I have a very special little princess. I find that every year my little princess wants a party filled with sparkles and magic.

This is what I did, and this is what I spent.
Disclosure- I received birthday party supplies from BirthdayExpress.com to help facilitate this review, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own 🙂

Then I thought if I had checklist I could easily keep track. The worst thing is having all the information for a party written on random items in my purse. I am so guilty of having the random items in my purse with notes across them.
Birthday Parties are always fun for the birthday boy or girl but sometimes as the parent it can not be so fun. We spend weeks planning, organizing, cleaning, and before we know it the party is over and we didn’t get to enjoy any of it. We clean our house again when it is all over and wonder what we can do different next time. One of the best ways to cut down the stress is to host the party at an offsite location.
