Flow of party
Q: How does the party flow?
A: As the guests arrive the birthday child is encouraged to welcome his or her friends and show them all the fun to be had. We will play some organized games for about hour and 20 minutes and then I will twist balloons. Now it is time for cake! Yeah! The guest of honor will then open presents. All of this is flexible. I want you to have as much control as you want.
