Thursday night was set as the date, and that day Debra started delivering the party supplies first thing in the morning.
Including Snow White, the pinata...
Later, Kimberly arrived to help decorate and set things up. Indra swung into action.
Let the decorating begin!
We didn't really know how many to expect, but when a pickup truck arrived and dropped off 50 folding chairs and two gigantic steel tables, we had an idea that this fiesta was going to be big.
It's not like in the U.S. where you drop off your child and come back later to pick them up. These children arrived with their moms, dads, siblings, aunts, grandmas, babies, everyone turns out.
We had everything set up in the back, but as it got darker the consensus was to move everything into the front yard where we have better outdoor lighting.
We figured there had to be 40 kids and about as many adults.
Of course there was food. The main dish was a huge pot of spaghetti and a lot of small sandwiches. And a cake!
The last official act of the evening was the Snow White pinata....Here she is posing with the birthday girl, 11 years old.
As you can imagine, there was quite a bit of wreckage left over after people headed home. No problem as Debra and her crew took over and picked up everything. And the next day she came over and cleaned the downstairs. A fun and interesting evening.
