Birthday Party Troubles

My daughter's 3 rd birthday isn't until November 16th, but I have already started planning for it. She LOVES my little pony! She calls them her "ho-ho's", and she doesn't want to share them with anybody, haha, it's so cute! I love it so much!
I am ordering most of her party supplies off of www.whaleofaparty.com and some things off www.birthdayexpress.com plus what i have already bought to do her party favors with and decorations. Its gonna be like $200 for her plates, and some favors and i was gonna get her a my little pony pinata. i cant afford all of that so im gonna ask her daddy to help me pay for it, which i dont see as a big deal, thats her dad, he should help, i shouldnt have to do it all myself. but now that i have that ready to go, i dont know what to serve to eat? Im having a cake made by a woman that lives near me named janet, but other than than im stuck, anyone with some help for me would make my day!

  • Hot dogs, Mac n cheese, or maybe some digorno pizzas there like 5 dollars a piece at walmart.
    Its a kids party so yyou could get away with that!!!!!!
    To save some money on decor don't buy my little pony plates napkins or cups the actual decorations will be good enough. Maybe give the b day girl her own special cup and the big white no frills kind are alot easier to write names on for the other little kids.

  • You are spending how much money on paper goods that will go in the trash! Let me gve you a little hint, the solid color stuff is much higher quality paper than the printed stuff. Buy a few key items with your pony print. Then pick a matching solid color for everything else especially the napkins. Printed napkins are always crap. Example buy the pony cups but plain plates and napkins because you can't see the pony when the food is on the plate. There is really no reason to go nuts. Do the pinata. That will be memorable. The rest of it is just background noise.

  • For my kids birthdays I have done the following: make your own subs, grilled hotdogs/hamburgers/brats, one time I made chili, and just this last month we did BBQ (sloppy joe) sandwiches. I usually have chips, potato salad, fruit and dip, veggies and dip, for sides...
