I am planning b'day party for my Lo which is in summer. I do not plan on dinner but lunch outside and pool side + cake etc. Last yr I went to some american kids first yr bday same way except they did not have lunch. Only light snacks/cold drinks + meat /grilling+ beer etc. Usually for Indians, I know it is not acceptable, just snacks. I have seen many other indians, just doing after lunch, snacks etc. I also like to have bday celeb in the day as kids do not do well late night noise and gets uncomfortable and sleepy. Also I wanted to have farm animals invited for kids which I can do it day time. Drawback in lunch/pool side party, we can not wear traditional/ synthetic Indian which I bought for her outside. What are suggestions? How do you do?
