- Wedding: September 2010
I’m cheating on my wedding and planning my 30th birthday party *gasp*!!!! BUT I’ve become somewhat exhausted and need a helping hand here. I’m ridiculously excited and have named it my “perfect 10” birthday (my birthday being 10-10-10). I want to have a lot of fun, be a bit goofy, eat great food, spend time with friends and family. And this is literally a month after our wedding, so chances are this may be the first time we see a lot of people after our honeymoon. SO here’s where I need a hand I need an idea for a venue (I’m in Toronto) or a good location for this party (ie a bowling alley?), some ideas for activities, etc. Here’s my list of requirements:
- Great food: I have a good caterer, but I’d like to have a buffet style meal (with apps of course and a HUGE amount of desserts). So we’ll need some seating, but not formal sit down type of dinner.
- Room for mingling and catching up
- Maybe some dancing? Great music is a must, so I’m thinking this will lead to dancing.
- Some sort of activity. I’d love to get crazy and have inflatable bouncy castles, etc but given that it’s October in Toronto, being outside is not a likely possibility.
Any ideas? Been to any great parties? I’d love to have a picnic at the Toronto Zoo but they only offer outdoor picnic areas, otherwise I’d be right on board including the meet and greet with the animals! Unfortunately we don’t have an aquarium or something else neat like that here otherwise that would be next on the list. Help!
