As the years fly by you begin to realize the importance of spending time with family and friends. Throwing a last-minute party can be easy to do if you just concentrate on a few important things leaving you less stressed and with more energy for the actual party itself! Be the hostess with the mostess with these no-fuss ideas. Having a good old fashioned potluck can help curb the prep time for a party. Fix the main course yourself and enlist a few friends to help you with the side dishes. If you are determined to do it all yourself keep it simple by serving something easy like a taco night or spaghetti and garlic bread. Don’t overlook creating easy to make and serve dishes using your slow cooker too.

- Set up a chalkboard with instructions for guests and ask everyone to stick a photo into a guest book and leave a message for the birthday boy/girl. You will need an instant Polaroid-type camera.
- If you plan on dropping balloons, you can buy a balloon bag. You can also make your own balloon drop with this tutorial. We also have a balloon drop tutorial in our Family Birthday Celebrations.
