My First Blog Party!

Ok, here goes… this is my 1st ever blog party (how exciting)!  It’s the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom and is running from April 9- 16th.

So what makes a great party?

  1. Friends & Family (can’t really have a party by yourself)
  2. Food (hungry guests are cranky guests)
  3. Music, Games, or Entertainment (no one wants to stand around twiddling their thumbs)

If you’re throwing a party at your house I think a comfortable number of guests is 6-8 (but in the case of the UBP- the more the merrier).  You always want to have an even number so that for games noone is left out.  Party food should include lots of finger foods (preferably non-greasy)- chips n dip, fruit tray, nuts, meat n cheese.  And don’t forget some sweets also- brownies, m&m’s, cookies, etc.  And of course, you need an assortment of beverages, everything from water & pop to beer & liquor… or just make it BYOB.  Some of my favorite party games are Guitar Hero

 Catch Phrase! &   Scene It? Box Office Smash Bundle

I also love playing cards- euchre, spades, & cribbage.

Hmm, all this talk about party necessities is making we want to throw a party at my house… have to talk to the hubby about that one.  Have a great day everyone & hope you enjoy the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

    It’s nice to “meet” you.

    Your post about your daughter sleeping naked is hysterical. My almost-2-year-old would rather be naked all the time. When I get him dressed, he claws at his clothes yelling, “OFF!” I really only push the clothes thing when we’re going to go out somewhere – lol.
