Got an Answer?
I know it may sound lame, but what about going for High tea or lunch with grandpa and grandma.. something a bit different a bit nice.
For my 21st a had a list of things that I wanted to do and my mum and I spent the weekend away doing them. It was very special to spend that time with my mum. I had adventure based stuff and we spent the weekend in queenstown nz but you could have a pamper weekend in the city or whatever your daughter is into.
Is there any special memories she has with her grandparents or places she went with them? And woth you of course.
Such as grandma always baked cookies with her... get them to do it
A special park they took her too.... have a picnic morning tea there
Special card or baord games they played... get them out
Get the drift???
Have a trip down memory lane Day and do all the things that meant to such to your daughter over the past 18 years.
I have a January baby and I get your pain, I like the idea of celebrating in February and there is nothing wrong with that. As for the day itself what activity does she like that you could do together? Id make a huge day of it, a big buffet breakfast with champs, a lovely dinner with her grandparents, etc
Is there an option to have a family do later on in the month too?
I don’t know how an 18th birthday could be made special with only grandparents...lovely I’m sure but maybe wont have the fun factor like an 18yo would be expecting. Even a February party would be acceptable just send out “save the date” messages from now.
