Making Friends With A Justin Bieber Theme Party

The beginning of the end for my food hysteria came when I looked into the face of my newborn son and realized that if I had MY way, he would never know the joy of an A&W root beer float. Why that particular treat, I have no idea. I had spent the previous 8 years on the food hysteria bandwagon. Then, in one moment of clarity, I said to hell with it. ALL!!

If you’re using film, be sure you have more than enough so you don’t have to run out to the store in the middle of the action. Check and replace batteries if necessary. If your camera requires it, set it to match the ISO on the film.

When you clear the main course, offer desert, coffee and cordials. Again, be specific by describing your favorite desert briefly but in detail. Also, know your audience. If your guests are a family with small children, desert is almost a guaranteed sell and the parents may enjoy an after-dinner cordial, glass of wine or coffee while the kids destroy the cake and ice cream. Again, knowledge of your bar items is a must because if somebody asks for a glass of port or a liqueur such as Sambuca, you should know whether or not your restaurant carries it. Also, you can’t recommend it if you don’t know that you have it!

Other types of small, inexpensive toys that can be included in the party cracker are small toy cars, costume jewelry, plastic maze games, kazoos, stickers, and high bouncer balls. You can also include fun stationary items like shaped erasers and pencil sharpeners.

A garden party held at night will benefit from the use of glowsticks and glowsticks products. Those occasional games of night tag are a lot easier and safer if the players each have a glowstick for guidance. You can also plug together longer glow necklaces and string them along the outdoor furniture. The red and blue glowsticks make a fun alternative to sparklers during the Independence Day celebration.

Nothing flattens a kid’s party faster than games that are too old or too young for the party-goers. Keep your party games age appropriate. This is easily accomplished by letting your child select a few games they like. Be sure to include a few games appropriate for both girls and boys or create different versions for boys and girls separately, and then pit the two teams against each other for a special prize.

Some children open their birthday gift as soon as their guest arrives and hands the gift to them. Sometimes opening gifts is the first activity. Both of these methods are placing too much attention on the gift and not on the guest.

I’ve ruined birthday parties by refusing cake and ice cream; I’ve insulted relatives by condemning what they set before me on the table, silently of course, but still. I eliminated caffeine, alcohol, and even black pepper from my diet, and felt obligated to inform the World of the danger they were putting themselves in with the foods they ate.

Well, that leads to a slight problem. There are multiple companies selling the game trucks. So, if your neighbor wants to enter the business and your company will not sell him a game truck, nothing is going to stop him from buying from one of the other companies who sell game trucks. In that regard, is there really any such thing as exclusive territories?

Let your little Princesses have a tea party. You can decorate with balloons or even using necklaces to drape and bracelets hanging. I would even use a tiara as a centerpiece.

Each team of two should have five minutes to draw and paint the portrait of the poser using watercolor paints, pencils (colored or regular), and crayons.

Deprivation is the ruin of many a diet, so go ahead and occasionally have a small portion of dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth – it’ll make you more likely to stick to your diet. Just don’t overdo it: think of it as a treat, not a staple. Once or twice a week is reasonable. Choose your occasions wisely, plan ahead, and don’t skip a meal out of guilt. That way, you won’t feel so deprived that you turf the whole diet and stuff your face with truck loads of forbidden cake and ice cream.

There are many other opportunities for all of us to reach out and give someone a rare gift – our thoughtfulness. Why not visit a local hospital and ask the nurses if any patients are all alone and have had no visitors. Stop by those rooms and tell those patients that you came specifically to see them and to cheer them up.

Girls Birthday Party Ideas (Ages 8-12)

Instead of giving sweets as party favors, give out little toys. Make the main focus of your party fun activities and no one will miss the fact that there aren’t an abundance of sweet snacks everywhere. Some fun activities include party games, crafts, scavenger hunts, or even playing outside. If you don’t want to plan these types of activities, host your child’s party at a skating rink or play park. The kids will be so busy, that a lack of snacks won’t bother them.

I remember when hydrogenated oils, even natural ones like palm and coconut oils, were sure to drop you in your tracks. Now everyone’s slurping up palm and coconut oils because some quack decided they’re good for you!

Hogwash. Starch doesn’t make you fat. Kilojoules do. Many high-starch foods – bread, rice, pasta, cereals, potatoes and beans – are actually low in fat and kilojoules. The killer is when your portion size is enough to feed a small herd of elephants, or when you slather it in high-fat, high-kilojoule toppings like butter, sour cream or mayonnaise.

Often emotional eaters do not realise what is going on because it is very socially acceptable to celebrate with food. We do a lot of eating in family gatherings, barbecues, lunches with friends, birthdays and holiday gatherings. We see cake and ice cream as rewards and eat these types of foods because we ‘deserve’ it, and we all have fond memories of special treats when we were children.

Again, the guest may not be thinking about wine until you suggest it. And they may all be red wine drinkers and so might say, “No, we would prefer two bottles of red.” You just boosted your check by two bottles of wine. When you bring the wine, pour for them. This not only provides excellent service but also lets you know when the bottle is empty. When you pour the last glass, offer to bring another bottle.

I take a page from Tony Bourdain’s playbook when it comes to dining with others: you graciously accept what is offered to you by your gracious host. You eat 99.9% of your meals at home anyway, so be a good, honored guest. Add to the love and frivolity of the table. It won’t kill you. Really. Go home and live on nuts and berries the rest of the time. It’s okay. But, please, manners, huh?

Oh, we’ve got omnivores. Sort of. I’m part of that group, though even among omnivores there’s still the organic-only bunch, the no-GMO, no-HFC, no-sugar/white flour bunch; and the no-beef-or-pork-or-lamb-but-chicken-and-fish-are-consumable bunch. Hmmm.
