I'm throwing a bday party for both of my DD's this weekend. It's at a gymnastics studio, and it's just open play (no structured activities) for an hour and then 30 minutes of eating time in another room. This is my first time planning a kids bday party, and I could use some advice.
We have around 20 kids coming, plus the adults. I was planning on making two different kinds of cupcakes and having drinks (water and juice). Will this be enough food? Should I make more desserts, like cookies or brownies? I didn't want to have anything substantial because of the short amount of time we have to eat, and the party is at 3:30 pm.
For the favors, I made hand kites like these:
I was also going to make some chocolate dipped pretzel rods. Do you think that will be enough, or should I get something else to add to the favor bags? I'll probably have them pick out the hand kites and use them at the party so the only thing in the bags will be the pretzels.
