Princess Edamame\’s Parties

You CAN have a great party – just learn from my mistakes!

Annual Fourth of July Party is On its Way!!

This year, I am really excited about our annual 4th of July Extavaganza.  And here is one of the reasons:  I found these great invitations at  They look and feel just like concert tickets, and you can fully customize them.  They are also less expensive than most other pre-printed invitations.  And when you work full-time, are mommy to a toddler, and send out over 60 invitations, handwritten isn’t an option.  I was extremely happy with their service.

I’m also excited about the menu.  I’m not going to spoil it for those guests who read here, but we are really going back to BBQ basics.  And no, guys, we aren’t having mini-burgers again…

  3. I like the “event” look of those invitations. Nice choice! You are inviting 60 people/families to a BBQ? That’s an amazing undertaking!

  4. It’s really not so bad, FW – it’s all in what you serve. 🙂

    Plus, we invite 60 families, but some of those “families” consist of only 1 or 2 people, and many can’t or don’t attend. We usually get about 40 people who make it. But the nice thing is, it’s not the same 40 each year, so it mixes it up nicely.
