My week ended with a party

We have two birthdays in April. Mr 15 became Mr 16 earlier in the month and Miss 17 became Miss 18 yesterday. Here she is with her brother (Mr 21) at her carnival themed dress up party last night.

We had a bouncy castle, sideshows with prizes, music, food, a guest book, and lots of fun. Poor Miss 18 woke up with a sore throat and some kind of virus (So did I actually) but managed to enjoy herself even without a voice. Mrs 25 helped out with all the creative and design things and everyone else worked all week on costumes etc. Miss 18 was the lady clown from the tv show "Round the Twist". The only thing I managed to sew all week! I am looking forward to next week because I have no looming deadlines next week. Ahhh...... back to normal.

This year I had a great idea for a party. A nice touch to any celebration is Balloons. Decorating my party with Balloons enhanced the happy party atmosphere. Now you might first think of helium filled balloons, the latex (or rubber) kind or the Mylar (foil) type. I got a few of those nice Mylar balloons that coordinated to my party theme. For the other balloons, I went with a more economical solution that made a rich party décor look without a high price. Then I thought about all of this running around for balloons was not really what I wanted to do. What if the balloons broke before I got them home? What if I realized later I didn’t buy enough? Would I have enough time to go back to the store and buy all over again?
That’s when I listened to my friend who recommended to me a great company called Life O ' The Party. Since 1980 Life O’ The Party has been the place for Balloons, Décor and Entertainment for every occasion – anytime, anywhere, nationwide. The home for exquisite event décor, custom centerpieces and props, costumed messengers, party entertainers and so much more. When I called them they said no order is too big or too small and I liked that very much. Life O’ The Party has grown steadily to become the metropolitan area’s premier novelty telegram, balloon, DJ and entertainment company. They have appeared many times on television as well. They appeared regularly on the NBC hit series “ED,” Third Watch” and “Law and Order”, on the very first “The Morning Show” on CBS, on Entertainment Tonight (ET), USA Network’s “UP All Night” and Fox Television’s “Good Day New York.”
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2009 featured 15,000 of their balloons, while World Cup USA welcomed their balloons on the field at Giants Stadium in New York and Foxboro Stadium in w:st="on"Massachusetts for Opening Day festivities. In the movies, their balloons are featured in the blockbuster “Spiderman 3,” Ron Howard’s movie “Ransom,” “You’ve Got Mail” starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and Oliver Stone’s latest epic “w:st="on"World Trade Center.”
