You see I'm turning the big 3-0 in a few months and figured I better start thinking about what I'd like to do to celebrate.
I'm tossing up between two ideas at the moment:
1st idea is to have a cocktail party style shin-dig at home out on the deck.
Positives of this idea:
I can decorate to my hearts content, have control over the evening, it will be held on the deck and should be lovely spring weather. Could get some teens from down the road to wait and serve.
Negatives of this idea:
It's a bit of work for me, I don't want to be in the kitchen for half the night and I'd love to just chill out and chat and enjoy myself but I just know it will be like 'Oh Janette, where's the ___', 'Oh Janette, where's the bathroom', 'Oh Janette, someone's just spilled something everywhere, where can we get something to clean it up'... etc etc. :)

2nd idea is to have a dinner at a little known sailing club in Manly. People would just turn up and order their meal from the bistro and we would put a few hundred on a bar tab.
Positives of this option:
No fuss, no clean up, no running around, no cooking, beautiful location.
Negatives of this option:
Wouldn't be able to decorate or minimal decorating, not as much control over the evening.
What do you think??? What would you do? Any other suggestions?
Thanks for your help ladies!
