Here’s where my real-life and my pinterest-life are completely different.
I absolutely love planning parties, on Pinterest, in fact my Pinterest parties are amazing, if I do say so myself. They have wonderful looking food, fun games and beautiful decorations.
Then I remember that I hate parties. I’m not good with people, I’m not good with social events and I am especially not good with my expectations of people’s judgements. Basically, I don’t like planning things because I worry they will be rubbish and nobody will turn up and I will be sat alone in a room filled with balloons and broken dreams.
I may be slightly laughing at myself but I am also deadly serious.
But equally I don’t ever want my daughter missing out because I dislike certain situations, so party planning it is.
This one was made extra-specially stress inducing because when I started planning it I didn’t know if we would be able to be back in our house or not, so I didn’t have a set venue. Everything I planned had to be moveable at a moments notice.
It also had to be minimal budget.
