Almost all of the delicious food was made my Ivan's mom and her husband who is a chef. Everything was absolutely delicious and it was so nice that I was able to focus on desserts without having to worry about dinner-ish foods. Thank you guys!
Even though the party was no longer a surprise, we still went forward with the plan of getting Ivan out of the house (thank you Ryan & Kyle) before the party so that I could get the house set up and decorated. I had the help of my mom and a few friends and although I like to think that I can do everything myself it was really nice to have some extra hands.
Now, I'm going to risk sounding like a jerk to tell you that I made so many signs for this party so that I wouldn't have to repeat myself 100 times to people asking me the same questions. Hosting parties stresses me out a ton and people asking me a lot of questions just adds to that stress. Let me tell you that those signs were very helpful and informative and I did not get asked many questions. Let me also tell you that there were more signs than just these ones. Yeah, I'm crazy, what are you going to do about it?
Ivan had a great time at his party and I am really happy that so many of our friends and family could join us. As much as parties stress me out I love when people have a good time together.
Are you able to pull off surprise parties or are you a huge blabbermouth like I am?
