Again it was a beautiful day filled with sunshine and blue skies! I bought our food and drink in a couple of trips as I had to get fresh buns from the supermarket. I spent just under £40 for the food to host a party for 5 adults and 6 children. So I decided to buy a pink paddling pool. It is nice and smallso it is easy to fill and doesn’t waste too much water. Having said that, I do re-use the water to water the plants after the children finish playing.
Today is the first day of the school holidays and it was a mad day! I invited a couple of Mr K’s friends and their mothers plus two close friends along. As there are two toddlers too, I started the BBQ and cooked most of the food before they came. This was for safety, from the hot BBQ and the smoke. I bought a couple of disposable BBQ trays and propped them up on top of some loose bricks to prevent it scorching the patio. To fan the coals, I borrowed the children’s hand fan! They are so handy for hot weather or BBQs! This is my School Holiday Charcoal Challenge.
The children had a great time eating the hotdogs and snacks while the adults tried our SodaStream non-alcoholic Margarita Cocktail and chatted about Philips VisaPure and Lumea Precision Plus! This is in anticipation for the beauty party which I’m really looking forward to hosting next Sunday.
Thanks to MoneySupermarket for giving us £50 to spend on this great party! All the children had fun eating and playing with our water slide and paddling pool. At the end of the day, the children were soaked with water and the adults were soaked with perspiration running after them!
