Here is the question;
How do you do a fun birthday party for a tot's 5th birthday without all the 'gimme more' hoopla surrounding modern parties?
I hate the trend of bigger better and make sure you have a pony ride.
I also just can't bring myself to do the "two all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun" routine either. We are vegetarian and just don't want to buy into the plastic consumerism of the Golden Arches.
So help me out here people; How do I make my little girl's eyes light up magically whilst being true to my ideals of frugality and down to earthness?
