I thought of all the parties I've attended in the last five years especially those of my friends' kiddos. They were all great in their own way. They had all sorts of party gimmicks much to the the delight of the kids and the parents too! There's the old fashion cotton candy machine or an ice cream stand or sometimes a bubble machine. There would also be clowns and lots of games and prices. And how about adding a popcorn machineto the fun? Wouldn't that be great?
