktail pot luck. Each guest can bring a food to share and their own beverage. It’s all about the company anyways, isn’t it? Get together and have a fabulous time on a budget!
