thanks for getting back to me, after much thought and discussion we've decided to go for the mini-loons running around purpose built hall at extreme expense as it's something we've not done before and something we're unlikely to want to repeat again. Roll on next year when I can look forward to dd actively requesting much more sedate celebrations ... I think!
DD's birthday is looming and I really like the idea of a jewellery making party. I've found a couple in my area that are age appropriate and they look easy like fun. Anyone had any experience either hosting or of their child going to a party like this?
