1st Birthday Party Checklist

The twins' 1st birthday is coming up soon - June 28. I know it's still months away, but planning early has its benefits :) I have started canvassing for possible suppliers. I have also identified our budget for the party. All wise mommies know that when planning a party, you need to have a Checklist.
