Have you seen this news about Suri Cruise's planned £13,000 birthday party?
I am currently planning Rachel's 6th Birthday Party to her own very particular requirements, with a budget of £130. That means that Rachel's birthday budget is about 1% of Suri Cruise's birthday budget.
So how about we do a compare and contrast, here goes.
Rachel: High School Musical 3
Big Impact Items:
Rachel: large cut outs of Gabriella and Troy
Suri: giraffes and elephants (and associated poo!)
Rachel: local church hall
Suri: back garden (of a huge mansion in Beverley Hills)
Rachel: mummy controlling clips of HSM3, playing music and running party games
Suri: professional actors
Rachel: about 30 of her class mates and friends
Suri: who knows, the sky's the limit, but they'll all be ab fab darling
Rachel: traditional sandwiches and crisps and grapes and cakes, all made by me
Suri: catered by someone spectacular I'm sure
Rachel: our own design
Suri: a professionally designed and produced masterpiece
So which would you prefer?
I know my choice, and I know Rachel's choice too, I wouldn't swop places for the world.
