I got this certificate for a free birthday party at the Black Diamond Gym for 10 participants at a fundraiser for a cancer patient and his family. But since I'm such a cheapskate, I decided I couldn't possibly waste any of those 10 spots. That meant I needed to over-invite. I chose the random number of 13, thinking that would be perfect. I just assumed that since the party was 3 or 4 miles away in Daybreak that we would have some parents who just couldn't be bothered.
I was wrong.
Everyone showed up and by the time we added in my two little ones (Scout had kept the final invitation for herself since we needed the waiver attached to it), we were at 15. First just let me say that I believe little brothers and sisters should be free. They didn't force any extra work on the part of the hostess. I brought the cupcakes, so there was no additional expense there. They just sort of followed the girls around and I had to pay TWELVE BUCKS EACH for them!!
But it turned out fine. Scout was very happy to have all of her friends there and I didn't have to clean up either before or after the party. I made the cupcakes, but Princess made the frosting and did the decorating, so actually, it was an amazingly fun and
Other than that check I had to write for another $60...
