Mom will be celebrating her 80th birthday in October and we’re planning to giving her a party just like what we did when she turned 75 five years ago. We already told her about our plans but I think she’s not ok with the idea of having a big party. Aside from it’s too expensive it will also require quite a handful of helpers to aid us in cooking and preparing.
We also thought of inquiring at catering services so that the caterer will just bring all their catering supplies and food at our house. No more hassle for us but mom don’t approve of it. She wanted to spare us with all those hard work and she told us that she wanted to just have a dinner or lunch at a restaurant with only family members attending.
We’ll see.. October is still far anyway, she might still change her mind.
