First birthday party, what else do I need?

I'm going to put ice in a little kid pool and put all the drinks in that.

Here is the list:
Pepsi,Mt.dew, Sprite, Diet Coke, Bottled water, juice boxes, ice, biggest pack of hotdogs and burgers, cucumbers, carrots, celery, dressing/veggie dip, ketchup, mustard, relish, plates, cups, napkins, plastic forks/spoons/knives. CAKE!!! and maybe a pinata. Charcoal and lighter fluid for the grill.

What am I forgetting?

Yes I do really need that much pop, to please all the family, they all like something different.

  • Buns a fruit tray maybe? I always go all out for 1st bdays... and 2nd and 3rd! HAHA! We pick a theme and buy EVERYTHING that is available for that theme!! For our DD's 1st, we did sandwiches, fruit trays, veggie trays, cake, juice, soda...

    I don't see a need for a pinata for a 1yr. old but that's just me.

  • ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL!!!! My baby shower was a disaster because of alcohol, plus I'm not paying $50 for the alcohol permit.

  • I agree alcohol at a child's b-day party is completely tacky/trashy. I couldn't imagine doing that to my kids or at a baby shower!
