We've only had home parties once or twice, back in the days when it was family only. I'm so stumped about what we should do for K's birthday next month and I'm leaning towards home party again, I'm just unsure. Nice to know you survived it!

We did survive it--and pretty well. You have the added benefit of being in a warm climate, so you can always throw them all outdoors! For us it's easier--our kids are happy to be on home turf, and it's inexpensive (it costs so much to rent a place).

I only just know found your comment, mary--I guess it had been tagged as spam!

Thanks--it was tough at first to figure out how to do both, but in the end inspiration struck and we made it work. T. helped a lot, too, which is one of the great things about having a party at home.
