Any Ideas?? And a RAK!

It's that time of year when I have to play "Party Coodinator" & I'm coming up empty. You see this kid.....
Marissa dressed as Princess Jasmine at the "Pirate & Princess Party" in the Magic Kingdom.
is turning 7 next month & I've been nagged by her doting father about planning the "event". Frankly, I'm drained. I feel like it's been one thing after another since school started. I finish one project/holiday & something else lands in my lap. So I say again, I'm drained.

I need to come up with an idea for her school party (we have a big party at the house in between both girls birthday's for family). I don't want to have it at home since like I said I'm drained & would rather have it at a "place" that would handle the activities, the kids & oh yeah, the mess!!!

Last year we had it this Ice Cream/Candy shop & the girls made their own sundaes, sang karaoke, & made candy jewelry & stuff. Everyone had fun & it was relaxing for me!! So I'm asking for ideas so I can lay them on the soon-to-be-birthday-girl/diva.

This one.....

Gianna shaking her pom poms while waiting to see the "High School Musical 2" show at Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios)

will be 4 in June & I'm up in the air about her school party. She goes to pre-school in the next town & she'll only be going to Kindergarten with about 2 of those kids so I'm not sure if I should just keep it simple & do the whole cupcake-party-in-school or try to have it at a place as well. Hmmmmmmmm. Decisions, decisions.....

So leave me a few ideas in the comments & if the princess picks your idea there might just be a prize for the 1st one to come up with the idea. So if you're a lurker LEAVE A COMMENT!! Other than that it'll be a toss up between the 2-3 people that read this!! LOL!! I'll leave it open until Thurs. night with the winner to be announced sometime Fri.

I have a few ideas. What about a tea room? M could invite a few close friends and have a little tea party. Or you could do a luau party and do a limbo game, have pineapple and other fruits on a stick. That's a few ideas I have.

hmmm??? a 7 yr old girl??? i have a 7 year old boy...i'll have to think on that one...however, i'm pretty sure that he's going to invite everyone in his class and soccer team and instead of presents (because he gets enough from close family/friends), he's going to ask for donations for the local no-kill animal shelter (after seeing oprah)...he did a food drive a few years ago.

michael's does a craft party...i know some cooking schools do kids' parties. a party at the zoo??

k will be 4 in june, too!! but not old enough for kindy. she's going to have a few little girlfriends over and have a princess party. she wants to color/paint pillowcases.

okay, i've got to go to bed...good luck with that;0)
