This is a follow up to 5 Ways to Transform Your House Party into a Green Party
To put it short, the party was a blast!
One friend had this to say after reading the original post:
I felt all warm inside reading this. I just had the chance to AFTER attending this party and can only say that what this woman is talking about it the real.
The party was fantastic. We were there for 5 HOURS! Me and my husband -oh yea- and the kids, haha, had a blast. The food was amazing. There was a little dance party with dress-up dresses and an audience, there was lot of great conversation and connecting with adults and kiddies. And I am pretty sure Elo had a small amount [of garbage] to throw away.
A party to remember forever and ever, Amen!

This is what I wrote to our guests afterwards:
We want to thank you for making [our daughter’s] day so special. This was her first “real” birthday party and your kindness and generosity made it memorable for our entire family.
We are grateful, first, for you just being there with your smiles and hugs. The adults were so helpful in keeping the children occupied (and safe). And it warmed my heart to see so many of you engaged in (what looked like) deep conversation! The children got along so nicely and it looked like they had a blast!
We are also grateful for the food you brought to share: fruit, desserts, birthday cake, bread, salads… And, although we didn’t expect any gifts, she received some really thoughtful ones: cute clothes, two great books, a pair of sneakers, a pair of earrings, some puppets, a toy.
Last but not least, the party would not have been the same without the princess dress up clothes– they were a hit!
So thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing with us. It was beautiful to celebrate with you, our loved ones.
