    “Everything on the party rack will be 8 to a package.” Elly must be thinking of something different from me, when I think of a “party rack”.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    The creation of “the dollar store” has been a boon to the party-organizing moms of North America. If there’s more in a package than we need, the cost is minimal. Besides, you can always use the leftovers later. On more than one occasion, I have served adult guests using Sesame Street paper plates!

    Yeah, I still have plates from both babies’ 1st birthdays. I think I’ll just have to use them for a picnic because no self-respecting kid will use them.

    I don’t think the guests care what kind of plates you use as long as there is food on them!

    I ran into this exact scenario yesterday, but while shopping for buttons. I needed 6 buttons to spiff up a blouse. Everything on the button card was 4 and 5 buttons. I walked out without a purchase. I had button sticker shock. The prices for nice buttons was very high.

    We’ve done Chuck E Cheese a few times and it worked out great. No planning, buying, cleaning up and the kids loved it.

    shudder I’ll take the aggravation over 2 hours in the 5th level of hell known as “Chuck E Cheese”

    Then she may as well allow her son to have the 15 guests he wants, the food won’t cost that much more, and she will not have to worry about as much left over Ice Cream and Cake.

    I buy my party stuff at a caterer’s supply house, everything comes in packs of 25 or 50 pieces, (or more,) and I will have enough leftovers so I can do other events with the same supplies. (Sorry, no Power Ranger, Tom and Angela, Hello Kitty or Wonder Woman plates, cups or napkins — I buy for multipurpose use.)

    Take good ear protection with you, there and Pizza-Time Theatre or Amazing Pizza.

    You might have done better going to a thrift store and buying a blouse just for the buttons.

    Funny you said that, Meowlin. The blouse came from the thrift store and I was loath to pay for buttons that cost twice what I paid for the blouse.
