I just realised I'd totally forgotten table cloths and birthday candles! Got a nagging feeling I've forgotten something else - can you spot it?

Have got:

Venue (they do everything except food)

Cardboard lunch boxes containing:
- half sandwich
- crisps
- chocolate & sweets
- raisins

On table (they will be sat in front of healthy food for a few minutes before gak arrives!)
- veggies & fruit
- pop corn

Plates (not sure if we really need them)
3 large bowls (for pop corn)
various plates for veggies & fruit
Party bag stuff
2 x cakes

Jugs! Forgot jugs for squash, we had some plastic ones but they seem to have got lost. And still need party bags.

I really wish I was doing this with enough time for Amazon Prime! (Will be trip to shop in the morning).

Hmm. What else have I missed?

Do the venue provide napkins? You’ll need more than you think, for the mess, and the cake!
