Today was the first time I went to birthday party where I had to LEAVE THE PARTY to go get some food.
The birthday was in a clubhouse. There were about 15 girls (most were about 7 years old). There were maybe 8 moms.
The food consisted of:
1 bowl of Chips (not a big bowl)
4 bags of microwave popcorn
4 pizza's in the kitchen (and they would only bring one pizza out at a time and I was afraid to ask for more)
My friend and I (we carpooled) LITERALLY left the party, drove to Trader Joes, bought artichoke dip and cheese and crackers, drove back to the party and ate.
The monkeys had a GREAT TIME - a mom was painting nails, they played charades, they did art and crafts and decorated their own cupcakes!
But REALLY....This is the FIRST time I had to go and buy food to go to a party!!
I get it - you're not wealthy. But they had money to buy a ton of decorations??
At LEAST have a veggie or fruit platter from Costco!!
