FOR THE LITTLE ONES
Adult parties with cocktails are great, but let’s not forget about the younglings! When sending out invites for dinner parties, be sure to include one for the kids as well. Plan a kid’s sized menu in advance – a nice, simple tomato pasta, cream soup, and dessert for a seasonal treat will do. And while you and your guests chat, be certain the kids have a means of entertaining themselves. Toys, balloons, Christmas crackers and presents are a great way for them to play.
And if you want to indulge the child in you, join them. You’re never too old to swordfight with balloon sabres.
