Its not until April but we were discussing it earlier and very low on ideas
Her birthday falls on a Sunday so she can't (and doesn't want to as has friends who aren't 18 until after her) just go on a pub/club crawl as lots of her friends are planning, and quite wanted to have some family come as close to aunts and cousins/2nd cousins so would like to celebrate with them
We have a decent sized garden so could have them all round saturday night but are they all going to freeze their bums off in April??
Hiring a venue probably wouldn't work too well as again, she won't and many friends wont be 18 and she's said that it won't be much fun if some people are drinking and half of them aren't allowed to which is fair enough i suppose
So now I'm stumped - any of you got any ideas for a bunch of teenagers that wont force me to remorgatge my house - I don't mind paying a bit but not an arm an a leg!!for her 21st maybe
Back in the day when I turned 18, my close circle of friends all decided to do different things to celebrate, so we had the chance to do the clubbing thing, had a takeaway round someone's house, family party, dinner and theatre. I got the posh 3 course meal. My mum, bless her, is a fab cook so she did all the food for us and her and Dad served it to us. We all got into the spirit of it and dressed up in cocktail dresses and dickie bows. Made it a bit special.
