DH and I are just discussing DS's birthday party (in 2 weeks time because it totally crept up on us lol) and wondering what to do. This will be his first birthday at this school so we decided to do a little something for him.
My initial thought was the usual BBQ in a park somewhere (thinking Queens Park for those that know Toowoomba) but DH is keen on having DS's 2 best friends stay the night. I know one of the boys would be fine because he's stay with us on a number of occasions. The other boy I'm not so sure about. He and his family have only been in Australia for about 6 months. While I'm happy to have him here I'm just not sure how his parents would feel. With that in mind I'm leaning more towards a day time party with the boy who has stayed here before sleeping over.
I'm a little unsure about food too. The day is about DS so I'd love to cater it to suit us (vegetarian) but then I don't know if the other kids will eat that sort of food. I know the boy who stays with us is ASD and has a lot of problems trying new foods so we tend to feed him what we know he likes (sausages and chips, though he did manage to eat a quorn sausage roll, baked potatoes and broccoli last time!!). I don't know!! I wouldn't even know where to start with easy party type vegetarian foods.
Thoughts on both issues would be greatly appreciated.
