Friends and neighbours rallied round

Planning for the xmas 2015 party started months ago - ordering stuff online had to be done well in advance.I had to select songs for the occasion for which I had prepared folders and put them on the desk top. My pc did not let me down. Caterers were contacted and they did a fine job too.

The nuns at the Institute as always offered help whenever I asked for it and so did the neighbours. Blowing of balloons was done manually and for this a team from the Institute arrived the previous day. One of our neighbours did a good job of that.

We had to shift all furniture from the hall to make room for the party which again was done with their help. The 'stage' was all set which you can see in the video clip below

it sounds like it went very well, it always works out better when everyone pitches in

It's a great deal of preparation and very kind of you to do that each year.

That was a lot of gifts and balloons! Did you wrap them all yourself? Did you have to blow any of the balloons up yourself? It looks like Preiti helped to deflate them.

It was fun too when everyone enjoyed helping around.

I have been organzing events all my life and I have always enjoyed the planning more than the event itself.

Preiti our pet actually inaugurated the event by bursting one balloon

There were 110 gifts wrapped by one of my helpers.The goodie bags needed to be filled up too which was a lot of work and for this I got help from a friend apart from my helper.

I did not blow any balloons (lol)

I am glad to hear that you had plenty of helpers and that the party went off nicely. I am sure that the children all enjoyed themselves and your generosity. .

It is heartwarming to read about how the neighbors came to the aid of the event and helped it to be a success.

The place had to be vacated of all furniture to make room for this event and put back after the event was over. emoticon :smile: I was happy I could accommodate our guests in our hall. Some had their food in the garden.

I see the party was a success,How could it be otherwise when so much planning and effort have been put into it?

When everyone works together, the result is really overwhelming.
