  • make cheap food in big batches (spaghetti, lasagna, etc), make your own cake, have it at a park where ur house wont get trashed and kids can play all they want.

  • Tell everyone it's pot luck. Make sure that EVERYONE brings something the enough to feet 4-6 people. Or canel this party and make a new date. And tell your MIL to stay out of the inviting thing.

  • Hi! If youre comfortable in asking every one to bring their share. then you would be fine. Just make it all healthy. Fruits and veggies and variety of dips, cheese and pepparoni on crackers, get the cake from sam's club or some nice bakery where they make good -big - cheap cake, 2 0r 3 big salad, get some frozen pizzas, frozen chicken wings, fruit punch, chips no heavy meal - it takes time to cook - just snaks and cheap liquer, . Big soda's papper plates and cups walla your done.
